Battlefield 1 Turning Tides Expansion Review

This past week the first two maps of the Battlefield 1 expansion “Turing Tides” has now released. Also a new operation, new weapons, and new assignments have been added as well. But let’s get into the meat of this latest expansion in the latest Battlefield title.

“Turning Tides” as of right now only has its first two maps out, as the other two are coming in early January when it releases outside of the premium pass. But the first map we have is “Achi Baba” which is a trench warfare heavy map. The gameplay here is probably what I would consider the most accurate to the World War I setting. As you find yourself constantly running through trenches, grenades flying around and landing in front of you. It’s very infantry focused, and one of the best maps in the game in my opinion. The other map “Cape Helles” is more fitting with the theme of the DLC. Featuring plenty of sea gameplay, with also a big mix of air and infantry based defense gameplay. This map I find a bit weaker, as the attackers really only utilize the sea gameplay, while defense is more on infantry and sky.

There are plenty of new weapons that honestly don’t add to much to the sandbox of Battlefield 1, especially compared to “In the Name of the Tsar.” I feel like the real potential of this expansion lies with the next two maps that are coming, so when they release I will update this review with those. But the infiltrator hero class has been added in this update. Which serves as a more stealth based hero character, which is very fitting for Battlefield 1 and has the potential to be one of my favorite new classes.

BioWare Hands Out Reward for Shadow Realms Alpha Test Volunteers

Shadow Realms BioWare

As the development studio BioWare Austin was closed down they mentioned in an official announcement that their involvement with Shadow Realms was cancelled. Many assume that this means the entire game is cancelled, and without much hope on the horizon the 4 versus 1 game first revealed back in August of 2014 is believed to be lost forever as vaporware. Today some users (including a few RGN Staff) have received access to an in-game Dragon Age: Inquisition item as a “thank you” from BioWare for signing up at the Shadow Realms Alpha Website. If you’ve received the same invite, here’s how to use it. If you haven’t, here’s a screenshot:
