Battlefield 3: First trailer - it's helicopters vs. jet fighters

First the good news... Woo hoo, the first trailer of DICE's brand new Battlefield title has finally emerged from cover confirming that one of the best multiplayer experiences is indeed getting a full sequel in 2011. The bad news? There's barely anything else of interest in this sneak-peek trailer.

What did you think? I mean, apart from the fact that for a game this big the trailer barely gives anything away in the measly 42 seconds or so that it runs for?

Take a trip to our sister site, CVG, as they've managed to find some more details on Battlefield 3. Amongst other things there's the reveal of a few locations where you'll be taking the fight, including Paris, Tehran and bloody hell, not again, New York. Plus the announcement of the Frostbite 2 engine which promises even more immersion than ever.

We're properly excited about Battlefield 3, especially for the multiplayer side of things seeing as Call of Duty is becoming rather stale and predictable. The choppers, planes and masses of ground vehicles set it apart from the regular FPS affairs.

So what do you want to see from this sequel? Let us know in the comments field below. We'll have more news on Battlefield 3 soon.

    Im glad they're finally chucking the Jets into console multiplayer.. I played Battlefield 2 on the PC when it was released and fell in love.. the game felt amazing and the size of the maps were enough to make me run to the toilet quicker than if i woke up next to Garry Glitter(!). But the Battlefield series hasn't quite hit home on the console like they did with BF2 for the PC.. Hopefully this will be what i have been waiting for.

    Even though I know nothing about it through this trailer, BF 1942 is my favorite multiplayer game of all time, so I'm stoked

    @THORSTEINTHESTAFFSTRUCK Mother of God there is another one out there. Game wasn't that bad but it was defo the BF3 beta that suckered me in.

    After playing bbc2, I can surely say I'm interested in this.

    *annoying fanboy voice* No, call of duty ISN'T becoming stale according to this site, since it's the 7th game in the series and got a higher score than the fifth game in the bungie-made halo series! *end annoying fanboy voice* But yes, I am a bit bored of CoD. Actually, if I manage to fix my comp up and get crysis 2, I'm going to take a break from buying any FPS's for a bit.

    I never cared for Battlefield but after i got BC2, it has become one of my favorite games. Still love CoD though.

    I wasn't that fussed about bf3, but i am really looking forward to it now. Probably the game i want the most, apart from diablo 3. Fingers crossed you can put bots in multiplayer maps (i need practice before going into war with real people lol). single player too :). desctructible environments? and great sound and graphics.
  • Slowcharge - February 4, 2011 8:48 p.m.

    Finally. I've been waiting for BF3.
  • Shagnasty - February 4, 2011 8:48 p.m.

    Oh god yes, yes, yes. I will have my beast of a new computer by then. Alrighty, here it goes: DO WAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNTTTT!!!!!!!!111oneoneeleven
  • Jesse1066 - February 4, 2011 8:37 p.m.

    I've waited five years, and there's finally a trailer! YES!
  • Gameguy94 - February 4, 2011 8:25 p.m.

    I hope i can fly a Warthog jet. Those things are just so cool! So this is yet another awesome shooter to come out this year to have a 3 in its title. Decisions,Decisions.....
  • Jbo87 - February 4, 2011 7:20 p.m.

    The trailer gave us the only detail we need. This is being released in autumn this year. Nothing else matters.
  • GrandMoffBubbles - February 4, 2011 6:58 p.m.

    I cannot wait!
  • GrandTheftAuto - February 4, 2011 6:50 p.m.

    Just so you all know they WILL have support for 64 players online for pc they will have prone for pc and they will have singleplayer co-op :)You will be able to play in New york, Paris and Teheran etc with a NEW engine Frostbite 2.0 :D
  • supersmurfybob - February 4, 2011 3:32 p.m.

    I guess all I really want from this game is to be a better Bad Company 2 and I'm sold. But with mod support, which already sounds like blasphemy. And who cares if its short and shows barely anything? Modern Warfare 2's teaser was just the start of no russian, but in sound wave form, and that was dissected by friggin everyone.

    I think it's the first time I'm going to make one of these comments... *Inhales a lot of air* OMG I WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANT!!!11!!1!1!!11!1one!1!1one!!!1!!one!1!!!1!!1!
  • InFeRnOg - February 4, 2011 2:32 p.m.

    Please DICE, develop the PC version separately from the console versions. Bad Company 2 and Vietnam are pretty sweet, but they still feel a bit too console-ized for my liking (e.g. no prone position).
  • HumorTumor - February 4, 2011 2:31 p.m.

    Oh, do badly want. And as for what do I want in it. Well, I'm fairly certain Dice is doing everything I want. But a Famas would be nice...and not the one from Black Ops. I want the proper one Solid Snake used in MGS1
  • RicePuddingUK - February 4, 2011 2:28 p.m.

    Just read the CVG report, sounds really original (!) An Elite US Marine soldier travelling a wartorn world killing everything. Why can't they go back to the original Battlefields? Where you had the USA, Great Britain and Russia and other nations versus each other, why is it always US vs Russia now?
  • erbclub - February 4, 2011 1:33 p.m.

    I actually liked the trailer, very cinematic and leaves you wanting more, but yea it shows nothing about the game really.
