Price and Date of Battlefield 3 Premium Service Leaked
Reportedly a PSN EU update has revealed a price and date for the Battlefield 3 Premium service. According to that the Battlefield 3 Premium will cost gamers £39.99/€49.99/AU$79.95 anually and will be available for all on June 4, 2012
Eurogamer spotted this but has since been removed. A formal reveal is expected at an E3 press conference next Monday.
Similar to Call of Duty Elite, paying customers of the Premium Battlefield 3 service will have access to DLC early and for no further cost. Call of Duty Elite has 10 million registered users and two million of those are paying customers.
According to IGN “An alleged English fact sheet for Battlefield 3 Premium, also leaked out of Europe (via German site gamersunity.de), claims Battlefield 3 Premium subscribers will also have access to a unique in-game knife, a variety of exclusive soldier and weapon camos and other perks, like “queue priority into servers” and exclusive double XP weekends.”
