No Season Pass for Battlefield 5

No Season Pass for Battlefield 5

All Battlefield 5 players will be getting a regular batch of new multiplayer and campaign content.

Battlefield 5, revealed today to a global audience, will not offer aSeason or Premium Pass when it finally launches in October 2018, EA has announced.

Instead, EA has committed to four total 'Chapters' of free DLC content, launching roughly every few months. These Chapters of DLC will feature new multiplayer content including events and maps, as well as new single-player campaign chapters of the War Stories, which were introduced back in Battlefield 1.

This exclusion of paid DLC for Battlefield 5 is part of EA's commitment to team gameplay for the game. You’ll always start in a Squad in Battlefield 5 when you drop into an online game (unless you purposefully opt out of it), and EA wants to keep all of its player base together in order to maximize the number of complete Squads in each game.

However speaking to USgamer on May 23, EA stated that microtransactions would be featured in Battlefield 5. The items you can purchase through microtransactions will be cosmetic only, and you can also earn these same items in-game.

We don’t yet know the full DLC plans for Battlefield V as of right now, but we can expect EA to reveal more details as the October 19 release of the game draws closer.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
