In this thread DICE show us some of the latest images for the upcoming expansion pack Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass but don’t really give us any information apart from the release date. The Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass expansion will be releasing sometime in March 2017.
The below images and information is taken from a Official post by DICE.
All images in this thread can be found in full size in our gallery.
Though we don’t want to give too much away at this point we have something special for you: concept exploration images from the DICE team. These images represent the studio’s vision of the battlefields you’ll encounter in They Shall Not Pass. Read on and learn what inspired the charred landscapes, muddy trenches, and close-quarter environments.
Around 1 million shells were fired in the opening barrage of the Battle of Verdun. This created massive forest fires around the fortified city and the battlefields surrounding it. Soldiers tell stories of being able to see these fires from far away. We really wanted to capture this initial fighting in a battle that came to be known as the Devil’s Anvil.
The initial fighting around Verdun quickly transformed villages like Samogneux and entire forests into shadows of their former self. Verdun turned into the longest battle of the war lasting 9 months which completely transformed it. We wanted our players to be part of these initial intense attacks in the cold February of 1916.
