Battlefield 3 Aftermath, the fourth digital expansion pack for Battlefield 3, is now available for all Premium members on the Xbox 360 and PC via the in-game store. Non Premium members will have to wait until December 18 to access this expansion pack.


Battlefield 3: Aftermath provides a new brand of carnage to urban combat delivering four new maps in a vertical and horizontal setting, depicting a continuing struggle for supremacy and survival amongst Iran's post-earthquake devastation. G4TV even said "DICE continues to play with Battlefield 3's multiplayer action in creative ways with its downloadable content releases. Aftermath is shaping up to be the most unique of the bunch by far."

Enjoy this exclusive 360-HQ video clip recorded while playing the new Aftermath DLC on Xbox LIVE. The level shown in this clip is named "Markaz Monolith", one of my favorites in the new map pack, which has the Little Bird AH-6J Scout Helicopter on it.

EA and DICE have announced that Battlefield 3: Aftermath, the fourth downloadable expansion pack for Battlefield 3, will be available for premium members to download on December 4th on both the Xbox 360 and PC. PS3 premium players gain access November 27th.


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.

Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Update/Patch Arrives Tomorrow

Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Update/Patch Arrives Tomorrow
Published by: forahobby on Monday, September 03, 2012
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox Live,

DICE announced today that the next multiplayer update for Battlefield 3 goes live with lots of tweaks, fixes and load balancing tomorrow September 4th.


There will first be a small (184MB) Title Update automatically downloaded when you start the game. When restarting the game, you will get a popup notifying you that Multiplayer Update 4 is available. It is not mandatory to accept this, but we advise you to do so. Otherwise, you can find Multiplayer Update 4 both on Xbox Live Marketplace and in our in-game store as a manual download.

Battlefield 3: Armored Kill, the third expansion pack for Battlefield 3 will be available for Premium Members on Xbox LIVE and PC in North America on September 11 and in Europe September 13. PS3 premium members get access to Armored Kill September 4th.

Battlefield 3 Premium members get 2 weeks early access to Armored Kill as well as Battlefield 3: Aftermath coming this December and Battlefield 3: End Game coming in March of 2013. Check out the full change list just below.

WEAPONS BALANCING



Reload timer adjustments
A number of weapons have had their reload timers adjusted to better fit their animations and gameplay balance. For most of these weapons the gameplay timers were slightly out of sync with the actual reload animation, meaning the player could either fire before the animation was done, or had to wait longer than the animation played. Primarily this is a cosmetic change (around 0.1sec); however for a few weapons (M416, F2000, FAMAS, KH2002, MK3A1, JNG90, MG36 QBU-88, SVD, Pecheneg, SCAR-H, AN-94) this should also improve the performance of the weapon. Full details below:
  • Short and Long reload reduced: SCAR-L, AEK-971, F2000, AN-94, AK-74, PP2000, G3A3, SKS, MG36, JNG-90, MK3A1, SCAR-H, SVD, QBZ-95B
  • Long reload reduced: AUG A3, 44 Magnum, KH2002, Pecheneg, L85A2, QBB-95, M1911, MP7
  • Short reload reduced: M417, FAMAS, M39 EBR, M416, PP-19, QBU-88
  • Short and long reload increased: ASVal
  • Long reload reduced, shot reload increased: M4A1
  • Long reload increased: P90

Damage output/range adjustments
  • UMP: Increased the close range damage of the UMP but reduced its damage over range. The UMP now has a sweet spot in CQB but suffers compared to the PP2000 at longer ranges.
  • PP2000: Increased the long range damage of the PP2000 to highlight its role as a mid-range, low recoil PDW.
  • M1911: Increased the minimum damage of the M1911 to make it fit better between the Magnums and the M9/MP443
  • M93: Reduced the M93R’s damage and range, as it was an obvious go to pistol compared to the M9/MP443. Its recoil has been reduced for a smoother burst action to counter the reduced damage.
  • 12G Frag rounds: These rounds have been adjusted to do their damage in a smaller area but to be more consistently apply the maximum possible damage.
  • AA: Slightly increased the damage of the AA against infantry, the AA was simply over nerfed in a previous update. The AA guns now also properly do damage to MBTs again.
  • 12 Gauge buckshot close range damage has been slightly increased.
  • Slightly reduced the range penalty for the suppressor on the SCAR-H.
  • Increased bullet velocity for the coaxial HMG, making it easier to hit targets over longer ranges.
  • Increased the minimum range of the 40mm Flechette and tightened the cone of fire for more consistent damage levels.
  • Slightly reduced the range bonus added by the heavy barrel on the 5.56mm, 5.45mm, 6.5mm Assault Rifles.
  • Slightly reduced the range penalty for the suppressor on 5.56mm, 5.45mm, and 6.5mm weapons: AR, Carbine, and LMG.
  • Slightly reduced the range penalty for the suppressor on the SCAR-H.
  • Slightly reduced the range penalty for the suppressor on 5.56mm, 5.45mm, and 6.5mm weapons: AR, Carbine, and LMG.
  • Slightly reduced the range bonus added by the heavy barrel on the 5.56mm, 5.45mm, 6.5mm Assault Rifles.
  • Increased the damage of the M5K.

A select set of weapons have had their recoil adjusted based on joint community feedback and statistical analysis to provide greater balance in the weapon choices players make. Specifically, the M16A3 and M4A1 have increased recoil to make them less attractive in all situations. Competing weapons like the SG553, G36C and M416 have been improved to also increase viable player choice in primary weapons.
