A few days ago we gave you a quick glimpse of what you can expect in the Back to Karkand expansion that’s about to launch for Battlefield 3, but at the time we were still unaware of the exact release date. That changed today, as EA have now announced when we can expect to see the new maps, vehicles, and weapons that are all included in this add-on, and we won’t be waiting long.
December 6th is the date they gave us for both the Americas and Europe, although since the PlayStation Store updates a day later in Europe, it may actually be the 7th before it shows up in your region.
Speaking of the PlayStation Store, that’s the only place you’ll be able to find it for the first week of release, per the previously announced agreement EA made with Sony to release all add-ons on the PS3 first. You can expect the Xbox 360 and PC versions to launch the following week on the 13th. Regardless of platform, the expansion will be free if you purchased the Limited Edition of the Battlefield 3.
Has anyone had a chance to play the PC or PS3 versions of the game since the patch went live on those platforms?
