Battlefield 1, the latest entry in the series developed by DICE now available on PC and consoles, is soon going to receive its first DLC pack named They Shall Not Pass, which will include new maps and more. One of the additional maps included in the DLC pack will feature a rather interesting Easter Egg that fans of action role-playing game will surely enjoy.

This Easter Egg is a clear reference to the Dark Souls series bonfires, and it will be found in the Rupture map. Players can also pick up the Cavalry Sword and equip it until they are killed. You can check out a short video showcasing this Easter Egg right below.

The four maps that will be included in the Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass DLC will be Verdun Heights, Fort Vaux, Soissons and the already mentioned Rupture.

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.

Fort Vaux

The first big engagement inside a fort during World War 1 takes place in the dark underworld of Fort 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!


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.


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.

Battlefield 1 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
