Electronic Arts and DICE have announced Battlefield 1 Revolution, an edition of the first-person shooter that comes with the game and the Premium Pass. In addition, DICE also revealed Battlefield 1 Incursions, a new intense gaming experience being developed in collaboration with players, and optimised for competition.
The Battlefield 1 Premium Pass includes four themed expansion packs, each filled with all new maps, new modes and more, making it the complete Battlefield 1 experience. Players will have immediate access to Battlefield 1 'They Shall Not Pass', featuring six maps including the game’s first night maps, Nivelle Nights and Prise de Tahure. Players can further expand the battle with Battlefield 1 Revolution in Battlefield 1 'In the Name of the Tsar' in September, partake in amphibious warfare in Battlefield 1 'Turning Tides' set to launch in December, and the most infamous battles of the Great War in Battlefield 1 'Apocalypse', available in early 2018. Those who purchase Battlefield 1 Revolution will also receive the Red Baron Pack, Lawrence of Arabia Pack and Hellfighter Pack which contain themed weapons, vehicles and emblems based on the famous heroes and units.
As for the new game mode, Battlefield 1 Incursions is a tight, teamplay focused competitive experience. Competitors will have to put their skills to the test in intense 5 vs. 5 matches, creating dramatic moments that include the signature Battlefield vehicle gameplay. Starting in September, players in the Closed Alpha will be able to choose from eight different kits (Trench Surgeon, Control Leader, AT Assault, Battle Mechanic, Mortar Support, Raid Leader, Shock Assault, Proximity Recon) on the modified Battlefield 1 Giant’s Shadow map, and rank up to gain access to improved weapons and abilities based on a combination of time and performance. More details on the competitive gaming structure and events will be shared in the coming months.
Battlefield 1 Revolution is now available on PS4, Xbox One and PC for $59.99.
