Fuck! Last night I started writing something about my hopes for Battlefield 3, and one of the points in it was "they better have huge tank battles across massive plains", and that's precisely what they're showing now. I should have finished it up and I'd have looked like the prescient games genius that I am.
It looks seriously good: huge maps, incredible destruction. Vehicular incredibleness. Not sure about those tank interior bits, though. It's all on PC, of course, and it looks miraculous. There's also a brief multiplayer trailer over here, showing some of the stuff from Paris multiplayer maps. Big built up urban maps for multiplayer: also in my unfinished articles. I mean I basically make these games happen by imagining them. (*Imagines infinite Stalker*)
