Three Battlefield 3 Expansions Announced

EA announces plans for three upcoming expansion packs for Battlefield 3, DICE's military shooter sequel, revealing Battlefield 3: Close Quarters to be released in June, Battlefield 3: Armored Kill for autumn, and Battlefield 3: End Game, which is due this winter. Here's word:

-- 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.

On a semi-related note, EA has opened a new studio in Gothenburg Sweden specifically to develop projects using the Frostbite 2 engine that powers Battlefield 3.

Whatever happened to the patch that was going to address the cheaters? That has seemed to have been shut up real quick.

the patch would only directly address the mav "exploit" of being able to use it as an elevator to high up places that you can't get to otherwise, on most maps.

no patch will address cheaters, they've implemented a "report" system on battlelog (tiny little exclamation icon on player profiles) but I bet it doesn't even send a notice to anyone, probably sends the "report" right into the recycle bin.

I've reported cheaters in BF3 before and not a one has been banned yet. Most end up having stats reset but they live to cheat another day.

I struggle to think of a single game I have been more disappointed in than BF3. Bugs and cheaters galore and before they've even really made a stab at fixing any of it they announce expansions. Way to grab for that brass ring EA/DICE!

Well, there's a difference between exploiters, cheaters/hackers, and stat padders. Resetting stats is a fine way to deal with stat padders and exploiters, but there isn't much DICE can do to stop cheaters/hackers. Just don't play on any servers that don't use GCC or PBB, otherwise the onus is on the server admins to police their servers.
