I don't know which to look forward to more; this, or Bad Company 3.

 

Hadn't seen the Game Informer cover before. It's nice. inlove.gif

Nice of them to give the beta to people who bought MoH when there's legions of fans out there who own every Battlefield ever released.

The whole "Dice sets it's sights on Call Of Duty" part has me worried. I hope by that they mean to blow that sh*tfest franchise out of the water rather than simply outdo them.

Aren't those two things one and the same? I don't see anywhere where they imply that they're trying to imitate CoD in any way. Yet that seems to be how many fans are interpreting it.

Bad Company 3 isn't something to look forward to if you really want the best Battlefield game ever. Thing is though, I highly doubt this is really going to be that good. I'm actually kind of thinking that BC2 + Vietnam Expansion are going to be Dice's best products.

 

In short: they've been giving too much console attention/focus to their products last years... do your own math.

 

edit some more Game Informer "info":

 

 

The franchise that revolutionized online multiplayer for PC games is back.

 

In our world-exclusive cover story, Game Informer unveils the first numbered entry in the Battlefield series since 2005. Many longtime fans are wondering, "what took so long?!" DICE has honed the concept for the true sequel for years, but it wasn't until the company developed the powerful new Frostbite 2 engine that it felt all the pieces were in place to create a proper follow-up. Armed with powerful upgrades like deferred rendering, real-time radiosity, a new animation system borrowed from the EA Sports label, and an exponential leap in destructibility, executive producer Patrick Bach dubs Frostbite 2 "the best piece of technology on the market when it comes to building games."

 

 

You'll have to read the magazine to get the dirt on what DICE has in store for the single-player and multiplayer modes, but check back here and visit the official Battlefield 3 site tomorrow to watch the premiere teaser trailer and glean a few more key details.

 

Frequent the Battlefield 3 hub throughout the month of February for more exclusive features about the highly anticipated shooter coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC.

 

The artwork looks goddamn boss I have to say...

Well that was certainly pointless and shallow. All I can tell from that is that blue is the new brown.

 

And I'll be goddamned if this doesn't end up being a console shooter with PC elements - y'know, 64 players on maps made for 32-player console MP, keyboard support and that sort of dumbass stuff. I'll keep the ranting down to a minimum until we get some more information, though.

 

EDIT: 64 players, prone (f*ck YEAH) and jets CONFIRMED! Also co-op and single player campaign.

I like the coverart... but this teaser is just some f*cked up bullsh*t. They should've done a decent teaser. Luckily they haven't done any Modern Warfare 2/Black Ops bullsh*t like teaser.

 

I like the logo aswell, don't dig the f*cked up 'Battlefield' tune. They could've done alot better on that front.

 

Edit: What the f*ck Co Op & Singleplayer? Sounds pretty boss to me. I do hope they're going to keep BC and BF as seperate franchises. One more serious, the other somewhat more goofy (When it comes to singleplayer that is, BC2/Vietnam are srs bizznizz).

 

I really want a copy of that Game Informer March edition...

It's a teaser, it's meant to tease, keep the watchers interested.

 

And I think that was actually a good teaser, we saw some distorted gameplay, and heard the BF theme tounge.gif Got me pumped up.

Can't wait for this! I love BF2 so much and i always play it. Wonder if they'll stray off what made the second one so good.

 

Also here's some more details.

 

"In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding single player missions and competitive multiplayer actions ranging across diverse locations from around the globe including Paris, Tehran and New York."

 

Game features were listed as follows:

 

Frostbite 2 - Battlefield 3 introduces Frostbite 2, the incredible technology that takes animation, destruction, lighting, scale and audio to new heights. Built upon this powerful game engine, Battlefield 3 immerses players physically and emotionally to the world around them like never before.

 

Feel the Battle - Feel the impact of bullets and explosions, drag your fallen comrades into safety, and mount your weapon on almost any part of the terrain. Battlefield 3's cutting edge animation, spectacular visuals and real as hell battle gameplay attack your senses and make you feel the visceral warriors experience like no other FPS.

 

Unparalleled Vehicle Warfare - The best online vehicle warfare experience gets even better with a fitting sonic boom as fighter jets headline impressive lineup of land, air and sea vehicles.

 

Urban Combat - Take the fight to iconic and unexpected places in the USA, Middle East, and Europe including claustrophobic streets, metropolitan downtowns, and open, vehicle-friendly landscapes as you fight your way through the war of tomorrow.

New York should be quite interesting, especially with the destruction in the Frostbite engine. Thanks for sharing that image, sexy indeed.

 

EDIT: Made two avatars.

The settings make it even more exciting for me, New York, Paris and Tehran, that's a great mix there of different settings which should all be very fun to play and 64 player online sounds great with fighter jets and sh*t, this is definitely another game that I have to get.

I like how you all freaked out, then edited your posts. Funny.

 

Personally, I'm loving everything. The music. A teaser that's actually a tease. Information, glorious information. inlove.gif

Well i'm damn happy that this game finally has proper information, I sorta skipped BF2 when it comes to the Battlefield games but I am very tempted to go find a complete collection of it and give it a play, but damn i'm happy Jets are in for this but I hope they don't give Jets and Prone to just the PC audience, it'd be nice for them to let console players have a bash at them too, though i'm fine with 64 players sticking to PC as 60+ players on console can get a bit much, as evident if you played Resistance 2 online.

I hate teasers. Information = almost 0 but too much hype like it's some nice 3-minute trailer.

I'm still freaking out. Only now I'm hyped up for the game. I'll be goddamned if the maps on the PC aren't larger than its console counterpart. What's the use of 64 players on a map made for 32 players? It'd be like playing BF2 with the map set to medium size. The few servers that had that running were god-awful.

Reminds me of all those Strike At Karkand maps. Way too small for the amount of people that do be playing on them.

Yeah, that's what I meant. Imagine Karkand, but cut off at the eastern bridge and then having 64 players on that. Chaos. Complete and utter stupid chaos. Of course, one solution would be to just play on 32 player servers, but then what's the point of even having 64 players as an option? If most maps are the size of BC2's Heavy Metal, it'd be swell.

 

I'm stoked about the game nonetheless, big maps or no.

Yeah, you can't really move because you either get sniped, killed or raped my tanks. But i agree big open maps like Heavy Metal would be nice. Wonder what new features will be included.
