Close Quarters is the latest piece of Battlefield 3 Downloadable Content that will have BF3 fans rush into the heat of battle (literally). Having players scramble into enclosed battles this time around than the normal battle scale they’re used to seeing. Will Close Quarters have you engaged in these close encounters or, will you just return back to the front lines?
I will say this right now, those looking to be engaged in these intense moments that are filled with plenty of action and danger around every corner then keep on reading, for those not looking for a similar kind of play-style, move towards the bottom of this review unless you’d like to hear what I have to say about Close Quarters. With the releases of expansion packs from DICE, Close Quarters is an excellent addition to Battlefield that stays true to its core gameplay, while changing up some of the pacing we’re normally used to seeing in Battlefield’s multiplayer. Being a whole new extension of the core multiplayer, Close Quarters provide’s all players with new exciting content that enables players to strike on their targets a lot quicker this time around setting up for some fire fights to happen almost at any given moment.
What you can expect in Close Quarters is four new maps, two new gamemodes, ten new assignments as well as ten new guns that can be carried over into the original multiplayer. These new maps feature a more engaging aspect of Battlefield 3′s combat and provide a lot more action while in these enclosed spaces. The four new maps included are Ziba Tower (which is the most popular map within the expansion), Donya Fortress, Operation 925 (which has the most destructibility in Close Quarters), and Scrapmetal. Each map has advantages compared to the others; Scrapmetal for instance, is a vertical type of map leading players indoors and outdoor through many different entrances that take players up and down this factory to get to firefight’s faster.
Overall for DICE’s second expansion pack it feels similar in a sense of “Call of Duty” similar, yet it’s still the Battlefield we’ve all been loving so far. With the high rush that many will find once they start playing Close Quarters, some won’t probably want to return back to the original game modes were used to playing already. It’s fun, games run quick and the amount of action in here is enough to satisfy anyone looking to get their CQC on.
Close Quarters is available now on PSN for $14.99, it’s also available as a part of Battlefield 3′s Premium package which cost’s around $49.99 and includes exclusive content as well as all upcoming DLC.
