Executive producer Patrick Bach revealed that the welcome pack will include a host of in-game upgrades, such as bonus weapons, to help players immerse themselves in the online modes.

"Since launch, over 15 million people worldwide have enjoyed the thrill of Battlefield, and with the release of Battlefield 3 Premium Edition the community is set to surge once again," said Bach.

"Packing a ton of gameplay at an incredible price, there has never been a better time to jump in and see what all the fun is about. We look forward to seeing some new faces on the battlefield."

Battlefield 3 will receive the 'Armored Kill' expansion next month, and Premium owners will be the first to receive it on September 4.

This will be followed by the 'Aftermath' pack in December, which will add modified military and civilian vehicles to the game, and 'End Game' in March 2013.

Battlefield 3 Premium Edition is released in September.
