August 8 - 12, 1918
East of Amiens, Picardy, France
Amiens is a map that appears in Battlefield 1. The map is set during the Battle of Amiens in 1918, which began the Allies' Hundred Days Offensive which would eventually lead to the end of World War I. The map features the United Kingdom and German Empire factions opposing one another.
Amiens is an uncommonly dense and expansive urban map. Buildings fairly resemble those seen in Seine Crossing from Battlefield 3, while the map layout echoes Bridge at Remagen from Battlefield 2142. The level of existing destruction is similar to the Battlefield 3: Aftermath expansion. Although aircraft are not available to either team, various planes will pass overhead throughout the battle, while barrage balloons can help with map orientation.
Notre-Dame d'Amiens cathedral and the Parc Saint-Pierre may occasionally be seen in the distance.

British Empire DeploymentEdit
German Empire DeploymentEdit
Amiens is the second and last map of the Kaiserschlacht in Operations The German Empire attacks the defending British Empire from the southeast.
Battle commences in a heavily demolished part of town, following an artillery bombardment.
British forces retreat west into partially standing structures near the railway.
German forces advance across the railway into more open sections of the city. They have three objectives to capture in this sector.
The penultimate objectives of the operation are the Train Yard and adjacent Place Longueville, which will allow the Germans to supply further attacks into French territory.
