2nd half of 2011.

Ok, so apparently it's been in development for 3 years. I wonder if they'll bring back the goofy side of BF 2, and how much Bad Company will be infused into BF 3.

Great teaser. Like it. Terminator style. :-)

So many things I want to see improved, better animation, better shooting mechanics, more tactile feel to everything, better feedback, better net code, more vehicles, large maps, anti air weapons - both stationary and mobile, aircraft less powerful against ground targets.

Have you tried BFBC2? Choppers got owned by AA most of the time.

Another modern shooter? I will stick with Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 thank you very much.

I hope I am wrong, but from that image it doesnt seem that its futiristic, too bad they didnt continue with it.

Too early?! BF3 has been in development in some form for probably longer than three years.

I've been waiting for this game for five years. This is definitely not too early.

Also--goofy side of BF3? What do you mean?

Seriously? Your loss.

why does battlefield artwork always have a weird section of orange on their characters? bad company 2 was the same. it looks like the person has spontaniously combusted and hast quite realised it yet. very strange.

not interested in this myself tho. dice consistantly prove that they're incapable to making a really decent single player and without that i can't get excited. i guess if you live and breath multiplayer you'd be looking forward to it. but i aim that guy. there are quite a few more FPS's i'm interested in this year anyway....

No, I just can't stand modern shooters, they all look the same and pretty much act the same.
With sci fi you get unique environment, art designs, weapons...etc. its something new and fresh, some play differently (Crysis, Bulletstorm, Vanquish...etc).

But its all good.

Yeah, it's not surprising that this game has a campaign but I can't honestly imagine that it's what anyone is excited about. If this franchise were still a PC exclusive, it wouldn't have a campaign at all.

Yeah, aesthetics totally dictate gameplay. The idea that all modern shooters "act" alike is really shallow. That's especially true when you have games like Crysis coming out doing just as much to emulate Call of Duty as everyone else. There's a very good chance that Battlefield 3 will crush the competition when it comes to quality in a team multiplayer experience, and if it lives up to its heritage and combines it with what DICE has learned from games like Bad Company, it could very well be the defining multiplayer experience this generation.

been in development for over 3years? and all they offered for a teaser was something that looked like it came from a dodgy pirate VHS tape from the 90's....not great

Yeah, the video wasn't great, but it's just a teaser. There's a lot more coming very soon. It's also being featured in Game Informer this month and they've already said they're showing it at GDC in less than a month. Development on this game probably started before the engine even, so it's pretty natural to assume that certain gameplay elements were far, far ahead of what they'd show to us. That said, it's also pretty obvious that they have a lot more to show us and soon, and they seem fairly confident that they'll be ready for a Fall 2011 release.

The fact that this video is a bit of a joke doesn't concern me at all. I'll save that for when I actually see the game in a few weeks.

Still, I just get bored of modern settings, modern weapons...etc. I like unique and fresh looks, and some sci-fi games do change the gameplay, either be weapons to be fun to use or characters doing something other than "run and gun" or both.
Gameplay being great, sure, but how can I play a game when I have to look at it and I cant stand the look of it, thats just me.

BF3 may crush the competition and be loved by BF2 veterans but not everyone likes modern military games, ever thought of that, especially these days with so many modern shooters such as MoH, CoD, BF, Homefront, Operation Flashpoint...etc. be it good or bad.
If someone for example posted a Operation Flashpoint image with Battlefield 3 title on it I would seriously think that was BF3, no identity to tell them apart because its all modern.

Though I do understand some like the modern military shooters because thats what they are into, but I for one hoped BF3 could continue with that 2142.
However from that small image, it seems its modern.

But like I said, thats just my opinion.

PS. My sister seems to like them though, she likes Medal of Honor but hated BFC2 because of how big it was and she doesnt like to control vehicles.
Who knows, maybe she will buy this one :P

That trailer would have been ridiculously cool as an actual announcement trailer - i.e. if no one had any idea that the game was in the works. But we do so, err, it was kinda pointless.

Looking forward to this though. Hopefully it'll bring us back to what FPS multiplayers should be about.

Seems that the trailer is going to be released tomorrow.

I'm sooooo excited about BF3. I haven't been this excited about a new game since Halo 2.

Grift is right. This could very well be the defining mp experience. Something that truly advances the genre.

damn ... they need put the damn ps3 servers for bfbc2 back up already ... seing this only makes me want a bfbc fix even more :(
Commented on 2011-02-04 15:25:05
btw: What are the chances on getting into the beta via MoH? Is it a code? Are they still packing it into every single box? I need the beta!

yaawn another MODERN SHOOTER. thats really not what i need. i have enough of it. KZ3 is all i need. but i will be a great game for BF FANS i guess.
Commented on 2011-02-04 16:19:12
Battlefield 3 = True sequel to Battlefield 2. I firmly believe the Bad Company games were just a catalyst for BF3...they perfected the engine, the network code, the destruction balance etc. This game is going to be EPIC on PC!

Battlefield 2 had a lot of balance issues though, overpowered jets & helis standing out the most! And I really hope they don't use punkbuter as the main anti cheat device!

No FPS can compare to the TRUE Battlefield games

Killzone = Infantry based, 24 players max, no vehicles, small maps, no real coordination

Mainline Battlefield series = Vehicle (Jets, boats, land vehicles) & Infantry based, 64 players max, giant maps, maximum coordination, destruction

Two very different types of games..

Have you tried BFBC2? Choppers got owned by AA most of the time.
Not if the pilot knows what he's doing. I'd rather have AA guns more frequently because an Apache with a good pilot/gunner is nearly impossible to shoot down without a gun emplacement. You can still take out the AA gunner with a sniper. Those gunships are way overpowered in the right hands. There has to be a counter, and you will just about never shoot down a gunship with a rocket. I think they nailed the black hawks though.
Bring on BF3!!!...
Commented on 2011-02-04 19:03:50
Yeah there is a chopper in BFBC2 that owns in a good amount of maps. Circle strafing pilots are such a pain in the ass.
The UAV can easily take out anti air as well before a chopper can even reach the base.
The game sorely misses the anti air from 1943 which could only be taken out by ground troops and tanks. They had limited range but they made it so air vehicles feared certain areas. In that game however you had to do passes and couldn't circle strafe. They still need to balance the circle strafe in my opinion.
PC is probably different since there are more veteran players however. I don't know that for sure though.
