Yes indeed, 1.3 million of you have opted to give EA and DICE a lot of your money because you believe Battlefield 3 Premium is just that good.
The news was divulged in EA’s Q1 earnings.
Battlefield 3 Premium allows players to gain early access to downloads tied to Battlefield 3, including map packs Close Quarters, released last month, September’s Armored Kill pack and Aftermath in December. The last map pack dubbed End Game will be out next year, leading up to Battlefield 4′s release.
It was just two weeks after EA launched BF3 Premium, the publisher announced over 800,000 gamers had already subscribed to the paid service. “We are very pleased with the performance so far,” said EA Games President Patrick Soderlund in a June.
As for if EA will follow a similar model with its other titles, Soderlund couldn’t speak on the situation, but said “It certainly looks very promising right now.”
