Players not happy with the extras DICE are providing.
OVER 1130 players have signed an online petition asking both DICE, the development studio behind the Battlefield franchise, and Electronic Arts opposing the August Premium Content Drop, deeming it insignificant.
The antipodal stance for the August drop, which contains a premium video showcasing Armored Kill, the upcoming expansion pack for Battlefield 3, as well as a digital artwork book and a premium competition, is loud in the comments for the August drop announcement on Battlelog.
"This is suck (sic)," one Battlelog user, iCentipede, comments on the announcement, "I wish I didn't buy premium I have been waiting all this month for a video and a booklet your kidding me right DICE ? (sic) I expected a camo for the rest of the weapons."
Battlefield 3's Premium services provides purchasers access to all Expansion Packs for the game already released and coming in the future and 2 weeks earlier than the general public who purchase the content à-la-carte.
The petition, started by Karl Klatt of Canada, asks for EA and DICE to "rectify the situation for the Premium users who have spent quite alot (sic) of money on the Battlefield 3 series" and has over 1000 signatures. The petition asks for 1500. At this rate, the petition might just get there.
UPDATE: A spokesperson for EA Australia has responded and said that there are no comments to provide at this stage.
