Using only gameplay footage entirely taken from the gameplay of the upcoming Battlefield 3, EA and DICE have been trying to get your attention for nearly two months now. They want you to check out the stellar graphics using the new Frostbite 2 Engine. They expect that you will make suitably impressed sounds when the damage physics are displayed. They hope you will be further impressed to see that everything you are watching is still pre-alpha. If after watching the entire Fault Line series you aren’t at least a little impressed, then please let us know what games you are playing, because they must look spectacular.
The video below will be familiar to those that have followed the news coming from the game. It combines the three previous videos, the last of which was released on March 30. All three episodes debuted under the Fault Line moniker, and all three show off the early levels in the game.
Battlefield 3 is set in the very near future, and takes you through Paris, Tehran, New York and the fan favorite—Sulaymaniyah (it is in Iraqi Kurdistan). In the video below, you can see that insurgents have mounted a sizeable attack, which is then trumped by the Earth deciding that it has had enough of us puny meatbags, and fights back with an earthquake.
Battlefield 3 is expected to enter beta soon. Those that bought the Limited Edition and Tier 1 Medal of Honor games will have first access, although no release date for the beta has been given. The game itself though, will be released on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on November 2.
