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.

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.
***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.
I originally got the Karkland expansion free with my Limited Edition game I bought for PS3.
I have since also gotten the game on PC, and as the LE was for preorder only, I needed to buy the Karkland pack. I ended up grabbing it for 50% off which was a great deal, but even if it wasn't on sale if you like the standard game you will like the added maps and weapons from this DLC.
Just as a side note, the LE versions that are floating around out there for sale are priced higher so you might as well buy the standard ed and the DLC and pay the same price. Or if you play your cards right can save some money. The standard game goes on sale occasionally for $30-$40 and the DLC went on sale for $7.50. So in theory you can buy the whole thing for around $40 or $50 all in. No need to pay more than $60 for the LE.
It's a good buy in my opinion.
Patience, or pass.
