Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar DLC
Battlefield 1 developer DICE has big plans for the WWI shooter, promising monthly updates, new features and the next big DLC expansion.
The next DLC pack is called Battlefield 1: In The Name Of The Tsar, which takes place on the Eastern Front.
"Battlefield 1 In The Name Of The Tsar will bring you to the Eastern Front, where you will fight alongside the Russian army and witness the brutality of combat and the bitter cold of the Russian winters," reads a blog post.
"Prepare yourself for all new tactics employed by the Russian army. Though the frost is cold, the steel is colder."
Each new expansion contains maps, weapons, vehicles and game modes. Premium members can play first.
But you don't need a Premium pass to benefit from the other new features releasing as part of the spring update.
This includes Platoons, which lets players join forces with friends.
"Finally, you’ll be able to organize and join forces with your friends, execute swift victories, and achieve goals as one unit," DICE continues. "Stay tuned for more info on Platoons and the Spring Update release."

According to DICE, this includes streamlining the flow into matches and improving gameplay grievances. New game balances are also inbound.
And it looks like Activision is following Battlefield 1's lead, as Call of Duty 2017 goes back to World at War II.
Call of Duty: WWII is rumoured to be the next game in the popular shooter franchise.
Call of Duty 2017 cover art and promotional material was leaked on the weekend, while a follow up report claimed that Call of Duty: WWII would be the full name of the new PS4, Xbox One and PC shooter.
