Thanks to Battlefieldo, we have more information regarding the soon to be released “Premium” offering for Battlefield 3.
Originally it was feared that it would be a carbon copy of the idea for Call of Duties “Elite” offering, where a user would pay a monthly or yearly fee in order to get access to their content.
Set to be announced on the 4th of June, the Fee will be a once off amount (not determined yet), which will give you access to all current and newer DLC when it launches. There have been five DLC packs announced, including an unnamed DLC due after the “End Game” Pack.
The estimated cost of all DLC (minus Back to Karkand) is to be around $60, Likely a bit more for us Aussies. If it’s between $40-$60 knowing this, then it seems like a good deal for me.
On the positive side, this is now an easier method to get access to your DLC which can help minimize the typical fracturing from ordering single or partial amounts of Expansion packs.
