Battlefield 1 Gets Around To Adding The French

The decision to leave the French out of Battlefield 1 at launch was always a weird one, considering the country’s enormous contributions to the war, but whatever: they’re now being added as part of the game’s first expansion, called They Shall Not Pass.


Due out in March, it’ll include new maps based around the Battles of Verdun (including the heroic defence of Fort Vaux) and Soissons. There’s also mention of “something big” surrounding the battle between the Americans and Germans in the village of Fismes, which probably means a big-ass railway cannon.

There aren’t any screens or video of the expansion, but there is some concept art, which is as incredible as the rest of the work done for the game.
