Battlefield Premium Costs and Details Revealed
A post on MP1st has snooped out information regarding EA’s planned rival to the “Call of Duty Elite” subscription plan, apparently called “Battlefield Premium.” The UK and Danish sites for European retailer, CoolShop, lists the service for a planned release on June 29, with prices that translate to about $60, says the post.
The listing offers this information about the DLC that gamers can expect to receive when the subscription service launches this summer:
“BF3 Premium Service is 1 code in a box to give the consumers early access to the BF3 DLC expansion packs – Back to Karkand (already released), Close Quarters (releasing June), Armoured Kill (releasing Sept) and End Game (releasing December).”
In addition, the post offers rumored details for what the package will include:
- 20 Maps
- 20 New Weapons
- 10+ New Vehicles
- 4+ New Game Modes
- 30+ Assignments
- 20+ Dog Tags
- Also includes “Premium Benefits” which are made up of skins, camos and most importantly early access to all DLC.
The post also proposes that the as-yet unannounced fifth DLC pack is named “End Game,” and is set for a Spring 2013 launch.
But as reader Joh points out in the comments below, there’s a discrepancy between the rumored release date of Spring ’13, and the one from the BFP listing above. So which is it? Chances are, December ’12. It would make more sense for the retailer to know what’s up, I think. But at the same time, who knows? I sure don’t. I didn’t even catch this the first time around. What a jerk I am.

I’m sure we’ll hear all about what the service will or won’t have at E3 in June—so keep your eyes peeled, Battlefield 3 fans.
