If you have been playing Battlefield 3 religiously since it came out in October, there’s little doubt that you’ll be very satisfied with what DICE has offered so far in the way of DLC via the excellent Back to Karkand expansion pack that added new maps as well as new weapons, vehicles and assignments.
Back for Karkand has been out for the good part of a month now though, and naturally gamers are going to be thinking what is next on the agenda for Battlefield 3 in terms of adding DLC to the game to make it even better. Firstly, if you haven’t played Back to Karkand you don’t know what you’re missing as for a free piece of DLC it really doesn’t get much better for Battlefield fans, just spend a few hours on Wake Island and you’ll see what we mean.
As for the future, we’re assuming that DICE are planning to release a lot more DLC for the game, and it is going to be a very exciting prospect for fans to see what comes next after Back to Karkand. Will they add some brand new, never seen before content to the game, or will they continue in the growing trend of remaking content to suit Battlefield veterans?
Back to Karkand contained four remade maps from BF2 using the Frostbite 2 engine of course, and if they are planning to release more of the game, we would like to see some remade maps from Battlefield: Bad Company 2 thrown into the mix. BFBC2 features some very memorable maps which we feel Battlefield 3 players would love to see make an appearance and we can offer a reminder just to refresh your memory. One map that would be perfect for Battlefield 3 is Panama Canal, arguably the most popular map from the game. It’s big enough for a great session on either conquest or rush, and the addition of jets and helicopters would give the whole map an entirely different look – maybe throw in one mobile AA for the two teams to fight over as well for good measure.
Other maps that we would like to see in Battlefield 3 is Arica Harbor and Laguna Alta. Of course, we wouldn’t mind seeing some brand new content for Battlefield 3 as well, but we have a feeling that more remade maps will be on the way next. Back to Karkand is proving to be a huge success, so why shouldn’t they continue with this formula?
If you have Battlefield 3 and have loved every minute of Back to Karkand, what would you like to see next for DLC? Brand new maps or some more remade content from previous games? Don’t forget about the Battlefield ‘2143’ rumors that you can read about here.
