DICE has launched the Back to Karkand expansion for Battlefield 3, which arrives alongside a new gameplay trailer showing off the re-imagined Wake Island map.
The DLC introduces four new maps: Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Sharqi Peninsula and Gulf of Oman. Once downloaded, they'll be available in the server browser and in the Quick Match filter settings just like the nine maps from the base game.
"There will be servers that mix and match maps from the base game and Back to Karkand, so you will never have to commit to playing either base game or Back to Karkand maps in your gaming session," DICE product manager Tommy Rydling explained on the PS Blog.
Back to Karkand is free for Battlefield 3: Limited Edition owners. Anyone else can buy it for £11.99 / €14.99 / $14.99 on PS3, or 1200 MS Points (£10.28) on Xbox 360. PS3 players get exclusive one week early access to Battlefield 3 DLC.
