While we still get used to the ins and outs of the third Battlefield 3 expansion ‘Armored Kill’, the guys at Electronic Arts and DICE are already readying themselves to unleash the expansion Battlefield 3 Aftermath to the gaming public. To start proceedings, they’ve released the official premiere trailer for Aftermath and we have plenty to look forward too, including a brand new game mode and umm …. a new Scoped Crossbow!
Set in the shattered districts, streets and villages of a post-earthquake Iran, Battlefield 3 Aftermath depicts a continuing struggle for supremacy and survival amongst the devastation. With operational capacity severely compromised, players will fight through the dust and rubble in a vertical and horizontal urban combat setting.
Aftermath will roll out this November 27th for PlayStation 3 Premium members, and slowly make it to other platforms throughout December. The expansion will ship with four maps, featuring streets and cities of a post-earthquake Iran, with two confirmed so far as Epicenter(shown in trailer) and Markaz Monolith.
We will also see a new game mode with Aftermath in Scavenger Mode, which really speaks for itself. Soldiers will be thrust into one of the four maps with only a pistol, and will need to search the map for more powerful weapons to survive. If you end up finding the Scoped Crossbow, which is the newest weapon to the growing Battlefield 3 armory, then you’re in luck, as it comes with 4 different types of ammunition and looks really sick!
We also have three new vehicles, ten new assignments, ten new dog tags, and five achievements/trophies to look forward too. We can expect the expansion to rollout at the same price as previous packs at $14.99 on PlayStation 3 and PC, and 1200 Microsoft points on Xbox 360.
