In a brief post on Battlefield 3's official message board, DICE Global Battlefield Community Manager Daniel Matros revealed the four maps from 2005's Battlefield 2 that will be available in the "Back to Karkand" map pack that comes with the game at launch, if you pre-order it. Here are your retro-multiplayer maps:
- Wake Island,
- Strike at Karkand,
- Gulf of Oman
- Sharqi Peninsula
No comment on whether any other older maps will be coming back from the dead.

These older maps have been updated with Battlefield 3's Frostbite 2 engine, and will have upgraded "physics, destruction and visuals." The pack will have Battlefield 2 weapons, vehicles, and achievements/trophies.
