Battlefield 3: Premium has promised a lot of things in its infancy. One of those things that they promised were premium only special events like double XP weekends. Today we get news that the very first event is going to take place this weekend. This follows last weekends double XP event that was open to everyone onwhat was more than likely a tease to get more people to purchase the Battlefield 3: Premium.
To get this double XP weekend all you have to do is go to the in game store and purchase the premium package. Then go download "Close Quarters" and enjoy the chaos that Battlefield 3 is becoming. Make sure that if you do decide to purchase Premium that you do it through the in game store and not the PSN store. There have been several reports of people having to pay twice for the DLC when bought through the store.
