12 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 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC covers the DLC’s release date, its content, its recent release into the Battlefield 1 CTE, and a whole lot more.

DICE is planning to release three more Battlefield 1 DLC expansion packs including Turning Tides, Apocalypse, and a Russian DLC called In the Name of the Tsar. The developer says the In the Name of the Tsar DLC is the most extensive Battlefield expansion ever.

DICE’s teased In the Name of the Tsar but many of the important details are still shrouded in mystery as we push toward its release date this summer.

While we wait for DICE to outline the next piece of Battlefield 1 DLC in full, we want to go over everything we currently know about In the Name of the Tsar’s content and release.

This guide includes a dive into the DLC’s weapons, maps and environments, new vehicles, army, and a look at the changes to the Scout class.

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. They’re based on the release protocol DICE used for the game’s 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 the official release date for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

In the Name of the Tsar Release Date

In the Name of the Tsar Release Date

We also have an official In the Name of the Tsar release window though it's not sitting well with Battlefield 1 players

DICE initially offered a late summer window and the developer now says the In the Name of the Tsar release date will land in September.

In the Northern Hemisphere, summer 2017 started on June 20th. It ends on September 22nd. So, at this point, we expect the full In the Name of the Tsar DLC to emerge for Premium Pass holders sometime between September 1st and September 22nd. 

The developer hasn't confirmed a specific date and probably won't until we get much closer to the actual release for Premium Pass holders. 

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.
