Some new screenshots have emerged out of BF3. Some of the screens are from the in game footage we have already seen, some of them are just renders and some of them are of concept art. It’s a pretty cool way of just looking at everything from start to finish. The lighting in this game is phenomenal, as well as the graphics and the animation. Please try not to get stuck on the whole thing about how the PC version will be better than the Console version, just try to enjoy what’s coming our way.
One thing that I have an issue with is how the dirt kicks up. If you look at the screenshot you will notice it by the middle soldiers boot. This all makes sense if the solider was running through a muddy surface but doesn’t really fit here. I know the alley is dirty but not dirty enough to kick up that kind of dirty. One other area I saw this in was the roof tops where they go to take out the sniper. After all that running, and shooting they go up to the roof top and dirty is still kicking up all over the place. The roof just isn’t that dirty for that kind of detail.
Here is episode 3 in the ongoing Battlefield 3: Fault Line Series saga. This shows you crawling through a vent, hand to hand combat, defusing a bomb, and then joining up with your fellow soldiers to kick some insurgent arse!

Earlier today I was hanging out at PAX East and decided to have a look at Battlefield 3. Every time I looked at the Battlefield booth the line was long, this was very discouraging but since it was the last day I had to get in there. I would have failed as a gamer to have been at PAX East 2011 which had the hottest new shooter in the works known to man and I wasn’t going to see it. I walked up to the counter and started speaking with the nice EA man. He was pleasant, but me waving the media badge had no affect on him. It was like a bad Star Wars episode, you know when Obi Wan Kenobi plays his Jedi Mind trick on the Stormtroopers in Episode IV to let him, Luke and the two Driods pass. Well it was like that except this guy wasn’t weak minded, he stood firm. I looked around and decided I had no choice, media or not I wasn’t getting in there any other way, ironically the line ended right where I was standing so I didn’t really have to go far.
