Battlefield 3 is proving to be one of the most anticipated games of 2011, having already earned over 50 awards including ‘Best Action Game’ and ‘Best Online Multiplayer Game.’ With the beautiful Frostbite 2 engine powering the game and the celebrated Battlefield feel, anybody can see why people are so excited for this one.

The standard edition of the game includes the single-player campaign, all 10 massive co-op maps and multiple multiplayer modes. The Limited Edition comes with a ton of extras to make your experience even better and you can get it at no extra cost.

Gamers who pre-order Battlefield 3 are assured a copy of the Limited Edition, which includes the Back to Karkand post-launch digital expansion pack at no extra charge.
