iOS Battlefield 3 released for free

EA’s made a bit of a surprise release today; Battlefield 3: Aftershock is now available for iPad and iPhone via the App Store. For free.

The quiet release may be telling though, as it’s not being received all too kindly. The game appears to be missing previously promised features, plus users are noticing shoddy controls.

The price of $0 is explained by it advertising Act of Valor, the upcoming flick starring active duty SEALs. Watching a trailer rewards players with a weapon unlock, and there are ads for it throughout the game.

You can give it a go here.
