I would agree apart from the fact that amazon.co.uk always has their new PC games priced cheaper than play.com. Usually by up to £5 which means you can buy 1st class delivery and still pay less than at play.com.

Amazon.co.uk > Play.com

No, probably not until a month or 2... I guess not until the beta is here.

Source - http://www.battlefield-company.de/20...e-screenshots/

Extra info from inside:

-Aiming for CY Q4 2011 release
-Concept for BF3 has been in the works for years, waiting on proper tech to seamlessly come together
-Frosbite 2.0 is the culmination of this tech, entirely re-written
-Lighting sounds neat, one "probe" contains more lighting information than an entire BFBC2 level.
-Level destruction is going to be "believable" but basically everything is destructible.
-Character animations powered by ANT, what EA Sports uses.
-AI characters and multiplayer characters have different animation sets
-No more "gliding" animations that look off, animation realism is a focus
-Captured their own war audios (bullets, tanks, helicopters, etc) at different distances to ensure realism
-Better audio cues for certain actions, more easily able to listen for threats
-Plan on better, more immediate post release content
-More unlocks than BFBC2
-Dice trying to find a good balance between customization of your character and not having "pink rabbit hat(s)"
-4 classes
-Will talk about squads "later"
-Looking into a theater mode but can't talk about it
-Will have co-op
-There will be a kill-cam but it can be turned off
-BF3's team is almost twice as big as the team for BFBC2
-They want the pacing of the single player mode to be balanced, with highs and lows. Makes the comparison to a song vs a guitar solo.
-Part of the single player mode takes place in Sulaymaniyah - Iraqi Kurdistan.
-"lalalala" will be used often, so M rates for sure
-There will be an earthquake in a level. The destruction sounds very impressive. 7 story building collapses, looks very well done
-Significant narrative that goes with the SP mode
-More than one setting, you're not in the middle east for the whole game
-PC version is lead version
-Why 64 players for PC only? No complains from the console crowd.
-No mod tools at release. Maybe none down the line either. Frosbite 2.0 is complex and mods tools would have to be dumbed down, so does Dice really want to put their time to that or would it be better spent elsewhere?

Some info about ingame stuff:

Sandvichman94 xxxewwewew
k, 2 things, i wont need a monster pc that is water cooled right? Also, should i buy my parts now, or buy it during/after the summer?

repi
I would by after summer, and no you do not need an absolute monster machine


Blond3r
Thx4reply. U mentioned PS3. Is PS3 still THE challenge for developers compared to the 360? Will FB2 bring the PS3/360 to their limits?

repi
yes and yes


SLBartley
Is Frostbite going to be licensed out, or is strictly a DICE tool?


repi
Frostbite is not going to be licensed out, strictly DICE/EA internal tech. we focus on creating great games, not selling tech


Flyfunner5
does this mean no modding? & how about random weather effects, time of map, & unscripted destruction. D2.0 is a bore


repi
licensing has nothing to do with modding


asmzn2009
#BF3 will have a DX11 only engine?? Meaning i'll be forced to upgrade?


repi
#BF3 requires a DX10 or DX11 GPU yes + Vista or Win7. time to leave the 10 year old WinXP & let the PC show its true strength


Blond3r
Really nice demo. Looks awesome. What I would like to know: How much more 'destruction' can the engine deliver e.g. compared with BC2?

repi
can't really comment on the destruction at this time, but will be more information out about it over time

siemper
hej man!, Question..does BF3 caputre the real BF2 experience? or it's more in the style of BC2? I hope the BF2 expericne, it rocked!


repi
is a true sequel to bf2. but don't take my word for it, wait until you see & try it yourself and decide


Eyce_Au
Have you got an eta on recommended specs for #BF3? Kinda delaying my next PC build until I see them (I play BC2 on low atm )


repi
probably be quite some time until we announce the #bf3 min + req spec as we need to do more testing. but later = cheaper/better HW!


Johan 'repi' Andersson - Rendering Architect GamerOfFreedom
Has the draw distance been improved in FB2 so we dont get boxes popping up out of the blue?


repi
that is not an engine issue, but a game performance/quality tradeoff


Tuxey
What are the waring factions in the game? or is that still under NDA?


repi
we havent said anything about the story yet, and definitely wont do it over twitter, so wait for more information


GameZenith
Seriously, why does DICE have to "set their sights" on Call of Duty in regards to Battlefield 3? They're two different types of games. #bf3


repi
that was GameInformer that wrote the text on their cover, not DICE

Evil_Paladin
so when will hear more on #BF3 console versions? I have a subscription to game informer, should I start there?


repi
the game informer article is definitely the next source of information


armerius
Any word about the recommended specs?


repi
no not yet


ivanassen
Nice! Can't wait for the screenshots! What's the conspiracy theory behind pulling the reveal earlier from GDC, though


repi
thanks! this is more of a tease compared to what will be at GDC


Alan 'Demize99' Kertz - Gameplay Designer OD32
Will there be tracer darts?


