Battlefield 3 Official Thread

So I thought I'd start a thread for this game in particular.

It's supposed to come out Q4 2011 sporting a brand new engine: Frostbite 2.0.

Latest we've heard is that, supposedly tomorrow we should see something BF3 related getting shown/released.

PlanetBattlefield says it's the launch of the battlefield3.com web site:

Also, the cover for the march issue of the gameinformer magazine features BF3:

Nope. New build.

It goes like this:

Battlefield: Bad Company used Frostbite 1.0
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 uses Frostbite 1.5
Battlefield 3 will use Frostbite 2.0.

A Battlefield game with no multiplayer won't be a true Battlefield game




I can't wait for it myself, but slightly annoyed DICE have said they won't released Onslaught for BC2 and Battlefield 1943 for PC :/

cool, frostbite 2
i just got this information from other forums:
Battlefield 3 leaps ahead of the competition with the power of Frostbite™ 2, the next instalment of DICE’s cutting-edge game engine. This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering superior visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and incredibly lifelike character animations. As bullets whiz by, walls crumble, and explosions throw you to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before. In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding single player missions and competitive multiplayer actions ranging across diverse locations from around the globe including Paris, Tehran and New York

Battlefield 3 features:

* Frostbite 2 – Battlefield 3 introduces Frostbite 2, the incredible technology that takes animation, destruction, lighting, scale and audio to new heights. Built upon this powerful game engine, Battlefield 3 immerses players physically and emotionally to the world around them like never before.
* Feel the Battle — Feel the impact of bullets and explosions, drag your fallen comrades into safety, and mount your weapon on almost any part of the terrain. Battlefield 3’s cutting edge animation, spectacular visuals and real as hell battle gameplay attack your senses and make you feel the visceral warriors experience like no other FPS.
* Unparalleled Vehicle Warfare — The best online vehicle warfare experience gets even better with a fitting sonic boom as fighter jets headline impressive lineup of land, air and sea vehicles.
* Urban Combat — Take the fight to iconic and unexpected places in the USA, Middle East, and Europe including claustrophobic streets, metropolitan downtowns, and open, vehicle-friendly landscapes as you fight your way through the war of tomorrow.

BF3 really looks cool, i think i need to get this on my PC. can't wait for a screenshot.
i think this game will compete with homefront.

I am so painfully looking forward to this game. I've been a huge fan of Frostbite since the beginning, even when I felt like us PC Gamers got left out.. I was even a fan when they dropped Frostbite, as an engine basically built for multi-plat, but not at all for the PC, at least as I understood at the time.

Over time I've realized DICE has been taking baby steps, these battlefield games have been testing the waters, feeling out the industry, and building on what works. Well the Bad Company games really surprised a number of people, especially with BC2 on the PC side last year, nobody could have imagined the code could be so uncommonly good on x86. The truth lies in the code, DICE have been building this as a 'true' multiplat from the start, and sacrificed nothing, but maybe some time, on the PC end. The DX10 and DX11 code is very mature and myself, was really blown away at how well it worked on console, and then on PC, taking full advantage of multi-core, DX10/11, and Windows 7.

Battlefield 3 should be amazing, BF2 in a modern engine, multiplat with no sacrifice on PC, even if we lose Onslaught and 1943; though, I will recall this when the game drops, and if it's anything but spectacular on PC I won't forget what they've said.

at least now, they confirmed that PC have capable to run a server with 64 players. maybe it's the advantage of the pc version.
