Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass, Ultimate Edition Announced
At least four DLC packs on the way.
Ahead of Star Wars Battlefront's launch next month, EA today announced plans to offer a season pass for the shooter which sounds similar to what's been offered for developer DICE's past games.

The season pass provides access to four expansion packs "coming at a later date." EA didn't provide any specifics regarding what these packs will consist of or how often they'll be released. It did, however, say they'll be "filled with new content that will take you to new locations across a galaxy far, far away," suggesting new maps will be a key component.
In addition to presumably getting the four DLC packs at a discount, season pass owners get two weeks of early access to each expansion. The pass also comes with a "Shoot First" emote.
Listings on the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store, and Origin all list a $50 price for the season pass. Assuming EA and DICE follow the same setup as the recent Battlefield games, the DLC packs are likely to cost $15 each.
If you know upfront that you'll be buying the season pass, you can opt to pick up the newly announced Ultimate Edition of Battlefront. This version of the game includes everything that comes with the Deluxe Edition, as well as the season pass. A price for the Ultimate Edition wasn't mentioned, but the Deluxe Edition on its own costs $70.
Battlefront's open beta continues to be available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. It was originally scheduled to end today, but EA has extended it until Tuesday, October 13. The full game launches on November 17.
