While details are still slim regarding Battlefield 3‘s final piece of downloadable content, appropriately titled End Game, a new image revealed during Electronic Arts‘ Summer Showcase has tipped us off to one of the DLC’s new vehicular additions. In the past, vehicle-based combat in DICE‘s warzones has been relegated to tanks, armored vehicles, and a whole slew of jets, planes, and choppers, but End Game will mark the first time players will get behind the handlebars of a motorcycle.
The motorcycle reveal, as we mentioned before, comes by way of a promotional image for End Game, which is set to release some time in March of 2013. First up, however, is Armored Kill, the new tank-heavy DLC that promises to be a huge counterpoint to the Close Quarters expansion that has been rocking the Battlefield 3 multiplayer recently.
There are no details about said motorcycles, only that they will be lethal and fast. The image also implies that players will not only be able to fit two to a cycle but will be able to fire whilst maneuvering them, but that has yet to be confirmed.
In addition to the aforementioned two-wheel death machines, End Game is said to also feature new maps, vehicles, and more, but DICE is keeping pretty tight lipped as far as details go. Gamers should expect that once Armored Kill hits in September that more information, hopefully in regards to these awesome motorcycles, will start to flood in.
For now, players can sleep easy knowing that DICE isn’t about to rest on their laurels and coast to the finish line, but plan to push the limits of content until the bitter end of Battlefield 3‘s post-game content cycle. And, after that, they plan to continue to support the hugely popular multiplayer, even as they begin work on the inevitable Battlefield 4, which you can get early hands-on with if you pre-order Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
What do you think about the addition of motorcycles to Battlefield 3 in End Game? What other awesome vehicles would you like to see DICE put into the final DLC?
Battlefield 3: End Game releases March 2013 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
