Electronic Arts is rumoured to be unveiling a new 'Battlefield Premium' service at E3 next month.

Set as a rival to Activision's 'Call of Duty: Elite' service, 'Battlefield Premium' will grant Battlefield 3 users new DLC and rewards through "content drops" throughout the year, unnamed sources told Battlefieldo.

"'Battlefield Premium' will land you a number of content drops with unique in-game items not available anywhere else," the source's description said.

"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 personalisation options."

The announcement and launch of the 'Battlefield Premium' service is said to be scheduled for June 4, the day EA will present its pre-E3 press conference.

The unknown source also mentions the 'Armored Kill' and 'End Game' expansions that are set to launch this autumn and winter respectively, as well as an unnamed fifth expansion for March 2013.

EA will release the infantry-focused 'Close Quarters' expansion in June, which will include four new maps, new weapons, assignments and unique dog tags.

Later this year EA will also release Medal of Honour: Warfighter for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on October 23 in North America and October 26 in Europe. It will be available three weeks ahead of Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on November 13.
