DICE and EA have revealed the first details of the fourth Battlefield 3 expansion pack, Aftermath.
The expansion pack will be “set amongst the shattered districts, streets and surrounding villages of a post-earthquake Tehran Battlefield 3: Aftermath depicts a continuing struggle for supremacy and survival amongst the devastation,” reads Battlefield 3’s Aftermath official promotional page, as it was announced at E3.
DICE added, “With operational capacity severely compromised the opposing forces must adapt and engage in vertical and horizontal urban combat amongst the dust and rubble with cracks and fissures in the terrain providing unexpected cover and paths to objectives. Additional support comes in the form of heavily modified troop transports and civilian vehicles specially adapted to deliver deadly force to the enemy.”

- New heavily modified military and civilian vehicles – ingenuity and firepower combined

Update 2: When asked if Armored Kill will include new weapons, the official Battlefield Twitter account stated, “No, the Armored Kill will not include weapons. New weapons will come with Aftermath.”
Aftermath is expected to release in December 2012 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
