The next expansion for Battlefield 1, In The Name of The Tsar, now has a release window. Previously pegged for “Summer”, the EA Play E3 event has just announced release for the month of September.
A lot of the information mentioned was repeated from previous announcements, but there were a few new details. In The Name of The Tsar will include six new Battlefield 1 maps, new vehicles weapons (of course), Hussar Cavalry, and the already revealed Women’s Battalion of Death (which remains an amazing name).
After showing the teaser trailer (below), EA had a separate little announcement of a “new competitive Battlefield experience”. A smaller, tighter affair based on team-play, with “all out competition accessible to players and viewers”. Smells like an attempted eSports thing to me, and more details about whatever that is are coming at GamesCom, apparently.
