    Battlefield 3

    Here is a short expo on this great title.


    Battlefield 3 is the true successor to Battlefield 2. Beyond our signature multiplayer, we have also included a full single-player campaign and a co-op campaign – all straight out of the box. As for fan favorite features, how does the return of jets, prone, and 64-player multiplayer (on PC) sound? All this built with our powerful new game engine Frostbite 2, which you’ll hear and see a lot of in the months leading up to launch. For the full reveal on Battlefield 3, stay tuned for links to our cover stories hitting the gaming press throughout February, starting with Game Informer right now.

    the trailer makes one thing exceedingly clear: Battlefield 3 is aimed squarely at Call of Duty players, with an amped-up, all action approach.

    Electronic Arts has been vocal about its desire to dominate the first person shooter market. They missed that mark with Medal of Honor (which is nevertheless getting another installment), and as popular as Battlefield Bad Company 2 was, it never came close to reaching Black Ops heights in sales terms.
    Battlefield 3 could be the game that finally realizes EA’s ambitions for the FPS genre.

    The pre-order version of the game, which is simply going by Battlefield 3 Limited Edition, will come with some free content to build upon the experience in-game. By pre-ordering, you will receive the Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand expansion pack at no additional charge – free DLC, the way we like it.

    The expansion pack includes four maps from Battlefield 2, fully revamped with the updated Frostbite 2 engine with enhanced physics and visuals. Also in the pack are weapons and vehicles from Battlefield 2, as well as additional achievements, trophies and rewards to unlock.

    Pre-ordered it yesterday. Not sure about all the talk of "we're going to be #1" but I'm still very excited.

    I'm mildly worried about it being targeted towards the CoD kiddies....hopefully they just mean action instead of "camp, camp, camp, airstrike, attack dogs, camp, stab from 10 feet away, halo jump to prone, napalm, camp."

    If they break my Battlefield in order to copy CoD, Imma be pissed.

    I think a lot of the core mechanics will still be there. It's just going to get a major face lift.

    I wouldn't mind if they up it to squad sized groups instead of fireteams...

    Or change up the squad selection to mirror PC, and actually let you choose a squad, instead of assigning you to a random group.

    BF3 and its incredible marketing budget will do what the Bad Company games failed to do: start appealing to players who want to try out something that offers a different type of reward, a change of pace, and a more realistic experience than Call of Duty. The arcade values of the CoD games are certainly what leads to their huge success among hardcore gamers — their gameplay is immediately rewarding and fast paced. Battlefield, though, is much more rewarding to players who want to be part of a team rather than just a gung-ho gamer. It’s fun trying to keep my teammates alive with a defibrillator, throwing out med packs, and being useful. Battlefield isn’t a franchise that is conducive to the kind of player who wants to be the one man who can win a match by player kills alone.

    Battlefield 3 has already impressed us with near photo-realistic visuals, but now the game’s executive producer has warned that while the console versions of the game may still be the best gamers have ever seen, there are going to be a few disappointed fans who notice the differences.
    “What we’re showing on PC might look better than on console…but what we’ll show on console doesn’t look worse than any other game out there. It’s probably even better than every other game out there on console.
    “Most people will be very positive because they might be afraid that it won’t look as good as other games and it will, and some people will of course be disappointed that it doesn’t look like the PC version.”

    Damn, I hope the visuals are not as bad as they are making them out to be. I have really high hopes for this game. Especially after BC2 and it's awesomeness.

    From what i've read visuals will be at minimum on par with BC2 graphics but likely better. And with the destruction 3.0, we should see a beautiful increase in destructibility

    Gaming is staying up 'til 3am to earn a trophy that isn't real.......BUT IS
