Battlefield 3's expansion packs have been temporarily reduced to 600 MS Points (£5.14) each on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, offering a 50 per cent saving on the usual price.

All five expansion packs are included in the offer, including the latest pack Battlefield 3: End Game, while Battlefield 3 Premium, which includes all five packs and bonus extras, has been reduced to 2800 MSP (£23.99).

Each pack normally costs 1200 MSP, with Premium usually demanding 4000 MSP.

The sale is expected to last until May 20, 2013.

The reduction will likely be an effort to maximise sales on DLC prior to Battlefield 4's release later this year.

The game is expected to go on sale in October.
