Own more with the Battlefield 3 Premium Edition!
This is the ultimate Battlefield 3 experience for everyone from first-time players to experienced Battlefield vets. The Battlefield 3 Premium Edition delivers all the driveable vehicles, destruction and team play of Battlefield 3 plus Battlefield 3 Premium membership, which includes all five Battlefield 3 expansion packs, and the Multiplayer Head Start Kit to even the playing ground when you log into multiplayer.
The sheer number of options available to you on the field of combat is astounding. The four player classes—Assault, Engineer, Support and Recon—each have their specialties, and learning how these work with each other is the key to victory. Like taking the heat? Play Assault, and revive your fallen teammates on the front line. Prefer the distance of a sniper? Take the long view as Recon and neutralize the enemy threat before it appears. However you like to play, there’s something here for you.
Combat on the field of battle is more hectic and visceral than ever, and that’s in large part thanks to the incredible sound design. Near-misses whine by your head, provoking an immediate panic response; the rising drones of approaching aircraft keep you mobile; and the never-ending chatter of gunfire reminds you that you’re in constant jeopardy.
Fortunately, the controls feel as tight and responsive and familiar as you’d expect. It’s nice to know you can rely on them in the face of everything around you falling to chaos. Adding to the fun is your ability to commandeer any vehicle you come across, from tanks and buggies to helicopters and jets. Slam your F/A-18E Super Hornet directly into an enemy combatant! Why not? In this game it’s fun to do whatever you want, just because you can. DICE understands this, and it’s why players keep coming back.
But the further incentive for continued play is in the tons of unlocks: Ranks, Ribbons, Medals and the ongoing leveling that results in specializations that enhance your prowess. Stick with your helicopter, for example, and unlock IR flares that ward off oncoming missiles, or increase your stealth capabilities. Or equip a flak vest to reduce splash damage from explosives. Or any of scores of other options. There’s an embarrassment of riches on offer, and every second of play puts you closer to unlocking more. Build up to the loadout of your dreams to annihilate your opponents with extreme prejudice.
Really, though, it’s all about the multiplayer maps. Battlefield 3 has your back with nine maps that offer all the challenge you can handle. Choke points with plenty of destructible cover? Check. Wide open spaces for crazy vehicular combat? Roger that. Multi-level urban environments on a Ranked server with your squad’s reputation on the line? Affirmative. The only thing between triumph and total destruction is you, and that’s just the way you like it.
Your squad is waiting… don’t let them down.
Armored Kill Expansion Pack
Battlefield 3: Armored Kill ups the ante for vehicular mayhem as only Battlefield™ can do. Drive five new vehicles, including tank destroyers, mobile artillery and an ATV—or spawn on a gunship and man the cannons. Take your explosive destruction onto huge new battlefields for an all-out vehicle assault, including the biggest map in Battlefield history.
Back to Karkand Expansion Pack
The Back to Karkand Expansion pack revisits four of the most popular maps from Battlefield 2, revitalized on DICE’s state-of-the-art Frostbite 2 engine. Plus, get a whole slew of new content, including ten new custom dogtags, five new achievements and trophies, eight new personalized camos, a new persistence system with 12 assignments, three new vehicles, and ten classic weapons.
Close Quarters Expansion Pack
War gets up close and personal with the Battlefield 3: Close Quarters expansion pack. Close Quarters moves the action off the large-scale maps that Battlefield 3 players are used to and into smaller and ever more dangerous environments. With tight level designs, cover is scarce, so you’ll need to watch your back – and every other angle. There’s no knowing when the bullets will fly.
Aftermath Expansion Pack
Urban warfare takes on the dust and rubble of post-earthquake Tehran with Battlefield 3: Aftermath. Use the cracked and fissured terrain to your tactical advantage to quell your enemies. Climb into new, heavily modified military and civilian vehicles specially adapted to deliver deadly force in the ravaged urban streets and sprawl. Slug your way through a whole new game mode, tackle new assignments, and earn new achievements and dog tags. Aftermath takes urban destruction to a whole new level.
End Game Expansion Pack
Battlefield 3™: End Game delivers high-speed warfare across four vast new maps. Race through enemy lines with the new dirt bike, combat aerial assaults with new lightweight AA vehicles, and deploy troop transports from above with the new dropship. Coordinate lightning fast attacks in Capture The Flag, or engage in massive dog fights in Air Superiority.
