Here's some extended single player footage, if you're into that.


HolyFuck the graphics looks amazing,it is definatly a PC version. Can you imagine how much better it might look after a few polishing when the game finally comes out? i really want to know what system specs was that computer running on. only game that looks this good and not cartoony is killzone 2 and 3 and crysis in my opinion. I also notice how realistic the water puddles on the floor and palms trees on the beginning of the video. Most of all, the lighting is amazing the part where the us marine moves up the stairs.

If you ask me, its about time there is a game company that is trying to push the potential on computer gaming and not just focus on consoles besides atari the making of The Witcher. Then again having consoles slow down the advancement of computer games could result of computer rigs having a longer life span without upgrades.


Ever noticed what all of these games with awesome graphics have in common? besides crysis (i dont know where its made) the rest seems like they are developed from europe?

Man this new trailer is absolutely incredible. I enjoyed the Bad Company campaigns for what they are, but I'm glad that they seem to be taking a much more serious approach for this one. When I built my PC a few years ago, I had been wondering what game would make me upgrade some parts. I think I know what game that is.

I've seen a few sites posting system requirements for BF3, which is pretty misleading since DICE hasn't released official specs yet. Some of the ones going around seem to be BFBC2's requirements but pumped up a bit since BF3 will be running the Frostbite 2 engine, as opposed to BC2's 1.5. However, Neoseeker has a pretty thorough and informed article on what sort of hardware to be looking at based on what's known about the game. (The scenes in the "Fault Line" trailer were produced on a GeForce GTX 580, for instance.)

Here are their hypothetical specs:

Estimated minimum:

* Windows Vista 32-bit
* 512mb video card (DirectX 10)
* 2GB RAM
* Dual-core processor 2.0ghz

Estimated recommended:

* Windows 7 64-bit
* GTX 580, 5970 (DirectX 11)
* 4-8GB DDR3 RAM
* Quad or hexacore processor

Again, DICE hasn't released official requirements yet and it will probably be a while before they do.

Released announced for October 25! Start saving your computer dollars.

There's some new multiplayer footage at origin.com showing an infantry-based map in France. They also showed off some extended tank gameplay at EA's presser. While the graphics look absolutely incredible, the HUD is still really glowy and there's a lot of dust and smoke. It's awesome from a visuals/immersion standpoint but I thought that it negatively affected the gameplay in BFBC2. I was hoping they would maybe tone it down a bit.

Still excited though uugghhnnnnn

trailer looks bitchin, but then again you don't get a clear picture of it.

Love how the guy on the boxart has Magpul MBUS and an eotech. Surprised it's not a better stock. Standard Telescoping stocks are a PITA


those arent magpul buis, atleast the rear isnt.

Classes revealed! I could not be happier about this.

Assault/Medic

The Assault and Medic a classes have been combined now, where the Assault class can either chose to heal/revive teammates, or you can opt for a grenade launcher instead of the revive kit, if you want more firepower.
Support

The Support class is now the one handing out ammunition, and can also provide covering fire. You can mount your LMG and if fire in the direction of the enemy, you’ll get special bonus points for providing covering fire for your teammates. You can also select an assault rifle with a flashlight for the dark parts of maps (like tunnels), instead of the LMG.
Engineer

The Engineer retains much of his role and load-out from Bad Company 2, you’re equipped with rocket launchers against enemy armor, and a repair tool to fix friendly vehicles, and a sub machine gun.
Sniper

The Sniper has the same role as in previous Battlefield games, and is armed with a sniper rifle, C4 explosives, and spotting gear.


They're basically the 2142 classes, which worked great. So glad that assault and medic are recombined. I really didn't care for the medic LMGs in BC2.

Actually, the one thing that would make me happier is if they gave Sniper a carbine option so you could get some spec ops action.

Lol, so mortar strikes were removed I take it? Now everyone will just be assault so they can get points from revives and handing out healing packs. Guess I'll stick to tank commanding and going 40+ and 0.

