Now there are trailers for pre-order
add-on packs for games that aren't out yet. Dice released a new Physical
Warfare Pack gameplay trailer that features the items you'll receive at launch
if you pre-order Battlefield 3 through GameStop or EA's digital storefront,
Origin. Keep in mind that depending on where you pre-order, you'll be awarded
different bonuses [link = warfare]. Also keep in mind that there may come a
time when the number of promotions for add-ons and small game features spirals
out of control and destroys us all — but the trailer is pretty cool, enjoy...
Try not to be
deterred by the title of Battlefield 3's Guillotine teaser trailer, as there
are neither beheadings or teasing of beheadings. Instead, EA's new video is
47-seconds of beautifully chaotic in-game footage which – come to think of it –
may in fact cause fans to lose their head. Figuratively. We hope…
EA has dropped fresh Battlefield 3
screenshots depicting scenes from singleplayer mission Operation Guillotine,
the co-op outing Exfiltration, and the frenetic Caspian Border multiplayer map.

EA has announced plans to deploy the

the countdown ticks steadily down to Battlefield 3's October 28 release, the
storm of promotions surrounding it has been quickly ramping up. The latest
weapon in Battlefield 3's advertising arsenal pulls in the help of world famous
rapper, producer, and entrepreneur Jay-Z. It's a gameplay trailer set to be
broadcast on television Monday, September 26. We have a teaser for the trailer
(or “treaser”), which contains snippets of fresh gameplay set to the Jay-Z
track “99 Problems.” Watch it as many times as you'd like…
Remember being yelled at by your mom when you stayed up
all night playing videogames? “What are you doing in there, with all the
shooting!?” she’d shout to a locked door. “Playing Counter-Strike, mom!” we’d scream
back, eyes never straying from the screen. “What for? Playing games will never get you anywhere! Why don’t you read
a book?” she’d yell one more time before being met with a blast of Sum41 from
our computer’s speakers.
Well, it’s time for prove her wrong, once and for all! To
celebrate the October launch of DICE’s Battlefield 3, EA and Virgin Gaming have
announced what they’re calling the “largest console videogame competition in
EA has finally opened up the Battlefield 3 beta, allowing anyone with an
interest in the title (that is, all of you who read past the headline) to
satisfy their curiosity. If you preordered the title on Origin and/or purchased
EA's Medal of Honor: Tier 1 Edition, you've had 48 hours with the title to
yourselves. Here's hoping you took the time to learn what button makes bullets
come out of the gun, because whether you're on PC, PSN or Xbox Live Gold, the
teeming hordes are about to descend upon your position...
One of the things that kept us going back to Need For Speed: Most Wanted was the innovative Autolog, which found a unique way to turn the racing game into a social experience. DICE's upcoming Battlefield 3 will have a similar feature, and if the trailer above is to be believed, it's going to take the concept even further. It's called Battlelog (get it?), and according to Executive Producer Patrick Bach, it's the "deepest persistence in the franchise's history..."
Much of DICE's new Battlefield 3 clip is stuff you could see for yourself by
downloading and joining the game's Open Beta – but if you're especially guarded
with your enthusiasm, there's plenty of suggestions as to what you might consider
being impressed by when you get online. There's a more practical purpose to the
video too, though: those new to the series' Rush Mode and character classes can
consider this a quick Battlefield primer. Will it stop new entrants getting
killed by more experienced players? Maybe not, though at least there's
something to aim towards...
