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.

    This may be a dumb question, but why exactly does Downloadable Content require box art? Downloadable = no box. No box = no box art.

      I guess they will probably choose one of those new box art for the re-release of BF3. I know Battlefield 3 didn’t won GOTY, but i think DICE dosen’t really care about that, EA will be standind behind DICE and have them at gun point and tell them to re-release BF3 just so they can make more dough… Fu EA! DICE should find another publisher. EA has already fucked enough of my favourite games(NFS)… DICE should not let them fuck the only good FPS out there, oh wait………………….

        I’m not positive, but I think EA might have a big chunk of ownership on Battlefield. If DICE were to find another publisher, which personally I would love them to get away from EA, then EA would still probably own a lot, if not all of Battlefield.

        If that’s the case, then either way Battlefield is…well, it’s fucked. Battlefield was destroyed when EA decided to make it a CoD cross over and made DICE rush it out the door, because God forbid Modernwarfare came out before Battlefield.

        The only hope we have left is in 2143 and Battlefield 4, if either of them are made. Hopefully they wont be a CoD cross over, and hopefully they return the things that they should of *NEVER* removed in the first place such as commanders and 6 player squads.

          It’s not only Commander and 6 player squads. Theirs MUCH *MUCH* more to it than that. In that post I only provided two examples.

    Alan Kertz (Tsk tsk tsk)
    Lied about commander having control of mortars (Commander are useless, Just for show)
    Lied about frostbite 2 having better destruction? Half the walls are unbreakable!
    Lied about there will be no small map sizes (I cant find my evidence on this one but he DID!)
    A 1GB patch? How much did they F*ck up badly with this game?
    Once USAS Frags will be patched people will move on the the Jackhammer frags!
    Australians servers are rat Sh*t for PS3
    “New players will not get dominated and we do give them chances and start them of with easy weapons” (M16s with iron sights, Really)
    Noobs get sh*t on
    Nearly impossible to take down a jet, 3 stingers if the jet has flares…(then again his flares would be ready by the time the person reloads and locks on again)
    Also impossible to take down choppers if its full of engineers repairing 24/7
    I will defs not be buying the first DLC
    Only CoD Wh*res who loved getting spammed or spamming other players with: Grenades,RPGs(Smaw), Usas Frag rounds,M320s
    F*Ck you DICE for making the Sh*test game of Battlefield yet!

      Sorry but you list fails :/ Second point about destruction alone is pretty dumb.
      More destruction =/= better destruction.
      More detailed destruction = Better destruction.

    I hope they add some Spec Ops-themed stuff and/or a Spec Ops class in endgame. It would add some more variety to the gameplay. It might also encourage people to be more stealthy. I don’t know how that would affect who gets which weapons though. Mostly, it’d be good if they brought some new stuff and some stuff that was in the BF2 Special Forces pack (like the HIND) into the game to add a little more variety to the vehicles. However, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.

    Also, if Endgame sort of did a continuation of the campaign to some degree and/or some new co-op stuff that’d be cool too. It’d be nice to see how things shake out as a result of the PLR’s failed plans at the end of the campaign.

    i think if they plan to make the largest map in BF history im thinking they need to think of a new transport system, maybe as we saw in operation metro with the jets para-trooping troops in? And as a bonus to get from point A to point B the jets also drops things like buggys etc. although im not sure how thngs would be regulated in terms of jeeps, they could have a buggy for each 4 person squad but what if the enemy team steals one of the buggys? will the other team spawn a whole new one?

      Hopfully they have more than only 2 jets per team. And the air drop in to combat like bfbc2 woul be great.

    i know you guys are going crazy and are getting pissed off about ” Close quarters” but cmon we got 2 probably big map dlc’s that will be coming out in the future and this CQ dlc is only an experiment. dice is just experimenting to see if they can do close quarter combat maps better than COD. and i think they can. i think we will see some very interesting maps in this DLC. it may just be worth the money.

    You know what makes me mad? Dice’s & EA’s lie after lie? No.
    Their decision to instead of slowly fix issues, make us wait in
    A boatload of broken content? No…
    What makes me mad is that after all this, they dont apologize to
    Their loyal game community for all they’ve done wrong.
    Instead they deliver an announcement of how satisfied they are with
    how things are comming along.

    I am really excited about the 3rd DLC “End Game”.

    I guess it would be some kind of a post-nuclear setting without any hi-tech gadgets and modern combat vehicles.

    So we’ll enjoy WW2 – style gameplay and rubbish-made equipment.

    I don t get a lot of you guys, half of you are screaming out : “DLC”, “FAST”
    “whys it taking so long”, and then your whining because apparently you got it and it has bugs and glitches. Either take your time and do something right or get it quick and deal with the consequences later. There´s a saying in my country: a product needs to be cheap, fast, and slick but you can only pick 2 out of 3 options

    “do i have to buy close combat DLC for the pc format being as its only 16 plyer maps i dont want”

    interesting point really here

    my guess is, sadly anyone who doesnt have it will get kicked my map rotation and 64 player servers, pc servers, the few there are left, wont rotate it. Unless a 64 player server will suddenly kick 48 players ?

    it isnt designed for 64 player servers being a 16 player map pack, as such we can only assume is isnt pc platform DLC frankly if you think about it,or certainly not for PC servers in mind

    Dice /Ea havent really thought this 16 player DLC thru at all really for the PC format

    Id be interested to hear how they plan to allow 64 slot PC servers and hence the PC community to utilize this “Close combat” DLC ???

    “End game” reminds me “special forces”. But the character that appears reminds me Dima. It seems that carry a flare. Still I have hope it’s something kind of special forces, for me the best pack of BF2

    in the background of Endgame it looks like there’s a car, so it might be urban. the Jet in Armored kill kind of looks like the f-16 or it could still be the f-18 at a weird angle

    * Boat Fights!!
    * Jet Ski
    * people gong under water (sorry I don’t know the name of it, that thing they use in COD: MW3)
    * Battle Ships
    * people parachuting from Planes to enemy base (SHIP is the base)

    stuff like that… will be EPIC!!

    in the end ship sinks (after the last M-COM destroys). like in the pearl harbor movie…

    attackers ships also can be destroyed. then they can only spawn on their PLANES :)
