Battlefield 3 'Back to Karkand' Hits In December

The first expansion pack for Battlefield 3 will hit in December, EA confirmed today.

The Back to Karkand expansion contains four "remastered" Battlefield 2 maps: Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula. The expansion also contains five new dog tags, five new achievements/trophies, three new vehicles (DPV, BTR-90, F-35B STOVL jet fighter), 10 Battlefield weapons and a new persistence system where you can complete assignments to earn rewards.

Back to Karkand is available for free if you pre-ordered the Battlefield 3 Limited Edition. Pricing details were not announced.

  • Yes thats awesome i got the limited edition so its free

  • Wake Island?!?!?!?! YES!!!!!

  • Joy!

  • I love battlefield and cannot wait for this expansion, hit me up my gamertag is the same as my username.

  • This game is amazing. The online is so fun, i can't stop playing !!!

  • They need to fix their servers first!

  • can't wait! need more tdm & squad tdm maps!


    what the hell was the point of preordering it then? i probably wont even play this *** up game till then.

  • the fact that it wasn't released at launch as promised disappointed me
  • Looking forward to it!  BF3, so far, has been a blast, and free DLC always helps sweeten the deal.

  • Great game, can't wait for the DLC!

  • WTF why wasnt this in the original game THIS IS WHY I HATE DLC.

  • I thought this DLC pack was just Karkand!?!?! Im glad it isnt cause i personally liked Sharqi better and Wake Island is also amazing!!!

  • Man this seems so familar to that other company and game that everyone hates. Maybe I'm reading to far into it... yeh thats it.
  • I'm one of those Geezers that's played the hell out of Battlefield 2.  I can't wait for this to drop.

  • this wil definitly get GOTY but I have been playing batman and its so sick!
  • This game rocks.  Bring on the expansions.

  • Thats f**king fast expansion pack announce already?

  • maybe its just me, but i feel cheated. i purchased the game for the ps3 and xbox 360, and as usual for release days, ea chooses not to have enough servers open to support players, connectivity issues including rubber-banding, and the ps3 didnt get battlefield 1943 as sony and ea continuously boasted at e3. then to make matters worse, you pre-order the game for free content, that was supposed to be available at the time of release, only to get it in december along with those that have to pay for it. while i think the game will be terrific in the long run, ea did us wrong and have yet to appologize.
