Default Battlefield 3


Battlefield 3 is the latest game in development by DICE. It was officially confirmed June 10, 2009 during the William Blair Growth Stock Conference, with rumors surfacing as early as 2006. Including the engine, development time is estimated to be anywhere from four to six years.
The title has been confirmed as multiplatform, however the PC version is the lead platform and is assured to be up to the previous standard.
This version is being developed around DirectX 11 and 64-bit OS' under the new overhauled Frostbite 2 game engine. Console versions are being developed around the same engine.

Features

The following are confirmed features:
  • Modern era
  • 64-player multiplayer (PC)
  • Four classes
  • Single player and co-op campaign
  • Land, sea and air vehicles (jets confirmed)
  • Prone (all platforms)
  • Bullet drop (same for all guns, deeper system than BC2)
  • Knives
  • Dog tags
  • Spotting (WIP, 2D minimum, balanced 3D ideal)
  • Friendly fire (optional)
  • Highly dynamic, varied, and destructible environments (most everything is destructible)
  • Locations: Europe, Middle-East (Tehran, Sulaymaniyah) and North America
  • More unlocks than in BC2
  • Appearance customization system
Technology

Some of the following confirmed technical features apply only to the PC version:
  • Dynamic radiosity and particle lighting (new lighting system, high quality but not costly, single lighting 'probe' has more info than an entire BC2 level)
  • Rewritten object culling system (object culling refers to objects rendered only when visible, which improves performance)
  • New animation system ("ANT") borrowed from EA Sports label (greatly improved animation, separate animations for AI and multiplayer)
  • Full DirectX 11 support
  • Eyefinity support
  • Multicore optimization
  • Multithreading support (more variation, detail, improved load times, smoother performance)
  • Compute shader support (more dynamic light sources, richer environments, better performance)
  • Deferred rendering
  • HDR
  • Tessellation (more detailed and more realistically rendered objects)
  • Audio captured from realistic sources for maximum realism as always, improved (brighter, less noisy, easier to locate footsteps, gunfire, etc., more accurate portrait of war)
  • Superior motion blur, morphological anti-aliasing via DirectX 11/DirectCompute (PC only)

Possible features

The following features are under consideration but are not confirmed:
  • Kill-cam (optional)
  • Battle recorder
  • Mod tools (post-release)
  • 24-player multiplayer (consoles only, not finalized yet)

Limited Edition
Karkand brings a lot of content from series favourite Battlefield 2 in to Battlefield 3: four maps (including Strike at Karkand, presumably), weapons and vehicles, plus achievements, trophies, and other goodies to be detailed later. The maps will of course be enhanced with all the new Frostbite 2 engine has to offer, including destruction. Those who pre-order will receive the content free; we assume it will be available as DLC for those who do not.

Sounds

One thing I noticed when checking the info - I may just get a proper PC to run this on full MEGA quality for one reason - MOD TOOLS. CAN I HEAR A PROJECT REALITY?

I came late to the Project Reality Scene, and had moved onto Cod4 by that time I found out about it, it was only the engine and the need to shell out for a PC that I wasn't keen on at the time. But now, there's BF3, yet the option (hopefully) to have accurately represented squad based mission objective combat. (Remembers the days of overwatch on Arma with the FN Minimi with SUSAT in a Merlin)

So long as I can still jam jets into the face of the opposition and slap C4 to jeeps before speeding to my doom, I'm happy.
