Battlefield 3 Could Be Heading to the Ice Cold Tundra

Battlefield 3 has desert, industrial, suburban, and even an island map, but one thing it’s missing is snow. Snow was a strong theme in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and many of its best levels were based in the ice cold tundra. This theme could return for its big, new brother, Battlefield 3.

Fans have wondered if any snow levels will be added to Battlefield 3 among several other requested additions. DICE took the request head-on, and commented the following:

that’s a definite possibility!

Battlefield 3 and the Frostbite 2 engine would make an excellent platform for such a level. Snowy footprints, ice shooting through the air from explosions, and misty effects permeating the air would fit well within its framework. DICE has gone on record in the past saying they plan to release additional “expansion packs” after Back to Karkand, which released earlier in the month, so it’s less a matter of if it’ll happen but how badly fans want it.
