Name Notes
Season Pass Season pass does not include any other DLC but is rather DLC containing all other DLC.
As such, soundtrack is located in <path-to-game> rather than Steam music folder.
Additionally buying DLC seperately is still possible even if you own Season pass, do not buy separate DLC if you own the Season pass!
