EA Addresses Battlefield 3 Pre-Order Issues

on June 14, 2011 4:00 PM

Gamers can often be a drastic bunch, particularly in this scenario, when many have threatened to boycott Battlefield 3 due to alleged ‘favoritism’ in the Physical Warfare pack, which gives exclusive weapons to those who pre-order the game.

In a post on the official Battlefield Blog, EA has addressed this among other issues:

Q: Will Physical Warfare Pack imbalance the game?
A: The three exclusive items in the Physical Warfare Pack were specifically chosen not to be overpowered or imbalance or break the game in any way.

There you have it, folks. Now there’s no real reason to boycott the game, although boycotting it in the first place over such a minor issue like this seems a little ridiculous.
