EA pulls Battlefield 3: Aftershock from App Store

Posted on Thursday, February 23 2012 @ 19:03:09 CET by


Last week EA published Battlefield 3: Aftershock, a free game for Apple's iOS devices. Unfortunately, the game turned out to be a miserable failure, it's so glitchy to the point of being unplayable that EA decided to erase the app from the App Store.
To be fair, the game was free, but people have, for better or worse, come to expect that even free apps will actually work. The open battlefields and vehicles that have come to define the seminal series were nowhere to be seen here. Instead, Aftershock tried and failed - quite miserably - to be a basic multiplayer shooter.

Despite bearing the Battlefield name, the game was actually more of a tie-in for the upcoming film, Act of Valor. Part of the 'gameplay' involved forcing players to watch trailers of the movie in order to unlock the support class in the game. It's worth noting that EA's promotion of the film also extends to Aftershock's bigger and much, much better brother, Battlefield 3 proper. By visiting a special site and watching a trailer for the film will unlock a few new dogtags for you to use in game.
