DICE has announced that Armored Kill, the second of three planned downloadable content packages for Battlefield 3, will arrive sometime in September 2012. It was previously slated to release "in the autumn".
In March, DICE revealed plans to release three add-on for Battlefield 3 starting this June with Close Quarters which will be released one week early on PS3 and include 10 new weapons and four new maps all themed around close quarter combat.
Armored Kill will be the second DLC released and is said to feature all-out vehicle warfare with new tanks, ATV's, and mobile artillery. It will also contain the largest map ever seen in a Battlefield game.
