EA confirms Battlefield Premium, claims you are excited
Looks like the rather hilarious rumors concerning Battlefield Premium are pretty much true. Although Electronic Arts wouldn't discuss the details, it did confirm that Battlefield Premium was indeed a thing, declaring that the world was too excited to wait for an announcement.
"Looks like the excitement for Battlefield Premium cannot be contained," EA comically told Joystiq. "For details, please visit Battlefield.com on June 4."
The already controversial service will cost $50 and contains all five expansion packs, alongside future DLC, exclusive in-game items, the power to reset stats, AND server queue priority -- by far the most aggravating bit. So, it's going to be a real kick in the teeth to existing consumers, while EA gets to potentially make twice as much money off the sale of a game it released last year. It's a good enough scheme to be criminal.
It's just EA being EA once again, and driving the AAA game business further into the depths of degradation. Pretty disgusting, but at the same time, it's a become a form of self-imposed satire that I'm starting to see the funny side of.
