First Battlefield 3 Gameplay Footage


This is the first Battlefield gameplay footage to hit the internet today. From what I, and I am sure anyone else can tell this game is going to seriously kick ass. The graphics look amazing, once again DICE is taking it to a whole new level. I for one can’t wait to get my hands on this! I also recommend you watch this puppy in full 1080p!

    The graphics and the animation are insane. Their realtime radiosity and occlusion kicks ass. I hope we see the tech properly on consoles. I’m not sure how much of this can be squeezed into the consoles.

    not only does the gameplay look nothing short of INCREDIBLE, but this article written by this goofy faced guy is very well done. good work “luke.”

    Great all I needed was this. Portal 2, BF3, Uncharted 3 and Diablo 3 DAMMIT!

    Damnit. Too many games. Okay I get this but I think EA should take valve’s example and offer a free “PC Copy” with the PS3 version just because I can avoid buying two copies.

    Humm Medal of Honor tricked me with its pretty trailers to and then i played the game and it was full of Meh.

    Honestly I wasn’t crazy about MoH just by playing the BETA. I know people will say you can’t judge a came by a BETA but I think you can some what tell what kind of game it will be and MoH just didn’t suck me in.

    Is this truly gameplay footage?

    Holy s**t i’ve never seen something like that!

    Well the Moh beta was weak but i was more interested in the story mode anywho and it looked really good from the trailers I saw. I bought the game and was like wtf, did I buy a different game than what they showed me. I do have interest in this game though but Iam not blown away…yet.

    MoH IMO was an attempt to gimp the COD series which it sort of did. Anyways this game is looking incredible the graphic quality has increased dramatically from previous Battlefields the environment detail looks phenomenal..man just wow..All i have to say is activison better run for cover. Oh and mucho explosin en mis pantalones :D

    man i really hope this game puts COD to rest once and for all…and with a ‘holiday’ release, it will be in the position to do that!!!! c’mon DICE this is your chance to give us the most amazing Shooter we’ve ever seen. it’s time to be THE trend setter in this business

    yeh i fent exactly the same…and dont get me wrong the Single Player was some of the most intense, realistic feeling action I’d seen yet…but as soon as MP reared its ugly head I vomitted onto my TV screen, which shorted out and fried my whole entertainment system…guess i asked for it.
    BF3 is a chance for EA & DICE to avenge their fallen brother, as well as gain back some major respect from the shooter community. I got plenty of faith that its gonna be a blockbuster!

    I think Killzone has killed any interest in War games for me. Looks good but I have no enthusiasm any more for it.

    Can’t wait to play this

    Okay I will be completely honest here. BF3 really does look like the best shooter of this year. Like I mean most likely Uncharted will win shooters and over all games. But when it comes down to the FPSs, this just blows you away. KZ3, blew me away, this little bit of carnage they showed, blew me more away lol. Animations, Graphics, game mechanics that are shown really look good. Sorry to say this, but I was hopeing to go all out on Resistance 3, but it looks to me like BF3 is where its at. Thank God that I kept my MOH. I’ll see from the beta, if I really want it though. This and next years multiplayers are set for me though. R3 and BF3!

    Looks awesome, never played any of the BF series before. Is it worth getting the previous games?

    Meaning you didn’t like Killzone, or thats all you want to play?

    I agree with @xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux BF:BC2 is pretty damn awesome. Battlefield 1942 was pretty cool as well, used to play it on the PC. Didn’t really care for the other ones, although a lot of people liked them.

    So many awsome games for ps3 this yr. Gotta try and restrain myself from buying them all. BF3 definitly looks nothing short of amazing. COD killer idk yet. Despite what ppl say about COD it still is IMO the best MP shooter out. Its arcady feel is what makes it a ton of fun. Dont get me wrong i have all the faith in the world that DICE can make this game way better than any COD but it will be tough. First advice dnt make a COD clone and then try and say we invented something new. If you guys say been there done that, its prolly not a good idea to put it in ur game.
