With the release of Back To Karkand for PlayStation 3 players today, DICE also released a brand new trailer. This time, focus is on Wake Island, one of the most popular maps in the Battlefield franchise. And from the look of it, it’ll retain its popularity in Battlefield 3.

    I really would like to enjoy this expansion pack but after yesterday patch, i really can’t enjoy the game at the actual status…,please revert back game stats at its original like to 3 days ago it was, bacuse now it isn’t funny to play anymore, for the first time yesterday night i’ve played it just for a match, and not all the night long as i used to do from its release.
    i please to listen this comment, don’t get it censored, it’s a real matter of gameplay right now, back to karkand will be totally uninteresting with actual game status, i feel very frustrated ‘ cuese i enjoyed bf3 so much and i can’t waited for back to karkand but now, or karkand or not… differences, because i refuse to play bf3 right now, it’s a frustrating and not a funny game now

    Ive heard nothing but bad things from my playstation 3 friends, espcially wake island. Apprently its looks good but plays pointlessly. And Karkand thus far every time they have played it the other team starts owning a spawn point which apprently leads to hundreads just spawning and dieing instantly.. Not sounding great so far.. Lets hope they use this week to iron out issues before pc gets it .. we may be less but we are vocal :P

    Why do people ever say graphics suck? I’m pretty sure we have reached the gaming age of no graphics being bad anymore… Sure, some can still look better than others, but wtf…. You people act like you’re watching PS1 or N64 or some shiz…gimme a break!

    Ok, so these/this destruction 2.0 enhancements aren’t coming to the disk maps? If not, bummer.

      Sorry, enhanced destruction isn’t coming to the new maps. Also, it’s possible other DLC maps will have the same destruction as BF3 vanilla maps – it was the BtK developers choice to put in that extra Frostbyte2 capability :)

    So let me get this straight!! Dice Promised and the dice community manager on twitter promised that we will get the 3 and 5 flag setup on B2K maps for consoles, but yet i only see 2 maps according to gameplay videos on youtube, with only 5 flags?? um ok?? and number 2, i dont see see any option in the filter menu with 3 and 5 flag setup or at least an option of conquest small or large, so how the h*ll would i know in the browser of the map having 5 flags or not? dice is so complicated in everything, so annoying!!!!!!!

    Ha ^totally agree!! only reason why dice gave ps3 users a week early content so they can see the problems they go through with the content so they can have enough time to fix it for pc and 360 the following week! so its basically the ps3 getting the beta version of it till they fix everything for the other platforms!! and i did recall the dice manager daniel matros confirming there will be 3 and 5 flag option playing B2K maps but i never saw it in the filter menu of the browser, ha already the first big issue that needs to be fixed!! thnx dice!!!!!!!!

    Tbh wake island feels like a arctic island with palm trees. Feels nothing like a tropical island. Probably due to the ice blue water and the cool color temp bf3 has. Hey DICE this map is off the coast japan not off the coast of Sweden!

      The original map from BF1942 was a lot better IMHO. But that’s only cause I loved watching someone crash the aircraft carrier into the island! It made for true wtf/lol moments :D

    Not at all a fan of conquest assault. It works like crap so far…

    It worked in BF2, but it’s been awful on the PS3. Need regular conquest. Rush and Squad Deathmatch have both been awesome on the B2K maps though.
