We’re still about a month away from the release of Battlefield 1’s first nighttime map, Nivelle Nights, but that hasn’t stopped developer DICE from announcing a second nighttime map that will soon be coming to the game’s community test environment.
The second map is titled “Prise de Tahure,” and below you’ll find an official description of the map courtesy of this recent post on the Battlefield website:
“Set in the autumn after the Nivelle Offensive, Prise de Tahure sees French troops desperately holding on to re-captured heights in the Butte-de-Tahure region. The frontline trench networks cut right through several villages facing obliteration from the constant skirmishing between German stormtroopers and French raiders. This is a war of attrition. Adaptability and tactics are the means to wear your adversary down.”
A release window for Prise de Tahure has yet to be confirmed, though it will likely arrive sometime after the launch of the Nivelle Nights map. The above post also confirms that Battlefield 1 will be getting an update in May that will bring some much-needed changes to Operations such as the inclusion of playlists, and options for getting into the fray more quickly.
Finally, the post confirms that Battlefield 1’s second expansion, “In the name of the Tsar,” will be playable during this year’s EA Play event which is set to be held on June 10th.
