Even many months after its initial release, Battlefield 1 continues to deliver the goods. Today sees the second expansion pack for the game released – and no matter whether you’re a Premium Pass holder, or just want to purchase it outright, In the Name of the Tsar should be well worth checking out.
Available right now on Xbox One, In the Name of the Tsar sees you joining forces with the Russian Army, as you get to witness first hand the power struggle of the civil war. Getting involved in skirmishes of the Albion assault, pilot massive bombers over snow covered ravines, driving armoured cars in Galicia and dodging machinegun fire through the streets of Tsaritsyn will all soon become pretty much par for the course.
In the Name of the Tsar brings six new multiplayer maps, the Supply Drop game mode, no less than 11 new unlockable weapons and the chance to join the cavalry as you get to ride with the legendary Hussars.
If you’ve previously purchase the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass, then you’ll already find that In the Name of the Tsar is yours to enjoy. But should you not have gone big with the BF1 experience, but still want to get involved in this latest content, then you should be heading to the Xbox Games Store and grabbing the content for £14.99 (£13.49 for those with EA Access).
Just in case you aren’t completely down with the whole Battlefield 1 vibe, you can also check out our full review of the game right here.
