Oh, the destruction.

EA Games and DICE have released a new trailer for Battlefield 3's upcoming downloadable expansion, "Close Quarters." As the name implies, this new set of multiplayer maps will trade in the large-scale landscapes and vehicles for narrow passageways and tons of choke points. 

The below trailer specifically highlights a map called "Donya Fortress" in a Conquest Domination match. This is probably as close as Battlefield will ever get to mirroring the fast and frantic gameplay of the Call of Duty franchise. We're not sure how we feel about that. But then again, diversity is the spice of life. So we're reserving judgment until we actually try out Battlefield 3's "Close Quarters" DLC, which releases on PC and Xbox 360 this June for $14.99 (1200 MS Points), and a week earlier on PlayStation 3. 

Lastly, you really have to hand it to DICE, as they sure know how to make destruction look awesome. You agree?
