    Thanks for those. I don’t get GI where I live and I wanted to see the screenshots. They look target renders more than anything else to me.

    Anyway, again, really thankful for those pictures. πŸ˜€

    @Jacob: idk if you realize this, but I haven’t seen a military shooter that has a health bar in years.

    Are these shots from PC? If so, obviously it looks good. If it’s PS3, holy crap! Please confirm?

  21. #21 by Johnny on February 7th, 2011

    Please scan these if you can. If not then at least summarize the info.

  22. #22 by Luke on February 7th, 2011

    i literally have been sitting here refreshing your profile for like 5 minutes waiting for you to post more info.

    I really am happy to see Urban Warfare, you see it in games liek COD, and stuff and killzone, but the building aren’t destructable. Seeing as to how BC2 was I was really happy, and this just really blows my mind. I am upset that it is coming out right after Resistance 3 and close to Uncharted 3 and Batman Arkam City. I really hope i get the job this summer and am able to purchase the games. But that also means that I have to split me time between the games, and I am gunning for the top 10 players in kills for Resistance 3. So this is going to be hard, I was ranked 100 for a while in R2, never made it farther overall. Was ranked 1st in Meltdown for a week, thats it. ):

    We really need full page scan, man!

    hey beastxjason, idk if you realize this but youve got a couple thousand people waiting for you to put up full scans of the bf3 game article. could you do that?

    If GameInformer contacts us to take the images down, we must comply, so posting entire pages, let alone what we have posted here, is a bit of a risk on our end

    Here’s info from the link BFan posted:

    • Aiming for CY Q4 2011 release
    • Concept for BF3 has been in the works for years, waiting on proper tech to seamlessly come together
    • Frosbite 2.0 is the culmination of this tech, entirely re-written
    • Lighting sounds neat, one “probe” contains more lighting information than an entire BFBC2 level.
    • Level destruction is going to be “believable” but basically everything is destructible.
    • Character animations powered by ANT, what EA Sports uses.
    • AI characters and multiplayer characters have different animation sets

    • No more “gliding” animations that look off, animation realism is a focus
    • Captured their own war audios (bullets, tanks, helicopters, etc) at different distances to ensure realism
    • Better audio cues for certain actions, more easily able to listen for threats
    • Plan on better, more immediate post release content
    • More unlocks than BFBC2
    • Dice trying to find a good balance between customization of your character and not having “pink rabbit hat(s)”
    • 4 classes
    • Will talk about squads “later”
    • Looking into a theater mode but can’t talk about it
    • Will have co-op
    • There will be a kill-cam but it can be turned off
    • BF3’s team is almost twice as big as the team for BFBC2
    • They want the pacing of the single player mode to be balanced, with highs and lows. Makes the comparison to a song vs a guitar solo.
    • Part of the single player mode takes place in Sulaymaniyah – Iraqi Kurdistan.
    • “****” will be used often, so M rated for sure
    • There will be an earthquake in a level. The destruction sounds very impressive. 7 story building collapses, looks very well done
    • Significant narrative that goes with the SP mode
    • More than one setting, you’re not in the middle east for the whole game
    • PC version is lead version
    • Why 64 players for PC only? No complains from the console crowd.
    • No mod tools at release. Maybe none down the line either. Frosbite 2.0 is complex and mods tools would have to be dumbed down, so does Dice really want to put their time to that or would it be better spent elsewhere?
    • Original story, not based on Bad Company at all.

    Luke: hey beastxjason, idk if you realize this but youve got a couple thousand people waiting for you to put up full scans of the bf3 game article.could you do that?  

    What is pictured isn’t even a small piece of the huge spread. I recommend you go out to gamestop and pick up a copy of the gameinformer. You can also subscribe via their site You can also stay tuned to the blog and wait for all the details to break. I think Jay gave enough info via Bfan in the comment above to hold you over. Thanks for looking. Were looking forward to BF3 and the info is just now coming out.

    Is it running at 60 fps, or a slow 30 like all them crappy games before this one?

  31. #32 by premiersoupir on February 8th, 2011 [ 17020 Points ]

    “bandwidth exceeded” for these pictures.

  32. #33 by Tosh on February 8th, 2011 [ 1127 Points ]

    Photos are now back.

  33. #34 by yofkla on February 8th, 2011

    looks like any ol’ military shooter we’ve already seen, nothing new here.

  34. #35 by pat on February 8th, 2011

    its on 360

    Riley: Are these shots from PC? If so, obviously it looks good. If it’s PS3, holy crap! Please confirm?

    It’s either directx 11/12 (which no console supports), or a fake leak of a cinematic to generate buzz. It’s funny how the guns clearly have 10000000000 less polygons than the background.

  36. #37 by Jay on February 10th, 2011

    This looks amazing, Will definately be getting it πŸ™‚
