Battlefield 3 Karkand maps revealed

Battlefield 3 will be bringing back select maps from Battlefield 2, and now we know which ones. Word came from DICE community manager Daniel Matros on the EA forums (via NeoSeeker) that Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, and Sharqi Peninsula will all be bundled in the "Back to Karkand" expansion.

The pack remakes the old maps with the spiffy new Frostbite 2 engine, and will be included as a one time use code with the Limited Edition. Matros says that the altogether, players have logged over 25,000 years in these four maps.

PC fans were disappointed recently by the cancelation of Bad Company 2's Onslaught Mode DLC on PC, and the Battlefield 1943 port. Those teams were funneled into the Battlefield 3 push, which is leading on PC.
