Tommy Rydling, junior product manager at DICE, has said expansion packs for Battlefield 3 will have a week-long exclusivity period for PS3 when released to the masses.

It starts with Back to Karkland, the pack which is part of the pre-order bonus to gamers who drop down cash early for the game. Those who did not pre-order the game, will have to purchase it when it is released later this year.

Rydling also wanted to remind those who have redeemed a Medal of Honor: Limited Edition or Tier 1 Edition Online Pass will receive early access via email invitation from DICE which allows for 48-hour early access, to the open beta on September 27.

The open beta runs from September 29 through October 10, where players will be able to try out Battlelog, help load test the servers, and run around shooting people on the Operation Métro a map.

Battlefield 3 hits the US on October 25 and Europe on October 28.
