Those anticipating the arrival Battlefield 3 DLC known as Aftermath will be pleased to know that DICE has recently announced the BF3 Aftermath release date for each platform and PlayStation 3 Premium members will be glad to know they are first up. Starting at the end of next month through December the Battlefield 3 DLC will be obtainable in the run up to Christmas, which is ideal for those of you who want to spend the holiday season playing this popular title.
In addition, a new Battlefield 3: Aftermath trailer has been shown on various websites, which looks pretty impressive. Highlighting the Battlefield 3 DLC release dates Daily Video Game Deals also show the BF3 Aftermath premiere trailer along with an Amazon price list of Battlefield 3 Premium Edition copies. The downloadable content will be accessible for PlayStation 3 Premium members on the 27th of November, and the Xbox 360 and PC Premium members will get theirs on the 4th of December.

Eurogamer also report on the BF3 DLC release dates and informs readers that Aftermath is free for Premium subscribers, although everyone else is expected to pay around $14.99. Not all of the new aspects are not shown in the Battlefield 3: Aftermath trailer, and Eurogamer mention a new crossbow weapon as well as Scavenger game mode, along with new assignments and new achievements across four new maps set on the streets of Iran after an earthquake. Apparently, there are also new heavily modified vehicles in this eagerly awaited Battlefield 3 DLC.
Last week we spoke about recent reports of content that has been removed for the new Battlefield 3 DLC, which concerns both Aftermath and End Game weapons being taken out. This comes from an official Twitter account and those expecting new weapons may be disheartened by this news. Prior to this, we also mentioned the Battlefield 3 enhancement mod, which makes enemies more visible. Even though many gamers feel that a splash of color in titles like Battlefield 3 would make the game more visually appealing, this does actually highlight opponents, so this is regarded as cheating by DICE and they intend to issue permanent bans for those using this.
Are you a PS3 owner glad that your console is getting the Battlefield 3: Aftermath DLC first? What are your views on the removed content?
