Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand Orchestrates an Early-December Deployment

November 29, 2011Written by Jonathan Leack

Previously, we were told that Battlefield 3‘s first major DLC, Back to Karkand, would be released sometime in December, and now we have a more specific date.

Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand has a release date of December 6th. With only Just Dance 3 releasing next week, Back to Karkand will be a welcome addition.

This pack will include quite a few goodies for everyone, including four maps, several vehicles, a new game mode, and more than half a dozen weapons. Most of all, it comes with Wake Island, which has been Battlefield‘s iconic map since 2002 when Battlefield 1942 released. While the pack looks great, the best news is that it’ll be offered for free to those who pre-ordered the game from certain retailers, or bought the Limited Edition. Don’t worry if you didn’t pre-ordere Battlefield 3, though, as you will be able to purchase it from the PlayStation Store, presumably after next week’s update.
