D2D offering the non-Limited edition as far as I know, also is it true that I can't patch it (when there will be a patch) if its not opened to download (to Iraq) from EA store??
All pre-orders will be the limited edition (get the Return to Karkand expansion, at no extra charge). It doesn't matter if the site selling it labels it as the limited edition. It is, because it is a pre-order.

Besides Steam, patches don't normally depend on the vendor you bought the game from. They are typically freely available from multiple download locations, for free.

I also expect BF3 to continue the process started with BFBC2, where it checks for and downloads the latest patch from a public EA site (static.cdn.ea.com, not the EA store), when you start it up.

thanks man and I'm quoting from the EA support chat "patchs for the downloadable games are region specific or related" that is what I understood from them.

Guys,I have a buyer for my MSI GTX 480,but just right now.I thought I would swap it for 580..but now I feel like its not needed,what do you think?would do it for BF3,but its due this fall anyway,3 - 4 months.and a finely OCed 480 is doing just as good as a 580.shall I rather invest into new SSD(the new Agility is pretty good) and power supply?

a 580 is a good idea. Runs faster, cooler and is a little more energy efficient then the 480. on the other hand. a SSD for games or a boot drive is quite nice

harvest day is the best for roadkills. all those sniper noobs never see you coming (even if they do, it is too late)

Heavy Metals issue is, it's a big map, but it's just long, it's wide, but the bases are all in a line, so anyone actually playing the game and going for flags isn't straying off too much. They need to have 4 - 5 flag maps that have staggered flags. Will be more entertaining for everyone.

Dont wanna bring the other mw vs bf thread offtopic so Ill reply here.
Why are you commenting on this if you haven't looked at the ton of BF3 info out there? BF3 has some much more than BC2 it's unreal. Prone, Jets, 64 Player Servers, changed kits, ability to shoot out lights, completely reworked engine. They have changed more going from BC2 to BF3 than has cahnged from CoD 4 to CoD BO. (visit the BF3 clubhouse and check out Gullys posts)
I actually check it everyday. I also expected you would be the first person to reply to my BF3 scepticism as you're one of those that think BF3 will be some sort of revolution in shooters. As much as I would also like it to be a revolutionary title , in the final gameplay its gonna be bc2 with Prone jets 64 players and kits which were already in BF2. So far the ONLY three new things here is going to be loads of animation added that look extremely cool, the character movement and friends/clans/server list. From experience we all know the 3rd is a failure. The animation might be cool for a few good hours of gameplay and then its gonna be hiding wookies in the debris that cant be destroyed and the character movement which I think is the coolest thing about BF3 because it might finally add some realism to close combat fire fights.
I'd rather be surprised on the positive than disappointed when I first play it ;)

I don't think it will be some sort of revolution, BC1 was, with the destructible environments on a large scale. BC2 just added to that as does BF3. Just BF3 adds a lot, your original comment was this.

CODMW1 was fggz.
I for one BF fan around here expect that BF3 will be the same game as BC2, the only change will be scale and a working friends list.
And right off the bat you said you expect it to be the same as BC2, to me that shows you haven't looked much at all into BF3, so I responded as I did, because the list of changes is quite large. You make it sound like BF3 is a rehash, and you throw doubling server size, jets, and prone in the "doesn't mean much at all bin". Those are huge changes, a lot different change than a new name and some new maps for 4 games in a row.

And you also seem to think that much better animations also mean nothing, might as well say the tons of new sound effect works also means nothing. I'm not sure exactly what to you would mean "new content", but you just shot down a bunch of massive changes as meaning absolutely nothing. If your trying to shoot down a bunch of amazing additions just so you can be surprised when you start, you are just looking to shoot holes through any great changes, and there really is no point in talking, as you just want to make everything sound bad.

I'm not sure what you want to see changed about the game, larger maps, better sound effects, new animations, double server size, prone, better graphics, lots of engine work, better lighting, able to shoot out lights, better kit tweaking. There isn't much else they can really change, unless you feel a new name would be better, otherwise, looking at it, thats almost all aspects of the game with a lot of work put into them. But as you would put it "those are the ONLY changes", as if those changes are minuscule. I'm sorry, but I just have to disagree completely.

Come on man prone,large maps,jets already been there in BF2. The fact that they remake BC2 into full BF doesn't mean jets become something NEW. You could say "hey they improved the new COD they added dedicated server,how leet is that!" cause it wasn't a feature in MW2 but was in MW1. For me animation is boring and reminds me of how primitive gaming still is. A real revolution would be if they put all that Mirror Edge dynamic physics and show me how a building can be torn down with a different animation of it each time it happens. I agree there are a few cool things about BF3 but its far from revolutionary shooter.

No probs,I didnt mean it seriously bro :toast:
same here,I dislike the smallest maps,simply because when server full and crowded,with all the noobs hiding in the remains of colapsed buildings and its just too much people shooting on that small area of the map.sometimes you dont even have time to make a step when you spawn and someone shoot you in the back..I "love" those moments when you are spawn killed 4 times in a row.

