Battlefield 3 Premium Service Details Leaked
Not to be outdone by Call of Duty Elite, Battlefield 3 will be getting its very own premium service for a one-time fee of $49.99.
The premium service will provide all sorts of perks and goodies like access to five themed expansion packs, two weeks early access to said expansion packs, a host of exclusive in-game items, exclusive events, exclusive double XP weekends, server queue priority, dog tags, weapon camos, wait…server queue what?
As if finding a decent game isn’t hard enough because DICE servers are all rented out, now Battlefield 3 Premium subscribers are going to get the priority over the common folk who don’t wish to pony up.
The premium service might not be a bad deal if you planned on buying all of the expansions, this might be the deal for you. Back to Karkand currently runs $15 (or 1200 MSP) and each new expansion will likely run the same. You could potentially save $10 or $25 provided you didn’t get Back to Karkand for free.
Either way, it looks like premium services for games are here to stay.
Look for an official announcement on June 4th at www.battlefield.com/premium.
