Battlefield 1, famous shooter from last year is all set to get its next DLC entitled “In the Name of the Tsar” that is going to bring a couple of big changes and additions in the game such as Russian Army.
In addition to the Russian Army, it will be adding Russian vehicles, weapons and the soldiers alongside four new maps. Dan Mitre, community manager of Battlefield tweeted regarding the addition of female soldier who will be part of Russia’s Women Battalion of Death.

This is one of the most significant development in the series lately and also a good idea to display the reality of the first great war. For those who are unaware, Women’s Battalion of Death was actually formed in 1917 by the Russian Government to boost the morale of the army. The female soldiers were less in numbers and mostly fought against the German Army during Russia’s final offensive of the WWI.
Interestingly, DICE will be showcasing the next DLC “In the Name of the Tsar” during the EA Play event which will take place on June 10th, a couple of days before the E3 expo. While the game will be getting new content and maps later this summer.
Battlefield 1 is now available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates!
