Post Back to Karkand launches for the PlayStation 3 on Tuesday!

We hope you are
ready to go Back to Karkand, as we are releasing our first Battlefield 3
expansion pack Tuesday, December 6th (giving you one week early access
exclusively on PlayStation 3)!

Battlefield 3: Back
to Karkand is a huge expansion pack featuring four legendary Battlefield maps
reimagined in the Frostbite 2 engine. Three new vehicles (the VSTOL fighter
jet, Desert Buggy, and an APC), ten new weapons that you can bring back to the
base game, and a new layer of persistence with our all-new Assignments make
this a must-have for any Battlefield fan.

Our four new maps
are Wake Island, Sharqi Peninsula, Gulf of Oman, and Strike at Karkand. Over
the years these maps have been played billions
of times and now they’ve been reimagined with the power of the Frostbite 2
engine. To top it off, we’re taking the level of destruction to the next level
as well – entire huge portions of these maps can be razed to the ground.

We’re also
introducing the Assignments system. For example, to complete the “Let it Rain” assignment players must score 20
kills with Light Machine Guns and two mortar kills. When you have met the
requirements, you will unlock a new Back to Karkand weapon (with a matching set
of dog tags) to use in Back to Karkand and
the original Battlefield 3 maps, which will mix in server rotation. You will
also unlock the next Assignment in the series, the new Creeping Death
Assignment.

 

We hope that you're as excited as we are to release our fist expansion. There's even more great content planned for the future, so stay tuned!

And before we go,
here are the five new Trophies you can hunt in Back to Karkand:

Complete Warrior (Silver)

Get a kill with the
following weapons in a single life: Rifle, Jet, Tank

Third Tour (Bronze)
Get a kill with the new APC, Desert Buggy, and STOVL fighter jet

Gunslinger (Bronze)

Get 10 kills with
all B2K weapons

Like a Boss! (Silver)
Get a kill with the skid
loader

Jaws (Bronze)
Take a swim in the pool at the
Oman hotel

We hope you enjoyed
this look at our first expansion pack for Battlefield 3. Let us know what you
think about Back to Karkand in the Battlelog forums.

If you are a Battlefield 3 Limited Edition
owner, you are entitled to this entire expansion pack at no extra charge and
you can get it from the in-game store or the PlayStation Store. Otherwise, you
can buy it for $14.99, from the game’s in-game store or from the PlayStation
Store. Every future expansion pack for Battlefield 3 will also be available one
week early exclusively on PlayStation 3, just like Back to Karkand.
