If you’ve been keeping up with the Battlefield 3 rumors lately, you’ll most likely have heard about the $30 price tag that was recently said to be slapped on DICE’s upcoming Battlefield 3: Close Quarters DLC.
This all began when Gamefanshop.com listed Close Quarters at $29.99, most likely by mistake. This, of course, alerted much of the BF3 community as most expansion packs from DICE have typically been released at the $15 price range, including the latest Back to Karkand DLC, and before that, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam.
However, according to a Close Quarters fact sheet brought to our attention by reader Rubén Santana (thanks, Rubén), EA officially lists the following information about Close Quarters:
- Publisher: Electronic Arts
- Developer: DICE
- Formats: PlayStation® 3, Xbox 360®, PC
- Release: June 2012 (1 week early access on PlayStation®3)
- Players: 2-16
- Rating: ESRB Mature 17+ / PEGI 16
- MSRP: $14.99 USD for PlayStation 3 and PC, 1200 MS Points
That’s more like it, right? It looks like Battlefield 3 fans can rest easy, for now.
Also, remember that though you can buy the individual expansion pack separately, DICE will most likely be giving fans the opportunity to save a bit of cash with the rumored Battlefield Premium service, said to pack in a number of expansions and other content.
