Battlefield 3: Aftermath has hidden dinosaur Easter Egg

Tuesday, 23rd October 2012 10:19 GMT By Dave Cook

Battlefield 3 players have been clamouring for – oddly enough – a dinosaur-themed expansion, ever since fans started asking DICE for it. The studio fuelled enthusiasm by asking for fan opinions. Well, it just so happens there’s a dinosaur-themed Easter Egg in upcoming expansion Aftermath.

VG247 asked producer at DICE Craig Mcleod for his thoughts on the Battlefield 3 dinosaur craze, “I’ve seen that yeah. I think each game gets it’s kind of little…quirk that players like. We understand this and actually, we do have one hidden Easter Egg which is along this theme in Aftermath.”

The Easter Egg follows tweets a while ago from the Battlefield 3 feed that asked, “No, at this time there is no word on a dinosaur DLC. Would you like one? And if so, would it be humans vs. dinosaurs?”

The game’s community manager also fanned the flames by posting on Reddit, “Glad to see the enthusiasm. Really, though, if this is something you guys want the best way to go about it is to try to get #BF3Dinos off the ground on Twitter. If that sh*t trends it’s pretty hard to ignore.”

DICE seems sort-of happy with the idea of dinosaurs in Battlefield – at least to the extent of Easter eggs. Would you like to see a humans vs dinosaurs mode in the full game? Let us know below.

Battlefield 3 Aftermath is out for Xbox 360 premium subscribers from December 4th, and non-premium members December 18th.

    Should be styled after L4D. The T-Rex is the tank.

    Tbh it’s this light-hearted fun that Battlefield needs more of, rather than the “we got the better engine!” Cock waving EA are always pushing.

    There was a PC game based on the Half Life 1 engine that had Mech Dinosaurs and Confederate style US Generals…?

    Always wanted to play that but my PC was shit at the time and now i can’t remember the name of it! :(

    Theres a bunch of Dino Easter Eggs in the Karkand pack aswell. Its been going for awhile.

    I hope to God they don’t actually act on it at all though, I have a horrible feeling that it would end up with Rage Comic camo uniforms and XD SO RANDUM humour all the way through it.

    fucking reddit.

    @5 “Tbh it’s this light-hearted fun that Battlefield needs more of”.

    Talk for yourself, I don’t want this stupid shit in a bf game. Maybe Bad Company but not Battlefield.

    If you want light-hearted fun then go play Mario Party or other party games.
