Today during our time at EA we had a chance to sit down and cause some heavy damage in the next expansion for Battlefield 3 titled Armored Kill. Armored Kill is all about vehicles and large-scale destruction. With Armored Kill you get a handful of new vehicles both small and large. But you also get some of the biggest maps ever created by DICE for the Battlefield universe.
Playing conquest on the expansions largest map it became quickly clear that getting out of a vehicle would cause you to have a really really long trek to the action. The large-scale just requires you to stay in vehicles until you are right up close to the capture points. But even then you’ll want to watch out as you’ll quickly find yourself surrounded by opponents in heavy machines. Unlike the current maps there are more than enough vehicles for your entire team to be rolling on the ground or taking to the air.
I was really impressed with the expansion for Battlefield 3, Armored Kill. Vehicle action is what really sets BF3 apart in the shooter crowd and Armored Kill does a great job showcasing the games vehicular strengths. Look for Armored Kill in September and don’t forget you can get is 2 weeks early by purchasing Battlefield 3 Premium for $49.99, which give you all 5 DLC packs and will save you $25 compared to purchasing each DLC packs separately.
