I only just played through BF3's single player this weekend. So now i actually know what the post earthquake setting is all about haha.

I look forward to the setting but i will bebored of this in days as it lacks new weapons. Crossbow yadda yadda black ops bla bla bla. Thats just a gimick. I wanted older weapons which would fit the theme. Maybe some old surplus weapons as the soldiers more modern ones were damaged, lost, destroyed or simply out of ammo during the event. I imagines some old K98's, AK-47's, Uzi's, Enfields etc. Old weapons you would find in the region from past conflicts.

Morbidly dissapointed at the lack of weapons TBH. I have now finished all existing weapon assignments. Pissed off that I bought premium under that pretense.

Mneh. I'll get bored pretty fast as a result probably. I would not buy this DLC if i hadnt already bought premium.

Loving the look of the Marketplace. It has a real CS feel to it which couple with BF3 action will be a deadly combination!

It SAVAGE. Rise from the ashes of the enemy. Of course there is a crossbow. The battlefield is that of a barbarian culture

Given that they're urban maps, I'd say no smaller than Grand Bazaar and not much bigger than Strike at Karkand would be decent sized.

New game mode sounds awesome. Wonder what the size of the maps will be, hope there not too small.
Yeah same. But i also hope they are not too big. I have stopped playing Armored Kill because the maps are about twice as big as they should be for us console guys with limited players.

I'd like to see maps on the same scale as Operation Firestorm or Caspain Border. No larger.

Crossbows? Sigh......

Talk about gimmicky.....I'd much rather prefer a proper weapon instead of a daft novelty.

Im not so bothered about the addition of a crossbow, but it does seem to have been added at the expense of any other weapons. THAT does annoy me.

I like the decontructed post disaster look of it all though.

Is it me, or does the trailer suggest a new offline campaign?
No. It' just using the multiplayer character models (sans helmets) and stylizing the gameplay.

I am disappoint in a crossbow, though. There are plenty of weapons in Battlefield already. I think adding it is kind of gimmicky.

New vehicles, always nice.
New crossbow, would have liked more new weapons...but crossbow is definitely a pleasant surprise.

Excitement level: 8.5

Could rise to 9.5 if the maps are awesome, which if 'urban warfare' is anything to go by, they will be!
