13 Things to Know About Battlefield 1 In The Name of The Tsar

Our guide to the Battlefield 1 In The Name of the Tsar DLC release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC takes a look at the DLC’s mysterious release date, some key dates to circle on the calendar, and a peek at its content including the new Scout class.

After They Shall Not Pass, DICE plans to release three more Battlefield 1 DLC expansion packs including a Russian DLC called In the Name of the Tsar.

DICE recently teased In the Name of the Tsar but many of the DLC’s important details remain in the shadows as we push toward its release date.

While we wait for DICE to outline the next Battlefield 1 DLC in full, we want to go over everything we currently know about the next Battlefield 1 DLC.

This guide includes a dive into the In the Name of the Tsar’s weapons, its maps and environments, a potential vehicle, and the presence of female Russian soldiers.

The roundup also includes a few things we think you can expect from DICE and the In The Name of the Tsar DLC release. These expectations aren’t wild predictions. Instead, they’re based on the release protocol DICE used with its first DLC expansion, They Shall Not Pass.

We’ll continue to update this roundup with the latest information so keep an eye out for updates as we push closer to EA Play 2017 and the official In the Name of the Tsar release date for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

In the Name of the Tsar Release Date

In the Name of the Tsar Release Date

Given its placement in Battlefield 1 marketing materials we had a feeling In the Name of the Tsar would follow They Shall Not Pass. That's been confirmed.

In an interview with Kotaku, Valerian Noghin, lead designer of They Shall Not Pass, confirms In the Name of the Tsar will follow They Shall Not Pass.

After weeks of silence we also have an In the Name of the Tsar release window though it's not sitting well with Battlefield 1 players

DICE's latest DLC announcement confirms an In the Name of the Tsar release date for sometime in late summer.

The developers says this means “late summer” in Stockholm and Los Angeles where the company's development teams are based.

The summer of 2017 ends on September 22nd which means we could be looking at a release in August or, September, if we're extremely unlucky. 

Remember, those of you with the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass will get In the Name of the Tsar two weeks before everyone else.

    I’m assuming a couple of the weapons will be something along the lines of the Fedorov Avtomat 1915 “AR”, for Medics, and the Mosin 1895 Revolver Sidearm. We’ve already received the Chauchat LMG, and the 1895 Lever Action. My last major thought will be a Mosin Nagant, somewhere from during or before the war.

      Who cares about the weapons. Look under support guns. Only two do different damages. Why even have them.

    The DLC’s are so late and spread out because Battlefield aren’t releasing a game this year.
