Battlefield 1’s DLC Easter egg pays homage to the floating house from Up because why not

Flying house confirmed in They Shall Not Pass DLC.

Battlefield 1‘s They Shall Not Pass DLC released for Premium members last week and an Easter egg has already been ferreted out.

Sadly, it’s neither a Balrog, nor a wizard. It’s the house from Up.

Okay, it’s not exactly the same as Carl Fredricksen’s house, with the thousands of balloons whisking it away, but it certainly looks to be heavily inspired by it.

Jackfrags talks us through how to trigger the flying house in the video above, which involves finding and shooting three hidden bottles of wine, then shooting the three weather vanes on the roofs of the houses.

After doing so, the house will rise up from behind the trees at the edge of the map, carried aloft by three big balloons representative of the colours on the French flag.

If you’re not a Premium member, you’ll have to wait until next week to give this a go, when the DLC releases for the rest of us on March 27.
