BF3 Back to Karkand shots arrive, tout December release

Friday, 28th October 2011 19:03 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

EA has sent over screenshots for Back to Karkand for Battlefield 3. The DLC contains remasters of four maps from the franchise: Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula. It also includes five new dog tags and achievements/trophies, and three new vehicles: the DPV, BTR-90, and F-35B STOVL jet fighter. Also included are 10 “iconic Battlefield weapons,” and a new persistence system where players complete assignments to earn their rewards.

The DLC will be made available in December, for free to those who pre-ordered and £11.99 for those who didn’t.

    Sounds like this is going to be like the Vietnam expansion in that it’s separated from the regular game. I hope not but no big deal if it is. I’d just rather have more maps in the regular rotation.

    @7 Well yes in a sense XD You either have the maps and play them or you don’t have the maps and can’t play :P
