EA reveals new Battlefield 3 DLC
If you are a fan of Battlefield 3 like us, then this will be the best news you heard this week. EA has revealed at GDC 2012 not just one or two DLC’s, but 3. Here is more info about the DLC’s themselves:
The first one coming in June is called “Close Quarters”, which, as the name suggests, will focus on infantry combat. Then later this year we will see “Armored Kill”, which focuses a lot more on vehicles than other maps and it will also boast the largest map in the history of the series. Lastly, in the winter, the details-light “End Game” will be released. Before you rush off to secure more Microsoft Points, here’s the full word from EA and DICE:
Battlefield 3:Close Quarters — In Battlefield 3:Close Quarters, players are dropped into a frantic, infantry-only theater of war. Frostbite 2 high definition destruction makes the environment come alive as everything from furniture to plaster gets shot to pieces. Players will feel the intensity of the world exploding around them as rubble and broken pieces pile up on the floor, while tight level design and vertical gameplay create a highly competitive environment. Battlefield 3:Close Quarters also introduces new weapons, assignments and unique dog tags to bring back to the base game.
Battlefield 3:Armored Kill — Following the tight infantry gameplay of Battlefield 3:Close Quarters, DICE will release Battlefield 3:Armored Kill that ups the ante for vehicular mayhem as only Battlefield can do. Featuring new driveable tanks, ATVs, mobile artillery and more, Battlefield 3:Armored Kill also delivers huge battlefields for an all-out vehicle assault, including the biggest map in Battlefield history.
Battlefield 3:End Game — The fourth expansion pack will ship in the winter but details remain tightly guarded.
No pricing has been revealed yet. Will keep you updated when we know.
