From the same sources that leaked initial details of Battlefield Premium, we’ve learned further information on what exactly might be offerred in this “premium” package. Of course, this information is unofficial until proven otherwise by DICE or EA, but here’s what we know so far.
Update 2: coolshop UK lists Battlefield Premium at 34.96 GBP which converts to just under $60.00 as well. (Thanks, Colonel Ramirez.)
Update 1: Danish retailer coolshop lists Battlefield Premium at 369 Danish Kroner which converts to around $60.00 USD. The description translated reads:
BF3 Premium Service is 1 code in a box to give the consumers early access to the BF3 DLC expansion packs – Back to Karkand (already released), Close Quarters (releasing June), Armoured Kill (releasing Sept) and End Game (releasing December).
It does not, however, list the 5th DLC, Aftermath, so we’ll have to wait for confirmation on that info.
Battlefield Premium will allegedly include:
- 20 Maps
- 20 New Weapons
- 10+ New Vehicles
- 4+ New Game Modes
- 30+ Assignments
- 20+ Dog Tags
- Also includes “Premium Benefits” which are made up of skins, camos and most importantly early access to all DLC.
These maps, weapons, vehicles game modes assignments and dog tags are spread across the following DLC:
- Back to Karkand
- Close Quarters in June 2012
- Armored Kill in Fall 2012
- Aftermath in late 2012
- End Game in Spring 2013
If this info is correct, this means we can expect a 5th, unannounced expansion pack titled Aftermath to be released before End Game. It is said that DICE will announce official details on June 4th during EA’s E3 press conference.
