DICE today announced the addition of a companion “Premium” membership to Battlefield 3.
The new offering includes 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 new content including 20 new maps and weapons, four game modes, new soldier and weapon camos and much more.
By upgrading to Battlefield 3 Premium gamers receive all five digital expansion packs for $49.99, a $25 savings over purchasing each expansion pack separately, and will also receive exclusive in-game items, deeper personalization options, and advanced features making for the ultimate Battlefield 3 experience.
Topping off the opportunity, Battlefield 3 Premium members will benefit from exclusive early access to all Battlefield 3 digital expansion packs starting today with Battlefield 3: Close Quarters on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.
“Battlefield 3 is the most physical, dynamic and progressive shooter experience on the market. At DICE, we are dedicated to connecting our fans around the world, nurturing their competitive spirit and delivering new content that exceeds their every expectation. That is what Battlefield 3 Premium is designed to do,” said Patrick Bach, Executive Producer, Battlefield 3.
With Battlefield 3 Premium players have the unique chance to reset their Score/Minute, Kills/Deaths, Win/Losses and stats if they want a fresh start with their multiplayer soldier. To further recognize their status, players will receive queue priority, more decals for their Platoon emblems, and the ability to save their favorite Battle Reports.
Battlefield 3 Premium is available on PS3 and PC for $49.99, as well as for 4000 MS points on Xbox 360.
