EA Offering Battlefield 3 Close Quarters DLC For Free!
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
EA seem to pursuing a strategy to improve their image recently. First they listened to customer feedback over online passes for multiplayer games and scrapped those, now they are offering free stuff to people – that’s right FREE stuff from EA, who’d of thought?
Electronic Arts are teaming up with DICE to offer all Battlefield 3 owners a free copy of the Close Quarters DLC if you don’t already have it. Essentially Close Quarters is Battlefield’s attempt and bringing in a more traditional style of FPS combat that is fought at close range, in buildings with a high density of players. Furthermore it introduces new weapons and game modes, such as Gun Game, over the standard version of Battlefield 3.
To redeem the free PC copy of Battlefield 3 Close Quarters you must already own Battlefield 3 on Origin and you must not already own Close Quarters (obviously). You can gain access to the free DLC you need to use the code “BF3E3” in the Origin client under the redeem a code section. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners will be able to download the Close Quarters DLC from the in-game store for free.
The deal lasts until June 18th or 19th depending on your region or platform, you can see more details here.
I can confirm this does work and I have personally been playing Battlefield 3 Close Quarters for the past few days. I might add that the Close Quarters DLC maps seem to be incredibly buggy with lag being prevalent, knifing issues occuring and just general glitches everywhere, it almost reminds me of the Battlefield 3 open beta again but hey it’s free so you can’t complain that much. I just feel sorry for people who bought this recently.
