DICE and EA just introduced the "Premium Friends" program for Battlefield 1. This is a new way for those that own the Premium Pass for BF1 to invite their non-Premium owning friends to play with them in the new maps.

Speaking of Battlefest, the activities actually kick off tonight for the regular event. You can earn double XP from now until March 31st. You can also earn some easy scrap and a free dog tag. The full details on Battlefest can be found at Battlefield.com.
