Battlefield 3's Back to Karkand DLC has a release date. The expansion pack hits on Tuesday 6th December on the US PSN, according to the PS Blog.
The pack is built around four maps, remade from Battlefield 2 in the Frostbite 2 engine. There's Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and the Sharqi Peninsula, all of which now gain from the improved tech's destruction engine. With the exception of Wake Island, which is more open, we're promised that you can reduce every map to rubble. Rubble!
In addition to this, there are also a bunch of new weapons and vehicles up for grabs. The latter offers up the insane VSTOL fighter jet, a Desert Buggy and an APC. Plus of course, there's five new trophies. But we already knew that. It's our job to know that.
Back to Karkand will cost $15, unless you picked up the Limited Edition of the game, in which case it is free. A European date has not yet been confirmed, but expect a Wednesday 7th release.
