Battlefield 3's first expansion coming in December

This whole week for me in gaming is all about Battlefield 3. I still want to create my second character in Dark Souls and possibly get that Platinum, but that will have to wait thanks to this addicting multiplayer, plus the single player is still untouched! EA announced that the first expansion, Back to Karkand(included in the Limited Edition) is coming in December. Just a few weeks away and we get four new maps to play in? This game will be near my PS3 for a long time.

Sadly they're not really new maps, they are maps from previous Battlefield games remastered for Battlefield 3.  Now it still sounds like a good deal for people who have to purchase the expansion pack. The four maps are: Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula. It will also include extra dog tags, trophies/achievements, and new vehicles:  DPV, BTR-90, and F-35B STOVL jet fighter. They will also include additional weapons from the old Battlefield games.

Limited Edition owners of course will get this pack for free, but for those that didn't pre-order, you'll have to pay to get it.

Have a look at these fresh new screenshots of the Back to Karkand:
