All Battlefield 1 players can start using the Rupture folder from today. The map was previously only available to the owners of They Shall Not Pass DLC, the first extension for the military shooter.
Rupture revolves around the Second Battle of Marne, where poppies grow over rusty wrecks. In May, the Soissons expansion, also from the first extension, will also be available free of charge in coming months.
EA also announced that Battlefield 1 will get a new mode in June: Shock Operations. A mode in which 40 players compete for different areas, similar to the Operations mode.
Shock Operations can be played on five maps: Giant’s Shadow, Prize de Tahure, Lupkow Pass, Zeebrugge and River Somme.
Some of these maps above were only available as a purchasable DLC or along with season pass until this update and now they will be available for free to play in Shock Operations.
The official post on Battlefield website says
Today, you can tackle Rupture – a map taking place during the Second Battle of the Marne, characterized by its poppies growing over rusty wrecks. Coming in May, you’ll get to play on more maps with the hardened veterans of the French army making in a stand in a brutal defense of their homeland.
We’re continuing monthly updates for Battlefield 1 until June 2018, in which you can expect fresh content together with various tweaks and fixes for the player experience.
