PS3 Battlefield 3 players are now able to jump online and grab the Physical Warfare Pack DLC for free.
The pack was previously only available to those who pre-ordered the game. It includes the DAO-12 shotgun and some custom flechette ammo for it, a flash suppressor for the SKS Sniper Rifle, and the Type 88 Light Machine Gun.
PS3's DLC exclusivity deal continues, so while it's out now on the PS Store, PC and Xbox gamers (that don't already have it via a pre-order) will have to wait until "a later date" - i.e. a week.
The Back to Karkand was released earlier this week, and deserves to be played. The new maps - Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula - are awesome.
