Battlefield 3 dishing out double XP this weekend

Dedicated Battlefield 3 players might have planned on playing this weekend, and following through with that intention will net you sweet bonus points. For this weekend only – starting at 12:01am PT on Saturday and lasting until 11:59pm PT on Sunday – all Battlefield 3 players will earn double their end-round score.

This promotion applies to both Premium and non-Premium members – if you plunked down the cash for Premium, you'll also find double the points awaiting you in Close Quarters. You'll find double points spread across every map and every game mode, so long as you're playing on a ranked server.
