Swedish developer DICE will bundle all Battlefield 3 downloadable content for a onetime fee, multiple sources have told Battlefieldo. According to the site, Battlefield Premium will launch on June 4 alongside a double XP promotional period for PC gamers.

The site reports that five Battlefield 3 expansion packs, as well as new camo and exclusive in-game items, are included with the purchase of Battlefield Premium. Additionally, players who purchase Battlefield Premium will receive early access to upcoming map packs, reports Battlefieldo.

To date, DICE has released just one add-on for Battlefield 3, the launch-day DLC Back to Karkand. Forthcoming map packs for the game include June's Close Quarters, followed by Armored Kill and End Game. A fifth pack is rumored to launch in March 2013.

Earlier this week, the same site reported that Battlefield Premium would be a service, and offer a range of content drops in much the same way that Activision does with Call of Duty: Elite. No mention was made in today's report of a price for Battlefield Premium. As of press time, DICE owner Electronic Arts had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
