A handful of screenshots concerning Battlefield 3‘s fifth DLC pack are making the rounds. The images suggest that there will be an obscene amount of dirt biking involved, and players can look forward to riding pillion as they launch RPGs left and right with reckless abandon.
The expansion will include two new AA vehicles and a dropship to ferry troops through the air and onto objectives. Four new maps will be added to the rotation, each one inspired by the four seasons and “all designed for high speed combat”.
Series veterans will also be pleased to see the return of the Capture the Flag and Air Superiority game modes, and achievement junkies can satisfy their fix with new Assignments, Achievements and Dog Tags to unlock.
Admittedly, the screens are rather tame compared to the frenetic, action-saturated gameplay premieres of the Capture the Flag and Air Superiority game modes, but sometimes it’s nice to sit back and take in the view without someone jumping in front of you, waving their knife in your face.
Battlefield 3: End Game will be $14.99 or 1200 MS Points, and is available March 2013.
