Following last week's announcement of the upcoming DLC expansion trio for Battlefield 3, DICE have now released a trailer for the first one, Battlefield 3: Close Quarters.
As the name suggest, this one is all about up close and personal warfare and the first map we get to look at goes Diehard-style in a skyscraper called Ziba Tower. Hit the embed below or click here for the HD video page.
With Close Quarters, we really wanted to take Battlefield 3 in a new direction, to offer players another style of gameplay while still retaining what is uniquely Battlefield. What journalists on site could play was a relentless infantry combat map called “Ziba Tower” (internally known simply as “Skybar”).
The clue for the theme in Close Quarters is in the title: The battlefield moves indoors, and we’re bringing HD Destruction! While the squad functionality and gunplay will feel instantly recognizable for any Battlefield player, moving the battle to tight maps means it’s instant action and even more frantic than normal.
This June expansion pack has the same scope and ambition as Back to Karkand. This means that besides new maps, the expansion pack also offers 10 new weapons that you can bring back to the base game, 10 new Assignments, 5 unique dog tags, new audio, new ways to play, and more.
Close Quarters is due on all platforms in June 2012. Stay tuned for our own hands-on impressions shortly.
