DICE has revealed that PS3 owners will get "all full-blown expansion packs" for Battlefield 3 a week early.
PS3's timed exclusive DLC will kick off with the release of the game's first expansion pack, Back to Karkand, later this year.
DICE junior product manager Tommy Rydling said on the PlayStation Blog: "You'll be happy to know that, starting with our first expansion pack Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand, all full-blown upcoming expansion packs for the game will appear one week early exclusively on PlayStation 3!"
EA announced earlier this week that a Battlefield 3 multiplayer beta will be open to all PS3, Xbox 360 and PC players from September 29, and Rydling added that it will run until October 10.
Gamers who pre-order the digital PC version of DICE's shooter from Origin and all customers that pre-ordered the limited edition of Medal of Honor will be granted early access from September 27.
