Battlefield 3 gets 'physical' in UK with Limited Edition

Like Battlefield: Bad Company 2 before it, Battlefield 3 will be arriving at retail in a regularly priced "Limited Edition," encouraging folks to pre-order the game before its planned fall launch. The UK will get the "Physical Warfare" version for the same price as the regular edition, which includes a small arsenal of weaponry, as well as access to the "Back to Karkand" multiplayer expansion -- four remade maps from Battlefield 2.

As this edition has only been announced for the UK thus far, it can only be ordered from GAME and GameStation for now, running the standard £39.99 on 360/PS3 and £34.99 on PC. That said, when EA initially confirmed the "Back to Karkand" expansion, DICE community manager Daniel Matros noted that it would be available worldwide via an in-box code.

In the meantime, peruse the full "Limited Edition" armory after the break.

  • Type 88 light machine gun
  • SKS sniper rifle flash suppressor
  • DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun
  • Flechette Ammo (for DAO-12)
