Hi BattleField guyz,

I m planning to purchase the BF3 Premium, but am afraid that BF4 will be released soon. In that case, I wud like to stay with normal BF3, and then purchase BF4.
But if BF4 is releasing a bit late, then I might jump for "Premium" for BF3 as well....

Any ideas about when BF4 is releasing, and shud I wait for BF4 or go with the BF3 Premium????

I think beta is coming out October 2013, so I guess it's safe to assume BF4 won't be here till 2014.

BF4 is probably supposed to release late 2013/ early 2014. Nothing official yet, just a rumor. From my experience, I wish I would NOT have bought Premium. Close Quarters and Armored Kill weren't good as I thought they were going to be in my opinion. I would stay with just the normal version of BF3. If you get bored of that then, the only DLC's that have been amazing are Back To Karkand and Aftermath, so I would definitely pick one of those up. Aftermath being my first choice cause it just came out and tons of people are enjoying it.

Just get it, the premium edition of BF3 is the same price as a new game, you're saving money regardless.
"Buy our new DLC for BF3 called BF4!!! Now at the price of 60 dollars pre-order now!"-EA

this is the question im fearing about! as you can see, i don't have any dlc. so i think is worth it buy premium.
but, when BF4 is release, im afraid BF3 server will vacant and my premium become useless or even worst!! EA close the server FOR GOOD so BF3 player will migrate to BF4.

I think that you could buy the Premium as it will still take one year or more until they roll BF4 out.
But yeah, I just wish that Premium members get access to some kind of Beta.

I am sure with EA they will throw BF4 premium out.
Show me the Blue light. I need to relax. ERROR Could not join server (1) Thank you dice/ea. You make my life complete. Join CTE to nerf everything. On it.

its gonna be almost a year b4 the beta; hells yeah get the premium; the cqc is good for warming up like tdm; but all game types; ak is ok; b2k is a must have and so is aftermath imo. i have yet to really play much cqc; but with almost a year left im sure i will learn those maps also. you owe it 2 urself to play the expansions(b2k and am 4 sure) cq if u like cod; and ak if you like running a mile between flags..lol. if you have 2 pick one get B2K 4 more weapons; AM if u want the xbow. just have fun !!
pay no attention to the incessant ramblings above

Who cares if it comes with bf3 premium ? Why would you wait for BF4 to get BF3 premium. BF3 premium is extra content for the game we've got now !

If Dice are doing their job properly, BF4 should be a better game than BF3. They've now done all the hard work on the terrain, view-distance, animation, graphics in general, and audio. So with BF4 they should be free to fix a lot of the missing features and issues (server-side hit-detection, VOIP, squads, etc) and everyone should want to migrate to it anyway.

Any good BF2/3 maps should (and probably will) be translated to BF4 eventually, like they did with Back To Karkand, and Wake throughout the series. So we will get those great maps as part of the BF4 package, I would hope. I just wish they would bring some more of the BF2 maps over like Kubra Dam and Dragon Valley, but I suspect Dice are scared of those maps because they are too awesome for the style-engine in BF3.

It'll come out in like 10-12 months. Getting premium is safe.

Well after getting shafted and buying BF3 when it first came out then having to fork out more cash for DLC, I'm gonna hold out buying BF4 when it comes out and wait for the BF4 premium and save money. They should give all owners of BF3 free DLC not just the Premium pricks. We are the hardcore players bought it as soon as it released and how does EA show how they fell about us coughing up $60 to $70 bucks, they make us pay more for DLC and give it away for free to the Premium players....never gonna buy any EA game on the release date, gonna wait from now on.
