Getting ready for Battlefield 3: Armored Kill


  • Getting Ready For Battlefield 3: Armored Kill

    June brought us the second Expansion Pack of Battlefield 3: Close Quarters where the focus is on fast paced infantry combat with tight tactical squad play. With smaller spaces and a vertical layout, Close Quarters offered fast-moving up close and personal tactical teamwork. But the next Expansion Pack for Battlefield 3 promises something very different.

    Armored Kill, the 3rd Expansion Pack for Battlefield 3 is bringing large battlefields for an all-out vehicle assault. Armored Kill features several new vehicles such as tanks, mobile artillery, tank destroyers, ATVs and an AC-130 gunship. It also includes the biggest map in Battlefield history as well as a new game mode: Tank Superiority.

    Armored Kill

    In Tank Superiority the objective is to control a single flag, guaranteeing fierce combat between between main battle tanks, gunships, and tank destroyers. Groups of armor working together will seek to to engage and destroy the enemy as engineers scramble to keep their team alive.

    The Expansion Pack will include a total of four maps and multiple game modes for each, the four new maps are:

    Alborz Mountain
    Adjacent to Damavand Peak is the snow covered Alborz Mountain.

    Bandar Desert
    The largest map in Battlefield with a AC-130 gunship circling overhead!

    Armored Shield
    Armored shield is a summer time map set in a large field on the outskirts of Sanoy, Russia.

    Death Valley
    Bringing night time combat in a mountain setting.

    Release Date
    Armored Kill is scheduled for a September 11 release for Premium Members, with the standalone Expansion Pack being released two weeks later. Tactical Gamer will support Armored Kill on day one and you expect to see the new maps in a variety of game modes on our servers shortly after launch.

    September 11 will also bring Battlefield Premium Edition which will include the base game, a Premium Membership with all Expansion Packs, and a multi-player welcome kit which unlocks several weapons and vehicle upgrades. The bundle priced at $69.99 provides great value for anyone who hasn't yet taken the leap into BF3 and wants to have all the Expansion Packs available to them.

  • Urgent Announcement Regarding Tactical Gamer
    by Apophis
    Tactical Gamer has been through many incarnations over the years. The community was originally built back in 1996 and has been through a couple re-brandings over the past 24 years. We had some fantastic times with the original Quake 2 LMCTF environment and really started to solidify the purpose of the community with the launch of the original Counter-Strike. We’ve had a fantastic run over the years but all good things must come to an end.

    It brings me no pleasure to announce that Tactical Gamer will be ceasing operations on February 29th, 2020. There are a multitude of reasons why, but suffice it to say that the gaming landscape has changed drastically and brought us to an era where people have been pulled away due to different priorities in life and that has affected our ability to manage the community in a manner consistent with its founding purpose. For those of you who have helped the community survive through the Supporting Member program, I can’t thank you enough. Without you this dream would have died many years ago.

    Next Steps - For those of you with Supporting Memberships, please use the opportunity over the next month to log into your PayPal accounts and cease payments to Tactical Gamer. I am going to attempt to do a bulk-cancellation on the 29th of February, but I’m not sure how well that is going to work. You will also want to make sure to download any files or content you have in your web hosting accounts (if you have taken advantage of that in the past) as well as any email you have on our systems that you want to keep. I am going to continue to renew the domain registration, although what I do with it and where I point it has yet to be determined.

    In closing, I want to thank everyone for over two decades of great gaming and especially thank those that have taken on the relatively thankless Site/Community/Game Officer roles and everything you’ve done to help keep the community on track.

    All the best...
