There are good reasons to buy the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass right now, but there are just as many reasons to hold off on spending another $50 on the new Call of Duty until we know how the new maps play.
You will get regular Call of Duty: WWII updates that fine tune features and that may add some weapons and weapon variants to Supply Drops, but maps are only coming through the DLC.
Activision and Sledgehammer Games announced The Resistance, the first Call of Duty: WWII DLC for January 30th on PS4. This map pack will arrive on the Xbox One and PC in March. There are four DLC map packs total and you will get them first on PlayStation, but there is no way to play early like you can with some Battlefield DLC.
You can buy a special Call of Duty: WWII edition with the Season Pass, or the Season Pass or just buy the DLC packs you want individually, though that can limit the matchmaking later in the game’s life. The Season Pass is $49.99 and available in stores and digitally on your console or PC.
Is the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass Worth It?
When you buy the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass you are basically buying a second game, and that’s a big investment. We’ll help you walk through the reasons why it makes sense to buy it today, and why you might want to wait until after the first DLC has been out for a week, or even why you may want to wait until DLC 2 is out. If you decide to buy the Call of Duty: WWII DLC, the Season Pass is the way to go, simply due to the $10 discount over buying individually and the split playlists you may end up in if you pick and choose the DLC that you want.
The good news is there is a new Resistance Call of Duty: WWII event running through February 27th, which includes free supply drops, 2XP playlists, new weapons, new game modes and a new division. All of that is free to all players, so you don’t need to buy the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass to get these extras even though the event shares a name with DLC 1.
Our guide will walk you through the reasons you should buy the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass today, and why you should wait for a few weeks, or maybe skip it entirely.
