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!

Sounds great but I'm still a little uneasy on making such a graphical game but keep the same "Rag doll" fun effect of the game and not some how or another give it a COD feel. If they keep stats and ranks off it, the game would be even better as it was in 1942 and Vietnam while giving the mod community a leg up.

(Y) Great news all-around. Co-op, stat tracking, all of it.

Good-bye, Call of Duty.

Agreed. I knew they'd come up with a free alternative to "Elite". I can't wait to see some MP gameplay.

Sounds great and I am looking forward to the game, it looks amazing! I love thee Frostbite engine :woot: Looks to be CoD killer for sure, I just hope they fix it to where the bullets are more like bullets and not paintballs. Seems like it take 1-2 clips to kill someone online and about the same for single player, vehicles such as tanks should be a lot stronger to. Mind you I have not played the newest BF game, the last one I played was BFBC1 and 1943. I will be picking this and CoD up for sure :cool:

I don't care about CoD or BF series but DAMN! Do I want to get BF3! The ANT technology behind their animations is really paying off. The animations look amazing. if it wasn't for that small detail I probably wouldn't like it. It's a really small detail that's a big deal for me for some reason. I've always always always hated jerky animations. But this so realistic in that aspect, I love it!
