For the first time in history, DICE is set to introduce female characters to Battlefield 1. This development, obviously, is an exciting thing for players to experience, and it is expected to arrive in the game's next DLC. Well, here is everything about it in a nutshell.
According to PVPLive, the developers of Battlefield 1 announced recently that the forthcoming content In the Name of the Tsar will offer a new kind of experience. That is because female characters, for the first time, will be coming to the game. It is worth noting that, as mentioned, these characters have never made their way to any titles from the franchise.
The aforementioned characters are basically the women battalion of the Russian expansion, which is set in the infamous World War 1 setting. In history, it has been revealed that the country formed at least 15 women battalions, one of which is the so-called Russian Women's Battalion of Death. The latter followed the February Revolution.
At first, women during those times petitioned the program the Russian government tried forming. However, as soon as the spring of 1917 came, a great number of women pressured the officials to move forward with the creation of the so-called Battalion. Ever since, the country has been known for bringing female soldiers to the battlefield.
GameZone, on the other hand, reports that DICE is set to reveal more information about the In the Name of the Tsar content at EA Play 2017. The latter is set to begin come June 1 and will give players a closer look at what the content is all about. Of course, this is also a way for the studio to give fans a preview of the new characters.
Apart from the aforementioned soldiers, the next Battlefield 1 DLC will also bring new features and maps. Add to these are a new set of weapons developed specifically for the Russian expansion. More information about this content will be revealed soon.
