During E3 (actually, just before E3, during EA Play) we got a quick look
at upcoming Battlefield 1 expansion, In the Name of the Tsar, along with some news relating to new night maps and gameplay tweaks.
After the announcements (which we reported on here) we caught up with producer Andrew Gulotta, who gave us some extra intel about the studio's plans for the WW1-themed shooter.
"We're moving from the Western Front over to the Eastern Front," Gulotta said of the upcoming DLC. "This is the biggest front of World War 1, and we're introducing the Russian army, we're introducing a lot of weapons and some vehicles, more operations, a new game mode. This is the most extensive pack we've ever dropped."
Gulotta later corrected himself when calling In the Name of the Tsar the "biggest" DLC drop that they've made so far, and therefore we're not exactly sure what "extensive" means in the context of the expansion, but it certainly sounds ambitious with new environments appearing across six new maps, as well as new weapons and units (including the infamous Battalion of Death).
The game's producer also touched on the new night maps coming this summer ahead of the aforementioned expansion, as well as the revisions coming to the progression system. Finally, Gulotta confirmed that Turning Tides, the third expansion for the game, is landing in December, followed by the fourth, Apocalypse, in early 2018.
