Battlefield 1 Is Getting A New “Premimum Friends” System

When it comes to Battlefield 1 players, there’s a bit of a divided between those who have the Premium Pass and those that don’t, which means they often get split off into separate groups when it comes to DLC. That changes today with the addition of the “Premimum Friends” system, which allows you to play with your friends on every map for free, whether you have the DLC or not.

They way it works is simple: as long as someone in your party owns the Premium Pass, then you and everyone in the party will be able to play on the DLC maps. There are a couple of things to keep in mind however. “While all players will be able to play on maps accessible through Battlefield 1 Premium Pass through Premium Friends, some experiences are exclusive to Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners”, said Andreas Skoglund in a recent post. These experiences are:

  • In a ‘Premium Enabled’ party, only owners of a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass or the specific expansion pack will earn XP from the maps exclusive to that expansion. We will save the XP for everyone else and grant them retroactively if they decide to get the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass for themselves.
  • Only owners of a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass or the specific expansion pack will be able to spawn in with weapons and vehicles unique for the expansion.
  • Only owners of a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass or the specific expansion pack will track progress towards the unique medals and codexes for the expansion.”

In other words, the only thing you can do in these maps is play on them; if you want to do anything else, you’re going to have put down $50 to get the pass. It’s better than nothing, but it’s going to still be a tough pill to swallow for some people I’m sure. Battlefield 1 is out now for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
