Official Battlefield 3 Thread
 
In the coming weeks I'm sure there will be more.... details, screenshots, explanations of the technologies etc....

The first Battlefield 3 details could be hitting the Internet pretty soon if the GDC 2011 schedule is anything to go by.

The 2011 schedule contains a lecture from Kenny Magnusson, a senior lighting and VFX artist at EA DICE.

Below is a preview of the lecture;

"This session presents a detailed overview of the new lighting system implemented in DICEs Frostbite 2 engine and how it enables us to stretch the boundaries of lighting in BATTLEFIELD 3 with its highly dynamic, varied and destructible environments."

"BATTLEFIELD 3 goes beyond the lighting limitations found in our previous battlefield games, while avoiding costly and static prebaked lighting without compromising quality."

"We discuss the technical implementation of the art direction in BATTLEFIELD 3, the workflows we created for it as well as how all the individual lighting components fit together: deferred rendering, HDR, dynamic radiosity and particle lighting."

In order for this lecture to be successful you would expect at least a little of the game to be shown so the chances of seeing an official reveal before then isn't such a crazy idea.
:D Well, that' a start!

Would be nice! But I suspect we will be stuck with 24-player (or less) games because that seems to be 'the norm' for consoles :(

What about new game play mechanics? I could care less about some new coat of paint

I played the original BF with desert combat mod, probably more than any other game.
It pisses me off that with each new game, they try harder to mimic Call of Duty.

Crysis 32 players -> Crysis 2 12 players
BF2 64 players -> 32 players on PC

Hopefully they do 64 player maps for BF3 and BTW aren'tthey going to release a "BF2 evolution" game with FB 1.5 and thus port over the 16-64 player maps, no? Hope they keep the 64 number...

Considering they have to make the gameplay compatible with consoles, I don't expect anything more than 64 player games, if 48 even
