For Battlefield 3, a new kind of weekend event is set to hit the title. This weekend, gamers on Battlefield 3 will be able to earn double XP in their multiplayer matches.
It’s a little different from what fans of the first-person genre may have grown accustomed to, however. Instead of the event starting today and rolling through early Monday morning, it’ll be receiving a slightly different timeframe. EA has stated that the double XP weekend will start May 12th at 3:01 AM and last through May 14th at 3:01 AM.
While we’re happy to see EA adopt the philosophy of double XP weekends, we would have opted for a time running from early Friday through the early hours of Monday morning. However, it’s a great chance for Battlefield 3 fans to climb through a few extra ranks during their weekend.
