EA is going to release a premium service for Battlefield 3 on June 4th (The day EA’s E3 2012 briefing will take place), a “reliable source” has told Battlefieldo. According to the website, the service will be called Battlefield Premium, and will allow players to access an assortment of exclusive content.
The first batch of content that will be given to Battlefield Premium members will be a knife and a black dogtag, and also a set of soldier camo, weapon camo and assignments. More content wasn’t revealed, and it wasn’t made clear if the Battlefield Premium will obtain a subscription fee.
If Battlefield Premium comes to realization, it will be following Activision’s Call of Duty: Elite. A free paid service that provides members with downloadable content and other exclusives, apart from anything else.
In addition to that, EA also hinted a Battlefield subscription service in the past. In March, executive vice president of EA Games, Patrick Soderlund said,
“Like all other companies, we’re looking at how we can maximize our investment in this, get the most out of our investment, and get more people playing this product. That may take us to different places, but we’re not really talking about where that is yet.”
