  • Zeebrugge (map): 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.
  • Royal Marines (British army): Don the characteristic blue uniform of the British Empire's elite naval troops and charge into battle with the new Royal Marines.
  • C-Class Airship: Deliver death from above in a nimble airship with room for a pilot with three gunners.

In other Battlefield 1 news, the next expansion for Apocalypse kicks off next month. As per our previous coverage, "there will be five new maps introduced, including scenarios that take place in Passchendaele, River Somme and Caporetto. For good measure, there will also be two maps that are devoted to dogfight battles, in case you feel like showing off aerial superiority. You can shoot enemies down in the Razor's Edge map, or feel the glowing sun on your face as you fly into London Calling. And if you feel like staying in the air, a new Air Assault mode will also be introduced, where you can compete against players without having your feet touch the ground. On the Caporetto map, you'll also have access to two new bombers – the Hansa Brandenburg GI and the Airco DH10."
