No Russia or France in Battlefield 1 unless you pay $50 for the Premium Pass

Battlefield 1 DLC

It was intercontinental alliances that caused WW1. It began when Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, causing Russia to jump in and defend Serbia. Germany then declared war on Russia to protect their allies, which prompted France to jump in and defend Russia. When Germany attacked France via Belgium, Britain entered. Eventually Japan, Italy and the US also jumped in, but the conflict was well underway at this point.

Looking at the catalyst, it's quite clear that Russia and France were two of the main combatants, but they're being held back as DLC for Battlefield 1 that you'll either need to get via the Premium Pass or presumably buy separately. For some reason, this isn't the case for the US and Britain.

There are also 16 multiplayer maps, 20 new weapons, Battlepacks and some other gubbins. Here's everything you get in the $50 expansion pass:

  • 4 upcoming digital expansion packs, including:
  • Two-week early access to each expansion pack
  • Play as new armies including France in Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass, and the Russian Empire in an upcoming expansion pack
  • 16 new multiplayer maps
  • New Operations and game modes for more ways to play
  • New Elite classes
  • 20 new weapons
  • New vehicles
  • 14 Battlefield 1 Battlepacks containing stand-out weapon skins, delivered monthly from November 2016
  • 14 unique dog tags distributed over the course of the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass period

The first expansion, They Shall Not Pass, is released in March, so you've got plenty of time to decide before dropping almost the price of a full game on its extras. 

Battlefield 1's open beta begins August 31.

Absolutely baffling, who on their right mind would support this shit.

No one would, but EA knows that conscientious gamers are the minority. The mindless unwashed masses who doggedly buy every major FPS release will buy this unquestioned, and they'll make bank for it.

Sorry but I'm just not playing this expansion pass game any more. Go find some other less offensive ways to grab your cash like selling kitten mittens or robbing old ladies.

DLC will split the playerbase yet again, just like Battlefront.

Are you seriously surprised by this. This is classic EA. If you really want to play this game just wait a year will all be super cheap and you'll be able to get all the DLC with it.

It's by far the country that sacrificed itself the most,it lost 60% of it's male pop. aged 18-55 and 28% of its total population
