Battlefield 3 End Game DLC & Patch Released

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 years ago
After eventually being dated, and then releasing a launch trailer (technically for the PS3 release at the time), many dedicated and battle-worn Battlefield 3 soldiers would find themselves struggling to contain their excitement for the newest DLC expansion; "End Game".

Available right now at no extra charge for Premium Members, the "End Game" DLC packs five new achievements for 120 Gamerscore, as well as new maps, new vehicles, and a whole ton of crazed opponents to take down. Players will drop from the sky thanks to the new gunship and ride the new dirt bikes like suicidal freaks as they try to escape with the flag in the newest game mode. Let's not forget the new Air Superiority mode as well, where players will be taking to the skies to see who can really dominate the playing field when it comes to nothing but showing off your Jet skills.

On top of the DLC being released today, a whopping 1.92GB update has been released, too. DICE "strongly advise(s) you download it" even though you will need to anyway to enjoy the intensity of the newly released expansion pack. I'm going to advise you download it as soon as possible, and link the "Multiplayer Update 6" right here. Now you can check out the details of what the update contains whilst the huge patch slowly but surely downloads to your console:

Game update change list: Tweaks and fixes
• TV-missile should no longer be able to blow up the helicopter shooting the missile.

• Fixed an issue where the proximity defense ability of the Mobile Artillery in Armored Kill does not kill enemies that are standing at a corner of the vehicle. Blast radius extended to 3 meters.

• Scavenger mode ticket count in Aftermath increased from 150 to 300 to create matches that last a bit longer.

• Fixed incorrect spelling on Aftermath dog tags.
