$60 Battlefield 4 Premium Edition Coming to All Platforms Except Xbox 360
Premium bundle will include main game and all DLC, but last-generation Xbox fans are out of luck.
[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, an EA representative confirmed that Battlefield 4 Premium Edition will not be released for Xbox 360.
"Battlefield 4 Premium Edition will not be coming to the Xbox 360 due to technical limitations," the representative said.
The original story is below.
Electronic Arts will release a Battlefield 4 Premium Edition on October 21 that features the main game and all of its downloadable content. The $60 bundle will be available on that date for Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.
The official announcement today made no mention of an Xbox 360 version. We have followed up with EA for clarification.
The Battlefield 4 Premium Edition includes a Battlefield 4 Premium membership (normally $50), which gives you five expansion packs with 20 maps, as well as new modes, weapons, and vehicles.
Below is a breakdown of everything included with the Battlefield 4 Premium Edition.
- Battlefield 4 single-player and base multiplayer
- Five multiplayer expansions -- Second Assault, China Rising, Naval Strike, Dragon's Teeth, and Final Stand (launching this fall)
- Priority position in server queues (an existing perk for Premium subscribers)
- 12 bonus Battlefield 4 Gold Battlepacks
- Exclusive personalization options, including camos, paints, emblems, and dog tags.
Interestingly, October 21 is the date that EA had planned to launch Battlefield Hardline, before the publisher delayed the game to 2015. The announcement of the Battlefield 4 Premium Edition is likely to be seen as a positive for investors, as it means EA will indeed have a "new" Battlefield game released this year after all.
Battlefield 4 celebrates its first birthday later this month. We recently caught up with DICE producer David Sirland, who told us that there is no doubt that the game's early technical issues damaged the trust gamers have in the studio. Going forward, however, he said these issues won't be repeated.