I agree there are a few cool things about BF3 but its far from revolutionary shooter.
Large maps were also in 1942, so why have that on the list for BF2? Just because a game before had it, doesn't mean a game from a completely different generation of gaming adding it should be discounted. Proof of that is Old Karkand vs New Karkand. Look at the massive differences, the massive maps with the sheer amount of beautiful objects to take cover behind. The large maps that you can actually use Jets to drop buildings, don't glass half full me here, it's going to be epic, far more so than BF2 was.

And no you couldn't say they added dedicated servers. Because BF2 isn't even remotely close to the same engine that BC2 is on, so stop comparing them and expecting all of that old stuff to be in their first next gen title for PC. MW1 and MW2 were on the same engine, and they went backwards and took away features that the previous game on the same engine had. So if thats a gain in your book, then let them take away Destruction of buildings in BF3, then give it back to us, thats a huge gain.

I once again have to say, like I originally thought, you have no looked into this title as much as you think or state you have. Because your example of seeing buildings fall in different ways, is exactly what it happening. In BC2 when you hit a building with a rocket, it shoots out a bunch of smoke and some bricks. In Bf3 when you do, the outer edges of the building will actually snap off and fall. The E3 multiplayer video actually showed the outside wall of a building crushing a player at the end (he died). One of the earlier videos showed the outside of a building snap off, and the outside wall took a about 10ft chunk of the inner floor with it, imagine if you were standing on that floor, what it would feel like to just be propelled out of a building.

And as I said in my previous post, I never said BF3 will be revolutionary, I said BC1 was because no FPS had destruction like that before. So I'm not sure why you ended you post once again saying it won't be revolutionary. But that doesn't mean BF3 isn't bringing a ton of new content to the playing field. I mean if BF2 had big maps and jets, then nothing ever will impress you, they now have to add Space Ships and the ability to exit the atmosphere? There nots much bigger or badder than a single soldier can operate than a Jet realistically, so I'm not sure what else it is that you are looking for.

I think you need to comb through the thread and get up to date on the E3 videos and info like I originally suggested. The ability to shoot out the lights in your surroundings is massive for combat, and the improved destruction is amazing, both huge game changers that you probably haven't seen. I don't mind arguing informed opinion against informed opinion, but it gets me when people without all of the info argue against products.

I've seen all the vids you mention. I strongly suggest you go check out what is the major difference between animation and dynamic physics. I hoped for a revolutionary shooter that is packet with that sorta stuff so that I may finally shoot somebody in his head through a wall with my sniper rifle. This is just eye candy explosive initiated animations.

I strongly suggestion you check the difference between cloth physics and building destruction physics, to compare Mirror's Edge just doesn't work. If you are looking for a revolutionary game, look to a genre defining game, not to a game set in a genre that is based mostly on realism. We expect big maps, jets, guns, because the genre is limited but real life. I don't know why you are set on a revolutionary title, you keep saying it. No one has said this title will be that, awesome is what it will be, bringing a lot of new things to the field. As far as eye candy, thats what the cloth / glass physics are in Mirrors Edge, just merely for looks.

New Battlefield Blog post: Physical Warfare Pack and Back to Karkand questions answered

by HBrun
Posted : Jun 13, 2011, 12:00AM

Q: Is the Physical Warfare Pack available in all regions, or just in the UK?
A: It will be available worldwide at select retailers. It was first announced in the UK. Exact details for other countries and retailers will be announced at a later date.

Q: Will Physical Warfare Pack imbalance the game?
A: The three exclusive items in the Physical Warfare Pack were specifically chosen not to be overpowered or imbalance or break the game in any way.

Q: Why do I want the Physical Warfare Pack?
A: Owning these items will give you a more varied arsenal, but it will not give you a significant advantage on the battlefield.

Q: Is the Back to Karkand expansion pack exclusive to pre-orders?
A: No. You can also buy it separately if you do not pre-order Battlefield 3. Back to Karkand will be available the exact same date after the launch of Battlefield 3 no matter if you pre-ordered or buy it separately.

Q: When will the Back to Karkand expansion pack be released?
A: We have not yet announced the Back to Karkand expansion pack release date.

Q: How much does the Back to Karkand Expansion pack cost?
A: We have not yet announced a price. However, it will be included in the Limited Edition at no extra charge.

Q: Do I have to choose between Back to Karkand and the Physical Warfare Pack as my pre-order bonus?
A: No. There is no way you can pre-order Battlefield 3: Limited Edition and not end up with the Back to Karkand expansion pack at no extra charge. On top of this, select retailers all over the world will carry the Physical Warfare Pack. Exact details for other countries and retailers will be announced at a later date.

Q: Why do you offer pre-order bonus items?
A: Because we believe in rewarding our core fanbase with special offers — such as giving them the Back to Karkand expansion pack at no extra charge.

Most likely this post was prompted by a boycott campaign being organized by the reddit site, to protest exclusives like the Physical Warefare pack.

I dunno. That would be up to GAME/GameStation. You would need to contact them and ask what their policy is.
You can always cancel and re-order it, right?
