In a tweet earlier today, the guys over at DICE announced that the Physical Warfare Pack would be unlocked later in the year for all Battlefield 3 fans. Turns out the only difference is that those who pre-order the game will get it earlier.
The full explanation, in a Battlefield 3 blog, admits that some misunderstandings were expected over the reservation bonus, but explains that the DICE employees “…want to give [customers] something special for pre-ordering, as pre-ordering is basically your way of saying you believe in DICE and Battlefield 3”.
This announcement comes in the wake of a boycott of Battlefield 3 made by angry fans when the bonus pre-order content was announce. EA has already made a statement in response to the boycott and now DICE has given their explanation as well.
