Battlefield 3 is a having a great day. First, EA gave up a Battlefield 3 gameplay trailer and now we have details on BF3 pre-order bonuses. The trailer shows off in game action and confirms we can expect to see the game at the end of this year.
Not sure what to make of the trailer? This is the game's official description. "In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines. As the first boots on the ground, players will experience heart-pounding missions across diverse locations including Paris, Tehran and New York. As a U.S. Marine in the field, periods of tension and anticipation are punctuated by moments of complete chaos. As bullets whiz by, as walls crumble, as explosions force players to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before." Sold yet?

Battlefield 3 pre-orders will include a digital expansion pack called Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand. The expansion is specifically for multiplayer and will include four legendary maps from 2005's Battlefield 2. You're not being given old maps though, they've all been updated with Battlefield 3's engine Frostbite 2 and will have upgraded "physics, destruction and visuals." The pack will have Battlefield 2 weapons, vehicles, and achievements/trophies.
Pre-orders will only be available for a limited time or while supplies last.
Get ready for Battlefield 3 on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 this fall.
