Battlefield 3 Premium Member Exclusives for August
Battlefield 3 is still one of the most played games on Xbox LIVE as well as PC and PS3. The introduction of their Premium service, similar to Call of Duty ELITE, has the hardcore paying a subscription fee upfront for exclusive benefits and a free pass for all the DLC.
I have some friends who play BF3 on a regular basis and they had already bought the first expansion before the service came out, which they would of gotten free otherwise. It’ a bummer, but I think the service has a lot to offer and is still worth the price because of exclusive digital goods like weapons, double XP, and videos.
DICE and EA wanted to give Premium members the low-down on what they’ll be getting this month:
