Today, the highly overhyped Modern Warfare 3 hits stores and millions of gamers will buy it simply because their friends will be playing it. Unfortunately, they’ll be blinded to one of the best games of the year and one of the best multiplayer first-person-shooters in a decade. Battlefield 3 has been out for about two weeks now, and now EA has released a trailer for the first expansion; Back to Karkland. The add-on is actually free to anyone who got their hands on the “Limited Edition” of the game (basically the first shipment), and looks to keep people killing each other well into the New Year.
The expansion will add some fan favorite maps from previous Battlefield games, including the legendary Wake Island. There will also be new weapons, vehicles, and the classic Conquest Assault mode. It’s worth it just for Wake Island alone, but the Battlefield 2 maps that will be included will cement Battlefield 3 as the best game in the series yet. You’ll have all the Frostbite 2 goodness combined with some of the best maps the series ever featured. It’ll be out in December, but you can start your drooling with this trailer.
