Battlefield 3 might not have the greatest single-player campaign out there, but its multiplayer mode is definitely engrossing—despite the few bugs that made it into the shipping game. Fans of BF3 multiplayer will get a treat next month when DICE rolls out its Back to Karkand expansion, and the folks at Rock, Paper, Shotgun have found a teaser video that shows us what to expect.
As RPS points out, the expansion will bring back four maps from Battlefield 2: Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, Sharqui Peninsula, and Wake Island. Players can also expect three new vehicles, 10 new weapons, and "enhanced destruction." The expansion will be free of charge to folks who pre-ordered BF3. Others will have to shell out $15.
Now, all DICE needs to do is iron out the kinks left in the current version of the game. All too many times, I've had the game pop out of fullscreen mode and disconnect me from a server when another application (like Windows Update or Skype) did something in the background. The game seems to love crashing while loading for the first time, too.
