Oh, im in on this shit BIG TIME. Its goint to be BF1 all the way in this household once this shit hits. Both my kids and I are totally in. All the BF games were a hit around my house. Even the fail that BF4 was in the beginning, it was all good in the long run. Fuck Battlefront!
EA usually releases a premium version 2-3 weeks before launch, which includes season pass and premium pass. I pre ordered just regular windows edition on bestbuy, if you have GCU its $48 and you get a $10 preorder bonus (RZ points). That plus Titanfall 2 is $95+tax, you get back $20 in certs, PLUS between now and 8/21 if you checkout with visa checkout you get an addition $9-10 off making each game $33. Even if I upgrade later to premium, hard to beat $33 for launch game.
EA PC games nowadays come in a case with just a single Origin code in it, no disc even. You won't be able to early access play or play at midnight, have to wait for the box to arrive unfortunately. If you have an xbox one and EA Access, both games should be playable a few days early on the console (but stats/etc don't carry over from one platform to another).
Someone took the voice over of a Gears of War 2 trailer and put it over the Battlefield 1 trailer. The voice over is an excerpt of "I Have a Rendezvous with Death" by Alan Seeger who later died at the Battle of the Some(1916). The poem was published posthumously.
