Video Awesomeness: Battlefield Edition

 

To kick off the open Beta for the high­ly antic­i­pat­ed release (BY ME!) of Bat­tle­field 3, I thought it would be cool to vis­it the Lin­eage that the Bat­tle­field series has brought to the gam­ing com­mu­ni­ty from PC to con­sole this is a strate­gic think­ing man’s shoot­er! So instead of me ram­bling on about the past here’s Adam Sessler (one of the only good things G4 TV has to offer). He basi­cal­ly sums up the series through Bat­tle­field 1943 in three min­utes:

When Bat­tle­field: Bad Com­pa­ny came along I total­ly got into the series (sor­ry PC guys Dice mussed up not putting this one out for you!) The sto­ry was a mod­ern day ver­sion of Kelly’s Heroes, one of my favorite World War II movies from back in the day, which added com­e­dy and an enter­tain­ing cam­paign to this almost exclu­sive Mul­ti­play­er only series adding to its allure.
When Bat­tle­field: Bad Com­pa­ny 2 released you could tell Dice was lis­ten­ing (as always) and released BC2 on ALL plat­forms with bet­ter con­trols lead­ing to an even more amaz­ing mul­ti­play­er expe­ri­ence!
Oh did I forget….FROSTBITE and DISTRUCTION 2.0 this is the engine that brought us destruc­tible envi­ron­ments!

I know there is so much in the Bat­tle­field series that I didn’t point out, but we’re here for some Bat­tle­field 3! Now I had ear­ly access to the beta on the Xbox (if you bought MOH Lim­it­ed Ed. you should have been there too) and for all its short com­ings (I’m in total belief that EA gave us the Alpha just to shut us up!) this is going to be a great addi­tion to the fran­chise. That being said looks like Dice has made up a cam­paign that might be as good as the mul­ti­play­er end…..
Here’s some of the sto­ry that you will expe­ri­ence:

Yes there are vehi­cles!.…

I can’t believe this is off the Xbox!…

Now that we’ve seen the cam­paign, how about some mul­ti­play­er being that we all will be los­ing sleep at the end of Octo­ber! There will be 24 play­ers on the con­soles and 64 for the PC! Ground as well as Air yes there will be jets!!!!!! The com­bat looks intense as ever so b e ready to drop so time into Bat­tle­field 3!


 
Pix­el Ene­my had some exclu­sive extend­ed footage from the demo above, here it is!
 

You know if ya got 99 problems……play BF3! See you all on the Bat­tle­field I’ll be the one arm­ing the M‑COM!
