OXCGN’s Battlefield 3: Aftermath Review

Breaking new ground?

Battlefield-3-aftermath-coverEven after a year of release, DICE‘s Battlefield 3 continues to maintain a strong and healthy player base.

I myself have spent an ungodly amount of time with the game, racked up my fair share of kills, and had some fun times playing together with mates.

Personally, I feel that Premium, more precisely the expansions, have been key to the longevity and success of BF3.

Sure, the whole concept and execution of Premium has been debated before, and no doubt continues to be a hot topic among online gamers, but this sort of model seems to be the future of DLC map packs and expansions.

With that, the fourth and latest expansion for BF3 has been released, titled Aftermath.

The new expansion provides new maps, vehicles, as well as a new game mode and weapon for players to experience. It also allows me to make really bad Earthquake-related puns throughout this review. Continue reading OXCGN’s Battlefield 3: Aftermath Review

Let me say this straight out of the gate: this is what Battlefield 3 should have been from the beginning.

Armored Kill is the latest DLC, developed and released by DICE and EA.

Whereas the previous DLC, Close Quarters, focused on tight infantry-based fighting, Armored Kill goes in the opposite direction, focusing on vehicular warfare in large environments.

Is the newest Battlefield 3 expansion worth your time?

A Solid Start

Battlefield Premium looks to reward players heavily invested in Battlefield 3 and is the start of a vigorous post-launch campaign, granting content to players that ranges from access to new weapons to character and weapon customization, and even assignments.

Not only do those who bite the Premium bullet gain the aforementioned content, but in addition, they earn early access to new maps and game types.

Close Quarters is the first of the scheduled DLC packs available to Premium members, changing up the gameplay of Battlefield 3 from large scale, open warfare to tight corridors, small rooms and a plethora of planted claymores and shotguns.

It introduces players to four new maps as well as two new game types, both of which offer players a fresh experience in this modern shooter.
