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.

Battlefield 3 will release this Fall. The exact contents of the Limited Edition will be revealed around GDC.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

Fuck yes, jets. I hope the PS3 version can handle more players than the 360, it would be bullshit if we were limited to 24 especially on the bigger maps.


chance of psn handling more people then xbl is -5%.

but hurray for prone

I love playing recon, so I'm really happy that prone is being added. Now I can get up on a hill in some trees and lay down smokeyface

The only reason I try to avoid getting these FPS games on PC is because they get hacked to shit

it's not the network limitations it's the console handling that many players. Example, Frontlines on 360 had 50 players but lagged like fuck. Mag on PS3 had slightly worse graphics, but ran 256 with not much lag. This should be able to do 64 on PS3 no problem.

i remember reading that they did some tricks to split shit up to get the 256.

but yeah, pretty sure resistance 2 was 64.

Yeah, Bf2 Modern Combat for ps2 was my first Battlefield game, where you double tapped prone button while shooting your target. Good times, team killing and playing obnoxious rap music while talking shit on mic.

Best fps ever imo.

Modern Combat was a horrible console spinoff of BF2
Feb 19, 2011 @ 16:36
True, true.


I really hope this shit is as raw as I think it's going to be.

Three things about this game. First of all, this is the true sequel to BF2 on the PC. This aint related to that Bad Company garbage on the console. Second,DICE is developing this with the PC in mind. That means 32 vs 32 on a server. That means not dealing with the jokes we see in Xbox live. And three, finally we game made fo real war FPS multiplayer. This is the game not for the COD trash.

"That’s the magic. The game will look very good, even on 360.”


I have my hopes up. Still waiting on deals for PS3 pre-order. I'm hoping amazon, target or walmart will have a gift card if pre-ordered tongueface

Also.. Obviously the game looks too good on single player. I hear they gimp it down for multiplayer. Hopefully we get a multiplayer glimpse soon.

Shit's probably going to be deemed best fps multiplayer of the decade.


Oh, and no killstreaks, you get pins and medals.

Jets, improved destruction, aiming, mechanics, lighting/overall graphics, explosions, aftershock, prone, artillery strikes added with everything else available such as the the various choppers, tanks, vehicles, and weapons.

Not trying to be sarcastic with this but technically 2011 is the start of the decade, so if this might end up being the best of the decade it isn't saying a lot since the decade just started. And if you mean it'd be the best for the rest of the decade then that's pretty premature with 9 more years to go.
Mar 06, 2011 @ 03:41
=.=

possibly labeled the best multiplayer fps created thus far.*
Mar 16, 2011 @ 20:25

burr

I'm done with call of duty.

Mar 17, 2011 @ 14:08
How you going to be a sniper with a 50 and miss at that range. IDIOT!

I want to see multiplayer gameplay.
Mar 19, 2011 @ 16:00
this game's graphic is sooooo nice!!!
trailer looked like a movie
Mar 21, 2011 @ 00:54
If people actually buy this one itll be dope. if it had the following of COD/halo it would be one of the best FPS.
