They've done a jab at TF2 if anyone cares.

Dice trying to find a good balance between customization of your character and not having “pink rabbit hat(s)”

Demo in October highly likely ;

It’s also likely that there will be a beta in October, as limited editions of last year’s Medal of Honour offered access to a Battlefield 3 beta within 12 months of release. It came out on October 12 2010


Specific info on the game;
-PC is the lead platform for the games design.
-The Frostbite 2 engine is designed for DirectX11 and won’t run at all on Windows XP.
-There will be a full single player campaign which will be completely original.
-Co-op mode has been confirmed.
-Fighter jets will be back in Battlefield 3
-The PC 64-man multiplayer will be shrunk to 24 players on consoles.
-Major Locations in the game are Tehran, New York, Paris, Sulaymaniyah and Iraqi Kurdistan
-Battlefield 3 will have a spotting system similar to that of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 in which players could tap a button and highlight an enemy to the rest of the team.
-The ability to go prone will be in Battlefield 3, but doing it in midair will be impossible, eliminating ‘dolphin diving’.
-Bullet physics will work in a similar way to Bad Company 2, with gravity and distance affecting projectile trajectories, but the system will be updated.
-Close combat kills and dog tags will also make the transition from Bad Company 2.
-There won’t be ziplines or grappling hooks
-Battlefield 3 will feature a kill cam, similar to Call of Duty’s, and players will be able to turn it off.
-There won’t be any support for modding on release. DICE say that the Frostbite 2 engine is complex and the tools would have to be dumbed down.
-Multiplayer will contain four classes, and there will be more unlocks than there were in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.


A leaked advert has unveiled plans for a limited edition of Battlefield 3 that will include a “Back to Karkand” map pack as part of the deal. Players who buy the standard edition of Battlefield 3 will have the opportunity to buy the map pack as DLC after the game’s release.
“The themed expansion pack features four legendary maps from Battlefield 2 boldly re-imagined with Frostbite 2 physics, destruction and visuals, completing the package are classic Battlefield 2 weapons and vehicles, unique rewards, new achievements/trophies, and more.”


all info taken from http://www.pcgamer.com/?s=Battlefield+3

Expect a lot more info and a decent trailer from GDC 2011 (Feb 28 - March 4), Official unveiling for Battlefield planned on March 1st.

A UKCS server would be great. Hopefully this installment won't just end up being a five minute wonder!

This sounds awesome, loved BC2.

Though I hope the single player is good - Modern Warefare 1 is one of the very few sole FPS single players I really enjoyed
