The next expansion for Battlefield 1 will add female soldiers to the series for the first time.
Battlefield 1: In The Name Of The Tsar takes place on the Eastern front of World War I with fighting taking place between the German/Austro-Hungarian Empires and the Russian Empire.
Historically, Russia had numerous battalions of female soldiers during World War I. Whilst the government was hesitant to introduce these battalions at first, they presented a massive propaganda opportunity for the empire.
Here’s hoping we also see female soldiers added into all of the existing factions in Battlefield 1 with this DLC as well.
Battlefield 1: In The Name Of The Tsar will be officially unveiled at EA Play during E3 2017 on 10th June.
