Battlefield 3 in Stores
Filed under: BATTLEFIELD 3, DICE, EA

DICE and Electronic Arts today announced that Battlefield 3 is available at retail stores in North America, starting today (on October 27 in Europe). The game is on offer for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC systems and is rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB.

Word is: "Battlefield 3 goes above and beyond the competition with the state-of-the-art Frostbite 2 game engine that creates a massive sense of scale, completely destructible environments and enables players to pilot a range of vehicles from jets and tanks to choppers and jeeps. With the addition of Battlelog, the Battlefield social network service, fans old and new can stay connected as they rise to the challenge to become one of the world's best soldiers. To accompany the game, Orion Publishing will release a novel called Battlefield 3: The Russian written by the highly decorated ex-SAS operator and best-selling author of Bravo Two Zero, Andy McNab, with co-author Peter Grimsdale. McNab worked with the creative team at DICE to ensure the authenticity of today's warfare is experienced in the single player, co-op and multiplayer campaigns."

We've been waiting for this one for a long time, as I'm sure a lot of you have. Keep an eye out for our review within the next couple of days.

I hope this game looks good on medium settings too. Medium is probably what most PC gamers will be playing it at.

Probably yes... as always. Not everyone can afford a high-end rig.
Terminator Oct 25 2011, 06:30 pm EDT
Even most high-end rigs won't cut it with this game. To run it on Ultra settings, you need a GTX 580 or HD 6990.

Oh man I have this game maxed out and it looks AMAZING !!!

Somewhere, Robert Kotick is gnashing his teeth. I suspect there's going to be a mass exodus from Call of Duty's player-base in the direction of BF3.

Read a hands-on preview of Modern Warfare 3 in the most recent issue of GameInformer.

A lot of outright negative impressions in the article... one of the most clearly negative preview articles I've ever seen in a gaming mag, actually. Sledgehammer Games is inexplicably rolling back all of the well-received improvements to the MP Treyarch introduced in Black Ops. The article plainly stated that it feels like a "glorified map-pack for Modern Warfare 2", and the series now firmly comes across as "treading water".

This is what happens when you run video-game development into the ground with 100% business priority and 0% artistic respect, Robert.
