    Battlefieldo.com - BF3 INTEL THIS EVENING: 2 NEW MULTIPLAYER MAPS + MORE

    Tonight, two sources of battlefield 3 information will be coming in. First, Gametrailers is hosting a show via Spike.tv showing off some new footage of Battlefield 3′s singleplayer campaign as well as a tour to the studio in Stockholm. This will be airing in North America at 1:05AM EST (GMT-5) / 12:05AM CST (GMT-6). We are currently trying to get a stream source of spike.TV so that you our viewers can have instant access to whatever will be shown. You can find out more info about this at the Gametrailers Page



    Secondly, and more importantly, IGN will be posting a huge amount of content at 3:00AM PST (GMT-8) / 6:00AM EST (GMT-5) this evening. According to the video posted, it will feature two new multiplayer maps and new singleplayer / coop footage. A little bird has delivered us some info and it’s to our knowledge that tomorrow, DICE is hosting a Press event in their office. This event is supposedly showcasing the FINAL BUILD of Battlefield 3. With only 18 days remaining until the game comes out, it’s almost time for it to go gold and be printed for retail. With this new batch of information coming, we will keep you posted here at Battlefield as the news comes in.

    Additional info from Planet Battlefield:

    Well i just did a full reformat! Needed to know if it was just drivers/BF3 or one of my cards, if its my cards im thinking of selling them and maybe getting a gtx580 for 400 or a 570 for 300 with and ssd for 109 at microcenter. When drivers/cards work right the game plays great. All i want is to run BF3 properly and CF seems buggy as hell, not sure what to do lol. Just waiting for beta to DL again and spend the morning playing to see if there are anymore CTD and BSOD related to driver/cards

    run the 11.10 drivers or 11.9 WHQLs follow erockers driver guide


    but in a nut shell

    uninstall EVERYTHING related to AMD,

    AMd vision center all drivers Catalyst install manager everything

    reboot use driver sweeper from http://phyxion.net/item/driver-sweeper.html

    reboot again install 11.9 WHQL or 11.10 preview do not install the Catalyst App profiles just use the basic drivers ive been running 11.10 preview nothing else and all has worked well getting 70-90fps in the BF3 beta with my 2x 6950 2gb cards

    You should wait in my opinion. Because crossfire 6870s out performs the gtx 580 or ties in almost all games.

    Just have to wait for good drivers so your cfx set up can blow away bf3.

    Drivers aren't going to do much with the beta which is a bit unstable. Wait for the actual game to release along with the drivers released with it.

    I went with the 11.9s as they seem the most stable for me with the 11.9 cap1 so ill see how it goes. Ill give it a few days after final release and see how it goes. Everythings a fresh install now so see how it goes! And wow i am really impressed at how realtek onboard sounds now, blew me away! might get me a 6990 end of the mth, whats a min PSU for that card?

    Played some more conquest, UMP with supressors are pretty useless in this map lol which I'm glad. Caspian Border is a completely different experience from Metro despite them being the same game.

    Yeah but I'm disappointed by how the defibrillator works. I hoped for that BF2 recharging sound and "CLEAR!". Too bad Dice forgot some things were better done in BF2 vs BC2.
    I'm shocked and excited that people finally die when you shoot them in their faces. Can't wait for all my headless chicken tard rushes.

    Wow at that caspian border open. It must be the first time console guys whine that they give something for PC and not the other way around :)

    Just got done playing on Caspian Border. Just amazing, and I'm a person who loves rush. Just the scope of it was great, 64 players is the way to go

    Don't know about that, I'm mostly dissapointed in how few players actually use it. There are five or six guy around you? All support for some reason.

    IMO I hate Metro, but it could have been a lot better if they made it 64 players. the map can clearly support more. in most of my games. the round ended in the park (stage one) and never even made it close to the final bomb site place. too many people camping and not enough people pushing forward. and those that were pushing forward like me, a mate and a handful of players lacked support and were mowed down by the opposing team with their OP UMP-45's
