Premium Pass owners can start playing it on September 5th though.
DICE’s second and most “extensive” expansion for Battlefield 1, In The Name of the Tsar, finally has a release date. It will be releasing on September 19th for all consumers while those with Premium Pass can start playing it on September 5th.
The expansion will retail for $15/£12 while the Premium Pass can be purchased for $50/£40. In The Name of the Tsar includes six maps – Lupkow Pass, Albion, Galicia, Brusilov Keep, Tsaritsyn and Volga River – along with a new mode called Supply Drop. The mode takes place on the Eastern Front where players must secure airdrops to gain more weapons. A new Operation, medals, dog tags, service stars and more can also be expected.
If you have Premium Pass, then Lupkow Pass can be played right now. After In The Name of the Tsar has released, there will be an update to Operations in October with another update in November and Turning Tides, the third expansion for the game, arriving in December. The final DLC Apocalypse is out in early 2018.
