So we have another teaser trailer for Battlefield 3 and luckily this one is a lot more substantive. The previous teaser was just a bunch of quick flashes and we really couldn’t get any feel for the true gameplay but that’s not the case with this latest one. DICE has announced that for a limited time, the Battlefield 3 pre-order offer will feature the digital expansion pack Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand at no extra charge. This themed multiplayer expansion pack includes four legendary maps from Battlefield 2 boldly re-imagined with Frostbite 2 physics, destruction and visuals. Completing the package are classic Battlefield 2 weapons and vehicles, unique rewards, new achievements/trophies, and more. Judging from your emails we wanted to make sure everyone is clear that Battlefield 3 is a completely separate franchise than Battlefield: Bad Company, they are made by the same company in DICE but two completely different games.
In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines. As the first boots on the ground, players will experience heart-pounding missions across diverse locations including Paris, Tehran and New York. As a U.S. Marine in the field, periods of tension and anticipation are punctuated by moments of complete chaos. As bullets whiz by, as walls crumble, as explosions force players to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before. If you had any doubt whether or not this game would look good those questions have been answered now. Battlefield 3 will leverage the power of Frostbite 2, DICE’s new cutting-edge game engine. This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and character animation utilizing ANT technology from the latest EA SPORTS games. Battlefield 3 will be available this fall for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
