Battlefield 1 “They Shall Not Pass” DLC Has A Dark Souls Easter Egg


We are edging closer to the launch of the first DLC pack for Battlefield 1 which will feature, new maps, weapons, and other bits for players to enjoy, like a Dark Souls easter egg.

One of the new maps in the imminent DLC for Battlefield 1 called “They Shall Not Pass” makes a few hints which point towards the Dark Souls action role-playing video game series developed by FromSoftware and published by Namco Bandai Games much to the delight of the fans. The concerned easter egg is a Battlefield 1 version of the Bonfires, the save points or checkpoints of Dark Souls.

Although for your average player the easter egg is a somewhat obvious one it’s location is by no means the same, players will have to venture outside of the map “Rupture” to get a good look at it. As a prize players who manage to reach the Bonfire Battlefield 1 are allowed players to take the Bonfire sword and use it as a melee weapon until they die. Sadly, players won’t respawn at the Bonfire, or with the sword, after they are killed. 

For a better look at the Bonfire and where exactly you can find it have a look at the following video:

The “They Shall Not Pass” DLC features four new maps, a new game mode, a new army, new weapons, and a lot more. In other Battlefield 1 news, DICE recently revealed that they would make some big changes to the grenades, changes that could impact the game quite a bit.

Battlefield 1 is a first-person shooter video game developed by EA DICE and published by Electronic Arts. It is the fifteenth installment in the Battlefield series, and the first main entry in the series since Battlefield 4.

Battlefield 1 is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows
