Good news, shooters and looters. a post by Braddock on the Battlfield forums announced the release of its June update, which includes the new Nivelle Nights map, slightly earlier than expected. The update will also include various gameplay changes, as well as the introduction of Argonne Forest and Amiens as Frontline game mode accessible. Expect the official patch notes to release once the update drops, which is normally the case with updates like this.
The Battlefield 1 June Update will release at the following times:
- PC: Multiplayer servers offline for two hours starting at 12 a.m. PDT
- PS4: Mulitplayer servers offline for two hours stating at 2 a.m. PDT
- Xbox One: Multiplayer servers offline for two hours starting at 4 a.m. PDT
The big selling point to the June Update of Battlefield 1 will no doubt be the addition of the first night map, Nivelle Nights. Battlefield 1 players who purchased the Premium Pass will get this for free, as will those who purchased the They Shall Not Pass DLC as a standalone package.
Also in the June Update will be the inclusion of two Frontline game mode compatible maps called Argonne Forest and Amiens. Previously, Frontline was a DLC-only game mode, but there’s a chance that DICE will continue to push it to the vanilla maps in Battlefield 1.
Exiting the summer and moving into the fall, Battlefield 1 will get an expansion called In the Name of Tsar, which will bring new maps, vehicles, weapons, the Supply Drop game mode, and likely a huge batch of gameplay changes.
