DICE & EA have now confirmed details for the fourth Battlefield 3 expansion pack Aftermath, With the setting being in a post earthquake environment.

“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.” states Battlefields official promotional page

“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.”

Looks like we’re going to see some civilian vehicles with some added firepower in this expansion.

  • 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

Born and raised in Coventry City UK, Matthew has been typing longer than he's been writing and the internet has become his playground. Having a penchant for the darker side of literature and mythology, Matthew satisfied his curiosity by devouring almost every book and article on ancient civilizations and Gods he could get his ink stained little hands on. This interest in the esoteric eventually led Matt into Comics, first with Neil Gaiman's fantastic Sandman series and eventually into becoming a living encyclopedia on all things DCU. These days you can find this keyboard warrior utilizing his insane skills as an elite sniper on Battlefield 3, listening to the cries of noobs as they run into his patient sights.
