There are some good reasons to buy the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass right now but there are also a few good reasons to wait.
With the first Battlefield 1 DLC expansion out and the next one on the way this summer, the $50 Battlefield 1 Premium Pass, the game’s Season Pass, might be tempting you.
Is the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass Worth It?
While some of you might be ready to commit more money to Battlefield 1 right now, others might be better off waiting a few more days or a few more weeks before buying the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass for Xbox One, PS4 or PC. Others might want to skip the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass.
This guide will take you through some reasons why you might want to pick up the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass today and why some of you might want to hold off, temporarily or permanently.
Buy It If You Want the Battlefield 1 DLC ASAP
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 one might be the early access you get to the game's downloadable content.
If you're a Premium Pass holder, you'll get the game's three remaining 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 bonus also should apply to the free Battlefield 1 maps that fall outside of the DLC expansions.
DICE recently confirmed a new map called Nivelle Nights. The map is set at night and it features the French and German armies. The company's also confirmed another free map for Premium Pass owners called Prise de Tahure.
Nivelle Nights is coming to Premium Pass holders in June, possibly alongside a base Battlefield 1 update for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. Prise de Tahure is coming in July.
DICE's first free map, Giant's Shadow, arrived a week early for Premium Pass holders so there's a chance Premium Pass holders will get first dibs on these maps when they arrive.
