Battlefield 3: Aftermath trailer confirms release date, crossbows, new ‘Scavenger’ mode

EA has released a trailer for Battlefield 3: Aftermath, the latest upcoming DLC for the military shooter. The new pack drops players into a post-earthquake Tehran. Aftermath will introduce crossbows (crossbows are so hot right now) and ‘Scavenger’ mode, which throws lost soldiers into the fray with a knife, a single grenade, and a sidearm, forcing them to improve their chances of survival/winning by scavenging the environment (which, judging by the trailer, looks susceptible to aftershocks) for better weapons. Aftermath will also include four new maps.

Check the trailer:

Aftermath has a bunch of various release dates, but if you’ve got Battlefield 3 Premium for PS3, then you’ll be getting it first. Here’s the confirmed release date schedule:

PlayStation 3 Premium members: November 27
Xbox 360 and PC Premium members: December 4
PlayStation 3 players: December 11
Xbox 360 and PC players: December 18

As well as being included as part of Battlefield 3: Premium, Aftermath will be available separately for $14.99 (UK price tbc).

    Love this game! Best one yet! My most favorite part is the guns. I just got an M4 like in the game here and they have a bunch of other guns like in all the other FPS games too!

    I liked BF3 DLC when it actually added guns. A crossbow is not a gun. A crossbow seems like a really bad attempt pandering, but that just may be paranoia and they really just don't want to put any new games into the game because they've ran out of ideas.

    Just wish they'd fix the damn glitches plaguing the game since launch day. Kind of excited though.
