Rumors have been flying around from a cited “reliable source” and website Battlefieldo have leaked that Dice/EA may be announcing a Battlefield Premium service as early as E3 next month.
The source stated that:
“Battlefield™ Premium will land you a number of content drops with unique in-game items not available anywhere else. First out is the one-of-a-kind Premium knife and black dog tag, plus a set of soldier camos, weapon camos, dog tags and Assignments that will make sure you stand out and get more personalization options.”
Also stated was the fact that Dice may be dropping a fifth expansion pack DLC after End Game.
I wonder if EA are trying to cut in on the profit that ELITE received for Modern Warfare 3. Whatever issues COD ELITE may have, you cannot deny that it made Activision a good chunk of change up front, and EA are all about money. The question many of you are probably asking is if this premium service will require a subscription, or only entail a one time fee. Personally, I think it will take a leaf out of ELITE’s book and require a monthly fee in exchange for early access to DLC, special weapons and perhaps exclusive dog tags or even custom colors for vehicles and guns. But hey, it hasn’t been officially announced yet and the details we do have to go on are fairly scarce. E3 is just around the corner though, and I’m sure a lot of speculation from leaks minute to massive will be answered in no time.
