Getting ready for Armored Kill

Post by woowoo » Fri Aug 17, 2012 6:24 am

So we have the Armored Kill (AK) DLC coming in September.

While Close Quarters was "designed" for 18 slots my guess is those huge AK maps are really designed for 64 slots. But we also have the new Tank Superiority mode. I wonder what number of slots its designed for?

Any thoughts?

I haven't seen any information released on this yet, but I would imagine 64 slots.

Below is a FAQ I saw. I still don't know how many slots we should have for Tank Superiority mode.

What is Battlefield 3: Armored Kill?
Armored Kill is the third themed expansion pack for Battlefield 3, upping the ante with a slew of new options for vehicular mayhem, featuring new drivable tanks, ATVs, mobile artillery, and more. Armored Kill is also the proud home of the “biggest map in Battlefield history,” as well as the exciting new game mode, Tank Superiority.

What is Tank Superiority?
Tank Superiority will find two tank platoons up against each other as they fight tooth-and-nail for control of the single flag on the map. Expect massive tank battles and test your skills in the biggest land battle ever seen in Battlefield 3.

When is Battlefield 3: Armored Kill available?
Battlefield 3 players will have to wait until September 2012 to get in on the vehicular action. Stay tuned for specific release dates.

How much will Battlefield 3: Armored Kill cost?
You’ll be able to find Battlefield 3: Armored Kill for sale at $14.99 / €14.99 / 1,200 Microsoft Points.

Will Armored Kill maps have separate rotations from the base game maps?
No. All Battlefield 3 base game and expansion pack maps can be mixed into the same rotation. It is up to the server administrator to set what maps he/she wants to include.

What happens if I join a server that has a mix of base game maps and expansion pack maps, and I don’t have that particular expansion?
You will still be able to join the server, but when a map from that expansion pack loads, you will be disconnected from the server.

Content included in Armored Kill Expansion:
Game Modes: Tank Superiority
Maps: Death Valley; Bandar Desert; Armored Shield; Alborz Mountains
Vehicles: HIMARS H142 (US Artillery Vehicle); BM-23 (Russian Artillery Vehicle); M1128(US Tank Destroyer); 2S25 Sprut-SD (Russian Tank Destroyer); ATV (Transport Vehicle); AC130 (Gunship)

Terribly sorry but... Are all of the Armored Kill resources included in our current server version (R29) or will there be an update later tonight/tomorrow morning?

The AK patch was already rolled out to our customers :)


Servers should be all set, just need to wait on Dice/EA to release the client side stuff.

EA/DICE are so sad.
Give a release date and can't even keep that.
