When it comes to gaming, there are various bundles that developers tend to offer to their customers. For example there might be Deluxe bundles that come with additional in-game content, while the Basic bundle will contain just the game. The same can be said about EA’s Battlefield 1 where some gamers own a Premium Pass, while some don’t.
Naturally this has resulted in a bit of friction amongst players who own it and players who don’t, but this is a problem that the folks at DICE are hoping to address. This is also why they have announced a new program in the form of “Premium Friends”, a program where they hope to bridge the gap and provide a good experience to everyone.
According to DICE, “When creating a party in Battlefield 1 you may notice something new: if someone owns a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass the party will become ‘Premium Enabled’. This will allow anyone in that party to play on all maps, regardless if they own the content or not. The access is available as long as the party is ‘Premium Enabled’.”
