If you have not yet gotten into Battlefield 3 and you have been waiting for the right time to do so, it would appear you might want to wait just a tad longer. Electronic Arts has confirmed that they will be releasing what they are calling the Battlefield 3 Premium Edition.
What exactly is the Battlefield 3 Premium Edition, you ask? Simply put, it is everything Battlefield 3 all in one package. That’s right: you get a Battlefield Premium subscription, all of the DLC map pack content, the multiplayer welcome kit, the newcomer upgrades, and, of course, the Battlefield 3 game with the online play code.
The price point will be $70, and that is actually a great value for the money and the best deal you can get if you just want to get into Battlefield 3. Look for it to arrive on retailer shelves in North America on September 11, 2012. The European release will be September 14th. When the Premium Edition is released it will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms.
