Battlefield 3 players on the PS3 now have the ability to rent their own dedicated server. Your rules, your friends, your Battlefield. You’ll be able to rent servers for periods of one day (€1.49), seven days (€6.99), 30 days (€24.99), or 90 days (€59.99). Server owners can customise every details of the game, including banning users and giving friends VIP access.
The demand to be among the first PlayStation players to rent a Battlefield server will doubtlessly be huge. However, in order to ensure a stable experience for everyone, server capacity will be ramped up through the week. If you can’t rent a server today, you’ll have your chance over the course of a week.
Battlefield players will also be able to purchase Shortcut items from the PlayStation Store to get access to weapons previously available only to more experienced players. Each item unlocks all the weapons and/or equipment for vehicles, a specific class, or even the co-op weapons. You can also bundle the items together if you’re looking to unlock more at once for a deal. If you’re itching to get a jump start with a class you’ve been neglecting or just want to get your hands on some advanced weaponry, they’re the way to go.
