Back at the beginning of the month we asked you what sort of new maps you would like to see in any future DLC releases for Battlefield 3. It has been a while now since Back for Karkland was released and now it seems that Battlefield 3 may get a US based DLC release.
While gamers wait for the next DLC installment an article over at MP1ST is reporting of an interesting rumor that has come via TheAustrianToast. Sources are reportedly claiming that there will be an all American DLC with maps based on US city locations.
These are rumored to include San Francisco, New York City, Miami, and New Jersey. You have to remember though these are currently rumors, and the sources were never revealed but they there is a good chance these will be accurate. If you look at the Back to Karkland maps they were all based on various cities in the Middle East.
It also seems to be an ongoing theme with Battlefield 3 with various environments within city limits, which compares to Battlefield: Bad Company 2 that had more open environments. It would make perfect sense for DICE to continue this theme, and the Frostbite 2 engine does this really well.
The sources later claimed that any all American DLC download should be available anytime from the beginning of the summer. DICE has previously mentioned that they wasn’t into releasing map packs, and instead offer expansions.
This could mean something similar to the Back to Karkland expansion that added new assignments, vehicles, and new weapons. DICE has also considered using a snow-themed expansion that some users have wanted since Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
