Well folks, as we all knew Battlefield 1 will be having the by now standard “Season Pass” for
items which probably should have been included with the game future downloadable expansions and enhancements. We have today learned the contents of the season pass and if you spend the extra you’ll be able to get your hands on
- 4 upcoming digital expansion packs, including two-week early access to each expansion pack
- Play as new armies including France in Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass, and the Russian Empire in an upcoming expansion pack
- 16 new multiplayer maps
- New Operations and game modes for more ways to play
- New Elite classes
- 20 new weapons
- New vehicles
- 14 Battlefield 1 Battlepacks containing stand-out weapon skins, delivered monthly from November 2016
- 14 unique dog tags distributed over the course of the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass period
you can of course check out their official site just over here for details and release dates for each expansion pack.
The gaming community is seemingly split on the subject of DLC. We hear a lot of people speaking out against expansion content such as this, and season passes in general but we still see them coming and we still see people buying them. It’s a contentious subject, but don’t forget to head over to our Facebook or Twitter, and let us know what you think in the comments sections (it’s a passionate subject either way, but let’s try to keep it clean!)
Battlefield of course releases on October 21st this year, and we’re promised a return to the old days or warfare, on Battlefield’s familiar epic scale. We have enjoyed the destruction and scale of Battlefield in the past, but we’re hoping they manage to keep some realism balanced in with the almost arcade gameplay they seemed to show at E3
