Battlefield 1 Premium Pass Detailed, Includes Four Expansions and New Armies

battlefield-1-320

There will be a Premium Pass for Battlefield 1, and EA has laid out exactly what it will include.

Although EA hasn't officially announced the Premium Pass for Battlefield 1, someone at the company must have pushed the wrong button, because a page detailing it showed up on Origin yesterday. The Premium Pass will give purchasers access to four planned expansion packs, and they'll get to play them two weeks early.

The first expansion will be titled They Shall Not Pass. Scheduled to launch in March 2017, it will add the French army to the game. One of the later expansions will bring the Russian army to the game as well.

Also included in the Premium Pass are 16 new multiplayer maps, 20 new multiplayer weapons, 14 unique dog tags, and 14 Battlepacks containing "stand-out weapon skins," which will be delivered monthly beginning in November 2016.

The Premium Pass will run $49.99 on top of the game's $59.99 price tag. Alternatively, you can grab the Battlefield 1 Ultimate Edition, which includes the Hellfighter pre-order pack, three days of early access to the game, the Red Baron pack, the Lawrence of Arabia pack, three vehicle skins, five Battlepacks, and the Premium Pass. Of course, it's got a Premium price tag as well, as it will set you back $129.98.

Battlefield 1 is set to launch on October 18.

The French are an expansion pack army in a game about WW1? O.o

Ugh. Fucking hell. Wait a year till the next one is out then get this rip-off when it's marginally less insulting to the consumer.

Jesus Christ EA, at least wait for the game to be out before you start shaking people down for twice the game's retail value.

Indeed, with Hardline retailing at $6 on PC eighteen months after release it's hard to argue in favour of day one purchases. Especially when it take every Battlefield game 9 months to become good anyway.

Dont be complaining as if we all didnt know this was coming. Wait if you want......for me this is another 1000hr minimum gameplay sink.

Glory to the average American's historical knowledge and buying power I guess?

As are the Russians. Seriously? This is like making the Americans an expansion pack army in a game about fucking Vietnam War.

No.

The last "gameplay" trailer with Johnny Cash running in the background caught my attention, but this is way too much.
My guess is that they'll have massive launch issues, again, along with a few crippling bugs and with the huge price tag on top, this is basically EA going for a third, worst company award.
I'm not saying they deserve it for that reason alone, but it's a huge reason to give people to do it.

Also, grey market keys and similar shady businesses will grow from ridiculous shit like this.

I guess we can be grateful that EA hasn't renamed the Central Powers 'Turrists'.

Which was a continuation of the Indochina War in which the major western power was, ironically, the French.
