With full (extremely detailed) patch notes inside.
DICE has made Update 1.13 for its World War 1 era multiplayer shooter, Battlefield 1, available to download. The new update introduces support for the In The Name of the Tsar DLC, which, among other things, adds Russians to the game, and it also adds HDR10 support, Specializations and a ton of new content.
Said new content includes a lot of new maps and new weapons. There are, naturally, also fixes for bugs, glitches, and issues included in this patch as well. Improvements to netcodes are also included with the update. All put together, this update comes in at 10GB on PS4 and Xbox One, and almost 8.5GB on PC.
