Battlefield 3 Trailer Shows Leap in Destruction, Q4 2011 Release

Yesterday afternoon, Kotaku reported that Battlefield creators DICE would be releasing the game's first trailer. That trailer, apparently, is already online, supposedly leaking tonight.

Images of the game were revealed in the latest Game Informer. The game has the same visual vibe of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, but with decimated environments. As mentioned previously, GI mentions a few new technical features, including animation techniques borrowed from the EA Sports guys and an "exponential leap in destructibility."

The trailer shows low-qualify video footage of game combat, with radio chatter. The screen goes black after a helicopter is blown to bits, and the game's title, Battlefield 3, flashes on screen. The release date given is (northern hemisphere) fall 2011.

Kotaku is following up with EA to confirm whether this is in fact the new Battlefield 3 trailer.

Thanks mundox!


    Whoever made that trailer watched the Terminator Salvation trailer a bit too much.

      agreed, dark shaky camera work? really dice?
      i expected more. I'm disappointed.

    what the? that doesn't show any gameplay, I want to see the footage that "After Battlefield 3 was just shown to the boss's boss last week, the game was revealed to EA's staff entirely. L_Twin also stated that people probably won't be able to work the rest of the day (today) because their minds have just been blown." what a let down

      Gee, that would really be a disappointment if it was titled "Battlefield 3 Gameplay Trailer".

    Holy fuck, after all these years of game trailers people fail to realise it's a teaser. It's not meant to show gameplay. This is an official announcement realised in video. Like many other trailers. Bad Company 2 had a pointless teaser too. The music is a remix of the original Battlefield theme. There is no one at Dice that had Terminator in their head when making it. Everything is a Remix. My god. I would hate to see you people when actual gameplay IS released. "Oh it's all pre-rendered, something like that wouldn't happen in a match. That camera angle is too cinematic." You were promised an announcement, you got it.

      Agree! +5

    Wait... Northern Hemisphere.

      nvm I realised he ment Fall for the northern hemisphere not that only the Northen Hemipshere was getting it at that time.

    the boxart looks like it takes place in the Tron universe :P
