The Women’s Battalion of Death and Russian Army lead Battlefield 1 players into the next DLC expansion, “In the Name of the Tsar”.
DICE Producer Andrew Gulotta pulled the curtain off Battlefield 1‘s upcoming “In the Name of the Tsar” DLC expansion during the EA Play E3 2017 presentation. Proclaimed to be “the most extensive Battlefield expansion so far”, In the Name of the Tsar takes Battlefield 1 players to World War I Russia with a plethora of new maps, weapons, and the influential Russian Army.
The Russian Army and Women’s Battalion of Death (playable via the “Scout” class) will fight against the German Empire, Carpathians and the Austro-Hungarian forces across six new maps- the snow-blanketed “Lupkow Pass”, “Albion” and “Brusilov Keep”, and the light-vehicle and infantry-focused “Galicia”; the two remaining maps- “Nivelle Nights” and “Prise de Tahure”- will be the first nighttime warfare maps featured in Battlefield 1.
11 weapons will also be added, adding the likes of the Mosin-Nagant M91, stationary coastal gun batteries and other trademarks of the 1912 Russian Army; players also have access to three new vehicles- the Putliov-Garford Heavy Armored Car, Y-Lighter Landing Craft and the Ilya-Muromets Heavy Bomber.
In the Name of the Tsar lets players experience Battlefield 1‘s alternate-history version of the Brusilov Offense, one of the most lethal and influential moments of Russian involvement in WWI. The event plays out through new Operations, the new Supply Drop gameplay mode and a plethora of new Challenges.
In the Name of the Tsar will be available for Battlefield 1 players on PC, Xbox One and PS4 sometime this September as part of the Season Pass, or as a stand-alone purchase.
