This winter update is not directly related to the game’s first DLC titled ‘They Shall not Pass’ which you can find all of the information for here. They Shall Not Pass is set to release some time in March.
The update is set to release next week and intends to be a rather large update for the popular game. EA and DICE have not released any details of what’s to come in this update however, they recently launched public test servers within Battlefield 1 and had a lot of feedback through the process. This update could be what will fix the issues addressed by the public test server players. Included in these fixes to the issues were the return of ribbons, an increase to the maximum rank value to 50, and the ability to vote for the next map at the end of the game.
Not many details have been revealed yet but the update is set to release in a week's time and is expected to be as large as the Fall update.
