I still think that they are over-exaggerating when they say that there is no setup/rig that can max it out. Yes the game does look very good and GPU/CPU intensive but still I think GTX 580 SLI and an i7-2600 @ 4.5 can max it out.
based on what exactly? you have absolutely nothing to back that up!

Well it is a know fact that the hardware right now is ahead of software when it comes to gaming. Often issues related to performance are due to deadlines, bad code optimization, and most games being ported from an inferior platform. These are all really just 1 issue.

Battlefield 3 has the benefit of being built for PC and then optimized for consoles. This approach should yield better visuals for console and better performance for PC in general since it is the base for testing. But this is a double edged sword. Since the game we are getting is going to be engineered for computer, they will push the graphics and power needed much further.

They probably mean that the way we do. No current system will maintain 60+ FPS on a 64 man server with the graphics set to balls to the wall. Yeah, there will be plenty of systems out that we have right now that will run the game at max graphical detail and hit 60 FPS. They will not be able to hold it there when the dust starts flying, fires are burning, and tracer rounds are flying over your head.

ummm....well let's see.....

Didn't they showcase many gameplay videos already ? let's assume that it was on max settings, at least for now. It was obviously too smooth (45+ fps in my opinion).

As I remember they said that they ran the first 3 demos on a single GTX 580 (or was it SLI?)

So yeah, I think it would be valid to say that you can max it out with the current high-end hardware.

Seriously, the more in-game videos I see the more the game starts to look similar to BC2 graphically, there was defiantly an obvious graphics upgrade but not to the point that it won't be able max it out with decent performance ( constant 45 fps). Heck with my current setup I get around 80 to 145 fps in BC2 and that's on max res (1080) and AA, AF..etc.

Now imagine GTX 580 SLI and an i7 2600 @ 4.XXGhz or i7 990x.

It all depends on their definition of "Maxed out" mine playing the game on the highest settings possiable with max resolution, AA and AF.

first assumption and it's more than likely false. my point though,
is even if you turned out to be right, you are assuming. you could
very likely assume wrong.

Well I'm 90% sure, I bet you played more games than me, you should know how a game would run by the look of it unless it was a badly coded game. :pimp:

Ah yes the oft-mentioned "prison colony roots" :laugh:

Perhaps trying to break from this stained past is the reason they seem to be the Nanniest of the Nanny States down there. :)

That is the great thing about the word assume. You can be
wrong and you still don't look all that bad. :D

Daniel Matros (zh1nt0) wrote on 2011-07-20 @ 14:53 in the EA UK forums:
Battlefield 3 Alpha Trial is set up only for testing purposes. Keys have been distributed to invited players through our veterans program and other key influencers.

For more info, go to https://bf3alpha.battlefield.com/index.php?id=1 and read the rest in the FAQ.

Question: What is the Battlefield 3 Closed Alpha Trial?

Answer: It is a highly tech focused test period where the main purpose is to do a number of server related tests in preparation for game launch requiring a set amount of players online to ensure the final experience is as much fun and easy as possible.

Q: Is this the Beta promised to buyers of Medal of Honor: Limited Edition?

A: No, this is an Alpha Trial, meaning this software is still not at the "Beta" development milestone. The Open Beta will start in September. The exact date for when Medal of Honor: Limited Edition players can join the Beta will be announced at a later date.

Q: Can I join the Battlefield 3 Closed Alpha Trial?

A: The Alpha is a closed test and by invitation only. If you'd like to have a chance to be called upon make sure to register for our newsletter and ensure your Veteran status is up to date.

Q: What if I don't have an EA account?

A: If you need to create an EA account, please sign up via the EA Profile Page.

Q: Do I need to know anything about the Alpha Trial on the Windows PC before I start?

A: Yes, you'll need to download and install Origin so you can redeem your code, and download the client. Do this first! It'll save you time later, and you'll be able to experience the action that much faster! To learn more about Origin, visit About Origin.

Q: What are the minimum hardware recommendations for the Alpha Trial?

A: RECOMMENDED WINDOWS PC SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
OS: Windows 7 or Vista (SP1)
Installed: Origin
CPU: Quadcore @ 2.0 GHz or faster
RAM: 4GB or more
Hard Drive: 7.25 GB free disk space
Video: 256 MB or greater
DirectX 10 or 11 compatible card with latest drivers (AMD 11.5 or later, nVidia 275.33 or later)
Sound: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible card
Internet: broadband connection

Note that these do not necessarily represent the requirements for the final game.


Q: Are the specs I have seen on the internet the official recommended Windows PC specs for Battlefield 3?

A: We have not announced our recommended or minimum specs so anything at this point is speculation. If you have been invited to the Windows PC version of the Alpha, the recommended specs for this particular test, and thus not reflective of the final version of the game.

Q: How do I launch the Alpha Trial?

A: You can either launch the game from Origin, which will take you to the Battlelog, or you can go directly to the Battlelog site. If this is your first visit to the Battlelog portal, definitely install the prompted plug-in, as it's required for this testing phase.

