I’ll be posting an epic Battlefield 3 review tomorrow, and giving away a few copies of the game, but before that I wanted to put up a little Q&A I got to have with DICE, the game’s developer. I tried to focus on issues that a are a little more relevant to the TechCrunch reader instead of just the FPS player.
These questions were posed before the release of the game and before I wrote the… → Read More
You’ve watched the videos, played the beta, and read the storyline. Battlefield 3 gets real next week and this final trailer shows the insane single player mode. Oh, and enjoy the remake original Battlefield theme music. It gave me chills. → Read More
I was lucky enough to be able to play a partial round of Battlefield 3 yesterday, but unfortunately DICE and EA were very insistent that no cameras would be allowed inside. That rule seems to have been laxified today, as there’s a pair of videos up showing off the very experience I got. Curious? Watch on. → Read More
EA’s been teasing Battlefield 3 for the last few months with demos and gameplay clips and it’s finally launching. The latest incarnation of EA’s long-standing shooter franchise is hitting this fall — October 25th, to be exact. Select fans will be able to get a taste of Battlefield 3 bit early when the multi-platform beta drops this coming September. Click through for an… → Read More
*Chills* Wanna see more? Like Battlefield on Facebook and Dice/EA will release a 12 minute video once they hit a million. Yeah, I don’t like it either but I’m more than willing to pimp out my Facebook page to see that video. → Read More
I just hope BF3 plays as good as it looks. → Read More
PC gamers—those who aren’t destroying the universe, at least—have at least one genuine PC game to look forward to this year, and that’s Battlefield 3. All of us here are pretty excited about, and we’re generally tough graders. Anyhow, Dice revealed the game at GDC this week, and they’ve rushed to the defense of PC gamers, saying that the “death of PC gaming” is “bullshit.”… → Read More
This will be the year of Battlefield. The next proper game in the series, Battlefield 3, was revealed at GDC only a few hours ago (I had actually seen the game in action about two weeks ago, and needless to say I’m fully confident it will be the multi-player shooter of the year.
Sorry, every other game.), and we’ve also learned some more about the upcoming Battlefield Play4Free, primarily… → Read More
Start your day off right with a nearly three minutes of Battlefield 3 in-game footage. Be warned, it’s going to cost more of your day than just three minutes because you’re going to watch it again and again and again. → Read More
Battlefield 3 doesn’t even have a release date yet, but EA has already started talking about DLC. Sigh. It’s a bit disappointing: so many of us here (well, me, Matt, and Devin) are genuinely looking forward to the game, and we’re already being teased with offers of almighty DLC. It’s so unsettling. → Read More
Here’s hoping that Battlefield 3 gets big enough to make proper use of its massive 64 player maps, but not so big that it attracts the MW2 team deathmatch idiots. → Read More
Let it be known that 2011 will be the year that console gamers will be jealous of their PC gaming brethren. (As if that matters, but whatever.) Red Orchestra 2, Crysis 2, and the mighty Battlefield 3 will be best experienced on the PC, and if you’re sitting there on your couch, controller in hand, you’re really not getting the full experience. Sorry. → Read More
There it is. Too bad it doesn’t show a damn thing. I guess that’s why it’s the “Teaser Trailer.” → Read More
Still waiting for the PC version of Battlefield 1943? You’re going to be waiting quite a bit longer, I’m afraid—which is to say you’re going to be waiting forever as the game has been cancelled. Dice says it wants to focus on making Battlefield 3, the next game in the popular series, “the best Battlefield ever,” hence the cancellation. No use diverting resources to what amounts to… → Read More
