E3 2011: Battlefield 3 Coming October, Looks Amazing

Moments ago at the EA Press Conference a demo for Battlefield 3 was shown, and it looked absolutely beautiful. The new Frostbite 2 engine shipping with the game is really fantastic looking, with amazing destruction and realistic effects.

The Battlefield Multiplayer BETA is coming September 2011. Little more is known about the BETA but I can’t wait to play it. Battlefield 3 is also going to feature Battlelog, a complete stat tracking online experience. For FREE!

Not only did they announce the BETA but they showed us an amazing live gameplay demo. The gameplay demo featured you driving around in a tank, you wouldn’t believe how amazing the game looks, the depth and the effects of the smoke billowing up in the distance. The radio chatter as shells fly past you. The sound of bullets scraping your ear as the battlefield completely explodes in front of your eyes.

Not only did the gameplay feature the amazing tank view but with a click of a button you are then in control of a drone in the sky. Tracking enemy movements for your tank allies to destroy. Jumping back into the cockpit of the tank you rattle forward towards the enemy tanks. The clink as the side of your tank is hit. The whistle and popping of the tanks around you slowly being destroyed. The thrill that you get from blasting your enemy sky high. Battlefield 3 looks fantastic and you can expect more from Platform Nation in the coming months.

Battlefield 3 has been given a release date of October 25th. And I think it’s safe to say, I cannot wait one more day.
