[Battlefieldo]BF3 Premium Service is No Rumor

post #1 of 102
Thread Starter 
Quote:
There has been a lot of dancing around the subject, but no actual denial when it comes to the "rumored" Battlefield 3 Premium Service. Take Alan Kertz, for example.

Well, this is fine and all, but what does this tweet mean? Notice the words "Rumor and Speculation".

Those words provide no intention of denial, but exerts a rather subliminal way of saying "I wish you'd only post what I/We (DICE) approve of".

We can happily confirm that the Battlefield 3 Premium Content Service is no rumor, and is definitely set to launch on June 4th, 2012, along with the double XP for PC players.
When the "rumor" first started circulating, we had a credible source, which turned out to be right. Now we have multiple sources which are all saying the exact same thing.

The date may be subject to change as of now, since this post has gone live, but remember - it's coming, and with the mix reaction of fans, who knows where it'll take the Battlefield franchise.

Here's some the information regarding Battlefield Premium. Thanks to our good friend 32bita:

Battlefield Premium contains all 5 Battlefield expansion packs with early access, new camos, and exclusive in-game items for a one-time fee.

You know what, i am not sadden by this at all, as long as the price is right, as i will buy them all anyway.
I really hope they are not only making 5 expansion packs, they better make more!!!!!

"Premium" makes it sound like some subscription service, which obviously doesn't work for FPS. I don't understand why they don't just call it a 50$ quintuple expansion pack or something...

If they keep up with their current format of 4 maps and 10 weapons per pack (according to the B2K and CQ packs), that will amount to 20 maps and 50 weapons (hmm) total? Plus vehicles etc blah blah blah.

If the price (including whatever extras they hopefully throw in) is right, it could work out as a nice accumulated expansion pack.

If they are "offering" all the packs in their "service" whatever its implementation, they will have to be discounted from the current pack price (when assessing the overall price of the service, whatever it will be or how they will implement it).

Edit: Didn't read the one time fee part.

I cant see it being 30.

My guess is 40-50.
DLC all in will run you 75 dollars in the end if you just get those.
