EA and DICE have released the very last DLC of Battlefield 3, End Game. Not fully though, if you're a Premium member on the Playstation 3 then you're in luck and can start downloading now. Everyone else? Sit tight because Premium members on the Xbox and PC will have it on the 12th. Non-Premium members on the Playstation 3 , Xbox and PC will have to wait until 19th and 26th. Pretty far apart huh?
End Game marks the fifth DLC for the 2011 release of Battlefield 3. A game with a massive community. DLCs like this one keep the flame burning, even after a year and more of the game's initial release. Some people though – have mixed feelings when it comes to DLCs. They feel the publishers and developers are stretching the game too far by charging them for content they believe should've been a part of the original release. They think of it as just another way to squeeze a few extra dollars(which is true). Making the games more like other subscription-based titles. I, on the other hand, don't see them as such a petulance.
For games like Battlefield and other FPS, DLCs mostly give you new maps, gamemodes or weapons. They're optional, you don't have to have them and you won't be at a disadvantage. If you're a hardcore Battlefield fan, nothing could possibly make you happier. If the DLC featured stuff that would put me at a great disadvantage, like a level cap or better gear in MMOs, then I'd understand the rage.
I played Battlefield non-stop when it was released. I didn't even bother with the campaign because the multiplayer was so engaging. Eventually, like most FPS, the maps and modes get exhausted. So naturally, I drifted away. Then Back to Karkand came along and dragged me right back into it. I believe DICE did a great job with their DLCs, keeping their game alive for almost 2 years after the release.
