Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass Announced And People Aren’t Happy

If you’ve been enjoying the Star Wars Battlefront beta this week and were planning on getting the game, EA have kindly reminded everybody that they are in fact still EA, with an eye-watering season pass price.


Having recently announced that Battlefront would not be built around microtransactions, the planned DLC will cost an unfathomable £39.99 on top of the game’s base price of £43.99. This means the full experience is going to clear a lot of people’s wallets out at around £83.98. All this while having no single-player, no campaign mode and no space battles.

So what do you get for that money? A day out with Boba Fett? 15 minutes alone with Jar Jar Binks and a steel bat? George Lucas’ soul? No. Four DLC packs that will apparently be “filled with new content that will take you to new locations across a galaxy far, far away” and a vague release date of “soon.”

All we do know, is that season pass owners will get two weeks early access to whatever the packs include, as opposed to those who buy them separately. If EA and DICE follow suit with the Battlefield 4 DLC, these will likely be announced at around £12.


Naturally, this news has awoken some sort of primal rage in gamers.


Star Wars Battlefront will release on November 19 on Playstation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
