Battlefield 1: In the name of the Tsar looks to be one of the better DLC packs to the shooter. Aside from the usual amount of extra maps and weapons, the game will also add female soldiers to the FPS. This can be considered a first for the series, since there weren’t many playable characters that were female before.
The Women’s Battalion of Death will be added in the upcoming DLC Pack, represented by the game’s Russian scout class. More details for the exciting DLC will be revealed during the EA Play event, from June 10 to June 12. It should be an interesting event for the game and having playable female soldiers is a nice change of pace.
The Battalion of Death
EA teased Battlefield 1: In the name of the Tsar on the game’s official Twitter account, which is worth noting. Fans have also expressed interest on Reddit, discussing what they would like to see in the upcoming DLC Pack. So far, everyone seems keen on the idea of female soldiers being added to the game, since it adds variety.
While there have been female characters in war games before, not many of them are playable to the gamer. It’s a nice move and doesn’t feel to forced, since the Women Battalion of Death were a real group. History buffs should enjoy having them in the game, since EA said this would be an accurate WW1 representation.
EA Play Reveal Date?
Since more details for Battlefield 1: In the name of the Tsar will be revealed in EA Play, the release date will likely be revealed there as well. It is an EA exclusive event after all, so we could see several reveal dates for their DLC plans. Expect more elaborate details for In the name of the Tsar as well, since fans want to see that.
Despite the multiplayer focus of the game, Battlefield 1 has garnered plenty of acclaim from critics and longtime fans. Most fans loved the developers going back to the first World War and is one reason why Call of Duty is going back to World War 2. With more DLC to come, it’s clear that players will be playing Battlefield 1 for a very long time.
Battlefield 1 is available now on the PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Some of the game’s DLC is available now, so players can pick it up for more multiplayer fun. All the DLC can be purchased by getting the season pass.
