News: Battlefield 3 to get 3 new expansion packs this year
Still no news of the fabled patch, but 3 new expansion packs were just announced the first of which lands this June. So get your trigger fingers ready!
The three new expansion packs are:
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.
Close Quarters ships in June, while Armored Kill will ship sometime this fall. No word on when End Game will be released and still no word on when we'll get the patch to fix some of the bugs and balance issues that have been plaguing the multiplayer.
We should see the first gameplay videos from Close Quarters next week.
Release Date: Oct 25, 2011
