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.
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.
