Armored Kill will see a range of new vehicles added to the game, with new tanks, jets, ATV’s, helicopters and mobile artillery units all making the cut. Considering the amount of ground one can cover with a vehicle, the map sizes will be greater than one’s in other expansions. With that said, DICE will add the biggest map in Battlefield history to the pack, just showing how powerful the Frostbite 2.0 engine really is.

Armored Kill and Close Quarters will both feature at E3, with playable versions available, so keep your eyes out for that. We also have the details of the Battlefield Premium service to look forward too, with the expansion packs and subscription service all being explained, gamer’s will have a better sense of what their hard-earned cash is going towards.

All together Electronic Arts are in for the long run with downloadable content, but will it keep people interested? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

When not fighting crime, I dabble in the art of online journalism. Alright, maybe it's not as exciting as headbutting everyday felons like a modern Bruce Wayne, but I need something that doesn't involve bludgeoning something. Get my kicks playing on a fat 80gb PS3, really need an upgrade......and a shave.
