Battlefield 5 Removes Premium Pass, New Maps and Modes Will Be Free

Tides of War to offer months-long seasons with unique items and rewards.

Battlefield 5 (2)

In an announcement echoing the removal of paid DLC for Star Wars Battlefront 2, DICE announced that the Battlefield Premium Pass would be going away with Battlefield 5. That means no more expansion packs – new maps and modes will be free for all players.

Naturally, you’d think there’s a catch but the developer already confirmed that there would be no pay to win elements with the game. Perhaps cosmetics tied to loot boxes and such (though DICE didn’t outright confirm it)? That might tie into the new Tides of War. Described as a months long event, Tides of War sees players going on a grand tour of different conflicts.

It sounds a lot like seasons and will have new vehicles, weapons, face paint, dog tags and soldier skins to earn with thematic rewards as well. This is also where the new maps and modes would debut. Battlefield 5 launches in October with the first chapter of Tides of War – focusing on the fall of Europe – starting in November and lasting till early 2019.
