Battlefield 3 will add the Armored Kill downloadable expansion next week, coming to PlayStation 3 Battlefield Premium subscribers on September 4. Xbox 360 and PC Premium users will be able to download the add-on a week later on September 11, with subsequent releases for all PS3 users on September 18, and all Xbox 360 and PC players on September 25.
Armored Kill is Battlefield 3's third of five planned expansions. It follows Back to Karkand and Close Quarters, and precedes Aftermath and Endgame, which are slated to arrive later this year. Armored Kill brings four new maps, including the "biggest map in Battlefield history."
Additionally, Armored Kill adds new vehicles and a Tank Superiority game mode. This tank-themed "king of the hill" mode has players battling for a central capture point and is discussed by GameSpot editors in greater depth in the video embedded below.
All Battlefield 3 expansions are included with a $50 Battlefield Premium subscription, as well as the $70 Battlefield 3 Premium Edition, which hits next month.
