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.

It looks like female soldiers will play a role in In the Name of the Tsar. 

The Art of Battlefield 1 book pointed to the presence of female soldiers in the upcoming DLC and DICE's official In the Name of the Tsar artwork confirms this.  

The art showcases female Russian soldiers who are a part of the Russian Woman's Battalion of Death that formed in the Spring of 1917.

DICE notes they will be represented by the Russian Scout class. 

Also of note is this video from last year which showcases some of the Russian voices that could make it into the next piece of Battlefield 1 DLC.

    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.
