If you were previously unsure as to whether to buy the upcoming Battlefield Premium pack, a leaked trailer that has gone online ahead of EA’s E3 keynote should give you the final push over the edge that you need.
In other words – we have a feeling that everyone is going to be buying this. It may be priced at the same price of a full game and it may already include the Back to Karkand pack that most of you already have, but the incentive of owning this content two weeks early before everyone else is probably too good to miss.
The trailer gives a brief preview of the new DLC packs that will be included in Battlefield Premium, but most importantly – the very first look at some gameplay from Armored Kill which is out in September. DICE has said that 10 new weapons will be coming in this expansion alone and if you study the trailer closely, we may have had the confirmation of the exciting AC-130 spectre gunship.
Most of you will already know about this plane from Call of Duty, but for those who don’t the plane has been given a nickname of ‘Angel of Death’ – due to its devastating capabilities. Despite being an able people carrier, the plane is also equipped with a series of weaponry to take out targets on the ground. At the moment, there’s no guarantee that this is indeed the AC130, as some of you are already saying that it still could be the C130, which is more of a transport-orientated type of plane.
Then again, we already have the scout helicopter and Venom / Kasatka choppers which are primarily used for their transport capabilities, so the AC130 would be a great addition to BF3 and a great alternative to the jets. We’ve included the video trailer below, but don’t be surprised if it gets removed quickly. If it does go down, then simply do a YouTube search and you should find a new upload there.
EA certainly knows how to build up anticipation for upcoming content, and this really is a great preview trailer to showcase Battlefield 3 Premium. Will you be paying $50 for this on June 4th? We certainly will be, for the early access to Armored Kill alone. Let’s hope that we get confirmation of the AC-130 at E3.
On a side note – what other vehicles have you possibly spotted in the trailer?
