Back to Karkand Release Times!

PS3 players have been enjoying Back to Karkand for about a week now and the rest of us Battlefield 3 players will gain access to the expansion pack starting tomorrow (expected to be in less than 10 hours from now). EA released the times for the highly anticipated Battlefield 3 expansion pack:
  • Xbox 360: starting at 09:00 GMT (4 AM EST)
  • PC digital: starting at 08:00 GMT (3 AM EST)
The Battlefield 3 systems will also be receiving an update at the same time and is expected to take about an hour. Server owners should be prepped for the server update, R12 sometime tomorrow as well, instructions can be found here. Battlefield 3 players will have access to the expansion pack in their respective platform's stores (those with the limited edition will not have to purchase the expansion pack).

Probably to keep download traffic to a minimum, as folks will download it through the day as they sign-on. Instead of waiting til midnight like I just did cuz i'm bored and need to blow up buildings hahaha.

There's 12/13 hours' difference between the UK and Aus, I think. I know I always had to find an awkward time to phone my friend down under. So you're looking at 9pm?

I'm still waiting. These times are total bullshit as expected. 1:42 AM PST, and I'm able to "connect to EA" but there are no game servers up, nor is Karkand available for DL. Sigh...

Not like I didn't see this coming.

I can't see it on the in-game store. I can see a "Multiplayer Update" and "Back to Karkand" on the Dashboard Game Marketplace but I can't download either from there too.

What the dealio.

I've checked everything in store and it's only trailers and gameplay vids, biggest file is like 60mb. Nothing in marketplace over 100mb either.

They are telling people on Twitter to restart your Xbox if you don't see it. I don't know if that fixes anything, but worth a try. I'm at 16% atm. Gonna watch 2 Broke Girls. Should be close to done by then.

Never right away, which is pathetic given their history. Oh well, I'm sure it will be worth it.

Download 2.07gb MP update, then try download B2K from in-game store by redeeming your code once again or just download.
