Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

so what's the difference between both the battlefield editions? In gamestop here in Ireland they're selling BF4 for €59.99 and BF4 Premium edition for €65.99. For the purpose of my question lets label Battlefield 4 Premium edition "BF4P". So my question to you is what does BF4P have instead of the normal one? Does it just give me premium or does it even grant me that?

Are you sure its called premium edition? Atleast in origin those prices match to battlefield 4 and battlefield 4 : digital deluxe versions? –  TeraTon Nov 4 '13 at 14:25
    
Yes it was my fault, it wasn't premium. Premium was written on it. it was the delux edition. Case closed :L –  Charkz Nov 4 '13 at 16:34
    
you should change the question. Premium and Premium Editon are different things. What's Premium has been explained Adeese's answer. OTOH, if BF4 Premium Edition will be similar to BF3 Premium Edition, then most likely it will be released in some 9-10 months from now and will include base game + Premium subscription. –  vartec Nov 5 '13 at 17:23

Based on your prices and info from origin would seem like you're talking about normal battlefield 4 and battlefield 4 digital deluxe version.

Origin states that: "Digital Deluxe Edition also includes 3 Gold Battlepacks and a BF3 Vehicle Shortcut Bundle"

BUT on an another page in origin it states that you get the first expansion called china rising in the digital deluxe version and 3 gold battle packs.

battle packs are ingame unlockable items and vehicle shortcut bundle seems to unlock all the vehicle unlockables for you.

Battlefield 4 is the base game.

Battlefield 4 Premium is basically early access to all of the map packs that will be released. It includes the following:

  • Early access (2 weeks) to 5 map packs
  • Additional camos, paints, emblems, and dog tags
  • Priority position in server queues
  • Exclusive double XP events and weekly content updates
  • 12 battle packs

Additionally, if you buy it on a console, it will carry over to the next gen (Xbox 360 to Xbox One, or PS3 to PS4).

It is very important to note that Premium does not include the base game. –  3ventic Nov 3 '13 at 13:26
    
But, in the store there is a Battlefield 4 base game that says premium edition :/ –  Charkz Nov 3 '13 at 15:13

Battlefield 4 Premium Edition is the base game plus a Premium membership, as the banner on the cover reads. –  harbichidian Nov 3 '13 at 16:05

I can't find much on a Battlefield 4 Premium Edition, most of it refers to Battlefield 3. Origin does have a bundle to buy both the base game and Premium, though (origin.com/en-us/store/buy/battlefield-4/pc-download/base-game/…). –  Adeese Nov 3 '13 at 21:48

@harbichidian that's BF3. –  3ventic Nov 4 '13 at 12:11

Battlefield 4 is the base game - the campaign and the multiplayer aspect. You need this to play online.

Battlefield 4 Premium does the same sort of thing as Battlefield 3 Premium - exclusive dogtags, knife, etc, with battlepacks that gives things like XP boots of 100%, 50% and 25% and access to the DLC early.

Battlfield 4 Delux edition is the game, the first DLC, and a couple of battlepacks.

I just had a look on the GameStop site and they don't appear to mention a Premium Edition.

Where did you find premium edition? –  3ventic Nov 4 '13 at 12:10
    
Mistake, it's delux edition rather than premium. –  tombull89 Nov 4 '13 at 12:34

As with BF3, preordering just gives you the first DLC free. Maybe and I repeat MAYBE they will release a Premium-all-inclusive edition (Game+Premium) for a single purchase.

BUT when BF3 was released, Premium wasn't being offered alongside the game. It became announced and available a bit later, well not a bit, like 6 months I believe July or August, because initally the Back 2 Karkand DLC (remakes of previous Battlefield maps) was being offered as a bonus for preordering the game, nobody had idea that this premium offer would be available.

My guess is, an all inclusive edition would become available like 9 - 12 after game's release, to lure new customers. I'm gonna wait till next year (yes I have a lot of patience, and yes I don't care if everybody is miles ahead), to see if an all inclusive edition for $50-$60 becomes available and buy it at the same time as a PS4, that way, I would save between $60-$70!! (Beacuase if you buy it on current gen and want it in next gen as a digital version you pay $10 to upgrade.)
