Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand DLC dated for PSN

Due out in the US next week.

Battlefield 3's Back to Karkand DLC arrives on US PSN on Tuesday 6th December, Sony has announced.

A European date hasn't been confirmed but it should follow on the Wednesday over here.

The pack includes four classic Battlefield 2 maps remastered in the Frostbite 2 engine: Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and the Sharqi Peninsula. On top of that, you'll also get classic Battlefield 2 weapons and vehicles, as well as new achievements. See the trailer below for a glimpse of how it looks.

It sells for your local equivalent of $15, but it's free to those who picked up the Battlefield 3 limited edition.

Sony has snagged a one week exclusive on the pack so PC and Xbox 360 patrons will have to hold on until the 13th.
