DICE makes Battlefield 1 premium pass free after Battlefield 5 open beta ends

All quiet on the western storefront.

Battlefield 5's launch may have been delayed by a month, but players may be willing to give DICE a free pass, as the developer is (quite literally) doing the same in return.

Between the 11th and 18th of September, players will be able to claim a Battlefield 1 premium pass to give them access to all the game's goodies. This includes premium maps, weapons, vehicles, operations and elite classes from the expansions.

Best of all, as the event is a giveaway, the pass will be yours to keep permanently. DICE said this is its way to "capstone all the giveaways and rewards from the Road to Battlefield 5," and boy, is it a significant freebie.

The premium pass normally costs Ł39.99.

As the pass gives players access to premium maps, many felt it divided the player base, and some within the Battlefield community expressed frustration at being unable to play with friends. DICE has admitted this was a problem, and has promised the premium pass will not be a feature of the upcoming Battlefield 5.

This latest giveaway will arrive a few days after the close of Battlefield 5's open beta, which is available to the public between the 6th to 11th of September.
