EA doesn’t want their upcoming content for Battlefield 3 to be considered “just a map pack”. The publisher recently gave journalists a chance to get hands on with the upcoming content and are more keen on the term “expansion pack” for the Battlefield 3 experience than just a map pack. All things considered, it’s not really just a map pack that will be introduced to gamers next month.
Sure the maps might be front and center in “Back to Karkand”, with four fan favorite maps from the Battlefield franchise. But it will also include new vehicles, new dog tags, new weapons, and new achievements to earn.
Putting it up against map packs in DICE’s history, it’s hard to tell if it’ll be quite the game changer that Battlefield BC2: Vietnam was. Though any new content for DICE’s latest will be welcomed with open arms to the millions that have recently been introduced to the world of Battlefield 3.
Keep an eye out for this Battlefield 3 “expansion” to deploy in the coming weeks.
