Battlefield 3 – “My Life” trailer shows base jumping

Friday, 15th April 2011 14:03 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

A Battlefield 3 trailer is posted below. It hits around the one minute 32 second mark. Short, but full of gameplay footage featuring jets and base jumping.

DICE is readying another video featuring 12 minutes of gameplay footage, but you will need to “like” the game on Facebook in order to unlock it. As a matter of fact, it needs 1 million “likes”, and as of this post there are 675,135 – so get to liking it here.

If for some reason 1 million “likes” are not accumulated soon, it will be released on Monday, but you don’t really want to wait that long.

Battlefield 3 will be released on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 later in the year, with rumors putting it at retail November 2.

    Show me some in-game footage from multiplayer and they’ll have my attention.

    Did you see that dude running?
    Whoever did the animation and rigging on this is defiantly earning their money.

    give me only THIS game this year and i´m a happy gamer. the number one title i´m waiting for without a question. it will burn hundreds of my gaming hours and i wont have much time left for other games. a freakin addictive game bfbc2 already was/is. this looks like a major improvement over bfbc2 – plus: it´s going back a little to the bf roots…there´s no way this could fail in any way. it´s so preordered…

    Wow, this trailer had the same impact that the launch trailer of Call Of Duty 4 had back in 2007. A change of first person shooters, and this game is looking to be the same.

    Only Battlefield 3 has the upper hand.

    Call Of Duty will have to work its way up like PES needs to do with FIFA in the soccer departement, what is never going to happen.

    Oh God, I’ve not seen anything so epic in a long time. Far too excited for this cannot wait.
    Got goosebumps right through my body at the glimpse of the jets and then that music when the logo appears. SO. FREAKIN. SWEET.

    @21 – Not a chance. You can’t even compare this to COD4 in terms of changing first person shooters.

    All I see is flashy graphics and a few effects. The rest looks fairly generic for a modern warfare game.

    I don’t really know why people get so excited about cinematic trailers with lots of action and explosions. Stuff like that means nothing in a good FPS game. It’s all about online gameplay.

    @23 – You were so close to making a nice opinion then you had to go and say this ‘It’s all about online gameplay.’… unless by online you mean live gameplay throughout and not multiplayer.

    @24 – I mean multiplayer.

    Singleplayer can be fun for a few days, or a week, but really great multiplayer will keep people playing the game for a decade.

    I guess developers throwing FPS titles at the monkey horde annually don’t want a game to be THAT good though.

    Lots of action, big explosions, jets, a cinematic singleplayer campaign and a mediocre “run around like a headless chicken” experience in multiplayer is enough to keep the monkeys amused for a year before the next game comes along.

    To be honest, if BFBC2 is any indication, the single player will be terrible, if nice looking affair. Aside from all the massively scripted stuff shown so far, most of the gameplay has been gunning down AI that just runs forward. The graphics look amazing, but so far the gameplay is just smoke and mirrors.

    @26: That’s your opinion, i loved the singleplayer of BFBC2. Especially when you’d choose to sit down and a random dialog between your comrades would pop up. Talking about Wrestling being real, or the best scene from Predator.

    I didn’t really mind the singleplayer except for all the bugs it had in the release version. It was pretty ridiculous how much of the scripting was borked at that point.

    You’d be hard pressed to deny the CoD worship though.

    “Hop on the flatbed of a truck and shoot stuff on a mountain” – Check
    “Shoot the guy with the RPG” – Check
    “Russian baddie” – Check

    SP in fps is for sissies who can’t play against anything trickier than AI, imo if you play even fps for the story and dialogue then the local library or youtube would be perfect gaming platforms.

    In other words, Half-Life is a bitch game for sissies.

    no, you know what I meant.

    although, why play HL when you can read Orwell?

    #31 4 years ago
  32. DSB

    Because reading Orwell isn’t playing a videogame.

    I don’t see gratuitous MP as any worse than gratuitous SP. The sad thing is that most developers generally insist on adding one or the other, in spite of their focus being on the opposite.

    I’m saying unless you sacrifice gameplay depth and fun for the storytelling, it’s a tiresome experience in my book. you should shoot someone to have a good time, not to go from one point to another just to follow the story. I don’t have to get stress from fighting thru hordes of pigs to see the ending of Animal Farm.

    I’m amazed they still add campaigns in Cod like games.
