It Pays to PWN: Play Battlefield 3 This Weekend To Win Cash And Prizes

Make money, start wars! That’s right, soldiers: EA and DICE are thanking Battlefield 3 fans for their loyalty and passion by hosting a "Say Thanks" Sweepstakes weekend, where gamers who play Battlefield 3 online from Friday, November 11 at 12:01am GMT through Sunday, November 13 at 11:59pm GMT will have a chance to win one of three amazing prizes.

The Grand Prize is a doozy: an all-expense paid trip to DICE headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden for one lucky winner and three of their equally-lucky squadmates. Even better? Both the winner and his/her squadmates will get to tour DICE's state-of-art studio and meet the Battlefield 3 develolpment team! The rest of the prizes are nothing to scoff at either; one second place winner will bring in the bling with a $5,000 USD reward, while the third place winner will score a brand new game system, plus the full catalog of Battlefield games. Read the full details (fine print and all) right here.

Don’t forget that the Back to Karkand expansion is also deploying this December! Get four fully-remastered Battlefield maps, 10 iconic weapons (plus three new combat vehicles), a new persistence system, and a bunch of other goodies, all for $14.99 or 1,200 MS points on the PlayStation Network or Xbox LIVE Marketplace. PC players can pre-order the Back to Karkand expansion pack on Origin.

Got it? Good! Now move out and grab your copy of Battlefield 3 on Origin.

    Eligibility: Battlefield 3 “Says Thanks” Sweepstakes (the “Promotion”) is open only to legal residents of Canada (excluding Quebec) France, Germany, United Kingdom, and United States (excluding Florida and New York and including the District of Columbia) who are at least 18 years old when they enter the Promotion. Great. How about a global sweepstake since Battlefield is pretty much global? And scandinavia not being included anyways is weird to me since its up here Batllefield was born n raised

    That would be good if I could get online and play without the game crashing! Haven't played a full match in two days, none of the posted fixes work for me. Well guess I miss out.

    Sounds like a plan and time much better spent then playing Cod. I much prefer answering the call.

    And here I thought a European developer would at least have a contest in Europe. Why not mention and emphasize the eligibility in this post and hide it in the fine print? Guess you want to mislead people and hope they spread the word before they figure it out. Way to go.....
