My favorite map in Battlefield 2 was Strike at Karkand. It was an example of a perfectly designed multiplayer map. It had plenty of room for both vehicles and infantry, and yet, it was not too big so infantry would get lost, or too small so vehicles dominated. It was well balanced. Now, that map is coming back in Battlefield 3’s first map pack, the Back to Karkand pack. Strike looks absolutely chaotic in the new trailer, as the Frostbite 2.0 engine destroys building and cover that I have personally used to save my own butt in the previous game in the series. Of course, to make things even better, it will be free to anyone who bought the limited edition. Check out the trailer after the jump.
All I can say after watching this is “wow.”
