A little over a month ago, DICE/EA announced that they would release 3 expansion packs, the first of which is going to be titled 'Close Quarters'. Immediately peoples arms shot into the air with an emphatic WTF!? Why would they do this? these close quarters maps are being made just to appease the COD fans that DICE/EA is still trying to get on board.
Now that we have a gameplay trailer it becomes apparent as to why they are making these maps. DESTRUCTION. The Frostbite 2 engine is amazing, probably one of the most amazing gaming engines of all time. But it has its limits as we can see. Want better textures and better vehicles? well you wont be able to destroy any trees, in fact your tank won't even be able to run them over. The 'Close Quarters' map looks as though they will solve this. With smaller maps and no vehicles shown, the massive amounts of computing power can be focused onto the one thing that truly makes Battlefield awesome: DESTRUCTION.
This trailer focuses on a new level named "Donya Fortress." The level takes place in an old castle, and it features crumbling walls and tons of debris. It features a great courtyard and tunnels on the outskirts to battle in. There will be no Rush mode, but it does feature a conquest domination mode. It will also probably feature a team death match and a squad death match mode. The game also will feature 10 new weapons to probably come in new assignments. These weapons are the AUG Assault Rifle, SCAR Assault Rifle, ACW-R Carbine, MTAR-21 Carbine, M417 Sniper Rifle, JNG-90 Sniper Rifle, L86LSW Machine Gun, LSAT Machine Gun, M5K Tactical Machine Pistol, SPAS-12 Shotgun and they are all featured in this trailer.
The DLC map pack titled "Close Quarters" is due to be released in June and will be released 1 week early for the Playstation 3.
