It wasn’t too long of a wait, but after last week’s launch of Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand on the PlayStation 3, the expansion pack is now available for folks who play Battlefield 3 on the Xbox 360 and PC. The first of many expansions to come, Back to Karkand features four favorite maps from Battlefield 2, recreated with the Frostbite 2 engine with enhanced levels of destruction.
In addition to new maps, Back to Karkand introduces 10 new weapons, three classic vehicles from Battlefield 2 – the STOVL fighter jet, Desert Buggy and APC, five new dog tags, and new assignments for unlocking the new weapons.
As previously mentioned, Battlefield 3 Limited Edition owners can download this expansion pack at no extra charge, but for those of you who didn’t get it you’ll need to purchase it separately for $14.99 from Origin or at the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1,200 Microsoft Points. It’s time to catch up with those PS3 players who have had a week’s head start to play the expansion.
