Battlefield 3 Pre-Order Bonuses Detailed
EA has announced a new round of pre-order bonuses for their upcoming wartime-shooter, Battlefield 3, exclusive to the US and the UK.
No matter where you pre-order the game at you will automatically be upgraded to the Limited Edition of the game which includes the previously announced Back to Karkand map pack. If you choose to not pre-order the game and want to purchase the DLC post launch you'll have to pay $14.99/£11.99 for it.
Different retailers will be offering up the following bonuses for pre-ordering the game:
Physical Warfare Pack - Type 88 light machine gun with bipod for deadly firepower and total zone control; SKS sniper rifle flash suppressor that provides increased stealth abilities for Recon soldiers; armor-piercing flechette ammo for the DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun that will tear through anything in its path.
SPECACT Kit - Players can expand their customizable options in Battlefield 3 with a set of eight unique multiplayer skins, one for each class in Battlefield 3.
Dog Tag Pack - In Battlefield 3, dog tags serve as the player’s in-game signature, allowing gamers to customize their soldiers. Dog tags are displayed on screen every time a player takes down an enemy or claims an opponent’s dog tags. This pre-order exclusive item comes with five new, unique dog tags.
If you opt to go with the Physical Warfare Pack the weapons offered up in the pack will only be available in the game for a limited time. You will also have the DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun unlocked for use.
Battlefield 3 is out on October 25 in the US and October 28 in the UK for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
