Back when EA announced Battlefield Premium during E3 this year, we wasn’t sold. It wasn’t that we didn’t consider it was a good idea, since it is, though a calm didn’t seem there. They showed Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, that we had already seen behind during GDC, and all else was still classified. It didn’t make many sense, and we left reduction meddlesome than ever. That feeling has stranded with me until this week, when we got a initial full demeanour during gameplay of a subsequent Battlefield 3 DLC recover Armored Kill.
It’s flattering transparent that Battlefield Premium was a greeting to a furious success of Call of Duty: Elite, though it also shouldn’t have taken 8 months after recover for EA to uncover us something new. Sure, they expelled Back to Karkand, though that container was accessible good before Battlefield Premium was even announced. That isn’t unequivocally impressive to a dedicated Battlefield fans (the ones Premium is designed for) who had already purchased that DLC pack; in a way, they were punished for being early supporters.
Close Quarters is accessible now and is substantially a initial pardonable reason to squeeze Battlefield Premium. If you’re already going to be spending $15 and we suffer Battlefield 3 so many that you’re substantially going to squeeze a other 3 DLC packs anyway, it creates clarity to dump $50 on Battlefield Premium. But while Close Quarters delivered some-more Battlefield 3 content, it doesn’t unequivocally offer any new experiences. It’s all parsimonious maps though any vehicles; that isn’t what Battlefield is about, and it fails to compute a Battlefield 3 multiplayer diversion from Call of Duty.
If we agree, get hype: EA has only suggested a full gameplay trailer of a many engaging DLC for Battlefield 3 yet, Armored Kill. It’s Battlefield 3 in a many pristine form: all-out vehicular warfare. When Armored Kill hits in September, players will have entrance to 20 all-new vehicles and an airborne gunship. This isn’t something that could be achieved on a normal Battlefield 3 map either, so Armored Kill comes with a outrageous new map, a biggest in Battlefield history. Thinking about how vast many of a maps are already, we can’t design them removing many bigger, so that teaser has me utterly excited.
It’s tough to know many from a trailer, though this DLC is clearly targeted during hardcore Battlefield 3 fans. The trailer is put together good and gives off a clever vibe of Bad Company 2, that is always a good thing. While accurate dates haven’t been announced yet, Armored Kill will be accessible to Battlefield 3 Premium Members dual weeks before it is accessible to a rest of a open in September. That headstart alone competence be value a Battlefield Premium subscription to some players, and I’m intensely vehement to get my hands on Armored Kill and sleet down bullets from above.
