I'm starting to hate all the Middle East shit. It's as if they are remaking BF2.
Or making a sequel to it. They've already confirmed it'll take place in Paris and New York to. Where would you prefer? They've already been to idyllic rural scenery with BC2, it's about time they return back to the Urban.

DICE has warned its rivals in the military shooter space that it's "here to win" with Battlefield 3 - and accused some of its competitors of "treading water".

"We are gearing up for a fight and we're here to win," said Karl Magnus Troedsson, General Manager, DICE.


"Where other shooters are treading water Battlefield 3 innovates. Frostbite 2 is a game-changer for shooter fans. We call it a next-generation engine for current-generation platforms."

Executive producer Patrick Bach added: "We wanted to create the most immersive and emotionally powerful Battlefield game ever and we needed new technology to deliver on our vision.

This looks too good to be true... almost pre-rendered with all the awesome animations and lights... will wait more footage to jump in the hype train.

Can't wait to hear the Killzone vs. Battlefield vs. Gears vs. Uncharted graphics arguments.
There is no argument. One is a PC game and the others are console titles. There's no way that Battlefield 3 on high is graphically inferior to any of those other titles you mentioned. No way.

Great to see they really bumped the lighting from BC:2, which was probably the weakest part of the game graphically.

Also, "Dat" meme needs to die

Doesn't matter. PC can be selectively ignored by people for arguments. I saw it quite a bit in Crysis 2 threads.

If it is as deep as BF2 was I will be there day one. Even if it means I have to upgrade my PC with the ridiculous prices that we get in Mexico.

I wish I could relive the experiences I had with the older BF games. Nothing causes me that excitement anymore...

Realtime Radiosity explains the lighting, they already showed that way back at Siggraph. So the lighting is real. They were talking about how they got a new animation system, so thats probably true to some extent at least. (no idea how scripted it is of course)

The real question is what kind of beast of a PC do you need to run the realtime radiosity.

The first Crysis came out in 2007, so 4 years later you would expect things to look this good.

My thoughts exactly. Radiosity is pretty much a performance killer with today's graphics cards. But the superb animation also makes me feel that there's a catch somewhere.

crysis 2 does it.. so why wouldn't frostbyte 2 be able to? and from the looks of it, its not true radiosity, its faked in a way to be very close to the actual thing.

I'm sorry but how exactly is it "fake"? Have you even read the presentation repi (Johan Andersson) gave about it?

Can't wait! Dragging your teamates out of fire is going to be awesome, and jets! Finally going to have a reason to hook up my flight stick.

That dragging could just be some single player canned animation stuff.

Looks amazing, I wonder how bad the console versions will look compared to this, no way I'm buying a new PC anytime soon. :(

Holy fucking shit.

Remember all of those prerendered bullshots and trailers before this generation? I think we finally have something that tops them.

Way to go DICE, that shit looks absolutely unreal. Can't wait for March 1st.

Also, I saw it mentioned earlier in the thread:

The DLC is NOT on-disc. It will be handled just like VIP DLC for Bad Company 2 is, a download. Basically it's EA trying to give people an incentive to buy the game new. That's all.

Oh, and I'm not the only one who is reminded of GRAW, right? It's the same kind of visceral, but somehow clean, visual style almost. I find it incredibly easy on the eyes and I stoked that DICE went with it.

Frostbite 2 uses Enlighten, which is realtime radiosity middleware. From what I can tell, BF3 will be the first game to use it.
I'm somewhat familiar with it, and it's very different from crytec's sun GI. It relies on a lot of offline preprocessing, but is physically correct GI (obviously for a given compression level).

Am I the only one who was thinking 'Terminator Salvation tune' instead of 'Battlefield tune'?

Expansion packs already? A year before release? I'm out, to hell with "impressive lighting"...

It's not an expansion pack. It comes with all new copies of the game.

Basically, it's EA's way of saying "buy the game new".
