Most have assumed that EA was considering a Call of Duty Elite-like service for the vaunted Battlefield franchise.
Now, it appears that EA will indeed announce a similar program at E3 2012. This news comes from Battlefieldo and if accurate, the official announcement drops on June 4. That just so happens to be the date of EA's E3 2012 press conference. Here's part of the leaked description:
" Battlefield Premium will land you a number of content drops with unique in-game items not available anywhere else. First out is the one-of-a-kind Premium knife and black dog tag, plus a set of soldier camos, weapon camos, dog tags and Assignments that will make sure you stand out and get more personalization options. "
The report also lists dates for upcoming new content, including the currently unofficial fifth expansion pack. The new Close Quarters DLC will evidently launch on June 12, followed by additional content in August. Then there's the third expansion, Armored Kill, in the fall, and the fourth expansion, End Game, set for this winter.
So if you prefer Battlefield over Call of Duty , this is obviously the premium service for you. But let's wait for the details, shall we?
