Battlefield 1 Giant’s Shadow New Footage Showcases New Weapon And More; Community Test Environment Confirmed
In around one day, all Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners and those who have pre-ordered the first person shooter developed by DICE will soon be able to experience the brand new Giant’s Shadow map as well as more additional content such as a new weapon. A few hours ago, gameplay footage taken from the upcoming map has emerged online, featuring plenty of intense action.
The Battlefield 1 Giant’s Shadow gameplay footage, which can be watched right below, has been shared on YouTube by Westie and it showcases not only the upcoming map but also the Grenade Crossbow weapon which will also become available in the game very soon.
Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide. Giant’s Shadow will be coming to Battlefield 1 as part of a free update in December.
On a related note, the Battlefield 1 Community Test Environment has been recently confirmed for the game. Just like it was for Battlefield 4, the CTE will be used to test upcoming releases and updates for Battlefield 1.
Battlefield 1 Community Test Environment (CTE) is used for testing upcoming releases and updates for Battlefield™ 1. Our goal with BF1 CTE is to provide a place where we can evolve Battlefield together with the community. The content tested does not always represent final quality of the game. To use the BF1 CTE you need to first register in-game of BF1, where you’ll find the BF1 CTE test agreement.
Battlefield 1 is now available in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
