DICE has revealed “Battlefield 1” details on Verdun Heights, Fort De Vaux, Soissons and Rupture. Players will likely get a chance to fight in the massive forest fires created by the Battle of Verdun. Players will have to fight for domination in the uphill battle towards the massive fortresses of Verdun. The Fort De Vaux map seems like a completely indoor map and the first engagement during World War 1 takes place inside the fort, in the dark underworld of Fort de Vaux. Here, French and Germans fight viciously with flame throwers, guns, grenades and bayonets.

The Soissons Map shows the beautiful French countryside in the early hours of a hot summer day. While the war rages on, there is also a thunderstorm brewing. One of the biggest tank assaults of World War 1 takes place in this part shown by the map as the French 10th Army moves to take back Soissons using their powerful Saint Chamond tanks. The “Battlefield 1” Rupture map takes the French army through poppy-growing battlefields where wreckage from previous tank battles is evident.
