As Rae pointed out yesterday, the new Battlefield 3 expansion has been released on PSN for BF3 Premium subscribers. Four new maps, three new modified vehicles, and a new scoped crossbow are included. Also the expansion adds the Scavenger game mode where gamers begin with only a pistol and must seek out more powerful weapons. The DLC is also available to non-subscribers at a cost of $14.99. The Xbox 360 and PC version for Premium subscribers is set to be released on December 4th. Meanwhile the regular release for non-subscribers will land on December 11th for PS3 and December 18th for Xbox 360 and PC.

Check out the action from these earthquake ravaged maps where you’ll be fighting for supremacy among the ruins in the launch trailer below:

Last year’s Battlefield 3 gets a little larger with the launch of the latest expansion, Aftermath, on the PlayStation 3 tomorrow in North America as long as you are a subscriber to the Battlefield 3 Premium service. Xbox 360 subscribers are going to have wait a week before joining in on the fun. None-Subscribers will be able to snag this add-on as a stand alone DLC for $14.99 on December 18th for Xbox 360 / PC and December 11th on PlayStation 3.

The Aftermath Expansion adds the following maps: Epicenter, Markaz Monolith, Azadi Palace and Talah Market. As well as several vehicles including the Phoenix, Barsuk and Rhino.

Jump Back Into Battlefield 3 With The Premium Edition

Posted on September 11, 2012 by Seung Lee

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.

Battlefield 4 Beta Access Included With MOH: Warfighter?

Posted on July 14, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

EA’s Origin service may have leaked the existence of Battlefield 4 early. Promotional banners for Medal of Honor: Warfighter promised users who pre-order the game exclusive access to the Battlefield 4 beta. THeadvertisements where spotted by users on NEOGAF and IGN before being pulled by Electronic Arts shortly after their existence was made public.

There is no solid proof that Battlefield 4 is even a real game, these banners are the first public omission of the game, and as such they could have been a mockup or placeholder of some kind. But considering the fact that Battlefield 3 was tested in the manual for the original Medal of Honor and Warfighter was teased in Battlefield 3’s case, there is a precedent for BF4’s existence.


Battlefield 3 To Receive The Premium Treatment With New Service

Posted on May 30, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Electronic Arts is following in the footsteps of Activision’s successful Call of Duty Elite service by offering a premium service that provides 5 expansion packs (including the already released Back To Karkand) with a two week headstart over the general public, as well as priority server access and strategy videos. Is all of this worth $50 a year?Read More
