Battlefield 3 Will Have "Years Worth of Unlocks"

The military plays so easily into the leveling system we have in place for video games. Major, General, Sergeant. I have no f***ing clue what each of these mean, but I know that I'm really close to become a level 80 Major General Sergeant so I'd better keep playing.
That's the ultimate purpose of these built-up multiplayer modes. Give players a reason for one more round, keep them drip-fed on new content, and ultimately prevent them from having to buy the competition's game. Battlefield 3 is set to make sure you'll have plenty to do in online multiplayer.
Players will be able to earn hardware to customize their class, including underbarrel grenade launchers and vehicle unlocks. Every kill will also tally up to medals, ribbons, and service stars to display whether you're a team player or not (and you damn well better be). Specific ribbons will call out how many people you healed in a game or how many you killed with a helicopter or jet. The per-match ribbons will add up to medals calling out how many times you've earned a specific ribbon or how long you've played for a specific team.
As for customizing your loadout with your unlocked equipment:
Give. Me. NOW.
