Battlefield Premium took off with a great start. Patrick Soderlund, boss of EA Games said that the Battlefield Premium has pulled in 800,000 users, and has sold $40 Million digital copies, just in the time of 2 weeks.
Patrick said that the current figures are ahead of what EA anticipated. He continued and said that it’s too early to tell how successful it would be. Given the fact that it launched just few weeks ago.
“We’re actually only two weeks into it, so it’s a little early to tell how this is going to pay off,” Soderlund said. “It certainly looks very promising right now.”
Comparing Battlefield Premium with Call of Duty: Elite annual subscription for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, it has pulled in 2 million paying members since it launched in November. Similar to Battlefield Premium, Call of Duty: Elite grants users access to several maps and perks.
Battlefield Premium comes with early access to all 5 DLCs (Back To Karkand, Close Quarters, Armored Kill, Aftermath and End Game) combining them together, players will get a total of 20 new maps for the game. Apart from the content, the people who purchase Battlefield Premium will get access to all the maps earlier than non-premium members.
