Battlefield 3: End Game, the final downloadable content pack for the game, is due out in March 2013. The official Battlefield site unveiled new information regarding the DLC, which is designed for “lethal high-speed warfare.”
The new content consists of four new maps made for close-quarter action and high speed combat. The End Game DLC for Battlefield 3 will also come with three new vehicles such as the dirt bike as well as additional new features.
Using speed and agility, gamers will be able to race through enemy lines on the dirt bike. Players can also choose to fight off aerial assaults with new lightweight AA vehicles. Capture the Flag mode is back and, much like the rest of the DLC, it encourages speed. Players with a different style of play will need to use strategy between attacking and defending. A new dropship in the air can turn the tables of a match quickly with the ability to rapidly deploy air drops of troop transports.
As usual, the End Game pack will come at no extra charge to players who purchased a membership to the Battlefield Premium subscription service. Gamers who still want to purchase a membership to Battlefield Premium can do so for $49.99. It will give players access to all five expansion packs for Battlefield 3 with early access to End Game in addition to other member benefits. Anyone who does not have access to Battlefield Premium will have to fork over some cash for End Game, although the price has not been announced.
Battlefield 3 is a first-person shooter from EA and Dice that released last year. The game uses the new Frostbite 2 engine from Dice. When it approached launch and shortly after it released, it was part of a heated competition with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 that divided players.
