Season Passes really are a leap of faith in a sense. Publishers ask consumers to throw money down on DLC that is usually fairly loosely defined. You don't always know what you're going to get.
This time, with Star Wars: Battlefront, consumers are being asked to make a pretty expensive leap of faith.
$59.95 to be precise. On PC.
On the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One it'll cost $69.95.
What do you get with that Season Pass? According to the official Star Wars Battlefront website, you get "four expansion packs coming at a later date, filled with new content that will take you to new locations across a galaxy far, far away."
Players also get two-week early access to those expansion packs and an exclusive "shoot first" emote.
So basically you are putting down $59.95 minimum on content with very little knowledge of what the content contains.
But unusually, Australia doesn't seem to be getting the raw end of the deal here. All regions are being asked to shell out. And, incredibly, the Australian price is one of the lowest.
In the UK it costs 40 pounds on PC, which is roughly $84 Australian.
In the US it costs $50 which converts to roughly $68 Australian.
Still, $59.95 is a lot of cash to shell out for DLC when you don't know what that DLC is. This is the world we live in.
