Battlefield 3 Premium Edition retail version announced
Everything you want in one explosive package.
How does a boxed version of Battlefield 3 plus a Battlefield Premium membership plus all DLC plus a “Multiplayer Head-Start Kit” sound to you? Because it’s something you’ll be able to get next month. Shock and awe, etc.
DICE has announced (or, perhaps more appropriately, confirmed the inevitable) Battlefield 3 Premium Edition retail set, which includes pretty much everything you’ve ever wanted, except maybe a radio-controlled velociraptor.
“Since launch, over 15 million people worldwide have enjoyed the thrill of Battlefield, and with the release of Battlefield 3 Premium Edition the community is set to surge once again. Packing a ton of gameplay at an incredible price, there has never been a better time to jump in and see what all the fun is about. We look forward to seeing some new faces on the battlefield,” said Battlefield 3 executive producer Patrick Bach.
The Premium Edition features more than 25 maps, over 70 weapons and vehicles, and “dozens” of unlocks and upgrades. With a Battlefield Premium membership, buyers will also get all DLC – already released and upcoming – bundled into the deal.
No local pricing has been set yet, but the Premium Edition is tagged at £49.99 in the UK, or just £15 more than the Battlefield Premium membership cost on its own.
