World War I shooter Battlefield 1 has already done exceptionally well for itself in terms of reception and sales, with EA recently confirming that the game has 21 million players. But that figure could be set to grow significantly in the next few weeks as a brand new version of the game way be released.
That news comes by way of Amazon France, which listed Battlefield 1 Revolution Edition for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. This version of the first-person shooter will reportedly include the base game as well as the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass which will include all DLC expansions: They Shall Not Pass, In the Name of the Tsar, as well as the third and fourth content packs that have not yet been revealed.
The Amazon listing had a European price of €60, but as it’s Amazon France, prices in USD and GBP were not mentioned. Moreover, a release date was set as August 22, 2017 and seemed to hint at additional content, but it’s unclear what this may entail.
Although the Battlefield 1 Revolution Edition is not yet official, and the Amazon France listing was taken down not long after fans caught wind of it, an announcement at gamescom 2017 next month seems incredibly likely. EA has already teased a significant gamescom 2017 presence including all of its biggest franchises, and the company has also promised to reveal a brand new Battlefield 1 eSports mode. It would make sense to reveal the Revolution Edition here before making it available just a few days later, capitalizing on the interest surrounding the game and its upcoming content.
For 60 Euros, the pass is around 20 Euros cheaper than it is to buy the game and the season pass right now, and those who have yet to jump into the Battlefield 1 action will be saving a lot of money if they wait to pick up the Revolution Edition. However, some will be asking whether it is worth investing in the game at this point at all.
During the same financial call in which EA revealed that Battlefield 1 is doing well, the company also revealed that a new Battlefield game will be released in 2018. It’s likely that there are still 10 months to go until EA formally announces this new game, and the company is unlikely to share too many tidbits before all of the Battlefield 1 DLC has been released. But some will be asking themselves whether they would be better off waiting for the new title or just buying the base game of Battlefield 1 instead of the Revolution Edition package.
Battlefield 1 is out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
