Battlefield 1 Premium Pass Detailed

Surprising absolutely no one, Battlefield 1 is getting a year’s worth of add-on content wrapped up in a “Premium” package. A new listing details what’s included in the $50 DLC bundle.

The first expansion for the World War I game, They Shall Not Pass, focuses on the French army. You’ll be able to dive into that in March 2017, with a two week head-start for Premium members. Later on in the DLC cycle, DICE will add the Russian army.

In total, there will be four expansions (each likely to be priced at $15 when purchased individually). The Premium pass includes 16 maps, 20 weapons, 14 dog tags, and 14 battlepacks that will be delivered monthly starting in November 2016.

Battlefield 1 will be out on October 21. You can read more about the game’s revamped Rush mode in our Gamescom hands-on. You can also read about how EA is making big changes to how you’ll access Battlefield games in our interview with executive vice president Patrick Söderlund.

Our Take
There’s nothing surprising about the price or core content of the Premium offering. Battlefield and Call of Duty have been pushing $50 season passes for years.

I’m interested to understand a bit more about how the implementation of different armies will work. Is this just a factor of the historical locations featured in the add-ons? Are there marked differences in the forces? I’m sure we’ll know more later, but floating the addition of two armies does warrant a bit of explanation.
