Here's your Battlefield 3 pre-order DLC

4:30 PM on 08.04.2011 // Nick Chester

Battlefield 3 looks like it's going to be a hit for Electronic Arts, with the publisher saying that pre-order numbers are up more than ten times that of Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

So that's good news, but it wants more pre-orders. And how do you get people to pre-order? Well, first you offer them a "Limited Edition," which everyone who pre-orders the game will be "upgraded" to. It features the "Back to Karkand" downloadable content we previously told you about. You snooze on the "Limited Edition," you can buy that content for $14.99.

But on top of that, EA has brokered deals with various retailers (including itself for its Origin service), to offer exclusive incentives. You seeing anything that would have you choosing one retailer over another?

GameStop

Physical Warfare Pack -- Storm the battlefield armed with a set of three exclusive weapons in the Physical Warfare Pack including: 1) the Type 88 light machine gun with bipod for deadly firepower and total zone control; 2) the SKS sniper rifle flash suppressor that provides increased stealth abilities for Recon soldiers; and 3) the lethal armor-piercing flechette ammo for the DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun that will tear through anything in its path. Each weapon will be available for a limited time in-game, and will later become available to all players. Also unlocked is instant access to the highly versatile DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun.

Best Buy

SPECACT Kit -- Players can expand their customizable options in Battlefield 3 with a set of eight unique multiplayer skins, one for each class in Battlefield 3.

Amazon.com

Dog Tag Pack -- In Battlefield 3, dog tags serve as the player’s in-game signature, allowing gamers to customize their soldiers. Dog tags are displayed on screen every time a player takes down an enemy or claims an opponent’s dog tags. This pre-order exclusive item comes with five new, unique dog tags. 

Origin

Free shipping, Play4Free items (807S Shotgun and beret), Early beta access and the physical warfare pack (PC direct download only)
