Battlefield 3: Aftermath will launch on November 27 for PlayStation 3 Battlefield Premium users, developer DICE announced today. The content releases a week later on December 4 for Xbox 360 and PC Premium users, and launches for all PS3 players December 11. Xbox 360 and PC gamers without a Premium subscription can get in on the action December 18.
The content is free with a $50 Battlefield Premium subscription, and will also be available as a $15 standalone download.
Aftermath adds four new multiplayer maps set in the streets and cities of a post-earthquake Iran. Additionally, the content brings a new game mode called Scavenger. Gamers who play this mode begin a round with only a knife, one grenade, and a sidearm, and must scour the terrain for more powerful weapons to get the upper hand on their enemies.
The Aftermath content also brings a new weapon, the crossbow, to players' arsenals. Additional achievements, assignments, and vehicles are also up for grabs in the new add-on.
Battlefield 3: Aftermath is the game's fourth of five planned expansions. It follows Back to Karkand, Close Quarters, and Armored Kill, and precedes the final expansion, the suitably named End Game.
