The next expansion for Battlefield 1, In the Name of the Tsar, is releasing in September with plenty of new content. As with every new Battlefield DLC, In the Name of the Tsar will bring new vehicles, new weapons, and six new multiplayer maps. Expanding into the Eastern front of World War I, Battlefield 1 will showcase the Hussar cavalry and female soldiers for the first time through the Women's Battalion of Death.

In addition to the new content, In the Name of the Tsar will feature a new game mode called Supply Drop and new ways to customize your playstyle. More information about Supply Drop will be available during Gamescom 2017.

looks like that September map pak - In the Name of the Tsar - will have one of its maps released in August.


In the Name of the Tsar arrives in September, but you’ll get an early taste in August with the release of the snow-covered map Lupkow Pass. Brusilov Keep.

I just tried it out in BF1 CTE - 4 flags - snow, which slows your sprint down a tad - and the light changes from day to dusk .. maybe to darker, I dunno. Didn't stay that long. Has a central train with bridge. Map call up name is mp_bridge, which doesn't do anyone any thing useful anymore without full admin rights like in previous BF games.

One of the maps, Lupkow Pass, is already out for people who own the Premium Pass. The others are: Albion, Galicia, Brusilov Keep, Tsaritsyn (which you can see the first gameplay of in the video above), and Volga River. Developer DICE's descriptions, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog, can be found at the bottom of this article.

Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar Maps

Lupkow Pass: The vertical fights are as bitter as the cold as you fight amid snow-covered ravines and treacherous mountains. The first map of Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar, Lupkow Pass pits the Austro-Hungarian forces against the dug-in troops of the Russian Imperial Army. With narrow passes and gorges constantly limiting your sightlines, adapting your tactics is key. You’ll want to gain altitude and get a vantage point on the enemy to help secure the win – but an Armored Train may just change the outcome of the battle.

Albion: Partake in the skirmishes of the Albion assault in this massive invasion of the Baltic peninsula, as the German Empire enacts a brutal coastal bombardment against the heavy gun batteries of the Russian forces. While expert vehicle and artillery use is crucial, sharp-eyed infantry that are able to stay ahead of the mayhem can make a serious impact with each capture point.

Galicia: Set during the epic Brusilov Offensive, you'll find the Russian Empire committed to pushing back the Austro-Hungarian forces from within the Russian countryside. It's an open map focused on infantry, cavalry, and light vehicles. With plenty of open space to traverse, it's a great opportunity to make use of the cavalry charge as both lightning-fast transport and a serious threat to enemies on foot.

Brusilov Keep: The Russians have pushed the Austro-Hungarians back into a secluded mountain town along a critical trade route of the Eastern Front, but the opposition is making a strong stand on this infantry-focused map. Set in the shadow of the Carpathian Mountains, there's a big emphasis on close-range soldier combat here. Your best bet? Top-notch teamwork with your squad.

Tsaritsyn: The Bolsheviks and the Imperials enter the fray among barricaded streets as the old and new regimes fight for the soul of Russia. This up-close and personal infantry fight is as ruthless as they come. Use the house-to-house fighting to your advantage by setting up ambushes for overextending enemies.

Volga River: A ruined rural battleground sets the stage for a tank fight between the Bolsheviks in red and the Imperial Army in white. Makeshift shelters provide cover from the freezing cold and the constant exchange of heavy firepower. As you trade salvos with enemy tanks, remember to keep yourself from being outnumbered. A strategic retreat can give you time to regroup and prevent losing vehicle resources.
