Battlefield 3: Aftershock releases silently on iOS
Is a tie-in with Act of Valor.
Electronic Arts has finally released Battlefield 3: Aftershock on iOS, the promised first person shooter for Apple devices that would feature bleeding edge technology with both ‘immersive’ single player and multiplayer campaigns.
It, however, has nothing of that sort apparently. It is a tie-in with the upcoming movie Act of Valor – which features actual NAVY SEALS officers, by the way – thus making the game free of charge.
The game has multiplayer with three weapons and an unlockable if you watch the trailer for Act of Valor. As reported by players on the App Store, the game is buggy with glitchy controls. My quick playthrough was no different – on one instance I emptied multiple clips on a player who appeared to be unable to move. Instead of finally rewarding me a kill, the game just decided to boot the player out.
Aftershock appears to be a beta rushed off to have it out the door. If you are still interested in playing it, you can get it off the App Store now. It’s a 287mb download.
