Soldiers on PC, PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S can expect various new weapons as well as the second of three new Offensive maps based on the Twelfth Battle of Isonzo.

Just like the first part of the Caporetto expansion, the Piave update will be free for all Isonzo players. As revealed in the roadmap, this will be the second update of many to be released on Steam, PlayStation, Xbox and the Epic Games Store.
Sink or Swim? The River awaits…
With this next free update, players must face the river Piave in the second of three new Offensive maps coming to Isonzo in the Caporetto expansion. Battling their Italian enemies on the dangerous hillsides by the river banks, the German soldiers must survive the treacherous nooks and crannies of Caporetto as they attempt to overcome the challenge of the Piave with all their might.
History books tell us of how, after the Italian defeat at Caporetto (24 October 1917), they retreated to the Tagliamento line. At the same time, Boselli resigned as the prime minister of Italy and a new cabinet was formed. They met with the British and French prime ministers and decided to replace Luigi Cadorna with Armando Diaz as the new Italian chief of staff. The king supported his new chief in a plan to stand firm on the Piave river, to prevent Venice from falling into enemy hands.
Now it is time for players to pave the way to victory by either attempting to build a bridge across the Piave or by preventing their enemies from doing just that. Either way, both sides will have a fierce battle waiting for them! The update will also be adding two new weapons to even the odds: the Mauser M1914 and the Beretta Modello 1917.
