Don’t let the fact that Battlefield 4 is being worked on stop you from checking out the third game. Starting today, Battlefield 3 Premium Edition will be available on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC for the cost of $59.99 (used to be 10 bucks more before EA had a change of heart, strange). Now, if you’re wondering why you should even think about picking up the Premium Edition, keep in mind that it’ll come with a membership for Battlefield Premium (it’s like Call of Duty Elite, but much better in my opinion), which’ll give you free access to a ton of expensive map packs.
In addition to the membership, Battlefield 3 Premium Edition will also come with a “Multiplayer Head-Start Kit” that automatically unlocks 15 different weapons, gadgets, and vehicle upgrades, so new players won’t have to worry about starting off with lackluster equipment. So if you haven’t tried BF3 yet, and you want to, now’s the time to do so. For more info, visit the game’s official site here.
