Remember back when DICE was taking pre-orders for Battlefield 3? Like a lot of games, it offered two different DLC packs through two different pre-order programs. Pre-order from one outlet and you’d get the Back to Karkand DLC pack. Pre-order from another, you got the Physical Warfare DLC pack. But you could only achieve one or the other.
This ****** off quite a few Battlefield fans, and even resulted in a boycott of the game by fans who were annoyed they could never get All The DLC. In order to cool things down, Electronic Arts and DICE compromised by announcing that they’d give away the Physical Warfare pack to everybody sometime in the future, for the low cost of free.
The pack comes with new weapons — the Type 88 LMG, a Flash Suppressor for the SKS Sniper Rifle, the DAO-12 Shotgun and Flachette ammo to fire with it. The Physical Warfare pack is available for download on PC and Xbox 360 right now; Playstation Network players have had it available to them for a while.
