Battlefield 5 will add post-launch DLC at no additional cost

Battlefield V will not receive a Season Pass and instead follow a similar model to Titanfall 2 where DLC will be released free of charge post launch.

This is a further nail in the coffin of the paid Season Pass as studios investigate new ways to roll out DLC in the future. It’s also a major move for EA who had previously offered a Premium Pass for it’s predecessor, Battlefield 1.

That said, paid cosmetic items will be available to players should they wish to purchase them, and a ‘catch-up mechanic’ is also being investigated for the future.

Battlefield V will be set during WWII and releases for PC, PS4, and Xbox One this fall.
