Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand DLC


The first Downloadable Content (DLC) “Back to Karkand” for Battlefield 3 released on Tuesday much to the joy of Battlefield 3 fans on Xbox 360 and PC. Free for those of us who preordered BF3, $14.99 for most of the world, and apparently $23.95 (via Origin) for the Oceanic region. However, Oceanic members have been able to purchase the DLC from other souces for $14.99 and apply it to their game, check the Battlefield 3 Forums for futher details.

Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand includes a whopping 10 new weapons for Battlefield 3 (more guns than Quake III!), three new vehicles (plus a bobcat!), challenges to complete, enhanced destruction, the Classic Conquest Assault Mode, and four of the most loved maps from Battlefield 2.

If you have already unlocked all weapons in the vanilla Battlefield 3, fear not as the ten new weapons in Back to Karland include enough variety to keep you satiated for a while longer. Check out the list below:

WTF is with all the spam comments?

the best game in this year!!!!

http://www.broadhealth.org Many health and safety management systems collapse under the weight of documentation and administration. How much of this resource intensive ‘junk’ do you actually need? By understanding your risk profile you can tailor your management system to suit your organisation. No ‘junk’ required.

http://www.orkneynewstoday.org The average person doesn’t get their face splashed all over the media anytime they buy a gallon of milk, a box of condoms or get a speeding ticket- is it right to force that upon celebrities just because they’re famous and call it “news?”

http://www.businessinarts.org It’s easy to see art in purely idealistic or aesthetic terms. Art as beauty, as truth, as a purveyor of a crucial message, as a fundamental mirror of society are all familiar ideas, popular throughout the centuries and still able to find a home in today’s world.

http://www.thehomestop.org Today’s homes are not only messy, they are simply out of control. Dirty, smelly, covered in toys and pet hair, many people have lost the battle against the tide of daily living. This article shows you how to recognize the signs of an out of control home—and what to do about it.
