Battlefield 3's 'Back to Karkand' will be part of regular map rotation

With everything we thought we knew about the "Back to Karkand" expansion for Battlefield 3, we were surprised when the official @Battlefield Twitter noted (since deleted) the DLC would be "a separate map rotation," like the Vietnam expansion for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

EA informs us the official message from the company was incorrect. The PR director for Battlefield 3 told Joystiq, "Back to Karkand maps will be part of the same rotation as the base maps."

We asked if this would hold true for all future Battlefield 3 DLC, but were informed the company hasn't announced details for future DLC and is currently focused on launching Karkand. The Back to Karkand content will be available sometime in December for $15, or free to those who pre-ordered the Limited Edition copy of the game.%Gallery-137898%
