Battlefield 3 Onslaught Begins

Battlefield 3 is stepping out from under DICE’s secretive cover – onto a Game Informer magazine cover and YouTube. The game is featured in the next issue of Game Informer, and the game’s official teaser trailer is up on YouTube (and embedded below).

The title will utilize DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine, which promises numerous visual enhancements, a new animation system that originated from EA Sports, and environments that are more destructible than ever before. The developer made it clear today that it had canceled other projects in order to focus on making Battlefield 3 “the best Battlefield game ever.” 

Two elements Battlefield fans have been missing from recent BF games, jets and the ability to prone (lay down), will both be making a return in BF3, as will support for up to 64 players on the PC and up to 24-32 on the consoles.

Battlefield 3 marks the first core entry in the series since Battlefield 2 was released on PC in 2005. There hasn’t been any shortage of standalone BF games, however; since then, we’ve seen Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, Battlefield 2142, Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield 1943, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. There’s also been an announcement of another free-to-play game, Battlefield Play4Free.
