Battlefield 1’s Turning Tides Expansion is Free For the Next Week
It’s time for another shot of free Battlefield 1 DLC. EA is giving away all of Battlefield 1’s add-on content, one expansion at a time – back in May they made the They Shall Not Pass and In the Name of the Tsar expansions available for free for a limited time, and now they’re doing the same for Turning Tides. As before, you get to keep the DLC if you download it during the free promotional period. Check out a Turning Tides trailer, below.
As the name implies, Turning Tides focuses on naval battles, adding the Royal Marines faction, the Infiltrator Elite Class, and the usual collection of new maps and goodies. Here’s the full rundown:
New Game Mode: Conquest Assault
Relentlessly press the offensive – or hold your ground. Conquest Assault sees attackers and defenders fight over key areas, exclusively controlled by the defending team as the match starts.
Take part in the British amphibious assault on the Gallipoli peninsula in 1915. Battle it out in Cape Helles and Achi Baba.
British Empire: Royal Marines
Don the characteristic blue uniform of the British Empire’s elite naval troops and charge into battle with the new Royal Marines.
The Infiltrator Elite Class
Hide in plain sight and move faster across the battlefield with the Infiltrator. Take advantage of a sprint boost while calling in artillery strikes and deploying a mobile spawn for friendly troops.
New Destroyer And Airship
Rule the waves with the L-Class Destroyer. Jump into one of four seats and use cannons, torpedoes, AA guns, and mines. To dominate the air, spawn on the new, nimble C-Class Airship.
- Cape Helles – Storm the beaches of the Gallipoli peninsula with the allied powers or defend the Ottoman Empire’s fortifications. Master the land, air, and sea interplay to win the defining battles.
- Achi Baba – Throw yourself into the joint allied assault on the Gallipoli peninsula of 1915 in an intense, fast, and infantry-focused setting. Take part of a treacherous push for a prominent hilltop position.
- Heligoland Bight – The Great War at sea. Engage in an epic naval clash as the Royal Marines and German Navy pit dreadnoughts, destroyers, and aircraft against each other while infantry viciously battle by the iconic red cliffs of Rocky Cove.
- Zeebrugge – Take part of the daring British raid on the Belgian port of Bruges-Zeebrugge with rough waves and a vast German mole as backdrop. Fight at sea, in the air, and in close-quarter infantry environments.
