It was previously revealed that the Return to Karkand expansion for Battlefield 3 would be a pack-in bonus for those who pre-ordered the game, and players in the UK can now join in on the fun with the Battlefield 3 Limited Edition: Physical Warfare Pack. This limited edition not only comes with the first expansion for the game, but also some exclusive weapons.
Those who pre-order at either GAME or Gamestation in the UK will be able to get their hands on this special limited edition. The pack won’t cost more than than the regular edition and other than the exclusive weapons, the offer seems to only have a much cooler name than the North American version.
Those who take the plunge early will gain access to three exclusive weapons, the Type 88 Light Machine Gun, the SKS Sniper Rifle, and launch-day access to the DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun.
The DAO-12 will also come with the exclusive armor-piercing Flechette ammo. Taking down heavily armored opponents will be made a lot easier with this combo. The Type 88 will come with a bipod for maximum stability and accuracy, while the SKS Sniper rifle will be the perfect weapon for campers with its flash suppressor.
US gamers may be a bit envious at their British cousins over their pre-order weapons, however it’s highly likely that we’ll get special store exclusives very similar to most major game release in the States.
Battlefield 3 has to be one of the most anticipated first-person shooter in recent memory, and with the recent release of the Modern Warfare 3 WW3 trailer, BF3 doesn’t seem to be losing steam. Long-time fans of Battlefield and shooters in general are looking forward to seeing what the Frostbite 2 engine can do to the classic maps in the Return to Karkand expansion – and to the game in general.
Are you planning to pre-order Battlefield 3 when it launches this fall for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360? Which map are you looking forward to playing on the most?
