The question is, how will the developer do that?
The French DLC - They Shall Not Pass - has no release date as of this moment, but it's noted to drop sometime next month. It's definitely one of the most complex Battlefield 1 modes, so you're probably going to want to check out the video above, which explains how it all works. Frontlines combines Conquest and Rush into one game, with players fighting over chained control points.
If the team defeats the other team during the flag objective, the latter needs to defend its base to ensure that no one can enter their base. The two teams can use their telegraph machines to ask for an airstrike.
In addition to the new setting, They Shall Not Pass also serves up new weapons and a new class, four maps and a fresh game mode, Frontlines. The game mode will only end once the two telegraphs are finally destroyed by the winning team or if the losing team concedes. But anyways, he does go on about the RibeyRolles 1918, the new tank, the new stage and more in the video below. Other weapons listed to be in the DLC consist of the Lebel Model 1886 Scout rifle, the Chauchat Support gun, the Sjögren Inertia Assault shotgun, and the MLE 1903 Extended pistol.
Oh, and all that Frontlines footage takes place on the new Rupture map. The map is as big as Verdun Heights and used as tank graveyards. They Shall Not Pass is scheduled for March.
DICE had already announced the names of the weapons, but they hadn't revealed what they would look like in-game.
