Battlefield 1 Multiplayer Adds Female Soldiers in Russian DLC

In The Name Of The Tsar is, as you may have expected, an expansion that adds the Russian army, with new maps and new weapons included.

WWI saw Russia form 15 women's battalions, including the 1st Russian Women's Battalion of Death, which will be the battalion featured in Battlefield 1 DLC In the Name of the Tsar.

It marks a change in position for DICE, which PCGamesN previously reported had chosen to exclude female avatars the game's multiplayer mode. The Women's Battalions will be playable as the Russian Scout class in the game.

The all-female squad was formed in real life in 1917, and was one of several such battalions from Russian Federation to be involved in the war.

The battalions were created following many petitions from women who campaigned to the government to join join regular military units, before they began protesting for women's battalions.

We'll be at E3 2017, and will hopefully get a chance to check out the new Battlefield 1 expansion ahead of release.

Interestingly, the fact that the game's multiplayer features respawns and endless airship explosions has not been criticised for being historically inaccurate.

The second wave of premium content will introduce the Russian army, which formed special women's battalions during the first World War.

Developer DICE shared some early concept images in its official Battlefield 1 art book (called The Art of Battlefield 1), which gives us some idea of what the female soldiers could look like.

"Playing They Shall Not Pass made me immediately want to get back into Battlefield 1".
