Electronic Arts removes content from Battlefield 3's Aftermath and End Game DLC

DSOGaming writes: "And here we go again. It seems that EA has removed some content from Battlefield 3′s upcoming DLC, Aftermath and End Game. According to the official BF3 Twitter account, Aftermath was supposed to include new weapons, however it has been confirmed that both Aftermath and End Game won’t feature any new weapons." (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I was hoping to get the XM8 in one of these packs.. really disappointed that we want get new weapons. But if they try to sell the guns separate, they can go f**k themselves.

They'll add it in later.
You'll be buying DLC for your DLC, one of these days.

DLC for DLC

I feel like i got scamed from all that BF3 Premium crap!!! Im never gana by another seascen pass ever!!!

EDIT....DAM! THIS JUST REMINDED ME OF, i did the same with Borderlands 2. :/
SeekDev  +   708d ago
I'm just curious, were you guaranteed all of the DLC that will ever come out for BF3 or Borderlands 2 when you purchased the season passes? I'd just like to find out what the marketing was like for these season passes, I never researched them because I didn't have the money or time for them, but it's still an interesting thought that these companies may have marketed the season pass in such a way that you thought you'd get all DLC. On the other hand, they may have made it clear that you'd only be saving on the main DLC (in the case of Borderlands 2).
kesvalk  +   708d ago
the difference is that gearbox try to make their DLC worthy.

never buy DLC from EA or Capcom, you gonna have a bad time.
onyoursistersback  +   708d ago
@SeekDev BF3, i can't remember, all i know is all clan members were gana get it (so i jumped in the sinking boat too.

And Borderlands, i didn't know it was gana have a season pass. they were promoting it on the counter on its release day. I'm 80% sure it read "All DLC" on it.
kesvalk  +   708d ago
@SeekDev dunno about BF3 but Borderlands 2 have it clear that is the first 4 expansions DLC that they were already planning for the game, DLC like the mechromancer not included.
tallkidoPL  +   709d ago
SHOCKER!!!!
not
Parappa  +   709d ago
Aftermath replaced the weapons pack with a new game mode so really only the end game DLC pack will fill empty.

I don't mind though because I got BF3 Premium for free when EA/DICE/Sony goofed.
Flandy  +   709d ago
How did they goof?
Cam977  +   709d ago
Why did they 'goof?'
aquamala  +   708d ago
for about 10 hours couple weeks ago you could get Premium for free on PS3 by going to the BF3 store on PS3, it was listed as "free". it's a glitch.

WHAT!!!!! I was really looking forward to NEW WEAPONS. EA you would really "DROP the Ball" if this happens. That was the main reason why Premium was worth the money.
andibandit  +   708d ago
Get your "Drop the ball" DLC for battlefield 3, right now. 20% off for premiim members
neonlight45  +   709d ago
Aannd ladies and gentlemen this is why you wait to see all the content before yo buy a season pass for any game.
Animal Mutha 76  +   709d ago
Quite right.

And this is why I have never and will never buy a season pass for dlc content where the quality is unknown.

It's like the devs say go on give us 40 quid and we will give you some good stuff - promise, promise wink wink, trust us would we lie to you?

I buy stuff once it is out there, reviewed and worthy of purchase.

Wow, more false advertising from game companies. Somehow I am not very surprised but I am glad I didn't buy Premium.
KONAAs  +   709d ago
i love premium, specially the 2 XP week long events, that in its self with new veicles and modes iw worth it, aint got time to reach rank 145 normal play, activision fucks u more evry year paying them for the same crap with a new paint job
ginsunuva  +   709d ago
Yeah but what's the point of reaching a high rank if you didnt fully earn it?
Animal Mutha 76  +   709d ago
Yep agree with ginsunuva. My scorecard in Blops and BF3 is pure me - no unlocks, help or other dodgy boosting - just me.

@Animal Mutha 76; So, you wont play the games when they are having double XP events? Full weeks at a time, sometimes.
Axecution  +   708d ago
@AnimalMutha

Yeah im with you man. Actually we should just ban anyone who plays on double XP weekends for boosting.

xDDDDD
Hufandpuf  +   708d ago
The Premium trailer advertised 20 new guns.

10 - Close Quarters
10 - Armor Kill

I think everyone that payed for Premium knew what they were buying.

If after people bought Premium, DICE/EA can add or change whatever was not advertised, in this case, the new guns.
Syntax-Error  +   708d ago
Are you kidding me? I knew better than to buy that shit. Two things that will never happen..I will never buy a Premium map pack and second I will buy episodic content(Walking Dead). They never release stuff on time.
KONAAs  +   708d ago
its not a cheat, every on egets double XP for a weekend, besides i play it non double XP my score pm is 928, i just have a life and i got no times to spend a boos is welcome,
stormskiier  +   709d ago
I taught myself never to buy a seasons pass for a game and am so thankful I didnt buy premium.
StrawberryDiesel420  +   709d ago
LOL I bought Elite for MW3 and got a good deal on DLC. I played, enjoyed, and got more than my time and money's worth from it. Too bad for Battlefield 3 fans, game screen tears anyway.
SJPFTW  +   709d ago
LOL only thing you got were new maps. We get new weapons, vehicles, camo, game modes etc on top of the new maps that came with it. All for the same price

And the new BF3 maps were not simply quick copy and paste jobs either

So sorry
KONAAs  +   709d ago
shhhhh. let him DREAM he gets more content than bf3 players, its a way to feel less stupid for paying for the same shit every year. think of it as buying a bluray u already have every year with a new audio commentary with a different person talking
The_KELRaTH  +   708d ago
Elite premium got their maps and shortly afterwards the map packs were available to buy at half price.

