Battlefield 4 premium service access further discussed

EA’s upcoming next installment into the “Battlefield” franchise will feature a premium service for those who pre-order “Battlefield 4.” The developer has now confirmed that any pre-order through any outlet (both physical and online stores) will grant access to the game’s premium service. After specifically being asked if “Battlefield 4” must be purchased through EA’s own Origin service to receive premium status, DICE responded by stating the following, "No, as long as your pre-order the game, you will have access to it." (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Hopefully the first DLC is free for preorders like Back to Karkand was with BF3.

i dont. that was my biggest gripe with premium for bf3.

I had to pay the same price for premium as everyone else but I already owned back to karkand due to my preorder.

I know thats nitpicking, but i still dont think it was right.

I hope they offer some kind of loyalty discount to bf3 premium members or something. thatd be cool.

Totally agree, especially when the BF3 Premium disc bundle went on sale. Granted I had been playing for some time prior, but still, add the original costs up...over $100 for a bundle you can buy for $40 on sale now!
Maybe they'll discount the BF4 Premium $$$ for those who are BF3 Premium members with a B4 preorder?! That'd be a nice gesture for being loyal.
I understand over time games will get discounted, but yes, something should be said about loyalty.

it surprises me that people think that you should pay for content you already own.

As a PS3 gamer who was pumped for BF3 and preordered and played for months while they actually released let alone refused to fix a broken party and mic system among other inexcusable things?

That was my last "DICE" game. Believe that.

Same here.I may pick up Bf4 if they release a premium edition.Plus Bf3 still has plenty of life in it.

So wait, pre orders get premium? Are we finally going back to those days when DLC was free (at least for PC, not sure about consoles) or close to that day?

i think pre-orders only get the first dlc.

Well that sucks. It looked to be otherwise.

So you HAVE to pre order to get premium? Doesn't sound right, what about those people that did not pre-order? I doubt they will refuse taking money to buy premium. They are EA after all.

Why can't dlc be free?
they will win more overall if is free ..

It keep users happy and it keep the game fresh and community together .
It give the full experience to every user who owns the game, and if that experience is good, those users will buy the next game..

When is not free.. it divide the user base and the user ask himself well next game I will not buy the dlc since my friends will not and what's the point having it if my friends don't .. many do not get the full experience and many will not care about the next game.

Dlc give you a quick extra cash but in the long term they lose more.
