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.

I really like what this poster had to say over on bf3blog.com; seems to echo my own sentiments nicely:

People need to keep in mind that the DLC after this one is going to be heavily focused on vehicle warfare.

Some people like wide open maps, and some people, such as myself, enjoy the clusterfuck of people in tight infantry based maps. Is it because it has a Call of Duty element to it? Hell no. Itís because I enjoy the 24/7 carnage. I enjoy bullets flying around around me everywhere, and the constant sound of gunfire. Heck, I probably wasted a total of 5 days in hours from playing Strike at Karkand in Battlefield 2.

But donít get me wrong; I also LOVE wide open maps. In BF2, Highway Tampa was some of the funnest game play Iíve ever had in any Battlefield game. I couldnít begin to explain how many hours Iíve spent on that map having a blast with the heavy vehicle warfare.

My point is that everyone has their own preferences. Some people like the tight close quarters infantry combat, some people like wide open maps which focus more on vehicle warfare.

DICE seems like they are giving something for everyone; Close-Quarters for the people who enjoy tight quarters combat, and Armored Kill for the people who like wide open maps and vehicle warfare.

In conclusion, please donít hate on someone else because of their preferences. We all have our likes and dislikes, but in the end everyone is getting a little something that they like; either it be Close Quarters, or Armored kill.


That's bullshit, there are dozens of dumb infantry games for the COD kids to play already. They don't need to turn BF into another one. Fucking EA.
