Battlefield 1 to get free DLC soon after release

It looks like the first of Battlefield 1's DLC will be free.

Battlefield 1 to get free DLC soon after release

Paid DLC has always been a point of contention in the gaming community, particularly with games like Battlefield.

So it should come as good news that some of the first DLC for Battlefield 1 looks to be free for everyone.

The DLC is listed as part of a pre-order bonus on Origin that grants 7 days early access to the free map drop, which will then presumably become available to all players.

The map will probably release shortly after the game if it's already being listed as an incentive to pre-order, so it's likely to be the first bit of extra content we'll see.

Does this bode well for EA's DLC plans for Battlefield 1? Or should we not get ahead of ourselves?

Battlefield 1 is scheduled for release on October 21 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
