Finally acknowledging one of their worst kept secrets, EA and DICE have officially announced Battlefield 3: Premium -- the DLC bundle packs that offers several other mostly cosmetic perks -- at their E3 press conference in Los Angeles today.

The bundle package will be available to BF3 players on PlayStation 3 today and all of the details are exactly as had been oreviously rumoured.
The studio today unveiled Battlefield 3 Premium, an innovative new offering that includes five digital expansion packs including Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand, Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, Battlefield 3: Armored Kill, Battlefield 3: End Game and the newly announced Battlefield 3: Aftermath. These themed digital expansion packs introduce a massive amount of content including 20 new maps and weapons, four game modes, new soldier and weapon camos and much more. By upgrading to Battlefield 3 Premium gamers receive all five digital expansion packs for $59.99, ($49.99AUD on Origin) a $25 savings over purchasing each expansion pack separately, and will also receive exclusive in-game items, deeper personalization options, and advanced features making for the ultimate Battlefield 3 experience. Topping off the opportunity, Battlefield 3 Premium members will benefit from exclusive early access to all Battlefield 3 digital expansion packs starting today with Battlefield 3: Close Quarters on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Disappointingly however (and despite the trailer simply saying "available now"), it looks like PC and Xbox 360 players will have to inexplicably wait another week for the goods on June 12th 2012.

On a brighter note, the Australian pricing has now been confirmed as AUD$59.99 and only AUD$49.99 if purchased via Origin, which is amazingly the same figure as the US dollar North American release for a change -- actually technically a little cheaper as our dollar has lost ground in recent weeks.

Check out the Battlefield 3: Premium trailer below (or here in our HD video library).

I have to say, $50! How can us Aussie BF3 players so no?
Unless you had no plans to buy any DLC.

I was expecting them to charge us more in the $80 range. Considering the Back to Karkand DLC was $23.99 for those that had to buy it. I would assume the other DLCs will initially be around that price.

So yeah, I've already bought it. Now just have to wait a damn week for Close Quarters on PC.

Yeah I bought it at $50, because I'm sure at some point the price will go up for us.
