So do you think this will take Crysis's crown? I cannot find any game that beats it, especially maxed out 16xAA. I suppose it's hard to compare jungle with urban.

Yeah I would say so, I mean graphics will probably be better, the destruction will def be a step up. In Crysis you could mow trees down and blow down some wooden sheds but that was no big deal, BF3 will step this up. BF BC2 was pretty amazing. Sound and the movement of characters will be far better and the game will be a million times more fun than Crysis ever was. BF2 was and still is my favourite game of all time, so I hope its a worthy successor. And please bring back Capture the flag!!! I still remember all the fun times I had playing CTF in Desert Combat!!!!!!!!

I hope they sort out the bugs before shipping it though, geez I remember some of the terrible times with BF2 and BF BC2 was unplayable for the first week!! ooooh that was not cool

E3 2011 in Los Angeles is only a few days away and there is a lot of excitement in the air. We are thrilled to be at the expo to show you Battlefield 3! We are currently putting the final touches on our demo - testing, tweaking, and in general, creating a game that’s looking amazing. I’m very happy and proud of what our DICE team has accomplished and what we’ll be unveiling to the world at E3.

Following our Battlefield 3 announcement earlier this spring, a lot of you have asked us for more info on multiplayer. Well, wait no further – we will be showing both single player and multiplayer gameplay at E3! You can expect new trailers and screenshots as well as in-depth press previews hitting next week. You can also watch the EA press conference live on EA.com on Monday.

So what can you expect from the Battlefield 3 multiplayer? Powered by the Frostbite 2 engine, Battlefield 3 features some of the biggest and most spectacular maps that we have built. At the same time, we are also able to create more intense close-quarter combat than ever before. The multiplayer map, “Operation Métro,” available for press to play on the show floor, combines both sides of the scale into one cohesive experience. Gamers will experience a physical battlefield and be able to temporarily disable vehicles, go prone, mount weapons, lay down suppressive fire and more. Under the hood, the brand-new engine ensures cutting-edge visuals and immersion. All things combined, big and small, add up to the best Battlefield game we have ever created!


Of course there are things we will not be showing at E3, including the game’s extensive co-op campaign, the introduction of Team Death Match mode and the Battlefield 3 Battlelog web destination – featuring powerful social tools, feeds and detailed player stats. Battlelog also lets you manage your friends lists, squad up, create platoons, use voice chat and follow your friends’ progress in real-time, and more. Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)... zero dollars. We look forward to providing more information on these features in the near future!

General Manager, DICE

Free online profile and team management... hmm... I wonder how hard they had to twist EA's arm to pull that off?

Mixed emotions reading that sentence. I started with pissed off when I read monthly fee then laughed and said no CoD bull**** when I hit zero dollars. DICE is pretty awesome!

Yes, by twitter and by the main engine coder, so I would tend to believe it.
Anyway, we really do not know how the game performs before all the features are in, so let's wait for beta.
