Battlefield 3: October 25th

There’s going to be more Battlefield-related showing off from EA later, I think, but they’ve already put out a fairly impressive trailer, which you can see below. It’s out October 25th, and there will be a beta in September.

  4. lhzr says:

    aaand it’s down.

    it was in 360p anyway, don’t feel too bad.

  5. Hybrid says:

    “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by EA.”

  8. Teddy Leach says:

    Oh my god, it’s beautiful.

  9. Bungle says:

    Someone tell the folks at EA they’re stupid. They made this video to promote their game, then they pull down all copies of the video so no one can watch it until they say so. I guess sometimes you gotta be the boss even when it makes no sense.

    • Brutal Deluxe says:

      How else will they be able to sell the video as day-one DLC?

  10. Confusatron says:

    They seem to be using BF3’s overall superior quality as the main pitch. The problem with that I think is that those who play (and like) CoD don’t care about quality. I’d be happy to see them beating CoD but I doubt they will.

    • Raziel_aXd says:

      Although I don’t believe that CoD people don’t care about quality, I tried some Blops this weekend – free on Steam – and I just think it pretty much sucks. I’m back to Crysis 2 for now, although BF3 sure looks good.

      I dont think anyone will argue with you there ;)

    • Baris345 says:

      Someone disagreed with him literally straight away, before you posted that.

    • Confusatron says:

      He did say it sucked, though :D

      But FINE.

  11. Iokanaan says:

    is it this video (uploaded the 14th of april)? shows 12 minutes of gameplay.

  12. Raziel_aXd says:


  13. Rei Onryou says:

    That soldier skidding to a halt animation is awesome! It’s all awesome!! AWESOME!!!

  14. Tei says:

    holy shit. this really +1 everything else.

  15. airtekh says:

    gone :(

  16. Giaddon says:

    The best thing about the BF3 trailers is the sound distortion over the title at the end.

  17. frewster says:

    EA’s site has the best quality video for this trailer: link to

  18. InsidiousBoot says:

    BF3 sure looks awesome.

  19. Linfosoma says:

    Is it sad that the thing that impressed me the most is the smoke? It’s so pretty!

  20. Phried says:

    This video just makes me sadder that I won’t be able to run it.

  21. syntax says:

    vid is down, this works:

  22. Tancosin says:

    That guy had feet!

  23. Hmm-Hmm. says:

    Hmm. That’s on my birthday. Maybe it’ll be a decent enough shooter/wargame, then?

    -edit- Whoa, Nelly! That looks rather impressive graphics-wise. One more game I can’t play unless I get a serious upgrade.
