The first-person shooter race just took an interesting turn as Electronic Arts has confirmed a release date for Battlefield 3 that puts it weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and some gamers will get to experience it before the game is released.
Battlefield 3 will hit the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 25, 2011. The beta will arrive some time in September for each platform but no details have been announced yet.
Modern Warfare 3 is due out on November 8 so it will be interesting to see how shooter fans react to the choice of being able to get Battlefield 3 first.