I hope my computer can run this game, or else I'd have to buy the console version. Suppose I could always try to find a new CPU if need be.

I've never been big on FPS at all... But Battlefield 3 made me reconsider that. I've been wanting to upgrade my PC, and thankfully now I have something to work towards. I cannot wait... At all.

Exclusive weapons that can only accessed if you pre-ordered from that retailer. This is for the UK..apparently exclusive packs for other regions are in the works. DLC/day 1 unlocks are one thing, but exclusive weapons based on where you buy is another.

The bullshit begins.

Lol, rule #1 of PvP DLC is never let it impact gameplay. This is just beyond full retard.

They tried this last time and a lot of gamers boycotted. It worked in the end. Hopefully it'll happen again. There was a big post on Reddit on it also.

The boycott effort seems to already have died out. As far as I can tell anyway.

In other news, Crysis 2 was removed from Steam and is only available for download online at EA's new Origin online store. Guess where other titles such as Mass Effect 3 and BF3 will only be available online? Yup.

Eh, not really that big of a deal. As much as I love to have all my games on Steam, EA's online service isn't terrible.

It probably isn't terrible. But I doubt they will ever have deals on games like Steam does. inb4 Mass Effect 1 on sale for $19.99 lolz.

It's still available on other services like Direct2Drive and Amazon (for now), but yeah, that doesn't bode well for future releases. So much for waiting for a Steam preorder.

Apparently EA isn't satisfied with just beating Call of Duty; they're trying to reclaim their Douchiest Publisher title from Activision.

I only buy retail anyways, so I couldn't care less about Steam.

Going back to the DLC, they claim they're minor and was chosen because it has no impact on gameplay. Bullshit. Any time you give one side something over the other, it always impacts gameplay no matter how minor. Blizzard tried it with paladins and shamans, but finally caved. Warhammer tried mirroring classes with some differences and it was an imbalanced piece of shit. The list goes on and it beggars the question why even create imbalance over something as rudimentary as a pre-order.

Well that sucks I was hoping to buy Crysis 2 at a bargain price this christmas. Also EA is pretty bad at offering deals on there games.

No they aren't. They usually have good deals on stuff in their online store. That's where I got the BC2 Vietnam expansion for $4.99. They've also had excellent deals on games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age.

Do they constantly have awesome deals going like Steam? No. However, saying they are "bad at offering deals" is way off base.

According to EA, Valve is to blame for Crysis 2's removal. Interesting...

But then again, game developers and publishers are about as trustworthy as politicians when it comes to truth in information. So who knows? lol

There's some good info in Planet Battlefield's E3 report. In particular:

1. Regenerating vehicle armor, are you kidding? I really hope DICE knows what they're doing with this. And this is coming from a tank player.

2. The commo rose isn't in the game at the moment but they're still considering it. With squad leaders coming back, they really should have some system for giving out orders and waypoints.

3. The game still has quick knife, yet you can also equip the knife like before. I wonder if equipping it would mean a shorter cooldown or a less elaborate animation, because why would you ever do that otherwise?

LOL, as an engineer/tank commander I can tell you that just me alone was OP. Add in regenerating armor and you can kiss balance goodbye. You know what they really need is an eject button to boot players not in your squad from the vehicle. I guess you could grief players that way, but it seriously complicates things when your squad mates are trying to spawn on you and some asshat is in the tank. That or they just need to fix spawning, but that might require some actual effort. . .

As for quick knife, I hope they don't tie death to the animation again. I remember for an entire month it was completely broken and I'd get screwed out of legit kills because I was behind someone waving my knife like a retard and nothing happening.

Two things that worry me about this game.
A) Vehicle Regenerating Health (Unless it's like the health where vehicles have to be not near an objective with no one using it).
B) Regenerating Health Overall (Because you have to be clear from fire and objectives, which would be a huge ass advantage to snipers).

Other than that, excited for this game the more I see.
