While double XP has been a standard promotion for most online shooters, Battlefield 3 has yet to participate. That changes this weekend, with the game's first-ever double XP weekend.

Beginning tonight at 12:01AM PST and continuing through Sunday, May 13 at 11:59PM PST, everyone will earn double XP "across all maps and modes."

Your bonus XP will be reflected at the end of each match, where it will appear as "additional points." According to EA, double XP will be accrued "across all ranked servers and matches." The XP boost should get you back in shape for Battlefield 3's three upcoming expansion packs. Close Quarters will be available in June, while two more will ship by year's end.

      Are the Nielsen Ratings people watching this weekend? Otherwise, what's the point? This isn't a radio show.

      Great news for one of my friends who just got the game. Better guns faster. I hit rank 45 recently. That's tops for the most part?

      My friend just got the game and this will get him the better guns faster. I still rock the M416 and love it.

      This is sweet. Weird that it doesn't start on Friday night like most double xp weekends. I'll definitely be asleep by 3 am EST. :P

      I'd rather they announce that Close Quarters DLC is a joke and they're really releasing Armored Kill in June.

      So does this mean the extra xp only goes toward your ranks or will it help you unlock weapons/attachments/vehicle upgrades too?
