EA announces a Battlefield 3 reality show starring NFL athletes, first teaser inside

“Taking to the battlefield in these real life war settings was really exciting and eye-opening,” said quarterback Drew Brees. “Every day men and women face challenges similar to what we tackled in this show but with potential dire consequences. Filming this show once again reinforced my respect for the soldiers who fight every day for our freedom.”

The first episode of Battlefield 3: Operation Gridiron can be found right now on the official Battlefield Facebook page followed by weekly updates. The show’s finale is scheduled to air on Spike TV on October 24 at 12:00am EST/PDT and at 11:00pm CST. So, are you ready for some Battlefieldball?
