DICE have revealed that they will be rolling out three themed expansion packs for Battlefield 3.
The new packs, which will all be digital and not distributed by disk, will feature brand new modes, vehicles, weapons and environments.
Here are the details released by EA:
Battlefield 3: Close Quarters (June, 2012)
“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 (Autumn, 2012)
“Following the tight infantry gameplay of Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, DICE will releaseBattlefield 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 (Winter, 2012)
“The fourth expansion pack will ship in the winter but details remain tightly guarded.”
Although no official pricing has been announced yet, it seems the new expansion packs will follow suit with the Back to Karkand pack and be priced at around 1200 Microsoft Points or £11.99 .
Are DICE being generous with 3 expansions in the space of a year, or are they trying to expand an already deep multiplayer?
