Battlefield 3 hit PS3s, 360s and PCs nationwide today and
goes on sale for our European friends Friday. Now that the title is here we can
finally take video of any part of the game we want and share it with you, our
gentle readers. So here’s a taste of the first five minutes or so of BF3’s
single player campaign.
In case you’re confused, the opening is a flash forward
where your character escapes police custody because he has a train full of
terrorists to catch. After shooting up the train (simultaneously teaching
players FPS controls) and nearly saving the day, he’s caught and we can only
assume a screen pops up right after that saying “36 hours earlier,” or
something like that. Look for our review soon, as our normally very timely
review schedule has been thrown off somewhat due to unforeseen circumstances.
