These maps are free if you pre-order right?
My question is how much will they charge if you don't pre-order. I never pre-order and I always laugh at all the people crying about horrible games that they pre-ordered and are now stuck with. BF3 should be good...it better damned well be good...but I really don't want to break my pre-order stance even for BF3, because you never know these days. However if these stupid maps are going to be $20 then I will want to pre-order.

I don't want to have to sit out games on my favorite servers just because I don't have the map...that was the whole reason I bought Northern Strike for BF2142 and I think that was $20 at the time for three maps...and a couple vehicles that are only found on those maps.

Then think of it as a discount for early investors. Stop being a **** about free DLC for preorders. I don't like paid DLCs a whole lot either but id much rather have ones like this that are actually WANTED and FREE FOR ANYONE WITH THE DESIRE TO HAVE IT. jeez

PS- northern strike was brilliant.

Maps.. for $20..

Tell me what game has ever released DLC of any kind for that much.

DLC ranges from $.99 - 9.99. I don't know where you even got $20 from.

You don't have to pre-order it RIGHT NOW. Do it when it's close to release time or when funds are available.

Honestly, if you're a PC gamer and don't plan on pre-ordering BF3 then I don't know what to tell you.
First, This. The game doesn't even come out until Nov. Oh dear god! i can't afford 5 bucks to preorder in the next 5 months! WHAT SHALL I DO?!?!??!?!?!?

Secondly, that's not a screenshot, it's concept art.

It wasn't called a DLC...it was an expansion in those days yet. It added three maps to the game and those maps had two new vehicles on them. The new maps quickly became my favorites, though I didn't care too much for the new vehicles.

And I have no problem with pre-order goodies...infact, I have a problem with games that don't have them and want your money early without giving anything in return but maybe getting the game a day or two earlier. I am going to want to have every map I can get for the game, but I don't want to pre-order. So i am hoping to find a price tag on these. Like I said, in the past they sold a couple extra maps for $20 and i think it might have been $30 at the release of the expansion. So there is no way to know till they let this very key piece of info out.

If they have a high release day price tag it would likely drastically increase their pre-orders so I can't see why they don't let this out...unless they will be cheap.

So before the actual game is even released they're talking about an EX Pack? What is this?

What's the problem? Developers constantly release special pre-order additions to their games these days.

Also, does NO ONE ELSE think there's something deeply wrong with EA's business model, here?

They are absolutely sure that this content is awesome and should be part of everyone's BF3 experience, but instead of aiming to include it at launch in everyone's copy, they allocate it for paid DLC, and incentivize preorders with it.

Think about it, please. They are pitching their "expansion pack" on you BEFORE THE NEW GAME IS EVEN RELEASED. Even BC2's Vietnam was announced and released well after the original game.

I'm tired of this crap.
What textures? It's not even a screenshot. It's a painting that's probably the loading screen for the map.
