War in the East is fan-proposed DLC for Battlefield one based on the various actions in the Far East and Pacific Ocean during the First World War, including the Siege of Tsingtao, the Australian invasion of German New Guinea, and the Battle of Penang.


The First World War is often seen as a European war, however, it was a truly global conflict, with battles taking place in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, with the battles in East Asia and the Pacific are some of the least well known. The War in the East DLC takes you to these far flung, forgotten battles. Land in Tsingtao with the Imperial Japanese Army, experience the naval clash in the Strait of Malacca, fire the first American shots of the war, and join the Japanese intervention against the Soviets in Siberia.


Note: Some weapons references events of Second World War- this is not unprecidented- canon BF1 skins also reference post-WWI events.
