    Howdy all,

    Quick question, loving the game so far and although only half way through leveling I can see this is my go to game right now.

    So, the question is about the season pass...I have never done them, from my experience with DLC's some I take others I leave but rarely end up with the full season pass package, but these DLC's looks somewhat like mini expansions and appear ta a glance as a must have to continue to progress/compete, but at almost the price of the game itself I'm a little put off.

    From what you guys have experienced compared to other season passes for other titles (I'm thinking COD and the likes as a comparison with the map additions and such) are these a must have and I just fork out the money and accept it or should i invest individually at the risk I end up paying more?

    cheers in advance (I probably could have started my own thread with this haha)

    Basically from what I can tell from what they have released so far in their next year of division, the PAID DLC (season pass) will be the big content updates offering new areas, weapons, gear and quests... maybe levels also for us to adventure to) while the free dlc would be adding new things (gear, missions and stuff) to what teh game is currently.

    for example the 1st dlc coming in April is going to add a new mission and allow trading between group members on dropped gear (while grouped). While the LAST paid expansion is titled "The Last Stand" which indicates we would get a decent lot of content before and be in a new area against a new enemy

    Think of the cost like a expansion set for an mmo, where you are paying for everything up front rather than wait and buying it... most the time works out a little cheaper but who knows with these games anymore.

    So Claymore and I hit 30 yesterday. With the story complete I would like to throw an invite out to any and all to just join us or invite us to dominate (or attempt) some DZ and challenge missions if you see us on. We are both lvl 10 DZ so pretty new to it but keen for some Phat Loots!!

    P.S. Its my fault we have been absent from most group ups at this stage because I'm a bit of a story junkie and I am that guy that sits through the movie sequences and dialogue when everyone else just wants to get on with it :emoji_slight_smile:

    by the sounds of it giving more if you stay rogue and it expires BUT then giving more for killing agents also seems to be higher so the risk may equal out again
