Developers reveal the pre-order bonuses for the PlayStation 4’s and Xbox One’s digital versions of DICE’s and Electronic Arts’ forthcoming title, Battlefield 1.
With the World War I-inspired Battlefield 1 having just been announced yesterday, developers are starting to share more details about the game, including the title’s recently revealed multiplayer classes. Now, following the shooter’s major reveal on Friday, DICE and Electronic Arts have put forth all of the bonuses fans will get if they pre-order the digital versions of Battlefield 1 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Although the base game itself will presumably remain about the same on both of the current generation consoles, the digital pre-order bonuses for Battlefield 1 are slightly different for the systems. Pre-purchasing the release on either the PS4 or Xbox One will give gamers access to the Hellfighter Pack, which contains items themed around the Harlem Hellfighters, as well as seven-day early access “to a map released later in 2016,” but that’s where the similarities end.
If fans pre-order the digital iteration of Battlefield 1 on PlayStation 4, they will get an exclusive theme, but it seems as if the Xbox One bonus is a bit more worthwhile. Instead of a simple cosmetic change for the console’s interface, those who secure their copy of the game on Microsoft’s system early will get a one month EA Access membership that has to be redeemed by November 3.
While the digital pre-orders may offer plenty of goodies for some fans, those with a little extra dough in their pockets might want to go ahead and get a fuller Battlefield 1 experience with the game’s Exclusive Collector’s Edition. Not only does it contain the majority of the contents listed above (save for the one-month EA Access membership), but also fans will get a 14″ statue, a cloth poster, a deck of playing cards, a messenger pigeon tube with DLC content, a patch, and loads more.
Of course, since the existence of Battlefield 1 has only been public knowledge for a little over a day, a lot of gamers might wait until DICE and Electronic Arts show off more of the title’s assets before immediately plopping down their money for the release. Naturally, most fans intrigued by what Battlefield 1‘s final product is going to be like will gravitate toward the game’s open beta once it goes live.
In any event, there ought to be plenty more details for Battlefield 1 announced before its launch in October to give gamers a better idea of its contents. If the official reveal trailer is any indication of its overall quality, though, fans of the franchise are in for a treat this Fall.
Battlefield 1 is set for release on October 21, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
