Set in "the shattered districts, streets and cities of post-earthquake Iran", Aftermath will introduce new weapons, vehicles and multiplayer game modes.
DICE says of the DLC: "Players will struggle for supremacy and survival amongst the devastation, with heavily modified vehicles and the all-new crossbow at their disposal.
"Battlefield 3: Aftermath features all multiplayer game modes from the base game, plus the all-new Scavenger mode. In Scavenger mode, lost soldiers start equipped with only a knife, one grenade, and sidearm and must search the environment for more powerful weapons to increase their chance at surviving and eventually winning."
Priced at $14.99, Aftermath will be released for PS3 Battlefield Premium members on November 27. Xbox 360 and PC Premium subscribers will get access on December 4, all other PS3 players on December 11, and everyone else on December 18.
