Battlefield 3 Premium is official, price and details finalised

During EA’s official E3 2012 pre-show presentation, DICE has made an official announcement regarding Battlefield 3 Premium. So now that it’s official, here’s the official details. Official.

Battlefield 3 Premium includes five digital expansion packs: Back to Karkand, Close Quarters, Armored Kill, End Game, and Aftermath. Together these introduce 20 new maps and weapons, four game modes, new soldier and weapon camos, and the ubiquitous “much more.”

Battlefield 3 Premium buyers receive all five digital expansion packs for $49.99, a $25 saving over purchasing each expansion pack separately, and they will get two weeks of early access to the expansion packs, starting right now with Battlefield 3: Close Quarters on the PlayStation 3. Regular Battlefield 3 PS3 players can purchase Close Quarters on 19 June.

For PC and Xbox 360 players, Premium buyers will have access to Close Quarters on 12 June, and regular buyers on 26 June.
