Dude, Im at work not at home. is it even possible to dvr a EA stream?
If it's on Spike TV
Two links from Twitter saying "new BF3 video"...either of these work for anyone?
It's probably this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM_AbcE5lyE (It shows a mix of old and new stuff)
EA Playing whack-a-mole on youtube. current survivor.
Yes both play. Same vid looks like; second is larger view and maybe higher res.
Wow this is tits. If you were waiting for some more multiplayer footage this is it. Still just snippets but I have a good idea of just how freaking incredible this game is going to be now.
Well they showed roughly twenty min of MW3 today on spike,I must say it looks fubard compared to BE3.Same old run n gun COD that we all are getting sick of,At least the game continues were Burger Town leaves off in MW2.
Confirmed during E3 Presentation
Battlefield 3 coming in October, beta in September
woohoo OPEN BETA
New trailer here.
IMHO that presentation with tanks was the worse possible choice ever. Simply boring.
Effin Yeah Mofos!!!!
MW3 Fubar is right.
Multiplayer gameplay was slim in the presentation. That tank level was single player footage.
Hope we get a good amount of shaky-cam footage of people playing the demo level on the show floor over the next couple of days...
The Dice guy was playing on a PC. Wondering what hardware was in the machine.
Metro level Multiplayer Trailer on YouTube
Gas Masks, huh?
Masks are cool!
Yet to get a much better idea, turn the sound off.
Sadly I wanted to see jets.
So now we know it's October and we'll have an open beta in September.
Well, i saw Recoil, something that doesn't exist with the railguns/weapons MW has. Also liking the animation from jumping over ledge or pulling out the guns.
A comment on RPS:
Bwahahaha yes people really are that stupid.
Epic TANK BATTLE FOOTAGE!
Looks epic, I like it.
I never thought id ever see a PC showing off a game demo at an E3 Press Conference. Im eatching the EA one right now. and when they show the tank assault the guy is playing on a PC. Love you Dice!
Holy freakin' balls
This looks incredible. I hope I'll be able to run it. Might need a new graphics card by then.
This official EA Press release is actually pretty informative: EA Claims the Battlefield on October 25 with the Launch of Highly-Anticipated Battlefield 3

DICE Entices Fans with Revolutionary Frostbite 2 Engine, Signature Battlefield Gameplay Crafted by World Class Development Team and Early Access to Battlefield 3 with Multi-Platform Beta in September
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The fight is on! DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ:ERTS), today announced that Battlefield 3™, the next installment in the internationally acclaimed Battlefield series, will be available on October 25, 2011. After three years of development, the spectacular new game leaps ahead of the competition thanks to the unique power of the Frostbite™ 2 game engine. The technology advances the state of the art, and serves as the power center that allows Battlefield 3 to deliver superior performance in character animation, visual rendering, audio/sound and physical destruction. Battlefield 3 is the only FPS in the marketplace using Frostbite 2, and the only shooter capable of making the gameplay experience feel alive with all the sights, sounds, movements and action of real-world incursions.

Battlefield 3 will be shown on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC this week at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles in EA's booth located at #1601 in the South Hall.
"We are proud to finally open the curtains and reveal Battlefield 3. The core development team has been together since 2005. We've grown together, taken some knocks together and now, we're ready to take first person shooters to a whole new level, together," said Patrick Bach, Executive Producer. "Like so many gamers out there, we've had some pretty wild ideas about what we'd want to see in a shooter. Until now, it was all just fantasy. But with Frostbite 2, even our most far-reaching ideas are becoming a reality. This is the game we've always wanted to create."
Battlefield 3 captures the intense reality of modern warfare across the globe. DICE is working closely with highly decorated ex-SAS operator and acclaimed author, Andy McNab, to ensure the authenticity and grittiness of today's war is captured in both the single player and multiplayer campaigns. In the single player chapters being highlighted at E3, two new playable characters are introduced. Dmitri "Dima" Mayakovsky, a Russian undercover agent, must fight his way from the Paris Stock Exchange through the crowded city streets in a desperate attempt to stop PLR operatives from detonating a dirty bomb in the heart of Paris. Jonathan "Jono" Miller, a Marine Corporal from America's heartland, is deployed to the barren dustbowl of the Tehran desert to engage PLR forces. This chapter showcases a classic Battlefield vehicle warfare experience as players embark on a large scale tank attack to neutralize the PLR base. The popular Battlefield multiplayer mode ‘Rush' is also back and will be playable on PC in the EA booth.
