Update: For Xbox 360 users, going to “My Soldier” in the main menu should prompt a message to appear stating, “Congratulations. You have unlocked Battlefield 3 Close Quarters.” From this point on, I was able to join and play Close Quarters matches.
Battlefield 3’s latest DLC Close Quarters “has been propped for Premium Users” on the Xbox 360 according to DICE global community manager Daniel Matros. This means it should slowly be rolling out, most likely region by region, to all Battlefield 3 Premium owners on the Xbox 360. If it has not appeared in the in-game store yet, where players must go in order to download the expansion pack, it should shortly.
So, far only a few PC users have reported troubles accessing the Close Quarters DLC, but for the most part, it should also now be available to all Battlefield 3 Premium PC users.
Non-Premium PlayStation 3 users can expect Close Quarters to drop June 18th while non-Premium Xbox 360 and PC users can look forward to its release on June 26th.
