Today DICE announced that there will be three DLC packs released this year. The first one, Close Quarters
will be released this June. Like its namesake the maps will focus on indoor combat, a lot more constricted and narrow than we're used to in Battlefield 3
. However, EA promised the same game play and destruction quality indoors, as well as new ways to play.
We can expect to see Armoured Kill
this Autumn (or Fall) and End Game
In June, take the battle indoors with our new themed expansion pack Battlefield 3: Close Quarters! This will be followed by all-out vehicle warfare in Battlefield 3: Armored Kill, featuring the biggest map in Battlefield history. Read on for the very first details about these upcoming expansion packs and more.
We are happy to announce the first details on our June expansion pack Battlefield 3: Close Quarters. As the battlefield moves indoors, we will drop you into frantic and relentless infantry combat where the tight level design and vertical gameplay creates a highly competitive environment.
By introducing high definition destruction, everything from furniture to plaster can be shot to pieces, and rubble and broken pieces will pile up on the floor as the battle rages on. Like all of our themed expansion packs, this is much more than just new maps, as we also include new weapons, Assignments, and dog tags to bring back to the base game ó much in the same way as we did for Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand.
But weíre not stopping there. This fall will see some truly epic all-out vehicle warfare in our third expansion pack, Battlefield 3: Armored Kill. Featuring new drivable tanks, ATVís, mobile artillery, and more ó and to top it off, the biggest map in Battlefield history.
We also have a fourth expansion pack lined up for you: Battlefield 3: End Game, but details about that one remain tightly guarded for now. In addition to these three expansion packs and our upcoming Spring update, we will also add a much requested feature: a fully integrated rent-a-server program for console players. We will detail this program fully later, closer to launch.
We hope you are as excited as we are about finally being able to tell you the first details about our upcoming plans for Battlefield 3. Return next week for the first gameplay trailer from Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, as well as media impressions from our event yesterday at Game Devopers Conference.
