Concept art



  • They Shall Not Pass is the first Battlefield expansion with post release content introduced to it in the form of maps exclusive to owners of the expansion.
  • The DLC is named after "They shall not pass" (French: Ils ne passeront pas!), a slogan famously used by French General Robert Nivelle during the Battle of Verdun, and was used on French propaganda posters.
  • The cover image, showing a French soldier holding a Chauchat sideways with both of his hands, appears to be inspired by the On ne passe pas! propaganda poster created by Maurice Neumont. The same poster also inspires a similar shot in the official trailer.
