Battlefield 3: Close Encounters Footage

BF3Blog has a video shot off a monitor at PAX East showing off gameplay in the upcoming Close Encounters DLC for Battlefield 3, the military shooter sequel. The clip shows off the claustrophobic indoor combat the new DLC will add.

Ugh, that video looks terrible and is totally not in the spirit of what BF is. TDM is by far the worst mode in the game, so bad that they have to literally force people to play it on the PC through assignments. Definitely not picking up this DLC.

The BF engine can't really do CS maps very well, the gunplay and netcode is nowhere near tight enough for it. It's a total waste of an engine meant to render large landscapes as well. Between this and the latest patch marginalizing vehicles I don't really care for the direction this franchise is headed in.

Karkand proved you could have large maps that feature great infantry combat, this sort of DLC is pointless and seems to just pander to the mindless hordes who play Metro64 24/7.
