Battlefield 3 Limited Edition Details Released

Battlefield fans, we know you’re anxiously awaiting the release of Battlefield 3 this fall, and today we’ve got some good news for you. EA and DICE announced two editions of Battlefield 3 and the unique pre-order items available at participating retailers in North America today! Soldiers and squads looking to claim battlefield superiority this Oct. 25, 2011 have an array of options available when pre-ordering the game.

Battlefield 3 is proving to be one of the most anticipated games of 2011, having already earned over 50 awards including ‘Best Action Game’ and ‘Best Online Multiplayer Game.’ With the beautiful Frostbite 2 engine powering the game and the celebrated Battlefield feel, anybody can see why people are so excited for this one.

The standard edition of the game includes the single-player campaign, all 10 massive co-op maps and multiple multiplayer modes. The Limited Edition comes with a ton of extras to make your experience even better and you can get it at no extra cost.

Gamers who pre-order Battlefield 3 are assured a copy of the Limited Edition, which includes the Back to Karkand post-launch digital expansion pack at no extra charge. With Back to Karkand, players can wage all-out war on four of the most celebrated maps from Battlefield 2 including Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman and the Sharqi Peninsula, all stunningly re-created using the power of Frostbite  2.

Select retailers are also offering Battlefield 3 pre-order customers the following promotional items:

  • Physical Warfare Pack --Storm the battlefield armed with a set of three exclusive weapons in the Physical Warfare Pack including: 1) the Type 88 light machine gun with bipod for deadly firepower and total zone control; 2) the SKS sniper rifle flash suppressor that provides increased stealth abilities for Recon soldiers; and 3) the lethal armor-piercing flechette ammo for the DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun that will tear through anything in its path. Each weapon will be available for a limited time in-game, and will later become available to all players. Also unlocked is instant access to the highly versatile DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun.
  • SPECACT Kit -- Players can expand their customizable options in Battlefield 3 with a set of eight unique multiplayer skins, one for each class in Battlefield 3.
  • Dog Tag Pack-- In Battlefield 3, dog tags serve as the player’s in-game signature, allowing gamers to customize their soldiers. Dog tags are displayed on screen every time a player takes down an enemy or claims an opponent’s dog tags. This pre-order exclusive item comes with five new, unique dog tags.   

As an added bonus, players who pre-order the game from Origin will be granted early access to the Open Beta for Battlefield 3 when it goes live in September. Early Beta access is for US PC Download customers only.

Battlefield 3 will be available Oct. 25, 2011 in North America for the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 and the PC. PC gamers will be able to download the Battlefield 3 Limited Edition at Origin as well as over 100 digital retailers worldwide.

      Написали, что игра выйдет уже 25 октября, фигня осталась. Но уже сейчас вы можете предзаказать себе одну из двух версий. Пишут что игра еще не вышла, а уже получила кучу призов. Ну предлагают уже сейчас заплатить за Лимитированую версию

    Why do they always put Marines or Navy for all types of war games?! Why don't they include the Army? Stop glorifying them so much, the Army deserves to be put on some games too.

      i have huge respect for the army... but no lie... whenever i think of going on important missions i always think of the marines or the Navy Seals first... i think a lot of people feel this way too. nothing against the army though

      OK, the first and second battlefield bad company were the army so shut up and learn something. and so are all the mw2 and moh games along with army of 2 and ghost recon are all army. its a pretty even mix for army and marine games and the games that do have marines are usually low budget like flash point and bf 1943 witch is an "arcade" game. sorry we dont need glorified either, our total dod budget is lower than the army's budget for civilian contractors and we still provide 40% of the ground force in country.

    I have MOH LIMITED EDITION but haven't received the beta key for 48hours early access.......I'd be really disappointed if EA don't come through with their word of " those who have MOH LIMITED EDITION will have access to BATTLEFIELD 3 early BETA"

We are making great progress on Battlefield 3 and can't wait to share it with you. We will be rolling out the Beta during the month of September and you are still on our exclusive list to enter this Beta early.
