Battlefield 3's premium service has just been confirmed, with a $79.99 price tag for Australian gamers.
The European PlayStation Blog were the first to leak pricing information, along with a launch date on June 4. Coincidentally the first DLC pack, Close Quarters, is also set to launch on June 4 at a cool $23.95.
Then the very official looking fact sheet placed below appeared from some German sources, outlining exactly what you get for your hard earned cash.
If you want the long and the short of it, you'll received access to all five DLC expansion packs two weeks early, along with "a host of unique in-game items not available anywhere else."
You will also have access to "powerful new features," which include the ability to reset stats, queue priority into servers and more. Sounds like those who pay will have a far better BF3 experience than the rest of us plebs.
EA told Joystiq the following, which means that the announcement is legit:
Looks like the excitement for Battlefield Premium cannot be contained. For details, please visit Battlefield.com on June 4."
