    Personally i feel that this game would be incomplete, without some kind of appearance from the battle of somme. This was the biggest battle of the war, and my bets and hopes is on the apocalypse DLC!

    I think the last DLC is for lesser known smaller battles, like the Monastir offensive in Macedonia, or possibly Arras.

    I just want the Battle of Belleau Wood in the last DLC.

    Yeah would be cool.

    biggest wish for me is the Monastir offensive or battle of Jerusalem (not happening)

    I think that apocalypse is most likely the battle of Ypres. (Passchendaele)

    Also the first poison gas attack took place at Ypres in 1915. So gas masks had to be used.

    It was also the place where the British first encountered flame throwers.

    In the Gallipoli campaign I would like to see the modifications their done to their rifles they used in the trenches and the sniper rifle with the clear plate with the T bar on the back of it as it had a better field of vision around it.

    You mean those crazy periscope rifles the ANZAC's made? Apparently there was so many metal flying in the air, leaving cover was suicide thus: they got creative and made guns that shoot off a periscope.

    The last DLC is going to be interesting since it looks like its near the end of the war?

    The Somme has to make an appearance! That last DLC apocalypse has the potential to be the best if its just full of the most mental battles of the war.

    I think they will take place within the destroyed cities like Antwerp, Ypre and Arras

    Just Imagine Fighting in these places. I bet you $1000000 that this will be the Final DLC

    The Germans never set one foot in Ypres. That city got destroyed by artillery fire, not by CQC.

    Besides, Antwerp was never destroyed or even badly damaged. There was a lot of fighting at the many forts surrounding Antwerp at the time. The Belgian army even evacuated Antwerp.

    I'm really looking forward to these, though I had REALLY hoped for an African front (specifically, Tanzania, with Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck) expansion.

    IN THE NAME OF THE TSAR
    So we're getting Operation Albion (German offensive in the Baltic's archipelagos) and the Brusilov Offensive down in Galicia. The latter was mostly waged against the Austro-Hungarians, so I suspect they'll be the defenders. The cavalry lancer will probably be the new "vehicle," and the behemoth either a train variant (although the train could very well be the same train as before, after all, They Shall Not Pass only used its behemoth on two of the maps) or the Tsar tank. Might get a cavalry elite.

    TURNING TIDES
    Destroyers sends some clear messages that we're having large-scale naval battles, bigger than we've seen in any modern Battlefield game. But what other map could go with the Zeebrugge Raid in a British-German Atlantic Operation? The other Operation, based around Gallipoli, could be British vs Ottomans, but I'd imagine it's a "new" Australian army since we are supposed to get more than just France and Russia for DLC nations. No idea what elite class we'd have, but the behemoth is either going to be some lame coastal airship variant (which I think they mentioned), or a submarine.

    APOCALYPSE
    No real idea here, but the big killers that we haven't seen (or disqualified due to location) are:

    Arras: Underground tunnel labyrinths. I know that Argonne Forest was the original Operation Metro of BF1, and then Fort de Vaux was supposed to be the new one, but...
    Serbian Campaign: I'm honestly not interested in seeing the Serbian Campaign, but they might have Serbia be a new faction (against Austro-Hungary). 50% of the male Serbian population died during the war.
    Passchendale: First major use of gas, major Canadian presence. I could see this being the Canadian, gassed-out counterpart to the fiery french Verdun Heights.
    The Somme: Don't know anything about the battle, just that it was big and would almost certainly be added. The Somme is somewhat represented, though, by Saint Quentin's Scar... same area, just different time.
    Belleau Wood: Could be added in. It would probably play like a more open forest alternative to Argonne.

    Elite, vehicle? Don't know. Can't imagine what kind of vehicle would be used, either.

    Battle speculations:

    Give that there will be two operations per dlc (given by vanilla and They Shall not Pass) that means two maps will connect e.g. In the Name of the Tsar will have two battles (maps) relating to the Brusiliv Offensive etc.

    I'm not sure about the Russian dlc anymore as I had pegged Tannerberg and Galicia with two maps set between Russian and Turkey (has there is a lot of battle to choose from but that front is hardly known)

    Turning Tides:
    Obviously we have the Belgian port with U-boat pens but I'm not to sure if Jutland would fit in as that was entirely naval and I'm sure Dice won't be able to go down that path at this point in time; maybe they will though.

    Gallipoli campaign could include ANZAC cove and expand out to either Lone Pine or the Nek if they are gonna be a bit cliche or it may include other areas of the campaign such as Cape Helles or the French landings (can't for the life of me remember the name ATM arghh) could also include the Dardnelles from a naval perspective.

    Apocalypse:
    Not sure yet as no reference has been given has its currently way too vauge to guess accurately but I'll have a shot regardless;
    Passcendale
    Fromelles
    Pozières
    Belleau Woods

    Bit biased but they fit the description

    We know for a fact that Russia is getting Operation Albion, a German offensive into Estonia. So no Russian-Ottoman battles, unfortunately. (I think the Germans are kind of overexposed, an unfortunate symptom of them having done most of the major fighting on their side...)

    I think that in turning tides there will be a new behemoth destroyer or u boat + new plane aka Flying boat

    I've read "campaign" a few times in regards to Turning Tides--does this mean new single player??

    heres my thoughts.

    I realy want them to get gallipoli right, i dont want them to just include british player models and not incorporate the australians in there. Ill be very dissapointed if they dont include the aussies as i am one myself.

    Also, i would like to see The Battle of the Somme and The Battle of Passchendaele in apocalypse. I believe that these battles fit into the category of "descending into hell". also belleau wood in there.