For both titles the problem stems from paying in advance. Neither titles are getting the quality of BC2 Vietnam expansion pack.

I have to say that the dlc packs for BF3 piss all over those for MW3. I bought a few of the MW packs on the cheap a while ago and they don't get as much use as BK or AK on Battlefield.
Apocwhen  +   709d ago
Didn't COD Elite premium players get ripped off?
The service was constantly broken, Operations got canceled at the last minute due to "Technical issues".

The first two collection packs went 50% off about a week after their official release meaning it actually worked out cheaper in the end to buy the DLC content separately.
KwietStorm  +   708d ago
Keep trying. You're almost there.
Rettom  +   708d ago
Too bad for Call of Duty fans, game lags anyway...
BattleAxe  +   709d ago
EA Games, where you get the least amount of value for your money. They just can't seem to figure out why Call of Duty is so popular. All they have to do is look at how much content gets released with a CoD game on day one with every single release. I've mentioned this before, but some people seem to think that because a map is bigger in Battlefield they get better value, despite the fact that BF games usually have far less maps, far less game modes, far less weapons and not to mention a far smaller community. I didn't like MW3, but I didn't get suckered into BF3, and I'm not going to get suckered into MoH.

hmm bf3 dlc= new maps, new game modes, new veicles, new weapons, new assingments, new cammos, new dogtags, COD= same maps, cut and past, no new weapons, all maps feel the same, hmm wonder what has more content for the money?......
BX81  +   709d ago
Hmm
Let's be honest here. Even if you don't like COD, it has more content straight out of the box than BF3. I do think BF3 is a better game and more fun to play.
2v1  +   708d ago
one thing tho , last MoH suck for me but this BF3 is very good.and one other thing is no small community,there is always ppl online playing, im talking about full servers 24/7

blahhhh i dont care for the new weapons, besides every one uses the same guns all the time, first the usas 12, then the m26 dart, then the p2000, the pdw-r, famas, and now the m5k, so whats the point of new guns?>> we got plenty, get 5 stars on each then ask for more guns
Pillsbury1  +   709d ago
I really think EA are trying to piss off customers and they don't care. If they start charging for weapon dl that would be the last straw. I don't buy EA products for that reason but I love battlefield.
vortis  +   708d ago
Charging for weapon downloads? How about charging for bullets and reloads...

Im a premium member and havent even played the new maps yet... BF3 on consoles = boring with its 24 player cap on the huge maps they give us.
2v1  +   708d ago
well i dont have premium and dont have money for pc , i use a laptop to play edgeworld ,i can play bf3 whit 24 players and is fun.

Zha1tan
the geme is not still broken with lag & latency issues,if you join a server whit low latency of course you going to lag,thats why they show the bar on the server screen, just join a server whit full bars dude
WitWolfy  +   707d ago
What has that got to do with Battlefield 3 on 360/PS3? The only fun maps to play on BF 3 are the close quarters maps.. and 2 or 3 of the vanilla maps.

EA kinda screwed up BF3 on the consoles this time around.. The maps are just TOO big for the consoles compared to the 24 player cap.

And this is why I cant be bothered to play BF3 anymore, average at best gameplay with overpriced DLC.

All while the game is still broken with lag & latency issues.
krazykombatant  +   708d ago
lol your full of shit, plenty of ps3 and x360 players that i talk to on the forums don't suffer from lag or over the top latency issues. Not everyone has a pristine network connection.

brb on virgin media 50mb
brb no packet loss
brb under 20ms ping every game I go into

Still dying after getting into solid cover
Still getting insta one shotted that is not a headshot
Still people warping when they jump over cover
Animations are still lagging.

lol BF3 fanboys the worst of the worst trying to defend yet another broken watered down simplistic and boring EA product.

DICE were a good developer but its debatable if they are even allowed a say anymore.

This is so irritating, i bought premium to get more content (vehicles, maps AND weapons) The advert on the battlelog website clearly said we would be getting new weapons with these packs which is why i spent the money on premium. Dammit EA, don't you realize that leaving a bad taste in your customers mouth will eventually cause them to spit you out.
MasterD919  +   708d ago
EA is terrible. Period.

I bought premium because it was the same price as getting the three current dlcs. Also i get the next to when they release right?

But i agree, you cannot advertise something and change the rules once you have taken the money.

I guess this is what I get for buying premium in the heat of the moment *sigh... feeling some serious buyers remorse right now :'-(
glennco  +   708d ago
big deal. typical media looking for some controversy. there are plenty of guns in the damn game already.
Pillsbury1  +   708d ago
This is not about having too many guns it's about the fact that EA are greedy whores that they will remove content that was promised.
