Battlefield 3’s Back to Karkand DLC Out, Huge Xbox 360 Patch

Xbox 360 and PC gamers can now get their hands on the first DLC pack for DICE and EA‘s successful shooter, Battlefield 3. The gameplay trailer for the pack above accompanied the release.

PlayStation 3 users were able to get this content last week as part of an exclusivity deal with EA.

Xbox 360 users will fire up their games today and be greeted with more than just the chance to land the Back to Karkand DLC pack; they’ll also be given an update for the game. The Battlefield Blog has a massive rundown of the changes being pushed out, and they indicate that this patch is very similar to the ones sent to PC and PlayStation 3 users.

The list of changes is enormous, so head to the blog for the full experience. For good measure, we’ve grabbed a few off our favorites to show you here and now.

  • Removed the hint “Shoot out the lights.” during SP mission Nightshift
  • Grenades now drop to ground if you get killed while attempting to throw it
  • You should no longer spawn too close to enemies in TDM and SQDM
  • Damage from bullets will now continue to cause damage even after the firing user is dead
  • Fixed several Xbox 360 specific crashes and freezes
  • Fixed several issues with friend invites and joins
  • Reduced the physics impact of AA guns and Jet Cannons, players under attack from these weapons should no longer lose control
  • Added round duration and ticket summary at EOR
  • Increased the damage of Helicopter Miniguns, AA guns, and Jet Cannons against infantry

That’s just a tiny smattering of the changes put in place.

If you purchased the Limited Edition of Battlefield 3 and used the code within the box to unlock the game’s multiplayer (if you’re a console gamer, PC gamers need only download the game from Origin), the Back to Karkand DLC pack is free. If not, it will run you $15.00.
