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.

  • TG is going to Tanoa - Apex of ArmA 3 begins July 11
    Apex DLC is Coming To TG Servers

    Get ready for the ride to the pinnacle of ArmA 3. Bohemia Interactive is releasing their latest achievement on July 11th featuring a Pacific jungle island Tanoa, a plethora of new features and a rich and long awaited set of assets in the ArmA tradition. will be hosting this content upon release. We will be churning out missions immediately!

    Tanoa alone is impressive, with 5 airports, its single main island, four minor islands and a bunch of “mini” islands it’s set to expand the ArmA empire to include much more land/sea battle capabilities and add elements of small island south pacific tropical exotic-ness to the ArmA franchise.

    Covering over 100 square Kilometers (about one third of the original ArmA Altis map) it is a tropical island paradise. Set in an idyllic setting it’s not militarized like Stratis, Altis or many other maps and this one is truly a clear slate for scenarios. With that said it’s not without its history, exploited for its rich mining productivity the island has been industrialized and ravaged for what looks like decades. There is a new faction, "The Syndikat", a local criminal organization with deep roots on Tanoa. This initial primary faction is made up of armed thugs and ex-paramilitaries, and is involved in many illicit operations throughout the region. Armed with mostly ‘classic’ weaponry such as AKs, RPGs, and 9 mm pistols their knowledge of the island and local hiding spots will make them a formidable enemy when the DLC is released.

  • Exciting CitizenCon Reveals and How Trolls Helped Push the Community Over 1M Backers

    Some People Live Under Bridges

    There has long been a small but ongoing undercurrent of Star Citizen criticism in some corners of the internet, mostly consisting of (IMO, baseless) accusations of "vaporware", "scam", etc. Apparently, in at least one case (Derek Smart) they have gotten so bad recently that Chris Roberts felt the need to publicly reply. Prior to this, I had never even heard of Derek Smart, but it didn't take me much research to find out that the guy is basically a professional troll. Apparently, once upon a time he had developed a couple games, that many people panned as unfinished and pretty bad in general. So, unable to achieve success on his own, he has apparently turned to latching onto more successful projects in a sad attempt at keeping his own name relevant. And seeing as how I had never heard of him prior to this drama, I suppose successful troll is successful. Although I really can't get my head around why anyone would set out to make that sort of name for themselves.
