Battlefield 3 "shortcut" item unlocks go on sale

"The perfect way to gain some ground on the veterans online."

Battlefield 3 developer DICE has started selling "shortcut" item unlocks for the PlayStation 3 version of its best-selling FPS.

As revealed on the game's official blog, there are 10 different items available now either in-game or from the PlayStation Store. The following bundles are offered:

  • Kit Shortcut Bundle: Immediately unlocks all items unique to the four playable classes
  • Vehicle Shortcut Bundle: Immediately unlocks all items for all vehicles
  • The Ultimate Bundle: Immediately unlocks all items from all other available shortcut packs

"If you're new to the game, this is the perfect way to gain some ground on the veterans online," explained DICE.

"Or if you'd love to get some more air time in the jets but want to equip those AA missiles straight away, this is for you."

The feature is expected to roll-out to PC and Xbox 360 when the new update - which is out today on PS3 - goes live.
