Map packs are a funny business. If you're engrossed in a game's multiplayer, and embedded in the community, it's a massive event. If not? It's difficult to justify the cost and the whole thing sort of feels a bit like a rip-off. For example, I can't muster any enthusiasm for Battlefield 3: Aftermath, but our designer Ben White -- who lives for Battlefield 3? At the mention of the word 'aftermath' he started hyperventilating.
"Oh my god it has an earthquake," was the first thing he said, once he caught his breath. "It's going to be awesome."
The above trailer does its level best to explain the awesome through the medium of people shooting each other to pulsing rhythmic music.
Battlefield 3: Aftermath is set for release tomorrow on PSN, and December 2 for everyone else.
