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 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.
