5 Reasons to Buy the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass & 3 to Wait

There are some reasons to buy the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass right now but there are also a few good reasons to take a rain check and wait.

In December, EA DICE released its second Battlefield 1 update for Xbox One, PS4 and PC bringing bug fixes, tweaks and a free map called Giant’s Shadow. In February, the developer released its massive Winter Battlefield 1 update for all three platforms. This is only the beginning.

DICE is planning to release new updates and Battlefield 1 DLC content for all three platforms throughout the year. The company recently released the first Battlefield 1 DLC, They Shall Not Pass.

The first Battlefield 1 DLC is out and the $50 Battlefield 1 season pass for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. DICE calls it the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass and it’s extremely tempting if you own Battlefield 1 or if you’re planning to buy.

The Battlefield 1 Premium Pass nets you all four planned DLC expansions including They Shall Not Pass, In the Name of the Tsar, Turning Tides, and Apocalypse. It also nets you some nice bonuses.

While some of you might be ready to commit more money to Battlefield 1 right now, some of you might be better off waiting a few more days or a few more weeks before picking up the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass for Xbox One, PS4 or PC.

This guide will take you through some reasons why you might want to pick up the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass today and why you might want to hold off for the time being.

If you know you'll want access to Battlefield 1 DLC as soon as its released for Xbox One/PS4/PC, you'll want to think about picking up the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass right now. 

The Battlefield 1 Premium Pass comes with several perks but the best perk is probably the early access you get to the game's downloadable content. 

If you're a Premium Pass holder, you'll get the game's four expansion packs two weeks before non-Premium Pass holders. 

If you want to get a bit of a head start on learning the new weapons, new classes, new modes, and new maps, the Premium Pass is the route you'll probably want to take. 

The early release also applies to new Battlefield 1 maps that fall outside of the DLC expansions. 

DICE has confirmed a new map called Nivelle Nights. The map is set at night and it features the French and German armies.

Nivelle Nights will be coming to Premium Pass holders in June, possibly alongside a base Battlefield 1 update for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

DICE's first free map, Giant's Shadow, arrived a week early for Premium Pass holders.
