What a weird time we live in....
A publisher makes a press release to ensure customers that Season Pass does indeed include all the DLC for a season that's barely started.
Though, with WB I wouldn't be surprised to hear any news, even if they made an infuriating announcement about day 1 DLC that is not included in the season pass or that their future offline game will require monthly subscription...

Micro transactions, subscriptions, separate DLC and all other ways that game companies can make extra money will only increase in the future.
COD constantly does this "day 1 DLC" shit. It's a way to make extra revenue.

You can't tell people "talk with your wallet" because most die-hards will shell out any amount of money to get the full experience of a game. Hard to say no to something that you love.

I'm sure this is a great game, but I've had my fill of Middle Earth after I saw the entire LotR and Hobbit trilogies :)

You know its bullcrap when the first DLC comes out a month later. Most of this should be base game.

I don't really agree considering how big the game is to begin with.
