Battlefield 3 Rolls Out Plans For Three New Expansion Packs

Whether your weapon of choice is a tank or a shotgun, our upcoming expansions for Battlefield 3 have your play style covered. Get "hands-on" in Close Quarters, hit the gas in Armored Kill, and get ready for mayhem in the top-secret End Game

Pure Infantry
In Close Quarters, we've zeroed in on a more up-close and personal style of play. Feel the world explode around you as the rubble piles up and navigate tight, tense levels that emphasize vertical gameplay. This infantry-only expansion also introduces new weapons, assignments, and unique dog tags that you can bring back to the base game.

Vehicular Mayhem
Armored Kill rebounds from Close Quarters’  narrow spaces with a set of huge battlefields, including the biggest map in Battlefield history. Slide behind the wheel of new driveable tanks, ATVs, mobile artillery, and more as you destroy the world in glorious Frostbite 2 style.

More To Come
The only thing we can reveal about Battlefield 3's fourth expansion is its name -- End Game -- and its approximate release date -- Winter 2012. You'll have to stay tuned for the details on this one.

    "This infantry-only expansion also introduces new weapons, assignments, and unique dog tags that you can bring back to the base game." Vehicles are part of the map, not something unlockable, so no, you won't be able to use them in base game or B2K maps.

    Is this why the servers for PSN are down, and "stressed" for the PC?

    Close Quarters looks amazing! My only concern, is the destructive capabilities of the current selection of shotguns. Mainly the USAS-12 and its frag ammo. Many of us already get frustrated on the open battlefield when these are in play, let alone a map designed for close quarters and destructive scenery. Any thoughts?

    The rules that govern rules of play are horrible most encourage the camping of players at oposing spawn points while they can increase their kill score by shootin into the spawn areaand the effective countermeasures like using the mortor in the spawn area are not avaiable on most servers if caught on the wrong side there is no fun or reason to play the game only a major source of fustration this will affect any future prchases of ea games

    Will there be a release for Lan play? I doubt I will continue to buy the next battlefield series without the ability to have lan play which I enjoy since battlefield 1 to 2 series.
