Battlefield 3 Exclusive Aftermath Details

Battlefield 3 Exclusive Aftermath Details

PWNED cornered DICE and broke them down for info on the Aftermath

Written by Ashley Woodcock (Dat Boi Treezy) on 21 November 12 at 12:24

Matt and the gorgeous Sion from PWNED, EA's gaming talk show, have managed to get a delicious inside-scoop of details on DICE's upcoming expansion for their extremely popular first-person shooter, Battlefield 3. "Aftermath" has already been smothered, covered, and detailed previously when the premier trailer was released. We know that the setting of this DLC pack is based on one of the earlier missions of the campaign where an earthquake sends part of the city into destructive and deadly chaos. Thanks to an interview with DICE's Niklas Fegraeus, more footage and details have now ben revealed for the upcoming "Aftermath" DLC.

Niklas goes into details regarding all four maps included in the pack. Markaz Monolith is set in a devastated financial district. A huge building, which has managed to survive the worst the earthquake has dished out, offers some intense vertical action in the centre of this map. Seeing even more damage from the earthquake is Epicentre, another part of the city that contains plenty of wide-open roads and a very dangerous crossroad.

Heading more towards the outside of the city, Talah Market mixes up the buildings and structures with a mix of old and new architecture. Last, but certainly not least, Azadi Palace provides more battling outdoors with plenty more destroyed landscape, and also a parliament building in which players can take the fight up close and personal to their opponents. Check out the video and enjoy!



Looks like we'll still have to be very patient for any Battlefield 4 news if Sian couldn't even get anything out of Niklas!

Battlefield 3's "Aftermath" DLC expansion will be shattering the grounds for Premium members on December 4th for free. Those who don't own a Premium membership can take part in the upcoming destroyed glory on December 18th for a price tag of 1200 MSP.

I really enjoy playing BF3 with my friends and I can hardly wait for this. ( Did you expect any sarcastic or CoD Fanboy comment here? )

Still need to pick up all expansions save Karkand. But I got that at half-off. I'll just wait for these to eventually find their way to half-off as DotW. Would prefer it over getting Premium.

What a great way to start my day, thanks for the news Dat Boi Treezy!

I wish there was more gameplay footage but I'm still happy with what I saw, it gives me a good idea about what to expect with this dlc. These maps looks awesome as always and pretty big too. I could be wrong but from my observations of the video I'm guessing that these maps are about the size of Strike at Karkand, which is perfect for consoles.

I'm still not sure about the crossbow, I have a feeling that this weapon will be overpowered, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Would prefer it over getting Premium.Premium is 25 at target i think on black friday...you might as well do thatI normally don't deal with Black Friday deals. I personally feel it's too much of a hassle. And if it's counting this expansion and the other 2 I missed, and if I were to get it at the same price as BtK, then it's slightly cheaper to get the DLC separate than to get Premium.(7.50 as DotW, 22.50 for all 3, compared to 25 and tax for Premium). Which is ironic because my normal mentality for DLC is that I'll want a GOTY/Ultimate Edition so that I have all DLC on a disc. Also, I'm too broke for Black Friday this time around.

I haven't unlocked Claymores, and if I have I have no idea how to equip them. Ive played the game like 5 times since buying it. My point being is that, give me a gun and you can PWN anyone, tis not a hard game at all.

Battlefield 3 multiplayer is awesome, so gotta get back to it soon. Although it was waaaay better in the beginning when fights were raging back and forth, and not just one team raping the other one
Happy to boost for any achievement I don't have!
