EA, DICE, and the Battlefield franchise have had a rough week. Analysts reported that Battlefield V was lagging behind in pre-orders. The company then decided to push the game’s release on November 20, a month after the original schedule. This has led to EA’s shares dropping in value. Still, it looks like the EA are still chugging along and doing what they can to reignite interest in their flagship FPS franchise. They’ve just recently announced that the Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 will be free this September.
Battlefield 1 — Free Premium Pass
According to a recent announcement, the Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 will be given away for free from September 11 to 18. The only catch is that you need to own the base game. And hey, if you’ve obtained it in any way, shape, or form from various sales and freebies, you’re all set.
Players will receive all the content that the Premium Pass entails as EA cited:
You’ll be granted access to all the maps, weapons, vehicles, and more from the four Battlefield 1 expansions — They Shall Not Pass, In the Name of the Tsar, Turning Tides, and Apocalypse. This means access to 16 multiplayer maps, new Operations and game modes, powerful Elite classes, and more.
That’s quite a lot. So if you’re one of those who grabbed Battlefield 1 but skipped out on additional content, this should be an absolute treat. Who knows, it might even convince you to give Battlefield V a try.
This seems like a great idea. What do our readers think? Is it time to check out the battlegrounds of World War I once more and then check out how things would turn out for Battlefield V? Or is it already too little, too late for Battlefield?

My Steam library has 1,131 games at the moment so we definitely have a lot of things to talk about.
