Battlefield 3 Premium Edition And A Quick Peek At Aftermath

Since we announced Battlefield 3 Premium back in June, over one million fans have signed up for the service and its perks, including early access to the latest Battlefield 3 expansion packs. But now, we’re offering a deal for those who have yet to experience life on the battlefield: Battlefield 3 Premium Edition.

Battlefield 3 Premium Edition includes the Battlefield 3 base game, plus the Battlefield 3 Premium service mentioned above. Because Premium Edition is geared toward new players, it will also include a new Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Head-Start Kit, which automatically unlocks 15 different weapons, gadgets, and vehicle upgrades for new players, making it easier to get started.

Battlefield 3 Premium Edition also offers great savings for new players, starting at just $69.99.

Learn more about Premium Edition—and upcoming Battlefield 3 expansion packs—in the gamescom trailer below. Pay attention, and you may even see a little bit of Aftermath:

    Purchased the BF3 Premium edition for $69.99, but was unaware that as a "Pre-order", even though the base game comes with this purchase, it is unavailable to download and play until Sept sometime on it's official release date (tech support informed me of this). Seems illogical that I can't even download and play the base game at this point, even though it's been out for quite a while...

    I bought the Labor Day sale unaware that it was a pre order as well, i just wanted the base game for my pc (have it on the xbox, and already knew what premium was). The only reason I upgraded was that I wouldn't have to buy any DLC for the cost of the game + 1 dlc package, didn't realise I would have to hold off untill september/november.

    Alright, I downloaded the updates on my xbox. I'm aware of the fact that armored kill doesn't arrive until sept. 11, but on my xbox 360, i see the maps of armored kill with people on it, playing it. It says i'm missing the DLC even though I have Premium. Can anyone help?

    I hope they bring back the barret 50 cal sniper rifle and have the option to have single to semi auto the m98b should have that option as well bring in the desert eagle handgun the Beowulf carbine and the 50 cals should be able to take out tanks like the barret does when u hit the rear end of tank taking 10-30% of damage those would be great to bring in on the next expansion pack and more prototype weapons should be added and i think u should look back on old games bring back the gun from ww2
