The Premium pass is now available as a stand alone purchase or as part of the Ultimate Edition.

EA DICE is planning four Battlefield 1 DLC expansion packs for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The first Battlefield 1 DLC add-on is called “They Shall Not Pass”.

The Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass DLC will focus on France and it will add new multiplayer maps, and more, to the game.

Details about the French army, the new maps and the rest of the DLC’s content are scarce at the moment and we don’t expect EA DICE to elaborate for several weeks at least.

So, if you plan on buying the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass in the near future, you’ll be doing so with very little information.

As for the rest of the DLC, the company hasn’t named the remaining three expansions though it does note that an “upcoming expansion will bring the Russian Empire into the battle.”

It also notes that the four DLC packs will bring 16 new multiplayer maps, new Operations and game modes, new elite classes, 20 new weapons, and more vehicles.

EA says that “details and release dates for each expansion pack” are coming soon. How soon is anyone’s guess at this point.

Before the paid DLC arrives EA DICE will release a free map for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC users.

The first free Battlefield 1 DLC, dubbed Giant’s Shadow, will arrive in December alongside a free update for all three platforms. Here is how EA DICE describes Giant’s Shadow:

Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide.

Those who pre-ordered a copy of Battlefield 1 get the Giant’s Shadow map a week before those who failed to pre-order the game.

EA DICE says that it will be releasing new details regarding Giant’s Shadow in the near future. Keep an eye out for an announcement.

As for the first paid Battlefield 1 DLC expansion pack, it will arrive in early 2017. For Premium Pass holders at least.

The Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass release date is confirmed for March though we assume this is for Premium Pass holders.

These release windows usually don’t apply to those that buy the DLC add-ons as a standalone piece of content.

As for the three other expansion packs, EA typically puts a couple of months between its DLC releases so we’d expect the second DLC add-on to emerge in May or June of next year.

Nothing is confirmed but the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass price hints at the price of the individual Battlefield 1 DLC expansion packs.

With the Premium Pass price set at $50/ 40, we expect each add-on to cost $15 on its own. Season passes always offer a bit of a deal and we’d expect the Premium Pass to offer the same $10 discount EA gave to Battlefront Season Pass holders.

We fully expect these DLCs to be sold as standalone pieces of content giving those that skip the Premium Pass a chance to buy them.

Not going to say I won't buy Premium, because I always end up buying it. But I'll wait for the first expansion to drop before I make that purchase.

I'll first see what game patches drop before spending any money on season passes.
