Rumor has it that Electronic Arts plans on announcing a subscription-based service for Battlefield 3 at their E3 press event next month. Battlefield Premium, as it's called, will give players access to extra content, including in-game items and extra customization options.

According to a description leaked by Battlefieldo"Battlefield Premium will land you a number of content drops with unique in-game items not available anywhere else." The description goes on to detail some of the early content to be released through the service:

"First out is the one-of-a-kind Premium knife and black dog tag, plus a set of soldier camos, weapon camos, dog tags and Assignments that will make sure you stand out and get more personalization options."

In addition to leaking Premium, the report features a roll-out schedule for the rest of the Battlefield 3 DLC, including a fifth, currently unannounced DLC pack. According to the report, the next DLC pack, "Close Quarters", will be released on June 12th, followed by the "Armored Kill" pack in the fall, and the "End Game" pack in time for the holidays. Finally, the supposed yet-to-be-announced DLC will arrive next March.

There will also be some sort of "bonus content" released this August, though the report didn't specify what to expect from the summer delivery.
