The first Battlefield 1 DLC delivers some amazing new content but They Shall Not Pass is also causing problems for many Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC users.
Earlier this month, DICE finally released the Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass DLC for Premium Pass holders. The DLC, which requires an 8GB update to play, will become available as a standalone piece of content on March 28th.
They Shall Not Pass brings the French army, four new maps, two new Operations, new weapons, a new elite class, and a new behemoth. Its also brought some frustrating issues to Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners.
As we push away from the DLC’s release date we’re starting to hear about some of the They Shall Not Pass problems plaguing Xbox One, PS4 and PC. These issues range from minor bugs to debilitating issues like crashes and lockups.
Today we want to go over the most important things to know about Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass problems. Our roundup takes a quick look at the early issues with the DLC, potential fixes and some other key details.
Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass Problems
First, let’s start with the problems themselves.
They Shall Not Pass went through the Battlefield 1 CTE and extensive testing but bugs have managed to make it into the final version of the DLC.
We’re hearing about issues launching the DLC, problems connecting to games, random crashes and black screens, texture issues, FPS drops, issues downloading the March update (which, again, is mandatory if you want to play the DLC), an issue wherein the new Codexes fail to unlock, DLC weapons not tracking stats properly, and more. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
We expect complaints to pickup in the weeks ahead, especially after DICE releases the new content for those that don’t hold the Premium Pass.
If you hate dealing with bugs and/or you don’t own the Premium Pass yet, it might be worth waiting for the first They Shall Not Pass update to fix some some of the bugs and game balance issues.

DICE is cooking up another Battlefield 1 update though we don’t have any kind of ETA on its release. It could be weeks before we see it.
We’d expect the next update to bring fixes and tweaks to the DLC and it’s possible that we’ll see some of these fixes emerge in the Battlefield 1 CTE before the next update’s release.
The Battlefield 1 CTE should be out for the Xbox One and PS4 in March though you will likely need the Premium Pass to gain access.
