EA’s next DLC for Battlefield 1, dubbed ‘In the Name of the Tsar’ will be adding the Russian army into the mix. What’s cool about this addition is that EA the scout call will be represented by females, drawing inspiration from the Women’s Battalion of Death.
Taking to twitter, the publisher announced this interesting addition to the DLC, bringing a little bit of equality to the gameplay.

Of course, this isn’ the first time EA have brought underrepresented minorities into the light – the Harlem hell fighters, have been featured on the Box art of Battlefield 1, along with a campaign level centred around them. One campaign titled “Nothing Is Written” also allows players to take on the role of a female Bedouin rebel.
‘In the Name of the Tsar’ is slated to release late summer of this year, before the release of this DLC fans can expect a couple new additions to the title, one being a new map.
“We’re glad to announce that a new map called “Prise de Tahure” will be released shortly for testing on the CTE (Community Test Environment). Set in the autumn after the Nivelle Offensive, Prise de Tahure sees French troops desperately holding on to re-captured heights in the Butte-de-Tahure region. The frontline trench networks cut right through several villages facing obliteration from the constant skirmishing between German stormtroopers and French raiders. This is a war of attrition. Adaptability and tactics are the means to wear your adversary down.”
