104w ago - DICE Junior Product Manager Tommy Rydling has announced alongside a new video trailer that Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand hits PS3 a week early today!
To quote: With the PlayStation Store update later today, you will be able to buy, download and play Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand on PS3.
To celebrate launch day, here is an all-new gameplay trailer showcasing Wake Island running on PlayStation 3 hardware. I hope you like what we have done to this classic Battlefield map, and that you enjoy your one-week PS3 exclusive head start on this expansion pack.
Once you have downloaded Back to Karkand, the four new maps (Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, and Sharqi Peninsula) will be available in the server browser and in the Quick Match filter settings just like the nine maps from the base game.
There will be servers that mix and match maps from the base game and Back to Karkand, so you will never have to commit to playing either base game or Back to Karkand maps in your gaming session.
That's it for today; keeping it short and sweet so I can go back to chasing my new Assignments. Hope you enjoyed the launch trailer, and hope to see you online. Let us know what you think about Back...
105w ago - DICE Product Manager Tommy Rydling has announced today that Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand for PlayStation 3 hits PSN Tuesday with new guns, vehicles and assignments.
Below are the details, to quote: I hope you are ready to go Back to Karkand, as we are releasing our first Battlefield 3 expansion pack Tuesday, December 6th on PlayStation 3 in America and Europe - a week early for PlayStation customers!
To recap, Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand is a massive themed expansion pack featuring four legendary Battlefield maps reimagined in the Frostbite 2 engine.
You also get three vehicles (the VSTOL fighter jet, Desert Buggy, and an APC), ten new weapons that you can bring back to the base game, a new layer of persistence with our all-new Assignments, plus five shiny Trophies.
The maps we chose for this expansion pack are all classic fan favorites: Wake Island, Sharqi Peninsula, Gulf of Oman, and Strike at Karkand (from where the expansion pack got its name). These maps are about all-out warfare in a variety of settings and have collectedly been played literally billions of times by our players.
Now, they are due for a reimagining with the power of the Frostbite 2 engine. This allows us do things like take the level of destruction to ridiculous heights. You can...
110w ago - Following up on the Uncharted 3 PS3 EBOOT Fix for 3.55 and 3.41 Custom Firmware comes a Battlefield 3 PS3 EBOOT Fix for CFW users from PlayStation 3 scene release group Duplex this weekend!
From the PS3 NFO (Battlefield.3.Eboot.Patch.PS3-DUPLEX) File, to quote: DUPLEX has done it again - here's an eboot patch to play the retail Disc based version from your hdd - on CFW 3.55 !!
We would usually just support BLUS30762 (Battlefield.3.PS3-DComics - Dcomics release!) , since we do not acknowledge lame region dupes. It's just a waste of traffic unless the nfo clearly states a difference to the first release (like different or additional languages etc).
But since the BLES01275 (Battlefield_3_EUR_PS3-ABSTRAKT) dupe contains several new languages, we added a patch for it too.
Included are updates, cracks and param.sfo's for both versions : BLUS30762 and BLES01275
1.) copy BLUS or BLES files to a FAT32 USB Key/USB Disk
2.) install the *DUPLEX*.Patch.v1.01.pkg
3.) install the *DUPLEX*.Crack.pkg
4.) run game from multiman and let it patch your param.sfo (alternatively take the one from our pack and replace it manually)
5.) play from...
