New vehicles of Battlefield 3: Armored Kill
We already know that Battlefield Premium members now have access to Close Quarters DLC, but fans are already looking ahead to the new piece of content later in the year, which is called Battlefield 3: Armored Kill and comes with five new types of vehicles. These will include ATVs, destroyers, mobile artillery and tanks.
The map is larger than we have seen before, which does help when you have more vehicles at your disposal, just try patrolling the Bandar Desert on foot, it would be your worst nightmare in such a harsh environment. There would have been times when you would have been left at a base because you would not want to walk around like a lone wolf, so having a few new vehicle types is a great shot in the arm for BF3.
We’re told that having Close-Quarters and Armored Kill is a great mix for players who like either small maps where things can get a bit heavy or a large map for those gamers who like to be a little more tactical (see screenshots here). The Armored Kill DLC for BF3 will be released in September and will cost $15 for those with an Xbox, PS3 or PC, again those with a PlayStation 3 will enjoy access to this new content a week before Xbox Live and Origin.
Armored Kill is all about the vehicles and the sheer scale of the maps and it’s nice to see that this DLC helps to make this shooter stand out against rival shooters, it’s good that the developers are playing to the strengths of the game – just hope that BF3 is not forgotten about come September when there will be new shooters coming out near that time?
EA are not going to give up without a fight though because there are another two new DLCs to add to the list, Aftermath in December and End Game in March 2013, with the latter finally bringing motorcycles to Battlefield. Will BF3 still be able to hold its own against new shooters coming to the gaming community?
