Get ready to head back to Karkand this December with Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand, the first expansion pack to DICE’s critically acclaimed Battlefield 3. Utilizing the power of Frostbite 2, the Back to Karkand expansion pack remasters four of the greatest Battlefield 2 multiplayer maps with enhanced levels of destruction: Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula. Back to Karkand continues Battlefield 3’s all-out warfare in what the New York Times has hailed as ”the most visually realistic shooter on the market”.
More than a map pack, Back to Karkand marks the return of the classic Conquest Assault mode from Battlefield 2. A slight twist on the beloved Conquest mode, Conquest Assault starts with one team commanding all flags on the map while the opposing team must assault and take the flags over in order to stop their tickets from bleeding down to zero.
Back to Karkand also features three new vehicles (the STOVL fighter jet, desert buggy, and an APC), ten Battlefield 2 weapons you can bring back to the base game, five new dog tags, five new achievements/trophies, and an added layer of persistence where players complete Assignments to earn their rewards.
Since the launch of the game, Battlefield 3’s multiplayer has won over 60 industry awards and captivated fans across the globe with truly innovative team-based multiplayer augmented with powerful and free online social features found via the game’s unique social network, Battlelog.
