DICE has announced that the second night time map for Battlefield 1 will be called “Prise de Tahure” or roughly translated as the “Storming of Tahure.” The news comes just a month after the first night map was revealed, Nivelle Nights.
DICE describe the map as
We’re glad to announce that a new map called “Prise de Tahure” will be released shortly for testing on the CTE (Community Test Environment). Set in the Autumn after the Nivelle Offensive, Prise de Tahure sees French troops desperately holding on to re-captured heights in the Butte-de-Tahure region. The frontline trench networks cut right through several villages facing obliteration from the constant skirmishing between German stormtroopers and French raiders. This is a war of attrition. Adaptability and tactics are the means to wear your adversary down.
Tahure is located in North Eastern France and during World War 1, it was known as Somme-Py. While not the backing of the narrative in DICE’s title, Tahure was the location of one of the final Allied offensives was held with the United States, France and Siamese Expeditionary Force troops face off against the German Empire and Hungarian forces. The battle started on the 26th September 1918 and continued for 47 days until the Armistice of 11 November 1918.
Nivelle Nights is currently on the CTE (Community Test Environment) and will be releasing first for Premium members in June, Prise de Tahure will follow at a later date sometime in Summer.
Battlefield 1 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
