Taking the stage at this year’s Gamescom, Executive Producer Patrick Bach introduces and dates the earlier rumored Battlefield 3 Premium Edition and finally lets fans know when they can get their hands on battlefield 3’s third expansion pack, Armored Kill. We also get our first glimpse at Battlefield 3’s fourth expansion pack, Aftermath.
Battlefield 3 Premium Edition is all Battlefield 3 content “rolled in to one amazing package,” according to Bach. This September 11 in North America (September 14 in Europe), those who’ve not yet jumped on the Battlefield 3 train will get the chance to do so not only at a cheaper price, but with the benefits of a full Premium membership as well. Additionally, new players will be treated to a multiplayer welcome kit that includes various weapons and vehicle unlocks to get them in the fight quicker.
Update: The official Battlefield 3 Facebook page lists Battlefield 3 Premium Edition for $69.99 USD.
Lastly, a brand new Battlefield 3 Premium Edition trailer was showcased featuring our first glimpse at the Aftermath expansion pack as well as the last map included in the Armored Kill expansion pack, Death Valley.
Bach also announced that Battlefield 3: Armored Kill will be available to download September 4th for Premium members on the PlayStation 3 first.
