DICE announces the new map “Giants Shadow” will be coming to Battlefield 1 this December, and it’s free!
While Battlefield 1 is already everything we could have hoped for and more. DICE have announced another map will be coming this year, which will be completely free to all players.
The new map, Giants Shadow, will take place in the Battle of the Selle. Which was fought during the ‘Hundred Days Offensive‘ towards the end of the war. After the Germans failed to take Amiens, featured in the Kaiserschlacht map, the Allies pushed back and broke through the German lines, ending the war 100 days later.
“Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide. Giants Shadow will be coming to Battlefield 1 as part of a free update in December.”
See you on the battlefield!
