DICE has finally dropped the major update that has been coming for Xbox 360 and PC owners that features the release of Back to Karkand. PlayStation 3 owners already received the update last week. It is a large patch that includes Back to Karkand, and that checks in at a little over 2GB to download.
Battlefield 3 owners who purchased the “Limited Edition” version of the title will gain access to Back to Karkand, which features new reimagined maps from Battlefield 2 for free. Otherwise, you will be stuck paying $15 or 1,200 Microsoft Points to get access to these additional maps. Of course, you still get the patch for free.
An additional Map Pack is said to be on the horizon for Battlefield 3, but details are still sketchy as to what DICE might be planning for its next DLC offering.
