EA has announced a new Limited Edition version of Battlefield 3.
It's probably unlikely that the full name – The Battlefield 3 Limited Edition: Physical Warfare Pack – bears more than a passing resemblance to a certain rival shooter that will be hitting the UK around the same time.
In the UK it will only be stocked by GAME and Gamestation.
The SKU will include additional in-game weapons such as the Type 88 LMG, SKS sniper rifle and the DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun. It also includes the Back to Karkand digital expansion, which bundles four maps from Battlefield 2.
“The buzz around Battlefield 3 is already incredible and we know that our customers are excited about what they’ve seen so far," head of PR at GAME and Gamestation Neil Ashurst stated.
"This exclusive offers more to Battlefield fans that ever offered before and we know that fans won’t be disappointed with it! We are delighted to offer this UK exclusive to all of our customers, creating an even better gaming experience."
MCV understands that the Battlefield 3 release date – which will be perilously close to that of Activision's Modern Warfare 3 – will be announced imminently.
