Following up its first download expansion Back to Karkand, DICE today revealed plans to bring three more expansions to Battlefield 3.

Coming this June a week earlier on PlayStation 3, Close Quarters focuses on tight infantry battles with smaller maps and includes 10 more weapons.

The third expansion is called Armored Kill and is due out this fall. DICE says its all about the vehicle experiences and it has the largest multiplayer map the developer has ever created.

The final expansion reveled is called End Game, but DICE is not talking about it at all right now. It's due out this winter. Pricing detailes for these expansions were not announced.

“Instead of delivering piecemeal map packs, we’re giving players a completely new experience with every themed expansion pack to keep the action fresh," said Patrick Bach, Executive Producer on Battlefield 3. "Our expansions are designed to excite our large and active fan base while attracting new recruits with gameplay that is dynamic and unpredictable every time.”

Battlefield 3 continues to be a massive success for EA. To date, the publisher has shipped 12 million copies of the game since February.
