Battlefield 3 DLC On Its Way

DICE's Premier Multiplayer FPS will release the 'Close Quarters' DLC in June, featuring new destructive maps, assignments and weapons.




Coming to PC, XBox360 and PS3 in June 2012, the Battlefield 3: Close Quarters DLC will showcase new maps and weapons whilst bringing more substantial destructive environments to the table. As with the original game, the DLC have been developed by DICE and will be published by EA.

As the name implies, BF3: Close Quarters maps will concentrate on tighter maps with little room to manoeuvre - hopefully increasing the pace of combat in the process. EA are also coining the term 'HD Destruction', implying that the maps have been designed from the ground up for much higher scene deformation than previous BF3 maps to date. EA's gameplay trailer for the DLC shows this quite well:



Exact dates and pricing for BF3: Close Quarters has yet to be released, but it has been stated that the DLC will arrive 'one week earlier' on PS3. It's also possible that the DLC will be an Origin Exclusive on PC.

I'm interesting in the Close Quarters DLC, but I never picked up B2K.. $15 for maps that I used in previous Battlefields didn't strike me as a good deal.

But will I need B2K to use CQ?

Hmm I don't think the maps are rehashed from the old games. The one in the video is defo new. And I don't think you'll need B2K for it. It's more like the expansions for BF2.

Ahh, I didn't pay anything for it . Love the maps though, not quite as good as the original but certainly nostalgic. But yeah $15 is a bit much.

I'm not a fan of the close quarters maps in BF3. I really prefer maps that put the field in Battlefield.

Still, if they can showcase some enhanced destruction than that's cool. I think I will wait for more open maps.

Planetside 2 is going to put BF3 to shame.

I used to be such a BF fan aswell.....
