Haven’t tried your hand at Battlefield 3 yet? If you need something to fill the gap until the next Call of Duty or Halo, you should probably give it a shot. At least, that is what Dice and EA are hoping by announcing this Premium Edition, which is shockingly NOT labeled a “Game of the Year” Edition. Per the announcement from EA, the Premium Edition will include:
- Battlefield 3: Among the fastest selling titles in EA’s history, Battlefield 3 has sold more than 15M units since release. Lauded by game critics worldwide for its compelling single player campaign, intense co-op missions and its addictive and world-class multiplayer, Battlefield 3 has won more than 130 awards globally.
- Battlefield 3 Premium membership: Battlefield 3 Premium is an innovative offering that includes early access to five digital expansion packs including Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand, Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, Battlefield 3: Armored Kill, Battlefield 3: End Game and the newly announced Battlefield 3: Aftermath. These themed digital expansion packs introduce a massive amount of content including 20 new maps and weapons, four new game modes and more. Players will also receive new soldier and weapon camos, deeper personalization options, and advanced features making for the ultimate Battlefield 3 experience.
- Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Head-Start Kit: This kit will automatically unlock 15 different weapons, gadgets and vehicle upgrades so new players can immediately jump in.
All of this will set you back a cool $69.99, though EA is quick to remind us that purchasing all of this content individually would set you back a more significant chunk at over $100.
