Battlefield 3 Updates 5.25...2011 - Bonus/Expansion

Containing four of the best Battlefield maps ever created by DICE, the first expansion pack for Battlefield 3 will include Strike at Karkand and Wake Island in our previous blog posts, which leaves Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula.

Anyone who pre-orders Battlefield 3 will receive our first themed expansion pack at no extra charge. When Lead Designer Niklas Fegraeus got the assignment to lead the expansion pack, his thoughts immediately went to the four most played and loved maps in the history of Battlefield: Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman, and Sharqi Peninsula. Combined, these four maps have been played for an incredible 25,000 man years!

An actual designers doc of the map was also provided. Just click it to actually see it :)

The following shots are other art created by DICE to give you a feel of the Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula.

 This Expansion pack is included in the limited edition Battlefield 3.  If you pre-order you get the limited edition, which also includes other bonus packs which DICE has not disclosed.  So far they have only disclosed the release of the UK Battlefield 3 Limited edition "Physical Warfare bonus pack" seen here.
