New Battlefield 3 DLC Announced (3 Packs)

The world focused around Battlefield 3 DLC has been oddly quiet up until today. After months of planned DLC, the community received very little in terms of news and what to expect, but today EA released information concerning three new DLC packs.


In June, take the battle indoors with our new themed expansion pack Battlefield 3: Close Quarters! This will be followed by all-out vehicle warfare in Battlefield 3: Armored Kill, featuring the biggest map in Battlefield history. Read on for the very first details about these upcoming expansion packs and more.

Battlefield 3: Close Quarters

The first expansion pack, titled “Close Quarters” is expected to be released this coming June. The pack will feature maps focused on close quarters combat, think Grand Bazaar and Operation Metro. There will be some added perks like “high definition destruction”, which in turn provides a highly destructible environment. It will also come with more weapons, assignments, and dog-tags for Battlefield 3.

We are happy to announce the first details on our June expansion pack Battlefield 3: Close Quarters. As the battlefield moves indoors, we will drop you into frantic and relentless infantry combat where the tight level design and vertical gameplay creates a highly competitive environment.

By introducing high definition destruction, everything from furniture to plaster can be shot to pieces, and rubble and broken pieces will pile up on the floor as the battle rages on. Like all of our themed expansion packs, this is much more than just new maps, as we also include new weapons, Assignments, and dog tags to bring back to the base game — much in the same way as we did for Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand.

Battlefield 3: Armored Kill

Sometime in Fall 2012 is when we’ll see the next DLC pack, Armored Kill. This pack will focus strictly on vehicle combat (land combat). Expect massive maps, endless amounts of vehicles, and tons of Battlefield 3 scenery powered by Frostbite 2. This pack will also bring in the goodies like unlocks, assignments, and dog-tags.


This fall will see some truly epic all-out vehicle warfare in our third expansion pack, Battlefield 3: Armored Kill. Featuring new drivable tanks, ATV’s, mobile artillery, and more — and to top it off, the biggest map in Battlefield history.

Battlefield 3: End Game

The last piece of DLC for 2012 will be End Game. Nothing is known about this DLC as of now. (Maybe a new game-mode?)

The trailer for Close Quarters will be coming out next week, so keep your eyes here for more information concerning Battlefield 3 DLC. Console players are also getting a new feature, rented servers. Console players will now be able to have their own servers, so playing games with friends and clan-mates will be easier then ever before. PS3 players will also get these Battlefield 3 DLC packs one week early, per an agreement between EA and Sony.
