EA/DICE Confirms Double XP Weekend For Battlefield 3 This Weekend – Get A Better Return On Your Fragging

leave a comment »

EA has today announced that another ‘Double XP’ weekend is in the works for Battlefield 3 with the next lot of double XP grabbing festivities kicking off June 16 at 8.01am BST. For the uninitated or the painfully slow, this basically means that you’ll receive double the usual amount of XP across all matches on all maps when playing only on ranked servers. The double XP goodness ends June 18th at 7.49am BST and the promotion applies to the game on all formats; 360, PC and PS3.

Just what I need to get to rank 45 then – getting piss sick of seeing everybody else killing me and passively taunting me with their shiny, numbered emblems. The twats.

As an additional note, PC and 360 owners who decided to plonk some of the Queen’s down for Battlefield Premium will find that the Close Quarters expansion is available for download today; PS3 folk got knee deep in that shizz last week.

E3 2012 – EA Releases Launch Trailer For Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Expansions No.2 – Close Quarters

with 2 comments

Following on from their Battlefield Premium announcement that was leaked here, comes the release of the launch trailer for the first Battlefield 3 DLC expansion pack that has launched since the game did back in September last year (Back to Karkand was available at launch).

Each of the Battlefield 3 expansion packs have been designed with a particular focus in mind.  Therefore, it shouldn’t be too difficult to guess what playstyle ‘Close Quarters’ will be gunning for.  The next pack after this one, Armored Kill, is due to be released in September and will focus almost exclusively on vehicle based combat; giving you huge maps with which to ply your thunderous exchanges of vehicle against vehicle in.

Take a look at the trailer below and see if the focus on infantry combat in ‘Close Quarters’ floats your boat:

Battlefield 3: Close Quarters is available now for free on the PS3 if you’re a Battlefield Premium member.  A week later for 360 and PC owners who are Battlefield Premium members.  A week staggered after that for PS3 and then PC and 360 formats for £9.99/1,200 Microsoft Points respectively.  

The official release schedule  for the expansion can be seen here:  http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield3/1/close-quarters

Pre-E3 2012: EA reveals then pulls, Battlefield Premium trailer. Good thing we have it here then eh?

with 3 comments

In a little boo-boo that’s quite likely to send somebody to the back of the unemployment queue, feasting on a spectacular diet of Transform-A-Snacks and White Lightning, someone at E3 accidentally published the Battlefield Premium trailer a few hours ago.  Obviously, somebody who actually liked their job at EA has since taken it off the internet, preventing the mass-prying eyes from looking at it prematurely.

Well good job we have it here then eh?

The trailer shows off the primary perks of the Battlefield Premium package which include:

  • Access to all five Battlefield 3 expansion packs
  • Two-week early access to every pack from this month’s ‘Close Quarters’ pack onward
  • Access to twenty new guns
  • Access to ten brand new vehicles
  • Additional dog tags and customisables

Best of all, the server says that Battlefield: Premium is out now; though obviously that is complete bollocks – unless of course somebody else at EA has a OCD for signing unemployment cheques.

The trailer can be seen below:

Battlefield: Premium is expected to launch late tonight for around 4000 MSP/£39.99.
