Battlefield 2 is still recognized as one of the top mutliplayer shooters you can find on PC, even today. It was a classic right from launch and there’s still a thriving community that loads up the PC servers on a regular basis. If you’re one of those gamers that still cherishes the memories you have from Battlefield 2, then you should probably prepare to preorder Battlefield 3 in the near future. EA and DICE announced today that those who preorder the newest Battlefield installment will receive a free expansion titled, ‘Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand’. If you watched the first gameplay trailer that we showed you recently, you probably caught this announcement at the end but we just now figured out what this pack entails. It includes four classic maps from Battlefield 2, all of them updated to the latest and greatest technology of the Frostbite 2 engine.
The downside is they’ve yet to announce which regions this bonus will be available to. It’s probably safe to assume everyone will have a chance to get them but you just never know. They also haven’t detailed which of the four maps we’ll be receiving with the pack but ‘Strike at Karkand’ seems like a sure bet. We’ll let you know more when they fill us in.
