We have some important news for those of you with Premium access to Battlefield 3. DICE has just announced the content that players will receive as part of this month’s content drop, but you may be disappointed to hear that there are no exclusive in-game items to unlock.
Last month players had some new assignments to work towards which unlocked some new weapon camos for certain guns. This time though, there won’t be any in-game unlocks and you may feel slightly hard done by in terms of bonus content.
Having said that, the content on offer isn’t exactly terrible though. DICE are giving premium owners the chance to see some brand new exclusive footage from the upcoming Armored Kill expansion. The video will be going live on August 29 and you’ll find it in the video section on Battlelog when the date arrives.
Last month we had a premium strategy guide which gave users a detailed insight into how to master Close Quarters and this time DICE is releasing some ‘exclusive’ concept art which DICE say have never been shown to the public before. The art booklet will be in electronic form like the strategy guide, so you’ll be able to save it to your computer and store for future viewing.
Last but not least, there are two premium events that are also taking place before the end of the month. The first is a standard double XP event which starts this weekend, while the second gives you the opportunity to pitch your ‘best map’ idea to DICE for a chance of winning a signed limited edition Battlefield 3 lithograph.
The double XP weekend is a little different from other times though, as you can extend the duration of the event by liking the following page on Facebook. That’s it for the August content – how do you feel with this month’s drops Premium members? Would you have liked to see more assignments and more camos to unlock in game?
It does feel like a tame update, but we’re guessing that DICE will be making up for it when early access to Armored Kill arrives at the start of next month. View the full updates here.
