CONTENT AND SERVICES

What does early access mean?

All Battlefield 3 Premium members will have two weeks early access to all upcoming expansion packs including Battlefield 3 Close Quarters.

PlayStation 3 players will still also enjoy one additional week early access to all expansions. This means that PlayStation 3 players with Battlefield 3 Premium will be able to access expansion packs one week earlier than other Battlefield 3 Premium players.

Where do I access my new content?

You will be able to access your strategy guides, exclusive videos, Premium-only News posts, and new online features on Battlelog: http://battlelog.battlefield.com

Your expansion packs will appear in the in-game store at no extra charge for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players. PC players can download each expansion pack as they are released via the Game Details Page in your Origin Client. 

Will I be able to reset all my Battlelog stats?

The Premium-exclusive reset functionality will allow you to reset your kill/death ratio, score per minute, score per minute/class, win/loss ratio, and global accuracy.

Any or all of these stats can be reset at any time through Battlelog. A public note will appear on your Battlelog profile stating when you last had your multiplayer stats reset.

What does queue priority mean?

Battlefield 3 Premium members will be prioritized when they are waiting for a server slot to free up. This does not guarantee instant access.

How do I participate in the competitions?

Information about competitions will be announced as Premium-exclusive news on Battlelog. Keep an eye out there for more information.

Will there be prizes for the competitions or events

Yes! Prizes will be awarded for some of the competitions. We will reveal more details at a later time.
