EA has released a gameplay trailer of the upcoming Back to Karkland expansion pack for their top selling Battlefield 3 title. The forklift had me rolling when I watched it this morning.

This year’s two biggest military shooters, both released within the last 30 days, are, of course, Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3. IGN has pitted the two in a head-to-head competition by putting the players (read: IGN’s readers) in charge of the outcome across three categories: graphics, multiplayer, and campaign.

EA and Dr. Pepper teamed up, again, to offer an exclusive downloadable content via codes with Dr. Pepper specially marked drinks. Unfortunately only in the US. The special codes can be used to redeem a selection of content for the game unattainable in any other way, including six dog tags such as Hello Kitty, Halloween, Rebecca Black’s Friday (I know) and more. You can also unlock a PlayStation Home avatar and a couple of multiplayer skins.
