If you happen to be a PS3 Battlefield 3 Premium member, then you’ll be pleased to know you can get your grubby mitts on Armored Kill before PC and Xbox 360 owners. Regular PS3 owners will have to wait a little longer, though.

Battlefield 3 Premium made its debut last month, and notched up 800,000 paid subscribers in its first fortnight of availability.

Additional DLC for Battlefield 3 will be released later down the line, with Armored Kill being the third of five post-launch content packs. The final pair – Aftermath and End Game – will be released in December 2012 and March 2013, respectively.
