Battlefield 1: In The Name of the Tsar is the second official expansion to Battlefield 1 - a best-selling FPS game developed by DICE. Similarly to the base game, the add-on is available (among other platforms) on PC, XONE and PS4. As the title suggests, the expansion described herein allows players to side with the Russian army and experience the largest front of the WWI.
Battlefield 1: In The Name of the Tsar for PC, XONE and PS4 introduces six new maps, thus players can now participate in i.a. Brusilov Offensive in Galicia, Operation Albion taking place across the ice-bound archipelago, and battles in the Lupkow Pass coves.
Moreover, the DLC offers eleven new types of weapons (e.g. the Mosin-Nagant M91 and Russian Standard 1912 grenades) and new vehicles - including Garford-Putilow armored vehicle, Y-Lighter assault ship, and the new behemoth, Ilja Muromiec heavy bomber powered by four engines. The expansion described herein delivers also the cavalry in the form of the legendary Hussars.
The PC, XONE and PS4 release of Battlefield 1: In The Name of the Tsar also introduces several new game modes, e.g. the Supply Drop, in which players have to fight for the army supplies dropped by the planes flying over the battlefield. Moreover, the aforementioned Brusilov Offensive has been implemented as one of the new Operations. Of course, the new content delivered by the expansion described herein includes also medals, dog tags, and service stars.
As In The Name of the Tsar is not a standalone expansion, it requires the Battlefield 1 base game in order to work.
