Battlefield 3: Armored Kill Summary
EA has had some questionable marketing links with weapons manufacturers in the past, which by the way they vow never to do again, but now they're going one step further; they won't license guns anymore.
No more royalty cheques from EA for using real-world weapons, but that doesn't mean they won't stop using them. They intend to wield the 'fair use' argument in court, if necessary.
EA and DICE's Battlefield 3 and Battlelog servers have come under attack by an external group, knocking out the online services that power the soon-to-be-replaced shooter. They confirmed the outages via twitter.
As of now the attack seems to have been thwarted with all platform servers back up and running. EA recently revealed 3.5 million have subscribed to Battlefield Premium.
Major Nelson has announced the upcoming Xbox Live Marketplace content coming to the service in the next two weeks. The content is highlighted by the Minecraft-like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim expansion Hearthfire today, while Armored Kill is coming to Battlefield Premium members next week, while the 4th Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC pack, Final Assault, arrives this week.
DICE has announced in the Battlefield Blog that the latest patch for Battlefield 3 will be released today in prep for the Armored Kill downloadable content. The DLC will also be launching today for Battlefield Premium PlayStation 3 gamers.
Electronic Arts has announced that the Armorerd Kill DLC for Battlefield 3 will be landing in September, and the date depends on what platform you're running it on and whether you have Battlefield Premium or not.
