EA has confirmed Battlefield 3 will indeed span two discs on Xbox 360, and has explained to Eurogamer what each disc will include.

Double discs

According to an EA spokesperson speaking with Eurogamer, disc one will feature the “stunning multiplayer, co-op levels and HD installation content,” while disc two will feature the “the superb single-player campaign.”

The PS3 version of Battlefield 3 will come on one Blu-ray disc, as the capacity is much larger than Xbox 360’s DVD format.

Earlier today, Japanese blog Hachimaki posted the news that Battlefield 3 would cover two discs and Xbox 360, and the site carried a photo of a Japanese promo poster, showing the two-disc format.

Post release DLC

DICE GM Karl Magnus Troedsson has also confirmed the obvious on Twitter, stating that Battlefield 3 would receive paid, post release DLC, other than the Back to Karkland map pack which comes free with pre-orders.

According to the tweet: “Yes, there will be PDLC post launch. We’ve announced the Back To Karkand pack but there will be more to come.”

Battlefield 3 releases on October 25 in the US and October 28 in the UK for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
