what's with all the random rubble manifesting itself at each person's feet when they're walking/running around ???

Oh and I can already hear guys bitching about the pre-baked textures on the scope rather than real time reflections.... All this new fangled rendering tech and they couldn't do real time scope glass?? Didn't the original far cry game have this?

I agree with you on this, but the game is still pretty far out (date wise). I hope they wise up and correct this though.

Strike at Karkand Infantry Only, can't wait! Seen as it hits Steam pre-order I'm on it. If this game turn out to be what MW2 was I might be a SP only guy.

Going Back to Karkand #3: Introducing Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula

Yours at no extra charge on pre-order.

Part III in a behind the scenes series on Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand

We've covered off two of the maps in the pre-order bonus Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand. Today, we have some early concepts from the two remaining maps for you, as well as some clarification on how to get your hands on them. Read on.


Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand contains four classic Battlefield maps reimagined with the power of the new Frostbite 2 game engine. We've covered off Strike at Karkand and Wake Island in our previous blog posts, which leaves Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula.

Below, you can see some very early concept art that we designed here at DICE to get a feel for what these new versions could feel like. Don't read too much into them, though, as concept art will never be proof of features, content, or even final visual design.





By the way, there's absolutely no way you can pre-order Battlefield 3 and not end up with the Limited Edition. Battlefield 3: Limited Edition in turn entitles you to the expansion pack Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand once it is released (after launch, date to be confirmed). If you pre-order, this bonus content will be yours at no extra charge. If you do not pre-order, you will still be able to buy it when it is released (price to be confirmed). The goal from the separate development team behind it is to make it every bit as ambitious and full of content as Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam. Closer to the launch of the base game, we will be able to show you just what that means.



On another note, if you want a chance to play on three of these classic Battlefield maps (namely Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, and Sharqi Peninsula), they are all available in the excellent Battlefield Play4Free.
