BC2 sold me on the series, the formula and the amazing engine. Hope Frostbite 2 is all it's being hyped up to be and this game lives up the reputation folks have given number two in the series. Looking forward to seeing the trailer.

Intriguing. I'm curious how you think DICE could screw Battlefield up. It's a pretty solid formula and DICE would have to do something really stupid (like not have a public beta, ignore bugs from previous games, rely solely on console security, etc.) to create anything but quality.

How dice could fuck up Battlefield 3, the first real battlefield game since Battlefield 2: Make it like Bad Company. BC is a fun game, don't get me wrong, but it's not Battlefield.

Trailer: http://www.ea.com/ba...deos/bf3-teaser

Uneventful, but it confirms jets are back in (thank god). 64 players on PC, and prone is back as well. So far so good, now give me some screens, DICE.

Hopefully we'll get some real scans soon. That diffuse interreflection, though. Looks fantastic.

Is this the first gameplay footage?
Low quality Youtube video

Edit: Ah, better quality download

That is pretty...

Dem animations. Looks great.

I really want a big long multiplayer gamplay session, though. I guess we'll probably see that on March 1st.

Absolutely, I can only imagine what multiplayer trailers Dice could make with that engine. Battlefield 1942 and Halo 1 are my two classic LAN party games, so I've got really high hopes for this. Especially when I keep getting glances of those screens while writing this post... god that's pretty.

So apparently both this and MW3 could be at GDC, according to a mysterious Modern Warfare style countdown clock:
http://kotaku.com/#!5770396/is-it-time...n-warfare-3-yet

God, I would love it if Battlefield 3 just dwarfs MW3 in every way, I know it's kind of clich? to hate on Activision, but it's very fun and they deserve whatever they get for shutting down Bizarre.

I've got to wonder if they've even had anyone working on the CoD engine since IW got destroyed. For whatever team has that job, it's gotta be difficult to learn the ins and outs of a game engine within a year or so, then also improve that engine to any noticeable degree, especially when DICE is your competitor.

There's a part of me that wants to declare BF3 a CoD killer from those few seconds of gameplay footage.

Edit: Countdown site was a hoax, disappointingly.

It really wouldn't take much. It's been made blatantly obvious with MW2 and Black Ops that whoever is at the helm is too chickenshit to change anything about the Call of Duty formula. The series will never again come close to what CoD 4 accomplished.

I really want to see what BF3 is made of, and if that will actually be how the game looks (on PC).

I am not at all opposed to getting Battlefield 3 instead of Modern Warfare 3.

Looks pretty. I hope it's good on the xbox. I haven't played a console Battlefield game that I've enjoyed. I think that's the reason CoD has been king the last few years.
