Battlefield 3: Close Quarters first trailer and new details

Last week, we went to San Francisco and the Game Developers Conference to demo our explosive expansion pack Battlefield 3™: Close Quarters to press. First gameplay trailer, first screenshot, and new details below.

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.

Claiming new territory, Frostbite 2 style.

The tight level design and vertical gameplay means death can come from any angle, and the HD Destruction adds a new layer of mayhem to the game. Check out our first gameplay trailer from Battlefield 3: Close Quarters above, and stay tuned for an in-depth look at HD Destruction in our “Inside DICE” blog series soon.

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.

Look for Battlefield 3: Close Quarters this June, and stay tuned for more news soon, as media hands-on impressions will start hitting the web today.

    If your gonna make a great game like Battlefield 3, you have got to have a theatre mode where you can playback your previous games and record or watch in slow motion so you can capture those great moments. How many of you have had epic moments and wish you could watch it again? Battlefield 3 NEEDS a theatre mode, copy and paste in comment so we can let DICE know we want a theatre mode

    I can finally try some new tatics out and hopefully rack up my count of knife kills. Indoor maps should be really cool. Except for the usual noobs who use, ahh, it would take to long to type here.

    I think the real question should be where did great ideas from battlefield special forces 2 the zip line the grapple to climb on the roof and snipe from towers that aren’t cranes go?????
    Please iron gator that map is the best for real strategy on a ship which is plain awesome. Can’t you please look at adding something similar to 2142 with capturing objectives that lead to a base??????????????????????

    I live battlefield

    Honestly though the new maps look amazing and the frantic gameplay is sweet.

  • LeDuckman21 03.25.12 at 22:38

    These maps look cool but BF3 players would welcome a large, vehicle loaded map also.

  • Stoppelfox 03.25.12 at 15:51

    On the roof should be an helicopter maybe with miniguns or a AH-64… or it has to stay on another bulding next to the mainbuilding!
