If you’ve been itching to try out new weapons and maps in Battlefield 3, then we have good news for you! EA has just announced that they will be releasing three new expansions to the game all set to release within the year.
The expansions’ names and descriptions can be read below.
Battlefield 3: Close Quarters
In Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, players are dropped into a frantic, infantry-only theatre 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.
DICE producer Patrick Bach adds, “Instead of delivering piecemeal map packs, we’re giving players a completely new experience with every themed expansion pack to keep the action fresh.
Our expansions are designed to excite our large and active fan base while attracting new recruits with gameplay that is dynamic and unpredictable every time.”
While the next expansion is still a few months off, it’s at least nice to know that BF3 players have a lot to look forward to in the future, no? I just hope Battlecorder gets integrated in the game before the “End Game” expansion drops.
