First glimpse of Battlefield 3 gameplay
In this new trailer, we get to see a tiny smidgen of gameplay that’s just enough to get me pumped for this game. Along with the exclusive blowout in Game Informer, this trailer has pushed me over into the “must-have-now” zone. I’ve been playing Bad Company 2 and the Vietnam expansion pretty much exclusively to fill my online shooter needs. I’ve always preferred the team-based gameplay of the Battlefield series to the spastic, spam-fests known as Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops.
This game is going to be something incredible. People have waited 6 years for a proper sequel to Battlefield 2, and this is going to be that and more. I mean… just look at what’s going on in the trailer. The Frostbite 2.0 engine is looking like one fine piece of game building equipment, and if all goes well, I’d like to see it used in some games other than the Battlefield series.
Anyway, this game is going to be up there with Skyrim and DiRT 3 as my game of the year. I’m sure I’m forgetting some other great titles that are going to be released during the holidays this year, but Battlefield 3 has definitely pushed its way to the top of the list.
Watch the trailer.
