EA Unveils Battlefield 3 Limited Edition And UK Pre-Order Bonus Items

Share And Comment

EA and DICE have announced the contents of the Battlefield 3 Limited Edition and the UK pre-order bonus items that gamers can look forward to should they decide to pre-order the highly anticipated first person shooter ahead of its October 28th release. It seems that gamers are really looking forward to Battlefield 3 and it large numbers it would seem as it is being reported that the numbers of pre-orders for the game is over ten times the amount of pre-orders that were received for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

The name of the DLC that comes with the Limited Edition is in this picture. Can you guess it? (hint: it's not 'Battlefield 3')

Of course there is the standard edition which includes the basic game which features the single player, co-op and multiplayer mode to keep players entertained but you are here to find out about the Limited Edition so I shall reveal all to you now. Gamers who pre-order Battlefield 3 are assured a copy of the Limited Edition, which includes the deep and immersive Back to Karkand post-launch digital expansion pack at no extra charge (it can be bought separately for £11.99). The pack allows players to wage all-out war on four of the most popular maps from Battlefield 2 including Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman and the Sharqi Peninsula, which have been re-created using the Frostbite 2 engine.

Last but not least there are pre-order bonus items which are only available from select retailers so I’ve put the name of the shop/store in BOLD so you know where you need to go to get what you need:

Physical Warfare pack

  • A set of three exclusive weapons including: 1) the Type 88 light machine gun with bipod for deadly firepower and total zone control; 2) the SKS sniper rifle flash suppressor that provides increased stealth abilities for Recon soldiers; and 3) the lethal armor-piercing flechette ammo for the DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun that will tear through anything in its path. Each weapon will be available for a limited time in-game, and will later become available to all players. Also unlocked is instant access to the highly versatile DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun. This item is available to purchase in the UK at GAME and Gamestation and Origin.


  • Eight unique multiplayer skins, one for each class in Battlefield 3. This item is available to purchase in the UK at Amazon.co.uk.

Dog Tag pack

  • In Battlefield 3, dog tags serve as the player’s in-game signature, allowing gamers to customize their soldiers. Dog tags are displayed on screen every time a player takes down an enemy or claims an opponent’s dog tags. This pre-order exclusive item comes with five new, unique dog tags. This item is available to purchase in the UK at Play.com.

I'm a big gaming fan who has been playing games since ever since Pokemon Yellow was released in the year 2000. I'm just glad that there are decent rugby games on the PS3 now after years of nothing. I need another Uncharted game...NOW!!!!!
