RUMOUR: Battlefield Premium Will Cost £35, 5th Expansion To Be Called "Aftermath"

Hotly rumoured, one-time payment service Battlefield Premium, has been spotted in the retail wilds, priced around £35 at launch, according to Coolshop.

According to MP1st, the service will include the following:

  • 20 Maps
  • 20 New Weapons
  • 10+ New Vehicles
  • 4+ New Game Modes
  • 30+ Assignments
  • 20+ Dog Tags
  • Also includes “Premium Benefits” which are made up of skins, camos and most importantly early access to all DLC.

The site also suggested that a fifth expansion called Aftermath is slated for later this year, pushingthe shadowy End Game back into 2013.

No doubt E3 will hold more information. We're so excited that we've doubled our emergency supply of toilet paper.

£35 for 5 DLC bundles. Or £7 each, which is a pretty good deal if you want them all anyways, I don't know if I do or not though. I mainly enjoy playing Metro still and am mainly waiting on the close quarters DLC.

They can eat dick if they expect me to pay DLC the price of the game at launch.

It's not really that bad when you consider how CoD MW3 is just a fricking DLC for MW2 and that was again full price and would have less maps than this in total.

CoD DLC was like £12 a pop, so if you were the sorta person to buy in to DLC, then this really is good value for money.

But I don't know if I am in yet or not.

The kicker will be how big the DLC packs are. DICE and EA have been consistently trying to reintroduce "expansion pack" into dialogue when it comes to Battlefield 3, and if one considers the BBC2: Vietnam DLC and Back To Karkand there's a good precedent there. £7 a piece might well represent good value...but that depends on the end result.

to be fair.. 20 maps, 20 weps and 10+ vehicles alone is quite an impressive list of extras. I'd happily pay that amount of money, there's near enough content to describe a new game. Couldn't agree more with the comment about MW2 just being a big expansion pack to MW2. The game engine hasn't even changed one ounce and the graphics (even in Black Ops 2) are starting to look severily dated next to Battlefield. (sorry for diverging slightly from topic)

So what if you have bought some of these expansion packs already?. Are EA going to offer a discount on the premium price for each pack you already own?.. Doubt it, it's only good value if you haven't bought any DLC.

Those who pre-ordered BF3 would of got the first expansion pack for free, so now it's 4 packs for £39.99* (£10 each). *origin price.
