Electronic Arts has made a major announcement at their recent Gamescom press conference, officially announcing the Battlefield 3 Premium Edition, set for release this September. The new edition will give gamers the Battlefield 3 game, as well as all the premium content most Battlefield 3 gamers are enjoying at this moment.
“Since the release of 15 million players worldwide have experienced the thrill of Battlefield. With the release of Battlefield 3 Premium Edition, the community will sit up one more time. With gameplay very much at an unbeatable price, it’s never been a better time to convince yourself of how much fun this game. We look forward to seeing many new faces on the battlefield.”
With the game you will receive 5 expansion packs and the still to be released packs before everyone else. These include Back to Karkand, Close Quarters, Armored Kill, End Game, and the recently announced Aftermath. You will also receive all the content included with the maps, from weapons to game modes. The edition will also include the Battlefield 3 multiplayer Headstart Kit. This kit will automatically free 15 weapons, gadgets and vehicle upgrades, so new players can become involved directly.
Doesn’t sound like a bad deal when priced at $70, considering the price of the game and Battlefield Premium separately would cost the gamer more. If you are interested in investing in Battlefield 3: Premium Edition, it will be available to purchase in North America on September 11th and in Europe on September 14th.
