I am sure that we have all seen the major tease that was EA’s recent Battlefield 3 trailer
earlier this week. Even though the gameplay footage was incredibly brief, it looked incredible. At the end of the trailer, you may have noticed a note that preordering the game would land you the Back to Karkand map pack... but what exactly does that entail?
EA has revealed the contents of the Back to Karkand on the official European forums
for the game. The launch day map pack will contain 4 classic maps from Battlefield-past: Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, and Sharqi Peninsula. Wake Island in particular holds a special place in my heart because of the countless hours of my life spent on the map way back in Battlefield 1942. I really like the current trend of bringing back classic maps in new FPs games and hope that this trend continues in the future...
