These premium memberships seem to be awfully popular, so why not give it a shot?
There have been rumors concerning a "Premium" service for Battlefield 3 ; it would be a service that rivals the Call of Duty Elite option for die-hard CoD fans. Now, it's all but confirmed, as reported by Joystiq .
Earlier, leaks from Germany featured a lot of relevant details: First up, the service would require a one-time fee of $50 and this would bring BF3 fans "a variety of content," including access to all five of the present and future expansion packs, two weeks of early access to those packs, and "a host of unique in-game items not available anywhere else."
Then things get even more interesting, as apparently, Premium members will gain "access to powerful new features." How powerful, you ask? Well, maybe "the ability to reset stats" and "queue priority into servers," which means if you shell out the bucks, you'll get onto servers faster.
This might launch alongside the Close Quarters DLC on June 4 and after this leak, EA figured there's not much point in hiding it anymore:
"Looks like the excitement for Battlefield Premium cannot be contained. For details, please visit Battlefield.com on June 4."
Yeah, that's pretty much confirmed right there.
