Battlefield 1 art that appears to tease the new, playable French army. An image posted to the Battlefield Twitter account today is captioned, "Soyez prêts," which translates to "Be ready." The image shows an intense-looking shootout in bunker. French flags hang from the walls.

The Battlefield 1 website states that DLC for the game will introduce at least two new armies, including France and the Russian empire. As announced previously, Battlefield 1's They Shall Not Pass expansion will add the French army. The expansion, the game's first paid one, arrives in March 2017.
You can get They Shall Not Pass and all of Battlefield 1's other DLC through the game's $50 season pass, which lets you play new maps two weeks before they launch for other people to buy.
Battlefield 1's first DLC map, Giant's Shadow, launched this week as a free download for those who own the season pass or the Early Enlister edition. The free map launches on December 20 for everyone else. In other news, a shotgun-only custom game mode, Eye to Eye, also came out this week.
