EA is making their Nivelle Nights map available to all Battlefield 1 players. The map was previously only available to Battlefield 1 Premium Pass and They Shall Not Pass DLC owners. Operation Campaigns are also scheduled to deploy soon.
Battlefield 1's first night map - Nivelle Nights launched back in June and was available to Battlefield 1 Premium Pass and They Shall Not Pass DLC owners.
If you are not a part of those two crowds, fret not as you too will soon get to run all over the the muddy battlefields around Malmaison and Soupir as French and German batteries prepare to yet again support their troops on the contested ground.
You see, EA has revealed that all players will be getting the map in early November. This means that you should be getting Nivelle Nights any day now.
The map recreates the night of October 23, 1917, when "the French Battle of La Malmaison began. It was a carefully planned offensive with limited goals, focused on capturing the strategically important and heavily fortified Chemin des Dames ridge. With advanced artillery tactics and tank support, the French forced the Germans to give up the ridge by November 1" explains the post.
In other Battlefield 1 news, Operation Campaigns will also kick off in early November. Once the Campaigns have been deployed you will be given a chance to play "Eastern Storm".
Eastern Storm is the first Operation Campaign to be available in Battlefield 1. Operation Campaigns in general will serve to "expand on the frontline clashes between attackers and defenders, stringing together multiple Operations and adding unique rewards to the mix" says the .
Eastern Storm in particular combines the Operations from Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar: Brusilov Offensive and Red Tide. The first Operation Campaign will be available to everyone who claims ownership over a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass, and the owners of the standalone Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar expansion.
