Battlefield 3 Pre-Order Bonus Roundup

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
All of the talk about different limited editions and pre-order bonuses for Battlefield 3 may have got you a little confused as to what exactly is on offer, especially now that yet another pre-order bonus has been revealed (see further down). We hope that this roundup will be able to clarify a few details for you.

The Limited Edition will include the "Back to Karkland" Expansion DLC:

This themed multiplayer expansion pack includes the four legendary maps Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, Sharqi Peninsula and Wake Island from Battlefield 2 - boldly re-imagined with Frostbite 2 physics, destruction and visuals. Completing the package are classic Battlefield 2 weapons and vehicles which can be brought back to your Battlefield 3 game, unique unlocks, new achievements/trophies, and more.

For those of you who don't want to order the limited edition, this bonus will be available for purchase on the Xbox Marketplace approximately a month after the game's release.

So far, there are four pre-order bonuses that have been revealed for Europe and Australia / New Zealand. The pre-order bonuses for North America are yet to be confirmed.
