Battlefield 4 premium membership, expansion packs unveiled – Beta arriving this October
According to reports, DICE has announced Battlefield 4 Premium, an exclusive membership for Battlefield fans that will provide a host of new content that will keep fans on the edge of their seats all year long. Battlefield 4 Premium members are set to receive as many as five themed digital expansion packs – Battlefield 4 China Rising, Battlefield 4 Second Assault, Battlefield 4 Naval Strike, Battlefield 4 Dragon’s Teeth and Battlefield 4 Final Stand – and will also be offered two-weeks early access to each.
With the introduction of Battlefield 4 Premium, DICE will look to offer weekly content and unique personalization options, making it possible for players to dominate the battlefield in their own respective styles.
“Fan reaction to Battlefield 3 Premium has been nothing short of amazing. We are humbled to see more than 4 million people join in. With Battlefield 4 Premium we continue to roll out the red carpet, treating our fans like VIPs with a massive amount of new gameplay, exclusive new content and even more benefits at an incredible value,” said Patrick Bach, Executive Producer of Battlefield 4.
Taking center stage at the ongoing Gamescom, the Battlefield team has introduced a new mode called ‘obliteration’. The goal in this mode is to destroy the enemy targets before they destroy yours. To make things even more interesting, only one bomb will spawn at a time in a random location so both teams must fight to secure it, transport it to an enemy target and detonate it.
Battlefield 4 premium membership includes five digital expansion packs featuring new multiplayer maps and in-game content, and these are as follows according to the official press release:
“Battlefield 4 Second Assault – Includes four fan-favorite Battlefield 3 maps now re-imagined with the power of Frostbite 3. Available first on Xbox One.
Battlefield 4 China Rising – Players fight for dominance across the vast and majestic Chinese mainland. Available December 2013.
Battlefield 4 Naval Strike – Experience dynamic ocean combat as the Chinese armada takes the fight to the sea. Available Spring 2014
