Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand DLC Wake Island Trailer

It’s December 6th and that means PlayStation 3 users can finally jump into the first expansion to Battlefield 3. Titled Back to Karkand, the Battelfield 3 DLC is more than a simple map pack adding remakes of some of the series’ fan-favorite locations, but it’s adding new vehicles, weapons and other fun behind-the-scenes stuff.

PS3 users have access to Back to Karkand a full week before PC and Xbox 360 players due to an EA decision to (secretly) drop the Battlefield 1943 exclusive for PS3 buyers, a decision which caused quite a stir of controversy, including a class-action lawsuit againts them for making a false promise to users at E3. The one-week early access was offered as a substitute initially, until EA came around and eventually gave into giving PS3 owners of Battlefield 3 the opportunity to download 1943 as well.

The new battlefields players will be able to wreak destruction across Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula. While we got an intimate look at Gulf of Oman last week – and the new sweet vehicles it adds – today’s trailer focuses on Wake Island, using PS3 gameplay.

 Along with the maps and vehicles, Back to Karkand also adds quite a few new weapons along with the appropriate in-game awards.

  • Five new dog tags.
  • Five new achievements/trophies.
  • Three new vehicles (DPV, BTR-90, F-35B STOVL jet fighter).
  • 10 iconic Battlefield weapons.
  • A new persistence system where players complete assignments to earn their rewards.

    this game is total crash on 360, cant even get a decent game due to the amount of moronic k/d obsessed kids who think they’re cool for cheating to max level and just sitting in the corner killing those that are in the game mode for the damn game type >:( at this rate my copy will be sitting at the local games retailer b/c i cant take the stupidity of gamers anymore, i’m just gonna stick to sp games, assuming those still exist.

  • ATG

    @jwalka, so sorry man

    Man these trailers are always epic! What’s funny is they don’t show you the part where you spend 60% of the match walking to a destination lol

    assuming you have no squad

    • jwalka

      so true, then again most people with common sense join a squad (how hard is it, they even make it the default choice). i blame CoD for the stupidity of the bf3 player (on console at least) b/c of that game franchise, people don’t know wtf team work and co-operation mean and all they worry about is their ‘k/d’ >:(

    El_cubano_1250 aka cuban_gang_alex  is a known cheater on Red Dead Redemption for the Playstation 3. This cuban bitch uses a modded PS3 console with an aimbot, modified controller and the invincibility glitch in gang matches. 

    ShadowRaven9 is a well respected moderator on one of the Red Dead websites and confirmed our cheating claim with this comment.

    “i saw that el_cubano dude 2 dayz ago, and yes he was def using that glitch, i shot him 18 x’s and he was laughing and saying he could not be killed, what a chump, needs to cheat to have a chance at winning”

    Then as you would expect cuban_gang_alex tried to put a twist on the story by saying it must have been someone else.

     “Shadow is impossible that u play with el_cubano_1250 maybe it was another one like cubanito22 or something because el_cubano_1250 is me and havent use that acc in a long time sice i created this and u know im not cheater”

    Well there it is, and as we have said all along cuban_gang_alex is a cheater. Now we have to figure out what other PSN accounts he cheats on.

    RRS187 is a Nazi moderator on the Reddead dot us website. This German bitch bans anyone with different views then he has or if they don’t get along with his fellow cheaters corvettezr1-13 and cuban_gang_alex. The Reddead dot us website has become a safe haven for the biggest cheaters on Red Dead Redemption. Several people have complained about him but the site administrators have failed to act. This nazi bitch is also a cheater on Red Dead Redemption for the Platstation 3. He uses a modded PS3 console with an aimbot and a modified controller. This bitch needs to get a life and stop abusing what little power he has.

  • PizzaBoy

    Ariel_Massacre is another known cheater on Red Dead Redemption for the Playstation 3. She was once a legitimate player that was well respected by many on Red Dead. Then she hit a downward spiral when she started associating with several of the cheaters on the Reddeadus website. Now her reputation is tarnished and her name is forever associated with being a cheater. My only question is, was it worth it?

  • terrygetmoney1

    terrygetmoney1 is a cheater on several Playstation 3 games including Call of Duty Black Ops, Modern Warfare 3 and Red Dead Redemption. This punk uses a modded PS3 console with an aimbot and a modified controller. Not only that, he sucks at these games so bad that he has to camp to get kills.