Demize99
No, no tracer darts. That's a bit too BC and not enough BF.


Blond3r
Hi. Regarding #BF3 teaser. Would u confirm these vehicles: AH-64, Bell UH-1Y, UH-60, F/A-18, SU-37, M1A2, LAV-25, M2 Bradley,HMMWV


Demize99
No, I won't confirm any vehicles from the teaser. #NoCommen
t

mhurley187
I'm determined to get an answer other than 'no comment'. Will there be sand in Battlefield 3?

Demize99
One of the cities is Tehran... Yes, yes there will be sand.


Airrik99
What's up with spotting? In or Out?


Demize99
It's in, I just don't know how it works yet.


Irrational_LA
Killcam?

Demize99
Yep, not talking about that kinda specifics yet either.


coddan1
whats the thought behind making the bf3 cover so similar to bc2? wouldnt it make sense to differentiate the series from eachother


Demize99
It has a dude, a tank, and the inner fire of a soldier. Yeah, ok, I see the similarity, but which one sold more BC2 or BF2?

XStalkerxx
Hi man! do you know if theres any chance us PC'ers will get BattleRecorder in #BF3?


Demize99
I have no comment on Battle Recorder. #BF3


mgremont
Hi, And what about SDK and lan support in #BF3 on PC?


Demize99
No comment.

Evil_Paladin
do consoles get #BF3 limited edition to?


Demize99
Yes, consoles will be able to get the Limited Edition too #BF3


Evil_Paladin
one more question, assuming #BF3 has 24 players online, have you guys made the maps that work out fot it?


Demize99
Maps will of course take player count as a factor. Not all modes in BC2 were 24/32 and map size adjusted. Trust us a bit #BF3


GamerOfFreedom
Regarding tracers in BF3/FB2 will they reflect light to surfaces? So we can really see the tracers at night?


Demize99
Tracers are in, period. Players need to feel the fire fight, and tracers add to that feeling. You can hide other ways.


Sandvichman94
Will the pc version have controller support, and aim assist like bfbc2? I like using a controller.


Demize99
It's not decided yet, I'm ok with it though... Mouse is still more accurate


M0t0rBreath
The BC2 C4 might cause trouble in BF3. Especially in maps like Wake or that have airfields. You guys using the same set-up? #BF3


Demize99
Something like the method of C4 throwing way too detailed to be confirming now.

coddan1
with less players on consoles, how will that affect mapmaking? will consoles have different maps, or will the maps have to shrink?


Demize99
No comment on player counts.


Leopardi_
are you planning to include proper FoV handling with scalable weapon models like on MoH?


Demize99
MoH MP and BC2 used the same weapon and FOV systems... BF3 is an upgraded version.


Airrik99
Is there really a valid reason why PS3 won't have 64 players?


Demize99
Of course, we didn't say "oh console players don't want 64 players." Network performance and cpu/gpu power and memory.


bitcloudrzr
Yes, I would also like to know the PS3 player count for this game. Would it be in the new GI March edition?


Demize99
yes it's in gi


Evil_Paladin
will both #BF3 ps3 and 360 be equally the same? having a hard time choosing which platform to pre order on

Demize99
A bit early to say.

Killzone_Kid
Why do we need prone again?


Demize99
Community Service for starts. It's better integrated into gameplay for 2nd. Third it fits our physical focus.


Christina Ann Coffin - Platform Specialist - Frostbite Engine Coder ScottGrill
64 is fine. Loved it in BF2. Why only 24 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 though? Hardware limitations? No dedicated servers?


ChristinaCoffin
we'll support as many as we can +maybe extra provided it maintains the integrity of the play experience.

armerius
SHARE with us! XD or at least a gtx 460 1gb should be enough to play the game?


ChristinaCoffin
we haven't announced formal target spec, but yes it would run on that. We are supporting a lot of highly scalable gfx features


ChristinaCoffin
if you want a lot more info on #bf3 I *strongly* suggest you get the March issue of game informer


ChristinaCoffin
teaser trailers are you know, made for teasing



repi
Ok so how many of you gamers are building a new PC for our #BF3 and what hardware will you use? Highly recommend Win7 64-bit + DX11 GPU


GO!
