Battlefield 1 is gearing up to release its next major DLC expansion, and will allow everyone to try it out first, regardless of Battlefield 1 Premium Pass ownership. This information comes from two different blog posts on the official Battlefield site.

Starting tomorrow, Jan. 16, all players will have trial access to Achi Baba and Cape Helles, two maps included in the Battlefield 1 Turning Tides expansion. Along with those two maps, players will also have access to select maps, modes, weapons and more from the two previously released expansions They Shall Not Pass and In The Name Of The Tsar. This trial will run until Jan. 22.

While players that don’t own a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass can use the new weapons and vehicles included in the expansions during the trial, they will not be able to spawn with them.

Battlefield 1 developer DICE didn’t say when the rest of the Turning Tides expansion content would be made available for Premium Pass subscribers. As of now, subscribers have access to the Achi Baba and Cape Helles maps, the Gallipoli operation, the L-Class Destroyer, the Infiltrator elite class and a handful of new guns and melee weapons. The second half of the Turning Tides expansion will include two new maps, a new faction and a new vehicle.

DICE has also teased new information for the next expansion, Apocalypse, is scheduled for an “imminent” release. The expansion will likely add new maps, weapons, vehicles and more, but we don’t know what exactly is included as of right now. As always, the expansion will be available for Premium Pass holders once available.

As an added bonus for those without Premium Pass subscriptions, DICE is making the Prise de Tahure map from They Shall Not Pass a permanent free addition starting on Jan. 16. This means you’ll be able to play the map as much as you want, even after the trial period for the other content has ended.

So what do you think? Are you going to try out the new maps and modes from the Battlefield 1 expansions during the Jan. 16-22 trial? Do you think you’ll pick up a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass for Apocalypse? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
