Battlefield 1 developer DICE recently switched to a monthly update schedule for its WW1 shooter, and as part of this it's unveiled a new multiplayer map and teased future changes to the game.


The new map is Prise de Tahure, which is set in the autumn after the Nivelle Offensive. Here's the official blurb, from DICE:

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.

Expect Prise de Tahure to hit the Community Test Environment (CTE) soon.

Meanwhile, the already announced Nivelle Nights map comes out in June for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners. Again, here's DICE:

This night map is located at the muddy battlefields around Malmaison and Soupir. Bite and hold as your foe will fight for every inch of ground.

Back to the new monthly update schedule, and May's patch is coming soon. This should make fans of Operations extra pleased, DICE said. Expect playlists for the mode and easier access to get quickly into the action.

Battlefield 1's second expansion, In the Name of the Tsar, is due out late summer, and will be fully unveiled at E3 in June. This adds the Russian army, new maps, new weapons and vehicles.
