EA deploys Battlefield 3 launch trailer

It's T-minus 4 days until the Battlefield 3 hype ends and the actual game time begins. That's 96 more hours for EA and Dice to convince shooter fans of the intensely epic wartime adventure that awaits them next Tuesday, beginning with the release of BF3's official launch trailer. Warning: minds may be blown.

As if some fans needed more incentive, EA announced yesterday it would be packaging copies of Battlefield 3 with a code that players can redeem for an early access demo of Mass Effect 3's multiplayer mode. It's unlikely this will make or break someone's choice to buy Battlefield 3, but it's a nice little bonus nonetheless.

Naturally, GR has been following DICE's shooter for some time now, and have had ample time to get a sense of how the sequel plays. If you're looking for ways to fill up the next four nights, why not read our latest previews here and here.
