Battlefield 3

The more news I read about this game, the more excited I get. Now I'm definitely going to build a new gaming PC once this game is released.

Gameinformer Info leaked!!!


  • A lot of information has trickled out of the GI article and we’ve it all rounded up for you below:
  • Aiming for Q4 2011 release
  • Concept for BF3 has been in the works for years, waiting on proper tech to seamlessly come together
  • Frosbite 2.0 is the culmination of this tech, entirely re-written
  • Lighting sounds neat, one “probe” contains more lighting information than an entire BFBC2 level.
  • Level destruction is going to be “believable” but basically everything is destructible.
  • Character animations powered by ANT, what EA Sports uses.
  • AI characters and multiplayer characters have different animation sets
  • No more “gliding” animations that look off, animation realism is a focus
  • Captured their own war audios (bullets, tanks, helicopters, etc) at different distances to ensure realism
  • Better audio cues for certain actions, more easily able to listen for threats
  • Plan on better, more immediate post release content
  • More unlocks than BFBC2
  • Dice trying to find a good balance between customization of your character and not having “pink rabbit hat(s)”
  • 4 classes
  • Will talk about squads “later”
  • Looking into a theater mode but can’t talk about it
  • Will have co-op
  • There will be a kill-cam but it can be turned off
  • BF3′s team is almost twice as big as the team for BFBC2
  • They want the pacing of the single player mode to be balanced, with highs and lows. Makes the comparison to a song vs a guitar solo.
  • Part of the single player mode takes place in Sulaymaniyah – Iraqi Kurdistan.
  • “****” will be used often, so M rated for sure
  • There will be an earthquake in a level. The destruction sounds very impressive. 7 story building collapses, looks very well done
  • Significant narrative that goes with the SP mode
  • More than one setting, you’re not in the middle east for the whole game
  • PC version is lead version
  • Why 64 players for PC only? No complains from the console crowd.
  • No mod tools at release. Maybe none down the line either. Frosbite 2.0 is complex and mods tools would have to be dumbed down, so does Dice really want to put their time to that or would it be better spent elsewhere?
  • Original story, not based on Bad Company at all.

Thanks for posting that, Massiveterra.

I'm so glad that the PC version is the lead version. It's about damn time we're finally seeing shots of the game as well as details for SP and MP. I remember when Battlefield 3 was just a rumour.

I liked 2142 a lot! I don't see why there is so much hate for that game. :blink:

Agreed, 2142 is an incredibly underrated game. Titan mode is one of the most awesome things to come out of the battlefield series.

yeah I freaking loved drop podding onto a titan and working into the interior to destroy it and then jumping off.

I loved it when it worked, but for me it very nearly never did. It almost never played out well, because once the shields were down, either one of two things happened. The enemy titan because a non stop flood of mines, RDX and grenades in every corridor on all levels, thus becoming impenetrable, or both teams just sit in their titans seemingly forgetting that the missile silos exist. Either way, the game immediately starts to drag on and on, and people start praying that at least one team is actually terrible at defense and that they'll crumple right away so the match can finally end.

...Alternatives were scenarios where people sat in the AA turrets and did nothing but shoot at the enemy titan's shields all match, or at least a 3rd of the team loiters around the hanger bay waiting for the gunship.

A more user specific issue was the lag. I could never seem to find a titan match that didn't. Beyond that, it was pretty fun, though I wished the titan was larger. A multi-level titan interior would have been so cool, but I guess it would have made all the problems I just listed even worse, lol.

Can't say I've ever seen an impenetrable defense by a team who actually worked together. a hard defense yes, but not impenetrable.

I have, and good skills isn't the core of it either. Good communication is the key.

ANy modern game should use Euphoria for character animations. at least if you're using something else, don't brag about it.

You're being silly, you haven't even seen battlefield 3's animations yet.

2142 was extremely laggy for me. I hated the future stuff. And the vehicles really didn't cut it for me. I did like the Titan game mode though.

But I have seen Euphoria, and they say it's the same system used in EA sports games.