Q: Why can't I log in to my account? Am I using the correct EA account?

A: If you think you have multiple accounts and need assistance in locating the proper one or you've forgotten your username and/or password, contact us and we'll get you fixed up right away. We can also unify your different EA personas in one account as long as you can validate that you are, in fact, you.

Q: How do I link my old EA account to my new EA account?

A: Electronic Arts has updated its account management system. This new system will help you keep track of your EA accounts and will improve the management of your accounts. "Old" accounts can include Battlefield 2, 1942, and 2142. If you haven't touched your old EA accounts in a while, there's no better time to get everything on the new system.

To link your "old" EA account to your new EA account, perform the steps listed below:
Go to https://profile.ea.com/login.do
Click the Learn More button at the bottom of the screen.
Enter your classic screen name and password in the Upgrade your account section.
You will be brought to a list of names related to the e-mail address associated with each screen name.
Enter the required information and agree to the Terms of Service.
Once you agree, your chosen screen names will be upgraded to EA's new account system.

If you still encounter resistance, please contact EA Customer Support.

Q: Where can I go to discuss the game with other Alpha participants?

A: Once you've redeemed your Alpha code, you can visit the Battlelog to share your experiences, and trade strategies and tactics with like-minded players. You can also fill out survey questions to help us improve the Battlefield 3 experience.

Sorry, I ninja edited the System Requirements in...
No problem. Now it has something more interesting.
It seems it's going to be a bit of a RAM hog and a processor dependent game.
Doesn't mention 64-bit OS... :\
Only 256MB for the GPU? :wtf:
Then again, system requirements never mention screen resolution, so I'm thinking a beefier card will be needed for 1920x1080.

I gare-on-tee Origin will be required for the Beta in September also. Take solace in the fact that you won't have to run Origin all the time, at start-up.

They are going after Steam. So we will all have to use this crap for future digital content from EA. Then Blizzard will, Codemasters etc. These people are nuts.

I, and a bunch of other owners of MoH:LE received this email today that had an attachment saying my spot in the BF3 beta is reserved and that they'll email me when the beta is available to me. Fellow owners of MoH:LE, check your emails!

New Battlefeld Blog post: Battleblog #3: With An Army By Your Side

Welcome to the third installment of the Battleblog, a blog series taking you all the way to the launch of Battlefield 3 on October 25th! In this blog series, you’ll learn more about every aspect of our biggest shooter ever. This time out is a look at Battlelog with Producer Fredrik Loving.

Never go into battle alone again thanks to the powerful new community features of Battlelog, Battlefield 3’s unique no-cost social network. “We want to make Battlefield 3 a more social gaming experience and it all starts with Battlelog,” says Fredrik Loving, Battlelog Producer at DICE. “We are changing how you communicate, play, compete and share content with their friends, extending the in-game experience to be accessible from your home computer, on your handheld devices while commuting, or wherever you may be." And that’s what DICE set out to do.

With Battlelog, players will be able to build a network of friends, communicate with other gamers, and compare their Battlefield stats with friends and foes alike. It brings all of the social aspects of Battlefield into a single location, allowing you to coordinate any action at the push of a button and get into the game as easily as possible. What’s the cost for Battlelog? Nothing. It’s absolutely free.



Included in Battlelog is the Battlefeed, your entry point to this new program. The Battlefeed is your main window into Battlelog, showing current events around your network in real-time, giving you a live snapshot of what those in your network are doing in the world of Battlefield. “The feed will encourage people to play even more,” explains Loving. “They will see their friends ranking up, receiving awards they don’t have yet, or getting the new cool guns they have been missing. It will increase the competitive edge. Everything you do on the battlefield is shared amongst your friends.”

You’ll be able to see when a friend unlocks a particularly difficult achievement and offer them kudos. Another pal just joined a multiplayer Rush match in Operation Métro and is looking for some help – now you know, so you can quickly jump in and give them a hand. If someone just nabbed your dog tag in multiplayer, they can shoot you a quick note to say thanks (or, more likely, use those newly anointed bragging rights). It’s all here in the real-time feed for you to share, comment and like.



With a game as highly-competitive as Battlefield, it only makes sense to have a nicely detailed stat-tracking system. With that in mind, we’ve incorporated a fully-featured soldier progression section, bringing full stats tracking for every shot fired and every action performed in your Battlefield career. “Battlefield players love their statistics,” says Loving. “Now we will give them everything that they want while adding a social layer on top of that.”

Do you want to know what your next unlock is and what you need to do to unlock it? Are you curious about how your skills compare to your friends? Do you simply want to track your multiplayer progress? It’s all here, all the time. Every match you’ve played is accounted for, with all of your stats represented in full detail, and so much more! Be sure to stay tuned – we’ll be unveiling the full suite of features found in Battlelog at a later date.

Stay tuned for BF3 Battleblog #4 soon.
