After selling over 12 million copies of Battlefield 3 one could think that EA would be content. If you happen to think that then I have news: you're wrong! Today DICE and EA have announced three themed packs that will include new modes, unique environments, and more ways to maneuver around giant maps searching for dudes. We have the details on these new expansion packs below,


- 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. This will be the first that you can get your hands on this coming June.

- 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. This pack will drop in the fall.

- Battlefield 3: End Game – The fourth expansion pack will ship in the winter but details remain tightly guarded.

“Instead of delivering piecemeal map packs, we’re giving players a completely new experience with every themed expansion pack to keep the action fresh," Patrick Bach, Executive Producer of Battlefield 3 said. "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.”
