Along with the game update patch, they have included Battlefield Premium. All the rumors were true.
As a Premium member you get 2 extra camos, dog tags already equippable. Black dog tags that you can unlock by assignments. You get a ABC-90 knife (more into that later). What most people have purchased this for is the access to ALL future DLCs that Battlefield will offer and not only that, you get 2 weeks early access to it. So while Close Quarters has not been released to the general public, people who have dished out the cash for premium can download it from the in game store now.
As a premium member you also get priority when in a que. Meaning if there are no other premium members you will be the first to go into a game. There will be things such as Double XP weekend events, and other premium events (currently no info on)
You also get premium benefits on Battlelog, You will get a BIG premium looking banner on your profile, with the premium symbol by your soldier. You also get features like saving battle reports, and deleting your stats.
Being this is the early stages of BF Premium you can be sure to expect more features to be added to the list.
More on the ABC-90 knife… So the asthetics are drastically different… looking like a box cutter. Though, personally I feel this ABC-90 does not grab people as easily, and increasing the amount of “slash-knifes” and lessening knife takedowns. There are no extra stats for this knife, it all counts as a normal knife kill.
As always, with a big patch full of tweaks and nerfs, this could cause some information to be inaccurate. Please take note.
