Battlefield 3 sweepstakes hits this weekend

Players of EA DICE's latest get a chance to visit the developer in Sweden, win a cash prize, or receive a console pack with Battlefield catalog.

Battlefield 3 sold through 5 million units in the week following its release. As a way to say "Thank You" for the passion and loyalty of its fans, EA is holding a prize-laden multiplayer event this weekend.

The grand prize earns a trip to Sweden…likely not via fighter jet.

The Battlefield 3 "Says Thanks" Sweepstakes will offer three distinct prize packages, and all who play the game from November 11 through November 13 will be entered to win. The grand prize is a three-night trip for the winner and three friends to tour BF3 developer DICE's studio in Stockholm, Sweden. The second prize is $5,000 (or equivalent local currency) in cash, and the third offering is a console with a full catalog of available Battlefield games.

DICE's latest large-scale shooter shipped 10 million units within its first week of availability. Its first premium downloadable content pack, Return to Karkand, will be available in December.

The full list of rules and regulations governing the sweepstakes can be found on Battlefield 3's official website. For more on Battlefield 3, check out GameSpot's review.

I agree with MuffintopX, give me the second prize. lol I wouldn't mind walking around their offices just to ask them uncomfortable questions like, when is Bad Company 3 coming out!? Or why didn't you guys create a Battlefield special addition Xbox, for the contest? With a 1 terrabyte drive! Ahahaha! They're lucky I don't work there!

BF3 is just epic, to be able to go into the studios would be a dream come true.

Man, I'd want the 2nd prize more than the grand prize.

Sounds like a nice little sweepstakes. I've been around the world a few times, but never to Sweden. That would be a sweet little win.

@Albaficas It's not free unless you got a limited edition, otherwise it's $15

I agree that Wake Island is an awesome map, but it still doesn't beat Par for the Course on BFBC.

Here's my promise to everyone: If I win the trip to their studios, I'll teach them how to build a properly scaled network infrastructure for future game launches. (Week 1 was ABYSMAL.) I will *try* to convince them that BC2 was severely lacking in the comedy department (compared to BC1), but clearly they're big fans of "MW:Me Too" SP campaigns now... Meh.

It'd be messed up for someone without any friends "Alright, I won a three night trip and a tour in DICE Studio" "Do you have friends to go with you?" "......no" FOREVER ALONE

I really think that it comes down to 2 things. If you like to be locked in a box or you feel better to be locked in a world. 2 me battlefield feels like a world and Call of Duty feels like a box!

@Landsharkk If I win first and you win second we'll trade then, 'kay?

Those of you who'd rather take the money than a free trip to Stockholm really need to get out more. You get a free trip to see a whole new part of the world. I'd take that without thinking twice! Money comes and goes, trips to new places in the world, that's rare.

But, but... Skyrim comes out on the 11th...

Unless after the tour they give me my very own M1 Abrams I think I'd rather have the second prize. Sounds like I'll have to slip in a few hours of BF3 in between my 48 hours of Skyrim. :)

I was at DICE HQ a month ago... pretty rad place. Stockholm is a sweet city. 3 days isnt enough to see all Stockholm has to offer.

If you get 1st place, I guess you could ask for the price of the plane ticket to the studio and hotel rooms in cash. I'd rather get the money :)

lol @Red-Sox come on man you must at least have family. I would prefer 2nd prize two of course but I've never been to Sweden before, the studio tour cant possibly last 3 days, so at least a day and a half to do sight seeing.

Yeah Id much prefer the 5K over touring their studio.

And how much will Back to Karkand cost if you didn't get Limited Edition?

I'd prefer the 2nd place prize because I have no friends

This sounds like a way to get players to keep playing Battlefield 3 after tomorrow's release of Call of Duty. Not that I need any motivation to do so, but winning prizes just for playing an awesome game is a win-win situation for everybody.
