Right after I covered the announcement of Battlefield 3
and the release of the teaser trailer
, it seems an EA employee slipped up and released a promotional poster that was supposed to be kept underwraps:
Uncovered by a poster at the official Battlefield 3 UK forums
, we now have some information on one item that will be included in the Limited Edition: the "Back to Karkand" DLC.
This is the tiny print in the lower right of the image:
The Battlefield 3 Limited Edition includes Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand at no extra charge*
This themed expansion pack features four legendary maps from Battlefield 2 boldly re-imagined with Frostbite 2 physics, destruction and visuals. Completing the package are classic Battlefield 2 weapons and vehicles, unique rewards, new achievements / trophies, and more. For those who don’t pre-order to secure the limited edition, Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand expansion content will be available for purchase approximately one month after the game’s release.
The bold on "new achievements" was added by me for extra emphasis. Battlefield 3
will be released Fall 2011.
