Gamers are used to paying a premium for the limited edition of any given title, but EA will be bucking that trend with the release of Medal of Honor. Earlier this month, the publisher said that it would be packing in a handful of exclusive and early-access in-game weapons and camouflage to Limited Edition purchasers, all for the standard $60 price tag. PlayStation 3 gamers who pick up the package are even being offered a free copy of Medal of Honor Frontline.

Today, EA announced that it would be sweetening that deal even further. Those who pick up the Medal of Honor Limited Edition will also be afforded access to the multiplayer beta test for EA Dice's Battlefield 3.

EA has yet to announce a launch date or platforms for Battlefield 3 and declined to specify whether the offer would be extended to all three platforms that Medal of Honor will be available for. However, the publisher did note that the beta window will open up within 12 months of MOH's October 12 ship date.

The first installment in the series not to be set during World War II, Medal of Honor will follow a group of elite commandos called Tier 1 Operators during missions behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. With the single-player campaign being handled by EALA, DICE has taken the reins on Medal of Honor's online multiplayer.
