DICE and EA Announce three new expansion packs for Battlefield 3

Last night at GDC EA and Dice announced three new expansion packs for Battlefield 3.  Here's the run down:
  • Close Quarters - The next pack which will ship in June will be smaller, infantry focused maps (think Operation Metro) and will include 4 new maps and 10 new weapons.  PS3 owners will get the expansion pack 1 week earlier than everyone else.
  • Armored Kill - This will be a vehicle focused expansion pack that will feature very large maps and presumably new vehicles and another 4 new maps (this is an assumption on my part based on the presentation they gave last night).  No time table was given but I would expect to see this in September given the quarterly schedule of the games.
  • End Game - No details given on this one at all but this should be out around the end of the year given the quarterly schedule.
I got a chance to play one of the levels from Close Quarters last night called Ziba Tower but you'll have to come back next week to find out more details due to an embargo from EA.
