    Although I may be too early in asking this, do you know if non-season pass holders will be able to purchase the dlc when it comes out?

    • If it’s anything like the DLC for ‘Rise’, people should be able to purchase the DLC as separate add-ons. It may just cost more to buy them all separately (which is probably why they offer a season pass).
