France will be joining the fray, and now we know that the Russians will be joining Battlefield 1 in an upcoming DLC for the game.
Both will be joining as post-launch factions in the game with the “Premium Pass.” Things included in that are:
- Two-week early access to each expansion pack.
- 16 new multiplayer maps.
- New Operations and game modes for more ways to play.
- Play as new armies like France and the Russian Empire in an upcoming expansion pack.
- New elite classes.
- 20 new weapons to use.
- New vehicles to operate.
If you don’t know much about WWI history, WWI was part of the reason why the Russian Empire fell, and gave rise to the Russian Revolution (the Bolsheviks Revolution) and Russia’s form of “Communism.”
There is currently no announced release date for this expansion.
