With the release of Battlefield Hardline just a little more than two weeks away, Visceral Games today announced their exclusive Battlefield Hardline Premium program. Veterans of Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 will be familiar with the promotion, while new players to the franchise may know it as a season pass, something commonly offered up by other titles.

Whereas previous Battlefield games have included all planned multi-player expansions, Battlepacks, and exclusive in-game customization options with the premium service, this year things will be bumped up a notch. Battlefield Hardline will also offer Legendary Status, as well as the all-new Gun Bench.
