EA's press conference (opens in new tab) today kicked off with Madden, and then quickly transitioned into some details on Battlefield 1's next piece of DLC, In The Name of the Tsar. It'll include six new maps, the Russian army, and the Women's Battalion of Death.

We'll also see "deeper player progression through all new assignments, the ability to tailor your playstyle with specializations, and new multi-battle experiences woven through the fan favorite game mode, Operations," says EA.

In The Name of the Tsar hits this September, and EA reminds us that two new night maps (opens in new tab) are also coming in June and July.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
