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.

The first Battlefield 3 expansion, Back To Karkand, has been released on the PlayStation 3, and some members of the GameStop Power-Up service have received a mini strategy guide for Back To Karkand, which includes map overviews of all four maps, and for all versions of the maps.

It looks like Strike At Karkand will be more limited than in Battlefield 2, and will only have 5 capture points in its largest version. Wake Island will have 5 flags as well, while Sharqi Peninsula and Gulf of Oman on the other hand, will support 7 flags in 64 player mode. Full map overviews below.

Back To Karkand release date
There’s a lot of anticipation for the upcoming and first Battlefield 3 DLC/expansion, called Back to Karkand. While EA has teased us with several trailers and lots of screenshots, they’ve yet to confirm the release date for Back To Karkand. But according to a Sony page, the release date has finally been revealed.

Sony’s Asia PlayStation Store lists Battlefield 3 Back To Karkand with a release date on December 7, 2011. Since PlayStation 3 owners will get Back to Karkand (and all other DLC) one week earlier, that means that Back To Karkand will hit the PC and Xbox 360 platforms on December 14.
