    Battlefield Tri-hard

    EA's Origin Twitter - "Battlefield 3 will be $30 off tonight at 9PM PST/12 AM EST. NA only." If you've been holding out due to cash or something you're quickly running out of reasons not to buy this (it's okay it's really pretty good)


    9/20 - Beta information and official computer specs
    The Battlefield 3 Open Beta is available on all platforms; console-goers should check their typical online marketplaces, and PC-elites should look to Origin.
    If you've preordered on PC or bought Medal of Hondor new, you'll get to hop in the beta on September 27.
    If you haven't because you refuse to buy off Origin or you didn't want to pay full price for some mediocre shooter just to get into a BF3 beta, you'll get in on September 29.
    The beta will end on October 10. That means the beta will last for 11 or 13 days, depending on whether you're $60 poorer than others.

    If you're a PC gamer, you'll still have time to get in early if you pre-order before September 25, but if you just really want to stick it to the man, your call.

    DICE have also given us the system requirements/recommendations for the beta, which are as follows:
    Minimum System Requirements
    OS: WINDOWS VISTA (SERVICE PACK 2) 32-BIT
    PROCESSOR: 2 GHZ DUAL CORE (CORE 2 DUO 2.4 GHZ OR ALTHON X2 2.7 GHZ)
    MEMORY: 2 GB
    HARD DRIVE: 20 GB
    GRAPHICS CARD (AMD): DIRECTX 10.1 COMPATIBLE WITH 512 MB RAM (ATI RADEON 3000, 4000, 5000 OR 6000 SERIES, WITH ATI RADEON 3870 OR HIGHER PERFORMANCE)
    GRAPHICS CARD (NVIDIA): DIRECTX 10.0 COMPATIBLE WITH 512 MB RAM (NVIDIA GEFORCE 8, 9, 200, 300, 400 OR 500 SERIES WITH NVIDIA GEFORCE 8800 GT OR HIGHER PERFORMANCE)
    SOUND CARD: DIRECTX COMPATIBLE
    KEYBOARD AND MOUSE
    DVD ROM DRIVE

    Recommended System Requirements
    OS: WINDOWS 7 64-BIT
    PROCESSOR: QUAD-CORE CPU
    MEMORY: 4 GB
    HARD DRIVE: 20 GB
    GRAPHICS CARD: DIRECTX 11 COMPATIBLE WITH 1024 MB RAM (NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 560 OR ATI RADEON 6950)
    SOUND CARD: DIRECTX COMPATIBLE
    KEYBOARD AND MOUSE
    DVD ROM DRIVE


    For more information, check the official Beta website.


    9/16 - Guillotine Gameplay Series: Part Xbox
    So apparently instead of more PC gameplay we're getting a demonstration of what the game looks on Xbox 360, the first time we're seeing official footage on the console. Not as jaw-droppingly oh-god-there-goes-another-pair-of-pants pretty as PC, of course, but damn if it doesn't look nice.

    9/9 - Guillotine Gameplay Series: Part 1
    Looks like we'll be getting a similar treatment to the Fault Line series, i.e. three/four short clips of a long sequence every week and then the full video.

    Here's a massive fact sheet listing all the weapons, attachments, and equipment.

    First off, there's an official trailer:

    A guy also put together all the player-recorded footage he could find. Note that a lot of this footage is of games with very few players in them, and also that the players recorded may not have their graphics settings on max.

    6/6 - E3 BLOWOUT
    Battlefield 3 is officially coming to all platforms on October 25, 2011! An open beta taking place in September has been announced as well, so keep your eyes out for more information on that as it comes. Also, feast your eyes on three new vids:

    6/3 - Pre-E3 BF blog info

    From the BF blog

    ...we will be showing both single player and multiplayer gameplay at E3! You can expect new trailers and screenshots as well as in-depth press previews hitting next week. You can also watch the EA press conference live on EA.com on Monday.

    ...Gamers will experience a physical battlefield and be able to temporarily disable vehicles, go prone, mount weapons, lay down suppressive fire and more.
    Of course there are things we will not be showing at E3, including the game’s extensive co-op campaign, the introduction of Team Death Match mode and the Battlefield 3 Battlelog web destination – featuring powerful social tools, feeds and detailed player stats. Battlelog also lets you manage your friends lists, squad up, create platoons, use voice chat and follow your friends’ progress in real-time, and more. Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)... zero dollars.
    Zing!

    Here's some hires stills, thanks Amit:









    2/7 - GI Cover Story
    After wading through the murky, profanity-ridden depths of /v/, I found scans of the Game Informer cover story, and promptly saved and uploaded them. They're on display in the spoiler below, but here are the highlights:
    -Full SP campaign, completely seperate from BC (going for a more srs tone, but not quite as high-octane as CoD)
    -Dev team twice the size of BC2's, most of them being BF2/1942 vets
    -"One probe contains more lighting information than an entire level in BC2." Badass engine
    -Vastly upgraded destruction capabilities (within reasonable limits, i.e. no Red Faction destructo-marathons)
    -Commander role not confirmed, not denied (implied that it's not there though )
    -Spotting system like that in BC2
    -Four classes
    -Killcam confirmed (can be turned off)
    -Theater mode (eg. Halo 3/Reach, Black Ops) a strong possibility
    -PC is lead platform (fuck yeah)
    -Mod tools not confirmed, not denied (still in discussion)

    E: goddamn imageshit scaled down the scans, here's a .rar with the lot







    2/4 - Teaser Trailer
    NEED A DISPENSER HERE

    Coming Fall 2011. YEEEAH

    New information confirmed:
    -Full single-player campaign (co-op included)
    -Jets
    -64 Players on PC
    -Prone


    2/3 - GI Cover Unveiled
    http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...lefield-3.aspx

    In our world-exclusive cover story, Game Informer unveils the first numbered entry in the Battlefield series since 2005. Many longtime fans are wondering, "what took so long?!" DICE has honed the concept for the true sequel for years, but it wasn't until the company developed the powerful new Frostbite 2 engine that it felt all the pieces were in place to create a proper follow-up. Armed with powerful upgrades like deferred rendering, real-time radiosity, a new animation system borrowed from the EA Sports label, and an exponential leap in destructibility, executive producer Patrick Bach dubs Frostbite 2 "the best piece of technology on the market when it comes to building games."
    So yeah looks like BFBC and its engine was just a warm-up for the next huge BF game. Look for more info come mid-February when this GI issues ships (I'll put info here as it comes)

    Only problem I have there is "sets its sights on Call of Duty" in the cover blurb, hopefully that's just EA's marketing spewing shit and not an actual development focus

    Re: Battlefield 3

    If by "sights set on Call of Duty" means more elaborate gun customization and painting, I'm in.

    On the other hand, if by "sights set on Call of Duty" means killstreaks and two shot kills, I'm out.

    Dont forget the knife lunge!

    Yeah, just that line is probably going to make some of the PC people go "Um, wtf?". But for all the XBox kiddies, it might be a draw-in.

    Call of Duty isn't much of a benchmark.

    And that is, unfortunately, the only one that counts.

    Fake E: I better have my full range of six classes in Battlefield 3. And jets.

    This better be like Bad Company 2, and not like Medal of Honor. That game was shit tier compared to BC2.

    That game was NOT made by DICE. Only the multiplayer portion was, and even then I'm sure they had their hands tied.
