Battlefield 3 Close Quarters, Armored Kill, End Game Expansion Packs Announced

DICE has a lot of DLC planned for Battlefield 3. The military shooter will receive three digital expansion packs this year. The first of these expansions, Close Quarters, will launch in June.

The Close Quarters expansion introduces an infantry-only "theatre of war". It's not clear whether the DLC includes several maps or just one. New weapons, assignments and dog tags will be included in this content as well.

Battlefield 3: Armored Kill focuses on vehicle-based warfare. It will add expansive new battlegrounds for air and ground battles, including the largest map in Battlefield history. Armored Kill will introduce new vehicles as well, such as tanks, ATVs, and mobile artillery. Armored Kill will arrive sometime in the fall.

No details were released about Battlefield 3: End Game's features. All we know is that it will be released in the winter. We've got plenty of time, then, to speculate. Maybe it adds to the game's campaign?

The price of these expansion packs wasn't mentioned. It's unlikely they'll be free, though. The first expansion pack, Back to Karkand, was $15 for gamers who didn't buy a new copy of BF3.

"Instead of delivering piecemeal map packs, we’re giving players a completely new experience with every themed expansion pack to keep the action fresh," said executive producer Patrick Bach. "Our expansions are designed to excite our large and active fan base while attracting new recruits with gameplay that is dynamic and unpredictable every time."
