Battlefield 1 the Name of the Tsar Finally Has a Release Date

Enjoy the next Battlefield 1 expansion this September.

Electronic Arts and DICE have finally revealed when players can get their hands on Battlefield 1: The Name of the Tsar. For any players with the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass, the expansion goes live on September 5. For everyone else, you'll have to wait until September 19 for all the new content.

The Name of the Tsar takes players to the Eastern Front of World War 1, placing them in the shoes of the Russian Army. The narrative focus will be the the Women's Battalion of Death. See another perspective on the Great War as you fight in the cold of winter.

The expansion includes six new maps: Tsaritsyn, Volga River, Albion, Galicia, Brusilov Keep, and Lupkow Pass. Players will also get access to 11 new weapons, including the Russian Mosin-Nagant M91, multiple new vehicles, the new stationary coastal gun battery, and a new game mode called Supply Drop. In Supply Drop, teams have to fight over airdropped supplies to gain the upper hand. The Name of the Tsar also comes alongside an update offering high-dynamic range (HDR10) support.

The next downloadable content releases include Rising Tides and Apocalypse, coming in December and early 2018 respectively. Players new to Battlefield 1 can get all the content in the newly-announced Battlefield 1: Revolution, which offers the base game and all of the Premium Pass content for $59.99.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
