Today, EA announced details pertaining to their new expansion pack “Close Quarters” which is slated for a June 2012 release and will be available for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. As the name suggests, the new updated expansion pack is themed around CQB or Close Quarters Battle.
With the update, some of the new features that will be available with this pack is the fact that you’ll be immersed in “frantic and relentless infantry combat” and being able to riddle the environment to ruin which they said was nothing short of leaving holes in the plaster to chewing up furniture and such. From what their suggesting, it seems with the success of the Frostbite 2 engine, that they are taking the whole destruction 3.0 to a whole new level as a lot more of the environment is more involved in the “Battlefield” experience. From reading more, they do also happen to suggest that just like the “Return to Karkand” expansion pack, that Battlelog will have additional assignments to complete to unlock more additional weapons which is always a plus in my book. It also seems suggested that they might be adding an additional Co-Op tree which would be nice with any expansion that comes out for Battlefield 3 since with the base game, you still had to do some of those mission to unlock certain weapons. EA also stated that additional information will be available on the official page, March 13. So, dust off that Ciras Vest, load up on some 5.56 and 7.62, and get ready to rumble because it definitely sounds like its going to be exciting.
