If you have the premium pass for Battlefield 1, chances are you are already playing the new DLC that just came out. If you do not have the premium pass then you will have to wait another week to play it. Either way; you should be aware that they have added some Update Notes as well as Content Notes for the game. Here they are:
Galicia – An entrenched fight across a war-torn river valley.
SUPPLY DROP GAME MODE
Resupplying troops was essential to victory in WW1, and the use of airplanes to deliver much-needed supplies was a completely new tactic. In the new Supply Drop mode, airdrops will appear periodically, and your team must defend the drop location to recover those supplies. The team that recovers the most supplies at the end of the match wins.
Brusilov Offensive – The Russian army deploys new tactics on the Eastern Front in 1916.
Red Tide – The Russian Red Army and White Guard clash in civil war during 1919.
The Russian Empire’s White Guard
305/52 O Coastal Gun
Hussar Cavalry Unit
Battlefield 1 “In the Name of the Tsar” comes with a plethora of new weapons:
FA Automatic Rifle
General Liu Rifle
Parabellum MG 14/17
Perino Model 1908
Mosin Nagant M91
Vetterli Vitali M1870/87
Sidearm (all kits)
Melee (all kits)
This is a required update for all Battlefield 1 players to play online. The following fixes will apply to all Battlefield 1 players.
SERVICE ASSIGNMENTS AND SPECIALIZATIONS
Prepare for battle like never before with the Specialization system. New customization options will allow you to enhance your effectiveness on the battlefield and tweak your soldier to explore new ways to play. All players will start with a set of basic Specializations and many more can be unlocked by completing Service Assignments.
Service Assignments are a new set of challenges that will test your mettle as a soldier. Show that you’ve got what it takes with the “Getting Started” assignments before moving on to the more difficult “Staying Focused” challenges. Will you pick one kit and master it, or complete them all and become a jack of all trades?
Added support for HDR10. With HDR (High Dynamic Range), the visuals of Battlefield 1 will be even more breathtaking for owners of the required tech (a screen with HDR support together with a console/PC with HDR capabilities.) HDR expands the contrast ratio and color palette to offer more realistic, immersive, and natural visuals.
Fixed issue where the Origin Access dog tag was not being unlocked when subscribed to Origin Access.
Added Service Assignments and Specializations.
Fixed issue where the wrong rank icon was displayed on the Kill Card for Rank 110.

Fixed an issue in the End of Round screen where all Class Rank icons were gold instead of the corresponding Gold, Silver, or Bronze Rank value.
Bombers should no longer take multiple damage pings from a single bullet.
Changes to stationary weapon repair and respawn – if not repaired for two minutes, the QF1 AA, FK96 Field Gun, and 305/52 O Coastal Gun will be restored to full health. Players can still use a repair tool to get them back into action faster.
Fixed issue where dismounting a horse while it was jumping would cause it to get stuck in the jump animation.

I have not had a ton of time to play Battlefield 1 In The Name Os The Tsar – between playing double XP on IW and playing Destiny 2, but from what I have played I can assure you that it is.. amazing! In fact, I sort of shied away from Battlefield 1 over the past few months because the game made me realize that I don’t really love it as much as I thought I would, but with every new DLC, I make time to play it to see if it can bring my passion back. This one definitely does something for me. So if you stopped playing as well, I urge you to give this one a chance as a premium pass owner and see if this will change your mind.
