If Battlefield 3 has 99 problems, a stunning trailer ain’t one

With the showdown between Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 looming, EA and DICE are pulling out all the PR stops in the hopes of showing that their rivals couldn’t bust a grape in a fruit fight. In order to accomplish that and bounce on the double, put the pedal on the floor, EA has released a new trailer featuring a remix of Jay-Z’s song “99 Problems.”

Oh, and they loaded the trailer up with some fairly stunning in-game gameplay footage. So there’s that.

The trailer itself may be a bit graphic for younger audiences, and the lyrics won’t win over any Church groups, so be warned. Expect many, many more trailers over the next few weeks, as Battlefield 3 ramps up for its PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 release on October 25.
