Battlefield 3 Close Quarters Gameplay & Screens

By Ashley Woodcock, 4 years ago
Thanks to DICE revealing their DLC schedule last month for https://www.trueachievements.com/Battlefield-3-xbox-360.htm, fans of the title will have their calendar/diary/palm-pilot's remaining days of the year marked with "playing BF3 :)". The first DLC to arrive will be the "Close Quarters" pack in which we have already seen an included map, Ziba Tower, in some sweet gameplay action, alongside some destructive screens showcasing the before and after of the location being destroyed by gunfire and explosives. EA and DICE have now released new screens and a gameplay trailer for another map included in the first DLC, entitled Donya Fortress, along with new details for the "Close Quarters" DLC as a whole.

The screens make Donya Fortress look a lot more dark and gloomy than Ziba Tower, and really get the point across that battles taking place in the Fortress will truly be 'close quarters' -- and potentially full of flashlights and laser sights! Check out the beautiful destruction and tight-teamwork in these screenshots:

Putting the screens into motion, the trailer showcases the always very good looking HD destruction from Battlefield 3, as players battle it out in Donya Fortress. Also showcased in the trailer is a new game mode called 'Conquest Domination'. DICE gave out a small summary on the new mode alongside the gameplay trailer:

You can also see the new game mode Conquest Domination in action, being a mix of the tactical classic Conquest mode and the instant action gameplay featured on these tight maps
Here's the trailer:



The key features of the upcoming "Close Quarters" DLC have also been detailed, mainly highlighting the new weapons that will be on offer. New assignments, dog tags and weapons for each kit will be available once the DLC goes live. Here's a quick rundown of the new toys:

Are Battlefield 3 fans ready for some intense, tight action with the upcoming "Close Quarters" DLC, or will these type of maps just be way too close and personal?

The "Close Quarters" DLC pack is still scheduled for a June release, but now comes with a confirmed 1200 MSP price tag.
