Keep in mind that the individual DLC content itself cannot be purchased separately.

As incentive for purchasing the Expansion Pass, anyone who pre-orders will receive the Chef Outfit for Deadpool. The release plan for each piece of DLC is listed in the description of the Expansion Pass. According to this plan, the first DLC drop is scheduled for Fall 2019, with another simply listed as 2019. The last piece of DLC won’t release until 2020.

In our opinion, the pre-order bonus doesn’t feel exciting enough to warrant buying the Expansion Pass ahead of the first DLC drop.
