The next DLC for Battlefield 1 is called Name of the Tsar. The core addition that the downloadable content pack does to the game is the Russian Army. The DLC also brings four new maps as well as Russian soldiers, weapons, and vehicles. EA has also confirmed that Battlefield 1 multiplayer female soldiers are included in this DLC as well.

EA has confirmed that the Russian scout class is going to be represented by a female soldier hailing from the Women’s Battalion of Death. It has confirmed this while revealing no additional details about the Russian Army or the Scout Class. This is a long overdue addition as male soldiers are predominately featured in the series’ multiplayer modes.

The Russian Provisional Government formed the Women’s Battalion of Death in 1917. Female soldiers in these battalions were sent to the front lines to fight against Germany. It’s unclear how many women were a part of those battalions but estimates suggest that they numbered in the thousands.

The Name of the Tsar DLC for Battlefield 1 is going to be released this summer. A confirmed release date for the DLC has not yet been provided. EA is going to properly show off the DLC pack at its E3 2017 event next month.
