Battlefield 1's newest Turning Tides expansion now has a confirmed release date of Dec. 11 for the first wave of content.

As outlined on the site that detailed the reveal, the new Turning Tides DLC is going to be split into two separate content releases. From amphibious battles to the addition of several new weapons, those who have the Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 will be able to access the content first across two new maps on Dec. 11.

Following the initial release of the content on Dec. 11, the second rollout will begin sometime in January. An exact date for the rest of Turning Tides' content hasn't been provided, but those with the Premium Pass will again get a head start with the new features.

"As mentioned, Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners get a two-week head start with Battlefield 1 Turning Tides," the update from the DLC post read. "Once their head start with the North Sea content has ended, Battlefield 1 Turning Tides will be available to purchase as a standalone expansion pack."

Between the December and January content releases, weapons such as the M1917 Trench Carbine, Maschinenpistole M1912/P.16, Farquhar-Hill, M1917 MG, Carcano M91 Carbine, and Type 38 Arisaka will be added alongside the new maps. Unlocks such as new Dog Tags, Service Stars, Codex Entries, Medals, and Ribbons will also be made available alongside service assignments and specializations, but the new Conquest Assault game mode is one of the bigger parts of the expansion. It puts a unique spin on the Conquest mode that players are already familiar with by forcing players to battle for certain important areas around the maps.

The release date of the expansion is welcome news for those who already have the Premium Pass, but it isn't coming as a complete surprise. Last week, the release date for the expansion was accidently listed on part of the game's website that previewed the content. It listed Dec. 11 as the start date for certain players as well, but it was quickly taken down.

Check out the expansion's full details from the site and look for it when it's first made available on Dec. 11.
