From the Manufacturer
Utilizing the power of Frostbite 2, the Back to Karkand expansion pack remasters four of the most popular Battlefield multiplayer maps in the franchise’s history all with enhanced levels of destruction, including Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula. In addition to these four new maps, Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand marks the return of the classic Conquest Assault mode from Battlefield 2. A twist on the beloved Conquest mode, Conquest Assault starts one team in command of all control points on the map while the opposing team must assault and take the flags over in order to stop their tickets from bleeding down to zero. Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand also features three new vehicles, ten new weapons, five new dog tags, five new achievements/trophies and an added layer of persistence where players complete assignments to unlock items and earn rewards.

You will now need to go to My Games and update Battlefield 3 to play Back to Karkand.
For me, I didn't have to update anything in my game once I activated the game. (Karkand may have come with that 4GB patch release a while ago.) Anyway, I just started a game, and joined a Karkand map. Truth be told, I too was confused as to how to activate the game until I came across a post by EA. I hope this helps.
it is great the only thing that i hate is conquest assault i dont like it that much but the maps are way better than the vanilla version maps. for 15$ this is just awesome.
I played hours upon hours of BF2 back in the day and I can say that the updated versions of the maps are much more enjoyable. There isn't any jet/helo camping like in the old one and infantry combat it plentiful.
If you already have BF3, get this expansion. It makes the game fixed, not just better, but fixed.
I played the BETA for PS3 when it came out, and immediately got addicted. But you jhave to have a clean brain (no drugs or alcohol), so that you can think/react extremely fast to keep up with the big-dogs online.
Graphics sucked in the BETA, but are better, even on the lowest setting on my PC, than the PS3.
I love how you can level-up your character and weapons, get IR scopes, and destroy pretty-much the entire map!
Very realistic Sound makes you have to turn up your home theatre system, and you'd never know you werent in a real war zone.
Also, the addition of a SINGLE PLAYER campaign was a nice surprise.
I dont normally buy a $60 game when they first come out, but this one was definately worth it.
It is kinda stupid that you have to be on-line in order to play (even just single player), mabey they'll fix that little problem in #4, but for now, i have internet, so I'm not complaining.
But if you want the most out of your game, expect to upgrade your graphics card, get high-speed internet, and pull the drug-needle outta your arm, or you're screwed.
So here it is in a Nutshell:
1. Full of Glitches and Hackers.
2. You're given Installation Discs, and When you ask EA for Help, they either Ignore you, or tell you you're Stupid, and Cant Read.
EA Live Chat told me They cant help me, because someone hacked my online Account, and Chnaged all my User info, Email, and Security Question. Then the Jackass tells me it's an ONLINE-ONLY game, WHICH IT IS DOES NOT STATE THAT ON THE Game Case ! ! !
Ultimately, BOYCOTT EA. They dont give a damn anymore, so we should show them what we think of their recent change into CRAP-DIRECTION, and stop buying their Garbage.
It's NETFLIX all over again.
"Origin, as usual, is having issues."
This worked for me!
Because I had install problems I only got to play the add-on a little bit before I posted this but it looks good so far.
***UPDATE*** 8/31/2012 I have to admit that this game is all about being on line and what's the good news most people I have had the oppurtunity to play with have been gentlemen and a, and I hate to say it, but dog gone nice folks. When I firt got it I was a little sour on it because of the singleplayer/campaign mode. It seems this is the real deal for people who enjoy this sort of thing and by golly they do it in a way that should make the developer proud. Frankly I was surprized. I have purchased other games and it seems when you play it on line after going through the single player mode it's like your'e trying to shoot at pogo sticks. Not so this game. This is one of the more pleasant surprizes I have had in the Multi-Player arena and sure there are others too but for a game you buy because it looks like fun and are wary of the on line thing well all I can say is it is well worth it if you like this sort of game play, you will not be too disappointed....later.
BTW the DLC thing was an Origin hang up and they straightened it all out with one phone call. Another caveat is I never thought I'd see the day where I thought Steam & Origin was a deal, but atleast Origin answers the phone with nice folks...live and learn. Both are looking out for the product and both try to do the right thing. Nuff Said. Oh yeah one more thing this game is one of the best I have ever played and brother I can name you a few.
