Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand download freezes

With no doubt battlefield 3 is one of the best action FPS game with jaw breaking visuals and well programmed multi-player experience, EA always has been releasing tons of paid expansion packs to keep the game-play going but sometimes things don’t go as they should especially when we talk specifically about the origin and it games. EA released the Expansion Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand to download on PC and consoles featuring new maps, dog tags, weapons and vehicles to enhance the destruction in the battlefield, but the whole expansion is a web of problems and bugs. PC players are facing comparatively fewer problems than PS3 players, I was playing on the map Gulf Of Oman on my PS3 , the game occasionally freezes and sometimes it becomes totally unresponsive and the only way around is to restart the PS3. I really had the hard time downloading this huge expansion, resume capability is almost broken and sometimes downloading stops somewhere near 10-15 percent and displays error. Downloading it for several times somehow I had success but it was a disaster to know game still is broken and freezes in the middle of epic shooting action. I was not sure what was the problem, it may have been my PS3 fault but after doing a quick Google search, I figured it out that it was a problem for the majority of players on PS3 and some on PC.

Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand download freezes – Gamers are in Rage:

Here are some of the comments I found on forums and different pages how Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand is producing rage among battlefield players:

‘‘So I have never had any issues with BF3 multiplayer but I downloaded the new patch and got Back to Karkland and now half the time I play I spawn without any equipment, and if I finish the game like that it freezes.”

”My download reaches about 10-20% and then it freezes, I left it for about 10 minutes and it didn’t change, I’ve noticed others have experienced this problem, upon restart my PS3 said it had corrupted software on it, what is the solution?”

”I have never had any problems with BF3 on my PS3. But after installing Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand, BF3 freezes about 5-10 minutes in a game.Whats up with that? Anyone else have this problem? I have tried re-installing BF3 and Karkand pack but no luck!”

”My system keeps on freezing when playing new maps. It has happened 10 times already.. I’ve only been able to play a full match of wake island and gulf of oman, the other 2 freeze within 1-3 min of playing time ”

”I’m tired of this! Just downloaded the new patch and they say I have to re-download the expansion pack… and when I try to download it it just completely freezes! ”

I don’t know, when EA and origin would stop ruining my weekend when I just want to sit back, relax and enjoy my games hope it will get fixed soon.
