The expansion is aimed to be the biggest one released in the Battlefield series since Battlefield 3.
If you are playing the last entries to the Battlefield series, you know the formula of its expansions and Premium Passes. Both Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 offered five DLCs with four maps each. Battlefield Hardline had only four expansions, but also with four maps each. The same was supposedly planned for Battlefield 1, but that’s no longer the case.
The game will receive In the Name of the Tsar DLC in September and it will offer not four but six maps total. You can read the official descriptions of the set below, with further two to be revealed in future:
- Lupkow Pass: Fight in the snow-covered ravines of the treacherous Lupkow Pass. Against this dramatic backdrop, the vertical fights are as bitter as the cold.
- Albion: Partake in the skirmishes of the Albion assault in a freezing archipelago. In this massive invasion of the Baltic peninsula, the German Empire attacks with infantry, dreadnoughts, and aircraft against the heavy coastal gun batteries of the Russian forces.
- Galicia: In the midst of the epic Brusilov Offensive, the Russian Empire is fighting to push back the Austro-Hungarian forces in the Russian countryside. Take on an open map focused on infantry, cavalry, and light vehicles.
- Brusilov Keep: The Russians have pushed their enemy into a small mountain town, but the Austro-Hungarians are making a strong stand. Experience close-quarter fights by the Carpathians on an infantry-focused map.
In the Name of the Tsar expansion will offer a new mode called Supply Drop where you “join a fast-paced fight for supplies on the Eastern Front as planes airdrop everything needed to outgun and outscore your opponents.” New Operation is also on the way, and you will be able to grab additional weapons and equipment.
