EA have confirmed the existence of their new Battlefield 3 subscription service, entitled simply Battlefield Premium. Confirming the rumors from last month, Battlefield Premium will cost $49.99 and will get you access to five new expansion packs, including a host of new weapons, dog tags, and customization options.
End Games, Aftermath, Armored Kill, Close Quarters, and Back to Karkand will be the new packs, offering specific gameplay modes for each. Battlefield Premium is available now, and PS3 players can get access to the Back to Karkand right this moment, with PC and Xbox 360 players getting it next week.
