I'm sure the multiplayer and co-op experience will be great :)  I think the co-op will be really fun simply because I believe the action will be great. As long as there's great action it will be enjoyable when playing with a friend (for me, personally).

As for a storyline... I'd love if there was a good one, but I won't complain as long as the co-op and multiplayer is enjoyable, which I'm sure it will be.

Ive always enjoyed playing co-op with a friend:)  More games should have Campaign co-op. Plus i know i will be setting the difficulty level to the hardest because thats when co-op games are most enjoyable:) 

@Gman450 i love single player games but i dont see this game having a good SP story due to the fact that they have been a multiplayer focused franchise.

I didnt like the BAD COMPANY SP aspect just because i hated those stupid unfunny characters.

I actually don't expect the SP to be a disappointing! :p  That 12 minute gameplay trailer changed my expectations, I think it at least won't be bad.

I'm building a new computer specifically for this. I'm looking forward to the SP but I'll probably be online about 10 hours a day to begin with.

Same here. I'm building a new computer without a GPU so I can afford better parts, and planning to get a nice GPU in october for BF3 when I have more money to spend. If it wasn't for school I'd put in 10 hours a day as well, but I'm limited to only about 5 :(

the water looks nice but the rest looks like BC2... it doesnt really look at all much different... then again the open beta for bc2 had the same kind of issues... pitty on release they still hadnt fixed them...
i seriously hope they dont do what they did in bc2 with the gfx scaling.
dx9 looked virtualy no different to dx11 because they used cheats to emulate dx10 effects... things like that, could have taken a lot less resorces if they had just used dx10 to create them propperly. and left them out of the dx9 version... and dx11 support particularly sucked... i couldnt honestly tell the difference apart from the framerate drops... i really do hope they sort it out for this ittereation.

Apparently, in those screenshots, the game is running on low settings with low resolution and currently has driver issues.

It's on the Facebook page that OP linked. Scroll down until you see the picture that was uploaded yesterday at 7:59am. Click on it and it will say that in the description. I don't believe that is official though as in the FAQ released today, they stated that it will be in September but the exact date will be announced in the future.

Sod the singleplayer, BF is a mulitplayer game. End of, and looking at this gave me a trouser crisis! I just wish they would release it on steam and that I could get earlier access to the game without buying the P.O.S game that is MOH.

July 21, 2011 11:49:39 AM

watta ya mean by this? you get early acces if you bought MOH?


and thanks for link. even on early state its looking amazing. no bunny hoppin BS

soldiesrs look and feel real, like they have weight! i wonder if the WHOLE world is destructible.
BFBC2 was decent but smaller when compared to BC2.

fully destructible but maps we fillled in the rights spots.

Aha yeah Rivo, I said that to my friends when I linked them to the 12 minute trailer when it was released. I saw the very beginning of the trailer, paused it, and crapped my pants. Then I gave them the link so we could all watch it at the same time and said "Guys...look at this. THIS is the next generation of FPS."

not sure why your so negative. its VERY HARD to see BF3 not doing well. ALL they'd really have to do at a VERY BARE MINIMUM is RECREATE BF2 EXACTLY as it is today, sprinkle in some BFBC2 as far as destructible environments, and they have an instant hit lol

and thats at a minimum.

and a game looking/playing at an alpha state like this.......i mean can you imagine.

its been a long time ive played a good shooter so me, i cant count the days!

id be hard pressed if they messed this up.
theyre coming to be number one and with unlimited $ that EA is throwing at it. i dont see them failing. its the only shot they have @ CoD series. so i cant really see them failing.

as far as SP goes.......who really plays these games SP. theyre meant to be MP.
crysis always been so-so with story so i wasnt expecting halo type involvement with it.

I couldn't care less about how ignorant I am to think Battlefield 3 will be as amazing as many people are making it out to be. I believe it will not disappoint, and will stir the pot as much as I like. This is coming from someone who did not think the same thing of any of the recent shooters including Crysis 2, BFBC2, BO, MW2, etc. I did not have particularly high hopes for any one of those games.

Guys we are all entitled to our own opinions:)  I think BF3 will set a new standard for FPS shooters, giving birth to a new quality of shooters.

Thats my 2 cents worth haha

But i have to admit EA/DICE arnt marketing this very well atm,
All they have to do it show more multiplayer and they have won.

They could of easily done this by showing some solid multiplayer at E3
but, hey what do i know right? im just a gamer.

Stupid EA lol

This game will be completely epic but I would put money on the fact that EA will continue with their well implemented style of release.
Game goes live - woohoo, gogogogo, login login login, unable to connect WTF?
1 Week later a 1gb patch comes out to fix eveything.
Ok login, gogogogogogo, FFS still cant connect!
Arghhh.
2 Weeks later you finally get a decent game in, was it worth it? F**K yeah!

I have always liked the COD series over the BFBC series but have grown rather bored of COD as of late as it seems nothing new has been done except customization of classes...Hopefully BF3 will take the throne when it comes out. I will also still get MW3 but if they want me to put in good amounts of game time they better step it up a notch from previous versions. Looking forward to both!
