Battlefield 3: Back To Karkand DLC, Coming Tomorrow Or Soon After

Wake up Battlefield 3 fans, the first batch of downloadable content is swiftly coming down the pipe line toward your gaming machine of choice, with Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand. You can expect to see Back to Karkand available for download on the PlayStation Network tomorrow, December 6th, and then followed shortly by the PC and Xbox 360 versions on December 13th. For PlayStation 3 owners who recall being shorted out on a free copy 1943 back in October, this early release will be EA’s way of trying (and most likely failing) to make it up to you. It does seem like a tactless gesture from EA to apologize to PS3 owners for giving them less than what they paid for by ‘allowing’ them to buy something else in the future, but there you have it. I must have missed that tactic in my copy of Zen and the Art of Video Game Consumerism…

However, casting any possible grudges aside, the expansion itself seems to pack a serious punch, adding an impressive list of features and updates to your favorite new shooter. Aside from adding three new vehicles, ten new weapons, conquest mode, and five new achievements/trophies for you to unlock, Back to Karkand will be remastering four of the most popular maps from previous Battlefield games using the power of the Frostbite 2 engine. These new maps, which include Wake Island, Gulf of Oman, Sharqi Peninsula, and Strike at Karkand, will feature updated visuals, and enhanced environmental destruction for you and your rocket launcher to take advantage of.

You can pick up this expansion pack for $14.99 or 1200 Microsoft Points either tomorrow or on the 13th. If you are excited by this news, or are satisfied with the expansion after purchase, you will be happy to note that more DLC is still on the way in the future. According to Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President of the EA Game Lable, “the launch of Battlefield 3 was only the beginning as EA [we] vows to keep the game alive with additional content and gameplay improvements in the months ahead.” Seeing how Battlefield 3 was EA’s biggest launch title in history, it’s not surprising that they will do their best to keep people interested (at least until Battlefield 4). I personally think the price is a little high on this expansion, but I will likely be picking it up some time in the future. Be sure to check it out!

  • I agree as well that $15 is too steep. Should have been set at $10. 

    • It’s a good price, they are offering you a lot of new things. unlike CoD that only offers maps for 15$

  • Gonzalez 1991

    at what time tomorrow?

  • Johnpaul34pagan

    Wht time should we expect it 4 ps3? And those who got the unlimited addition, how should we expect to download it….

  • TheLittlestBowl

    Sorry, but the DLC being release a week early has been known for quite some time. It has nothing to do with Battlefield 1943 not being included.

    Call of duty charges the same price, and doesn’t offer new unlockables.

    Will no one be happy about the price on DLC’s? 10 new guns, 3 new vehicles, 4 new maps, new game mode, and a new “assignments” system. Would you rather go spend 15$ over at infinity wards shop for 3 new maps? Didnt think so….or how about you go pay 120$ for mw3 and a years subscription to something that is offered free by halo and bf3..

  • Mystasmo0th

    1943 WAS promised to PS3 owners at E3 when EA said it would be included with the game.

    You don’t have to buy it.  It will not affect the game you have now in any way.

    Don’t like it, don’t play it. 

    There is always the new MW2 $60 expansion pack, I think it’s called MW3

    • inkahoots81

      for me the xpansion pack cost me $110 plus uncle sams cut.. yea real solid deal. damn nation… lol

    • inkahoots81

      well im a fan of both. i do wish battlefield would do something like mw3 tho with the double xp from dewxp.com. i got so much dew and doritos around…. lol anyone hungry or thirsty? lol

  • inkahoots81

  • Price is a little high? for a DLC that comes with 4 huge maps, 3 new vehicles, 10 new weapons, new mode, a new way to unlock weapons. How is that overpriced?

    I mean this DLC seems like it’s worth 15$ to me unlike other games *cough* *cough* Call of duty, which offers you ONLY new maps for 15$.

    • Ryan Strain (ZwiAn)

      uh oh, its the thought police.  You wanna snuggle buddie? 

  • chicagopiano

    DLC makes me feel as if though I paid full price for half a game and have to pay more for the rest

  • sum cunt
