EA Announces Future Expansion Packs For Battlefield 3

EA has announced today via a press release that it’s releasing three new themed digital expansion packs for Battlefield 3. Powered by the Frostbite 2 engine, the next expansion packs are: Battlefield 3: Close Quarters in June, Battlefield 3: Armoured Kill in the fall, and Battlefield 3: End Game in the winter. Battlefield 3 is supposed to be coming to Wii U, so hopefully we will receive the Close Quarters, Armoured Kill and End Game expansions with the retail game.

  • Battlefield 3: Close Quarters – 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 – Following the tight infantry gameplay of Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, DICE will release Battlefield 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 – The fourth expansion pack will ship in the winter but details remain tightly guarded.

    1. It seems to be up in the air. I believe they originally said it was coming at E3, but they’ve kept quiet ever since on the subject. It might be that will just get Medal of Honor: Warfighter in its place.

      1. no no, DICE clearly stated that they had no plans for battlefield 3 on wii u, because they didnt have that “breakthrough idea” of how to use the new controller, and they didnt want to port the game without special features. however this doesnt mean the game isnt coming, just means that medal of honour is far more likely

          1. The link from your own site is from a later date, therefore it will not come to the Wii U. All is just speculation until confirmed.

            Also, Grammar Nazi says: I took the* Then I*

  1. Lol you obviously don’t know EA if you thing they will be included in the retail game. Get ready to pay 120$ for the game+DLC.

    Also lol year too late.

  2. There is actually no evidence pointing to this coming to the Wii U, even the developers said that. They said something about it looking good on the system but they have no interest in bringing it to it. Thanks for the news but no thanks

  3. i dont know why third party dev are devope games only for ps3 and 360 and not for wii2.?But the real next gen games are more way ahead

  4. I’m pretty sure I’ve read statements that made it clear BF3 won’t be going to WII U… The next battlefield we can only hope…

  6. Ea never confirmed Battlefield 3 would be coming to the Wii U. They simply used it as an example for the graphics that the machine was capable of at E3, but they didn’t confirmed anything. Then Dice flat out said it was not coming to Wii U at all.

    Instead, I think Medal of Honor may be coming to Wii U since that will be a recent game that uses the same engine.
