We live in an age where season passes are the norm but quite a few of them offer very little for the cost, like the one for Batman Arkham Knight. However, some of them bring a bit more to the table. EA is about to have its biggest game launch of the year in the form of Star Wars: Battlefront, and ahead of its release this week, we now know the DLC plan for the next 12 months or so.
EA has revealed the Season pass content for Battlefront, which will include four ‘expansions’ in total, similarly to how Battlefield works with Premium.
The season pass will get you access to 16 additional multiplayer maps, four new game modes, a ‘shoot first’ emote, four new hero and villain characters along with new weapons, Star Cards and vehicles for both the Rebels and Imperials. The season pass itself comes with a hefty price tag, costing £39.99, so it will be up to you to decide if that content justifies the price.
Star Wars Battlefront launches on the PC, Xbox One and PS4 on the 19th of November. The first season pass DLC will be out early next year.

KitGuru Says: I have been playing the EA Access trial of Battlefront over on the Xbox One and it’s quite fun, there are some decent game modes in there, though I’m still not a big fan of Walker Assault. Still though, I have my doubts about the season pass, particularly since I hate it when the player base gets split due to premium maps.
