DICE has said the Physical Warfare Pack DLC being made available immediately to customers who pre-order Battlefield 3, will be available to all for free after the game launches.
Here’s what DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson had to say regarding the matter over on the Battlefield Blog:
“I would like to start by clarifying that the Physical Warfare Pack is a time-based exclusive. If you do not pre-order Battlefield 3 at a retailer carrying the Physical Warfare Pack, don’t worry. We will unlock the contents of the Physical Warfare Pack for free to all Battlefield 3 players later this year.
“The Physical Warfare Pack will be available as a pre-order bonus all over the globe. Right now, the UK is the only country where it has been announced, but stay tuned to get constant updates on where you can pick this up in your country. And remember, if you do not pre-order, you will still get access to this content at a later date, free of charge. If you do pre-order, you will get access to it from day one.”
Back to Karkland is also a pre-order bonus which will be made available sometime after launch, but unlike the aforementioned incentive, it won’t be free.
Battlefield 3 is out in October.
