Battlefield 3 Armored Kill DLC Release Dates Revealed
Battlefield 3 has had a slew of downloadable content planned for sometime now. With five content heavy packs planned to be released over more than a year’s time, Battlefield 3 players have a lot to look forward to. However, the upcoming pack Armored Kill has yet to have a release date attached to it, other than a vague release window of September 2012. Today, that has changed as DICE has announced the release dates for the upcoming pack.
Gamers subscribed to the Battlefield 3 Premium service will get the DLC first, as PlayStation 3 owners can buy the pack starting on September 4 while PC and Xbox 360 owners will get it a week later on September 11. Those who aren’t subscribed to the Premium service will have to wait until September 18 if you have a PS3 or until September 25 if you have a PC or 360. Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, it is likely that the DLC pack will cost $15 or 1200 Microsoft Points, just like the previous pack Close Quarters did.
The Battlefield DLC packs in the past have always been a great value and Armored Kill appears to be no different. The DLC pack will feature more vehicle focused gameplay in multiplayer and will include a new mode called Tank Superiority that will focused on tank combat. Four new maps, new unlocks and a variety of different land vehicles and aircrafts will also be available. The pack boasts that one of the new maps included is “the biggest map in Battlefield history.”
Those who don’t have Battlefield 3 yet and are looking to pick up the game should know that a special edition of sorts of the game entitled Battlefield 3: Premium Edition will also be released on September 11. It will include a membership to Battlefield 3 Premium as well as an initial 15 multiplayer weapons, gadgets, and vehicle upgrades to get you ready for all of the previously DLC and Armored Kill.
Armored Kill is the third DLC pack out of five planned packs. Next after Armored Kill is Aftermath, which will be released sometime this December and End Game, which has the vague release window of “Winter.” It’s great to see developers continue to support their games way after its initial launch and in such a prominent way.
