Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass

Battlefield 1 producers sat down and wrote a game plan for the future of their game. It includes new monthly updates and the next expansion to hit the game.

Dice's Battlefield 1 Executive Producer, Aleksander Grøndal and Battlefield 1 Producer Andrew Gulotta, detailed the plans for future updates, new additions and proper game expansions in their "The Road Ahead" post.

Let's see what the future holds for the World War 1 game:

Monthly updates

It's out with the old and in with the new. Spring seems like the perfect time to get rid of the Seasonal updates and go down a more monthly path. The Spring Update, which is coming soon, is going to be the last Seasonal Update. The update which will come after the spring one is going to be called the May Update. The Community Test Environment will, of course play a big part in assessing which features are worthy of making it into the game.

What content will these updates bring

The Spring Update will come with Platoons. That means you can team up with friends and wreak havoc on the battlefield "as one unit". No information was given on when the update will drop.

The May Update will be less rich in terms of content but if quality of life improvements are your jam, then May's got you covered. When they say "quality of life", what they really mean is, in this case: better flow into matches, with Operations brought to the foreground of things; and ironing out the kinks in the gameplay.

Battlefield 1 Rent-a-Server Program will also be getting a feature update soon.

Expansions

The site says three more are in the works: In the Name of the Tsar, Turning Tides, and Apocalypse. Each one will come with its own set of new maps, weapons, vehicles, and game modes.

The next expansion to storm the battlefields is In the Name of the Tsar. When it drops, it's bye bye to the balmy, sunny weather of Verdun, and hello bitter cold of Russia. You'll trade in the Western for the Eastern front and fight shoulder to shoulder with the Russian army.
