Battlefield 3 Armored Kill DLC deploys Sept. 4

Premium subscribers on PS3 get first access to third expansion pack to modern-day shooter next week; coming later in the month to Xbox 360 and PC users.

by

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.

PS3 Premium players get a head start on the Armored Kill DLC.

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.

These exclusivity release date deals make me sick. The content is obviously ready to be released on all platforms on sept 4th but collects dust for another couple weeks because you or a hardware company didn't pay EA extra money. But hey, it's only a couple weeks, so not a big deal to wait for -- also not a big deal to pay extra money for. Double edged sword.

Not that hard to figure out the release date. 1st Week of the month for PS3 with Premium. It's always Tuesdays! Why? Don't know, don't care!

2nd Week for PC & 360 with Premium. 3rd Week PS3 without Premium. 4th Week PC&360 without Premium. Aftermath is the same date ( December 4th) just different month. End game starts March 5th and the cycle repeats itself. Don't forget about MOH warfighter and it's chances of Premium art work, hd pictures and weapon skins for weapons no one uses except the PKP. Thank you Bye Bye.

I don't play BF3 much anymore, but if this is awesome I may boot up again. We'll see.

I'll defiantly be picking this DLC up since Large Maps + emphasis on tanks sounds kick ass

So people with no premium can't buy the DLC at the same time as the others?  Nice job fracturing the community.  Good job Dice!

So those bright people who paid the premium subs still have only 2 dlc for their 50$ Wow! Nice scam.

Mr. Mcinnis isn't comfortable in his own skin, and frankly it's a little uncomfortable to watch. The "Tanks but no tanks" joke stood on its own, it was awkward that he tried to explain the pun.

I am trading mine in... to get the Premium edition. 20 bucks for the game and 50 for the Premium content? It seems cheap, but it is a deal folks. think about it, The game now has been out for a year and the game (standard edition) should be $20-30. So, why not? Call me a lemming, but I would rather go out and trade this in at AMAZON OR BEST BUY, NOT GAMESTOP and get a few bucks more and spend hopefully 50 bucks. Decent tradeoff, right?

Who gives a f***, I just uninstalled Battlefield 3 and its waste of space origin, I never got to play online with it because of that f***in' thing.

 

If Battlefield 4 has a microbe to do with origin I hope it rots in a pool of vomit, s**t & p**s.

 

EA games used to be good back in the days of Need for Speed Underground and Freedom Fighters etc, a** holes had to ruin a good thing.

I'm excited but I'm not looking forward to ps3 matches on huge maps with only 24 players. Also, everyone should prepare for every single server to say things like "C130 for admins / clans only" "Using C130= ban" and "No mobile artillery or kick"

 @spikepigeo If im not wrong, PS3 players get it a week early because EA promised them bf1943 for free with i dont remember what thing (maybe bf3) and they didnt keep their promise, so its probably not what you think it is

 @jagcivtec They have plenty of bots to plain online. Aimbots, killbots, IOD bots, teleportbots. Plenty of hackbots and stuff. ;)

 @STrugglingFool I know you don't care but I thought I would just let you know they release on Tuesdays because that's typically when big retailers like Walmart release the stock they received the previous Monday or weekend. Good call on the roll out of the DLC's. I'll remember that for Aftermath.

 @B-boy bloody hell, COD is better in campain, with new DLC packs for special ops mode what BF3 dont have. MW player dont know how drive a tank, and BF player dont know how have real skills.

 @nurnberg um... this is not for folks who bought premium, idiot. it is for people who want to buy it with everything. seriously, man. get a grip, and a life.

 @nurnberg Of course not, stop being such a kid. Every non-premium player is like that. Not only do they have a superiority complex (which is funny since youd think its the otherway around) they cry and whine about small features that dont really matter that much. Their stubborn attitude makes buying premium later even more difficult since then its not really worth it anymore. Oh the stupidity of man.

 @ZoTrAcK for my buddy who did NOT recieve karkand with his purchase of the game. it has already paid for itself. When he purchases premium next week, he will recieve $45 worth of content right away, not to mention much earlier than I will since I will not purchase premium, as I already have Karkand and dislike Close Quarters. Then he will get another $30 worth of content; both times much earlier than I will. So, yeah hes getting it for $25 cheaper dude.

 @gmromero Yeah the sad thing about these games is that the admins usually ban everything they suck with and cant defend (even though common sense can get you by the defending thing) so they ban everything and think they are all that when they do well when the reality is they handicapped the game for themselves :)

 @supa_stud  @cboye18 It was better in destruction in what object you could destroy.  The detail in the destruction when something goes BOOM has been ramped up completely.  particle effects are outstanding.  It just depends on what you want out of the destruction in the game i guess.  i agree with the points from people arguing you can more stuff up in BC but to say its been toned down is a hard arguement IMO.  i think voip sucks just as bad to tell you the truth lol

 @Aria1368  @Johny_47 hes right about that so you should let him rant its the truth but no one cares.Thats whats messed up about this world.

 @Johny_47  @chilly-chill  @Aria1368  @JIMDOG4442002 I have friends who are avid BF3 players and switched from console to PC and love it even more.  Just because orgin sucks (which it does) does not mean the game is garbage.. nice try though troll.

 @chilly-chill  @Aria1368 I am calm... I just have strong opinions / views with alot of things, this is one of those things.

 

And @JIMDOG4442002 thanks and yes it is messed up, if more people shared their honest opinion about how f***ed up origin is, maybe EA or Dice would get off their lazy ar**es and fix it =P
