With the third Battlefield 3 expansion not even out yet; Armored Kill is due for release in September, details have nonetheless trickled down the vine regarding the fourth expansion for the game; Aftermath.
The blurb on the official site says:
“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.”
Hear that? Civilian vehicles. Yep, i’ll take that as a confirmation that the Camaros from Battlefield 2 are back – that’ll do nicely thanks.
Other factoids pertaining to the fourth expansion are that it will have four new maps that will take place across a great deal of destroyed terrain, new military and modified civilian vehicles, a mysterious new game mode and of course plenty of new assignments, achievements and dog tags.
Whilst this sudden influx of information is most welcome, doesn’t strike you as a tad premature? Given the fact that the expansion is still five months away? No? It doesn’t strike you as strange?
Must just be me then.
Battlefield 3: Aftermath is due out sometime this December for PC, 360 and PS3 platforms. Battlefield Premium members get access to the expansion for free and two weeks early.
