Expansions, updates and changes to multiplayer, DICE has come forward with a bit more information via the Battlefield 1 Website on all of these to help set the pavement for the future direction of the multiplayer aspect of the game.
The Spring update will be rolling out soon with details still a bit sparse however we do know that you can look forward to the addition of Platoons which will be a massive improvement to the way you can organize your troops on the field. More details on the remaining contents of the update will be provided soon. This is the first of several planned updates that will now be rolling out on a monthly basis, instead of seasonally, to bring you more content and fixes faster.
Along with the changes to the update system, a little bit more information was provided about the 3 expansion packs that are on the way.
These expansions are:
- In The Name Of The Tsar
- Turning Tides
These expansions will bring with them new weapons, maps and vehicles, which will greatly add to the size of the game. Little bit more information was provided regarding the first of these expansions – In The Name Of The Tsar:
In The Name Of The Tsar will bring you to the Eastern Front, where you will fight alongside the Russian army and witness the brutality of combat and the bitter cold of the Russian winters, as seen in the concept exploration images in this post. Prepare yourself for all new tactics employed by the Russian army. Though the frost is cold, the steel is colder.

Monthly Battlefield 1 Updates
We’re devoted to bringing you the best gaming experience in Battlefield 1. In the past, we did this in the form of seasonal patches. Considering all we have in store for Battlefield 1, we’ve decided to move to monthly updates. With this new tempo, we’re going to bring you more of what you want, faster than ever.
Turning your feedback into battle-tested improvements that everyone will love is important to us. We’ll utilize the Community Test Environment to iterate on your ideas and find the best ways to make our favorite game even better.
Speaking of updates, the Spring Update is coming soon. It’ll bring one of the most highly anticipated features: Platoons. Finally, you’ll be able to organize and join forces with your friends, execute swift victories, and achieve goals as one unit. Stay tuned for more info on Platoons and the Spring Update release.
In-Game Improvements and Tweaks to Operations
Planning for our next releases, we’ve heard you loud and clear. We still have some work to do to make the game as frictionless as possible. We’re dedicating the May Update to revisions that will improve your quality of life in Battlefield 1.
This includes streamlining the flow into matches (especially Operations) and improving many gameplay grievances that will hopefully make the action feel more balanced and fair. The development team is also working on a feature update to the Battlefield 1 Rent-a-Server Program which we hope to release soon.
