Four Re-imagined Battlefield Maps
Back to Karkand features four of the most beloved Battlefield 2 maps (Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, Wake Island and Sharqi Peninsula), all fully re-imagined utilizing the power of the Frostbite 2 engine.
More Weapons, More Vehicles
Enhance the signature Battlefield "Rock, Paper, Scissor" gameplay with an arsenal of ten new weapons that you can bring back to the base game and three new vehicles including the STOVL fighter jet, desert buggy, and an APC.
Frostbite 2 creates a whole new level of life-like destruction. The enhanced destruction in this expansion pack lets you turn entire maps into rubble. Chip away at cover, blow holes in walls, and bring down building façades on enemies.
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.
With the introduction of the all-new Assignments, Back to Karkand features an added layer of persistence on top of what is in the base game. With a vast range of unlockables and upgrades, the combined persistence in Battlefield 3 and Back to Karkand will keep players occupied even longer.
Personalized Dog Tags
Players can express their individuality with five new dog tags including Dolphin Diving and One Man Army. Players can pick the design that showcases their play style best and show it off on the battlefield.

Speaking to investors, Nintendo has offered its first confirmation that its new Wii U console will launch in all major markets - including the UK - for Christmas 2012. The console, first revealed at E3 last year, was already pencilled in for a 2012 release, but it was unclear if that only referred to Japan.
The console is an evolution of the existing Wii, with far more graphical power, HD graphics and an innovative new tablet controller which works together with the Wii remote. The console was shown off again at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, and will be the centrepiece of Nintendo's presence at E3 in June.
As for software, a new Super Smash Bros game is known to be in development while Legend of Zelda has been used for some demonstrations. Exclusive Wii U versions of smash hits such as Batman: Arkham City, Ghost Recon, Battlefield, Assassin's Creed and Darksiders also feature in the console's confirmed line up.
So that's the Christmas shopping sorted nice and early then.
A new 'Matches' feature is coming to Battlefield 3, according to developers DICE, aiming to better organise and personalise multiplayer battles.
The new feature will allow players to choose the time, server, game settings and more when playing online. It'll increased personalisation for everything from start time, game mode and even the Match name, and allow you to create rosters from your list of friends and platoon members.
All of this is designed to allow players "to coordinate competitive multiplayer sessions with their friends and squad members", and "put their teamwork to the test in controlled environments laying claim to definitive superiority and creating new grudges". All results can be tracked in Battlelog afterwards, although a 'Warm-Up Phase' will be avaialble so you can practice before commiting your performance to record.
More details will be coming soon, but between this and Battlefield Premium, which launched last month, EA and DICE are clearly putting a lot into extending the lifespan of Battlefield 3 online.
EA set war-hungry gamers squealing with delight when it confirmed a fourth Battlefield game was in development for 2013, but some fans expressed concern that this meant the current title, the rather excellent Battlefield 3, would be abandoned.
Not so, says community manager Ian Tornay, who took to the official Battlefield blog to put minds at rest. "We are committed to providing an excellent Battlefield 3 experience well into the future, past the releases of Aftermath, End Game and Battlefield 4," he said. "DICE is continuing its work on Battlefield 3 alongside Battlefield 4. Most importantly, official details regarding Battlefield 4 will always be made available on Battlefield.com and here on the Battlefield Blog. We expect that the level of interest in Battlefield 4 will lead to a lot of speculation and rumour - don't fall for it!"
Battlefield 3 is currently in the midst of receiving a series of additional content packs, with new maps and modes planned for the rest of this year and beyond.
For those who can't wait to get their hands on Battlefield 4, right now the only way to make that happen is to pre-order the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which comes with access to the Battlefield 4 beta trials.
Battlefield 4 is expected to land in the Autumn of 2013. Medal of Honor: Warfighter is out this year, on October 23rd, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
