Long ago, DICE confirmed plans to bring the Russian Army to Battlefield 1. And now we know In the Name of the Tsar will be the one that brings it to Xbox One, PS4 and PC owners.
As its name suggests, In the Name of the Tsar will focus on World War I's massive Eastern Front and the Russian Army.
The Eastern Front pitted the Russians and its allies against the Ottoman Empire and the German Empire so we expect the Germans and Ottomans to be heavily involved in this DLC.
The developer notes that gamers will "ride in Galicia with the legendary Hussars" during the war's brutal Brusilov offensive. Hussars were mounted calvary units known for their extremely colorful attire.
Thanks to the developer's concept images, we have a pretty good idea about what to expect from the DLC's army and setting.
