Although Battlefield 3 hasn't had its first proper unveiling yet - that short teaser trailer doesn't count - that doesn't stop EA's marketing from planning ahead and prepping the game's Limited Edition for the masses. Oh no.
A leaked Battlefield 3 ad recently surfaced stating that those who purchase the Battlefield 3 Limited Edition will receive the 'Back to Karkand' expansion pack "at no extra charge."
The ad states that "This themed expansion pack features four legendary maps from Battlefield 2, boldly remastered with Frostbite 2 physics, destruction, and visuals. Completing the package are classic Battlefield 2 weapons and vehicles, unique rewards, new achievements/trophies and more."
If you were waiting on reviews or had your eyes on another game and weren't planning to pick it up at launch, fear not, according to the ad, "For those who don't pre-order to secure the Limited Edition, Battlefield 3 'Back to Karkand' expansion content will be available for purchase approximately one month after the game's release."
Game Informer also teased their upcoming cover yesterday evening with a few bits of "declassified intel," stating that the PC version is getting 64-player multiplayer, and there will be jets and also, prone.
Want more? Well, a Swedish retailer's listing states that the action will take us to "claustrophobic streets, metropolitan downtowns, and open, vehicle-friendly landscapes as you fight your way through the war of tomorrow," mentioning Paris, Tehran and New York as specific places you'll visit.
Battlefield 3 is scheduled for an autumn release. That's fall to you North Americans. Look out for our preview from GDC at the beginning of next month.
