Battlefield 1 Servers Down For Latest Update
The latest Battlefield 1 update will add the Prise de Tahure map, which has previously only been available to owners of the Premium version or the They Shall Not Pass DLC.
There's also the chance following the update for players who don't own the Premium package to trial out other DLC maps. Starting on January 16 until January 22, all players can test out their skills on all maps from the In the Name of the Tsar and They Shall Not Pass DLC. You can also partake in the Gallipoli Trials from The Turning Tides.
The Turning Tides is the next DLC pack for Battlefield 1 which launches at some point in January. Future content later this year includes the final expansion of the game, called Apocalypse.
