Trouble In The Rubble
EA and DICE have blown the lid off Battlefield 3's Aftermath expansion, which will take place in the aftermath (ooh, now I get it) of a devastating earthquake in Tehran. Expect four new urban maps, modified civilian vehicles and ravaged terrain that should provide new tactical opportunities.
The official website is now live - so here are the details directly from the horse's mouth.
Set amongst the shattered districts, streets and surrounding villages of a post-earthquake Tehran Battlefield 3: Aftermath depicts a continuing struggle for supremacy and survival amongst the devastation.
With operational capacity severely compromised the opposing forces must adapt and engage in vertical and horizontal urban combat amongst the dust and rubble with cracks and fissures in the terrain providing unexpected cover and paths to objectives.
Additional support comes in the form of heavily modified troop transports and civilian vehicles specially adapted to deliver deadly force to the enemy.
- Urban warfare on four new maps
- Fight through the dust and rubble, use the earthquake damaged terrain to your tactical advantage
- New heavily modified military and civilian vehicles – ingenuity and firepower combined
- New game mode
- New weapons
- New assignments, achievements and dog tags
Aftermath has been pegged for a December release, and will naturally be available early to Premium subscribers.
