BF3 DLC Box art

MTV got their hands on the official box art for the upcoming three Battlefield 3 DLCs: Close Quarters, Armored Kill, and End Game. While the box art (found by the guys over at MTV) isn’t of any great quality, we do get a sense of what’s in store for us. The first DLC, Close Quarters, will be released in June, with the other two in the second half of 2012. There have been some rumors that the third DLC, “End Game”, will be set in Vietnam. But that’s pure speculation at this point.

    I think End Game might be dinosaurs as the guy on the cover looks like Robin Williams in Jumanji, i.e. he’s been roughing it. Why would else would a bearded man with a flare being running on the cover of end game??

    I rather have WWII though . . . Frostbite + WWII = The best thing to happen to gaming in a long while. This is especially after the new MOH, which seems neat, ultimately was another terrorism/Russian fighting modern-shooter.

      @ MadlockUK

      With all due respect, the dino thing is a bad joke being dragged on for far too long, or people are serious about it.

      If people are being serious…then, well, I don’t know how to put this without sounding insulting. A real dino mode wouldn’t have anything at all to do with Battlefield, and it would would be completely silly.

      Just my opinion.

        It may not have anything at all to do with Battlefield 3. It may not even be realistic. It is obviously incredibly silly. But come on. CoD had zombies.

        Dinousaurs > Zombies.

        BF3 > CoD

        BF3 + Dinosaurs will probably sell out faster than anything in the history of gaming. You can’t really tell me it would not be incredibly fun to shoot a Tyrannosaurus Rex in the face with a M1 Abrams.

        If you ever played Dino Crisis, you will know it is fun to kill dinosaurs. I’m not expecting anything, but good lord it would be EPIC.

          Could be though, who knows. Of course, the Box Art could even be fake, so who knows. After all, BtK was Download-Only, no reason for these not to be.

        Here’s what I think.

        If you look at the game DICE is trying to beat (become), they are doing what IW has done. Make the DLC out of the maps they had as missions in campaign mode.

        CLOSE QUARTERS-looks like the mission where you are fighting thru the house/hotel. Sorry, havent played campaign since it first came out. That would be easy for them to convert it to a multiplayer map.

        ARMORED KILL-could easily be the “Thunder run”? mission. Could be the biggest map if you remember that mission.

        END GAME-Remember all the hype of the NY DLC? Last mission in campaign was in NY, was it not?

        Like I said, these are my thoughts on the DLC. I am probably way off, but DICE seems to be copying COD lately and if you remember the COD mappacks, they all seemed to be based off single player (or just remake maps from previous titles and call them DLC)

    I know these things take time, but we are talking about little CoD sized maps for close quarters; not something on a bigger scale like Armored Kill.

        I think what we can expect from dice, after these DLC is,

        First, bf2143. They have already hired it, plus it’s due for a release.

        Second, bfbc3. They also acknowledged that this will be released.

        Third, bf4. (hopeful on some sick version of frostbite)

        Hopefully dice does not lose all of their vets before this happens due to poor marketing decisions… Ea >.<

      I feel like they’re teasing us. When it comes out everybody will be so happy at the sight of DLC that they just don’t care. Or, maybe they are going to make it seem so NOT Battlefield that when they release Armored Kill that will make the community love them? I don’t know, this stuff is confusing.

      If DICE really wanted to, I’m sure they could have the Close Quarters DLC done in a month.

      I’m thinking it’s more of a business strategy. The spaced out release dates give them time to work on other projects, while extending the life of BF3.

        WWI would be nice only… Most of WWI was trench fighting. Nothing many people would like to play. (other then Cod players) You would spend all your time sitting in a trench and shooting at someone or what you hopped to be someone. They didn’t have tanks, at least ones that didn’t travel on train rails, their air combat was somewhat… Odd to fly.

        Most of the battlefield was called “No Mans Land.” I trust I don’t need to explain the name.

    The only why for EA/Dice to get with the program is to make them lose money. How do we accomplish this? Don’t buy the freaking DLC when it is released. I’m tired of gamers buying shitty DLC and giving game developers the idea of “We don’t have to make amazing new content because they’ll buy it anyway!”. Considering all the bugs battlefield is experiencing as of right now. It just goes to show that Dice didn’t put 100% effort in making BF3, nor will they continue to do so because they already received payment from us the consumer.

      In my opinion I hope they do something like Highway Tampa from BF2. I’m not saying an exact remake, but something with the same concept; HUGE, open, mostly flat terrain with the flags spread out and two uncappable main bases, and of course, primary focus being vehicle warfare.

      And slight off topic warning:
      I wish DICE would bring back the dust/sand storms. For example, BF2 Strike at Karkand had a dust/sand storm making your field of view lower. Not too low, but low enough to where it really changed up the game play.

      Highway Tampa would of been a big tank sniping fest with tanks hundreds of yards away playing the who can compensate for shell drop the best game if it weren’t for the sandstorms.
