Don't tell me you're surprised that Battlefield 1 was getting a premium pass? Of course you're not. So how much is it going to cost and what's coming with it?
Well, cost is not announced, but if it's like Battlefront, it'll be $50.00. Hopefully, it'll be less than that, but I'm going to guess it's going to cost almost as much as the game itself.
Getting the premium pass will net you 4 DLC expansion and two weeks early access to each one. 16 new maps, 20 new weapons, new vehicles, new skins, new game modes, and a partridge in a pair tree will be all yours without having to buy them individually. I'm kinda excited about Operations as that sounds like how Battlefield 2 was if my memory is correct where the winning side would determine what the next map was.
Battlefield 1 is expected to be out on October 21 on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
