I already got my pre-order in, but if you have not yet you probably will want to after watching this trailer:
I pre-ordered on Origin since it gets you into the beta next month, but there are a number of different pre-order bonuses available depending on where you buy it:
- Gamestop is offering the Physical Warfare pack, which unlocks these weapons for use in multiplayer: DAO-12 Shotgun, Flash Suppressor, Type 88 LMG, and Flachette Ammo. In addition, Battlefield 3 Blog reports that PowerUp Rewards members will get a Prima strategy guide for free, as well.
- Amazon is offering an exclusive “Dog Tag Pack,” for use in multiplayer.
- Best Buy is offering the “SPECACT Kit,” a package that offers eight multiplayer weapons and uniform skins.
- EA’s Origin store is offering the Physical Warfare pack, bonus items for Battlefield Play4Free, and access to the Battlefield 3 open beta.
All pre-orders get access to the Back to Karkand expansion for free. Also, keep in mind that the game will not be available on Steam, and that all copies will have to activate on Origin.
