Remember the old BF2 teaser b.s. info propaganda?

I'll wait till they actually release the darn game and then see how well it glitters.

Battlefield 3 Wages War With Groundbreaking Frostbite 2 Game Engine Technology

DICE Announces Massive Pre-order Incentive for Fall Blockbuster

DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio, the makers of the multi-platinum Battlefield: Bad Company™ series today announced a massive pre-order incentive for Battlefield 3™, the long-awaited successor to the epic, internationally acclaimed 2005 game, Battlefield 2™.

Battlefield 3 leaps ahead of its time with the power of Frostbite™ 2, DICE’s new cutting-edge game engine. This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and character animation utilizing ANT technology from the latest EA SPORTS™ games.

The experience doesn’t stop with the engine – it just starts there. In single-player, multiplayer and co-op, Battlefield 3 is a near-future war game depicting international conflicts spanning land, sea and air. Players are dropped into the heart of the combat whether it occurs on dense city streets where they must fight in close quarters or in wide open rural locations that require long range tactics.

“We are gearing up for a fight and we’re here to win,” said Karl Magnus Troedsson, General Manager, DICE. “Where other shooters are treading water Battlefield 3 innovates. Frostbite 2 is a game-changer for shooter fans. We call it a next-generation engine for current-generation platforms.”

In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines. As the first boots on the ground, players will experience heart-pounding missions across diverse locations including Paris, Tehran and New York. As a U.S. Marine in the field, periods of tension and anticipation are punctuated by moments of complete chaos. As bullets whiz by, as walls crumble, as explosions force players to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before.

“We wanted to create the most immersive and emotionally powerful Battlefield game ever and we needed new technology to deliver on our vision,” said Patrick Bach, Executive Producer. “Battlefield 3 preserves the franchise’s signature sandbox style and even brings back classic fan favorites like jets, going prone and 64-player multiplayer on PC.”

Those anxious to start the fight can pre-order the Battlefield 3 Limited Edition now at www.battlefield.com. The Battlefield 3 Limited Edition includes Battlefield 3™: Back to Karkand at no extra charge.* This themed expansion pack features four legendary maps from Battlefield 2 boldly re-imagined with Frostbite 2 physics, destruction and visuals. Completing the package are classic Battlefield 2 weapons and vehicles, unique rewards, new achievements/trophies, and more.

Battlefield 3 will be available this Fall for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the PC. For more information on Battlefield 3 please visit www.battlefield.com, and for the latest news on Battlefield 3 follow us on Twitter: @battlefield.

*Conditions and restrictions apply. See http://eastore.ea.com/battlefield3 for details.
hope i can score a job soon so I can build a pc for this year!

Have to say....I'm getting very excited about this game. That ingame footage looked awesome and the lighting too.

I wonder if that was PC footage or Console ? either way it looked amazing...

It appears that zh1nt0 has confirmed that the four maps in the Return to Karkand expansion pack are going to be: Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, Sharqi Peninsula, and Wake Island. Which of these is not like the others?

Well that just secured my pre-order. I loved all four of those maps, and I probably spent more time playing Wake and Karkand than any other map in BF2!
