Several weeks ago, an Amazon leak outed a Revolution Edition for DICE and Electronic Arts' first-person shooter Battlefield 1, which detailed all of the contents of a "complete" version of the game. While the information was inadvertently shared ahead of time, the title's publisher and developer have decided to make it official during gamescom 2017 by announcing the release of the Revolution Edition today.
As seen in the video below, DICE and Electronic Arts have also put out a launch trailer to celebrate the availability of Battlefield 1's Revolution Edition, and the companies give players a glimpse at all of the action awaiting them in the compendium. For $60, fans will be privy to the first-person shooter's base game, as well as its premium pass, which offers up access to the four DLC expansions of They Shall Not Pass, In the Name of the Tsar, Turning Tides, and Apocalypse – each of which adds new maps, weapons, and game modes.
Furthermore, Battlefield 1 fans who buy the Revolution edition will also receive the Red Baron, Lawrence of Arabia, and Hellfighter packs, with each providing items, vehicles, and emblems based on their respective heroes. Basically, those who have been waiting for the chance to get Battlefield 1 at its launch day price while also receiving every single add-on would do well to jump on this deal as quickly as possible.
The next DLC pack to come in Battlefield 1 will be In the Name of the Tsar, and it drops in September to add six maps, two Operations, 11 new weapons, and other content to the World War I-inspired shooter. Following this will be Turning Tide in December to let players take part in "amphibious warfare," while the last DLC pack, Apocalypse, is set to be released sometime in early 2018.
As an added bonus to today's release of Battlefield 1's Revolution Edition, a new map has gone live, with season pass owners now able to give the In the Name of the Tsar expansion's snowy Lupkow Pass a go. Plus, should fans pony up the money for what is essentially the title's "Game of the Year Edition" now, they will be able to start getting ready for the new 5v5 Incursions game mode, which is coming in September with an alpha testing period.
Battlefield 1's Revolution Edition is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
