First Battlefield 3 DLC free on preorder
Posted: 11.05.2011 06:42 by Comments: 6
Preorders for Battlefield 3 will be awarded with the first expansion as a bonus, called Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand. The DLC will feature re-mastered old maps from Battlefield 2 like “Wake Island,” “Gulf of Oman,” “Sharqi Peninsula” and “Strike at Karkand,” all revamped and redesigned using the heavy hyped Frostbite 2 engine.

The maps will be different from the original games enough that strategies will have to be changed, since the maps now feature a destructive environment. Also returning are some old classic weapons from the previous game as well as classic vehicles.

There's no word yet what Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand will cost for gamers who did not preorder the game. Battlefield 3 will be released this Fall for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Still holding off a bit to see more details and make sure that EA doesn't make a FUBAR with how the game will work, microtransaction-crap or anything similar...

Wake Island was mega-popular since the BF1942, and many fans would probably feel sorry if it wasn't included in the new BF release. I believe that many mods will emerge on this game, so expect some new custom made maps too ;)
