DICE has revealed the first few details for Battlefield 3’s “Aftermath” expansion. While it doesn’t go into extensive detail, we now know the exact outline of what the DLC will contain when it’s released in December.
Here’s what the official Battlefield 3 page has to say regarding the expansion:
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.
Aside from that, they’ve also listed the DLC’s “key features.”
- 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 assignments, achievements and dog tags
Of course, the new assignments, dog tags and new maps are nothing new. What’s interesting here is the “earthquake” damaged terrain. Could this mean earthquakes happening within the maps themselves? I highly doubt it, but one could hope, no?
“Aftermath” is scheduled for release in December and as always, BF3 Premium members will get a two-week early access to the DLC.
