Battlefield 3: Back To Karkand Features Even More Destruction

Posted on November 2, 2011 AT 09:24am

THE BUZZ: Battlefield 3 is becoming known for its amazing environmental destruction, thanks to the Frostbite 2 engine, but according to Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President of EA, the upcoming Back to Karkand DLC will include even more.

“There’s a lot of destruction in BF3, but the Karkand map pack, when you play it, it’s a different level, even more so than in BF3, of destruction in there. So I think people are really going to like that, and see it as something fresh. When you play Karkand, it’s just crazy the amount of destruction that goes on in there. And that’s a deliberate decision by the small team who made the pack, to really dial that up and make it even more prominent than it is in the Battlefield 3 ‘vanilla’ experience,” he said.

The Back To Karkand map pack will feature redesigned version of four Battlefield 2 maps and is set to release this December.

EGM’s TAKE: If you love destruction in Battlefield 3 then you will certainly want to check out the first DLC.
