NEW MAP: VERDUN HEIGHTS - The opening barrage of the Battle of Verdun created massive forest fires in which players will fight for domination. This is an uphill battle towards the massive fortresses of Verdun. A constant grinding struggle where the artillery never stops.
Where the forge and “the Devil’s Anvil” continues to consume even the bravest combatants. NEW MAP: FORT DE VAUX - The first big engagement inside a fort during World War 1 takes place in the dark underworld of Fort de Vaux. Down in the maze of dark galleries and wet stone corridors, French and Germans fight ferociously with grenades, guns, bayonets, and flamethrowers.
Watch your corners. NEW MAP: SOISSONS - Take part in one of the biggest tank assaults of World War 1. The French 10th Army moves to take back Soissons using their powerful Saint Chamond tanks.
Planes, tanks, and infantry clash in the beautiful French countryside in the early hours of a hot summer day. Only the thunderstorm is louder than the war. NEW MAP: RUPTURE - In dire need to capture key bridges across the Aisne river, the French find themselves back into battlefields where poppies grow over a rusty wreck from previous tank battles.
It might seem calm but this maze of steel beasts provides an excellent place for those who plan an ambush. As the sun sets over Fontenoy, the battle wakes up.
If you’re still playing Battlefield 1, you should definitely get They Shall Not Pass, as it offers two outstanding maps (and two decent ones) and truly amazing atmosphere. [05/2017, p.63]
Four new maps, a new game mode and the addition of the French Army deepen the experience in the best war first-person shooter of 2016. Finally we can witness the Verdun battle.
Solid expansion that replaces the dynamic battles with tenacious fights in the trenches.
They Shall Not Pass is a good start to making that season pass feel like it was worth the money, though I doubt it will pull many people into buying the full game.
They Shall not Pass is a good first DLC for Battlefield 1. It's a good thing France finally enters in the conflict, but it's sadly without any proper single campaign. As a multiplayer only DLC, it's still a very good one: the new maps are beautiful and the new vehicles bring intense fight, especially the behemoth 2C tank, a true monster! If you love BF1, you can rush full steam ahead.
Battlefield 1 is a brilliant fast-paced military shooter that I spent a lot of time playing, especially over the recent Christmas holidays. The additional content in “They Shall Not Pass” is fun to play, but it does leave you a bit sour when you look deeper into it and see so many assets which have been reused. On top of that this content also splits the community, and pressuring players to purchase the DLC or be left behind. There are much better ways to handle delivering extra content to players, unfortunately this isn’t one of them.
