The newest DLC to arrive in Battlefield 1 has already been announced, and it is called In the Name of the Tsar. This content will introduce the Russian legion, but the most interesting part is the female characters. It is worth noting that this will be the first since the franchise came into existence.
Apparently, developer DICE will be making some changes with the specializations in Battlefield 1, as reported by PVP Live. Basically, specializations in the forthcoming DLC will not add any damage. It will not even reduce the damage taken by players. This was in fact announced by the studio back at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
At E3, DICE's very own development director Andrew Gulotta said that specializations will arrive in the game via the aforementioned content. These are meant to tailor the classes according to the preferences of players. For instance, these can be adjusted in a way that the character's playstyle will become fit to the player's.
However, the studio, later on, revealed that specializations in Battlefield 1 DLC In the Name of the Tsar will not provide impact time-to-kill. It will not even provide a significant increase on the players' health, particularly on taking lesser damages. This was unveiled by the video game company on the official Reddit page of the game. Basically, all of the weapon balance they introduce is "finely tuned" on the hits to kill. If this is modified even on the slightest scale, the balance they promote will only be compromised.
Many players did not like the changes DICE will be introducing in the Battlefield 1 specializations. They believe that these should have provided a mixed experience, with an opportunity to gauge things accordingly. While the changes will not really be that huge, the influence they can provide is significant enough to impact the overall gameplay experience.
According to PC Gamer, In the Name of the Tsar is set to be released to Battlefield 1 sometime in September. It is set to introduce the titular Women's of Death battalion.
