EA has announced the release date for the Battlefield 3: Armored Kill update, but it’s not a clear-cut issue. You could see it as soon as September 4 or as late as September 25, depending on your platform of choice and membership status.
As most know, EA hosts a special Battlefield 3 premium membership, which costs $49.99. If you’ve sprung for the service and you’re playing on PlayStation 3, you’ll have access to the download on September 4. PC and Xbox 360 players will be able to dig in a week later, on September 11. All premium members receive the Armored Kill update at no extra cost, but if the premium service is not your thing you can pick up the Armored Kill content on PS3 on the 18th, with the PC and Xbox 360 versions launching on the 25th. It will be stand-alone priced at $14.99/1,200 Microsoft Points.
If you haven’t yet picked up the game, you may wish to delay until September 11. That’s when the Battlefield 3: Premium Edition is due. It will include the full game, a premium membership, and additional unlocks to help get new players up to speed, and it’ll street at $69.99.
You know the drill. Keep both eyes on GU for all the latest.
