If you’re new to the franchise, look no further because this is the version of Battlefield to pick up. Included with the base Battlefield 3 game are the five themed digital expansion packs and a Multiplayer Head Start Kit designed to get noobs into the fight with ease.
This all-encompassing offer combines the original Battlefield 3 game, all Battlefield 3 Premium content including five themed digital expansion packs, and a Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Head-Start Kit that is custom-designed to help jump start players who are new to multiplayer by automatically unlocking 15 different weapons, gadgets and vehicle upgrades. Battlefield 3 Premium Edition delivers more than 25 maps, over 70 weapons and vehicles and dozens of unlocks and upgrades, making it the perfect entry point into one of the top shooter games of this generation. Priced at $69.99, the value that the Battlefield 3 Premium Edition provides is unbeatable when compared to purchasing all this great content individually at a cost of well over $100.
All in all a very solid deal with a lot of extra goodies for just ten bucks (USD) over the game’s original asking price of $59.99 Battlefield has gotten a lot of positive word of mouth (as well as critical acclaim) for its expansions as well as its multiplayer gameplay. On a personal note, while I’m not the biggest multiplayer fan in the world, I know a few Call of Duty fans that prefer B3’s multi over MW3’s, so they must be doing something right.
Here’s the breakdown of what’s in the box:
