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.
