Fans of PC shooters will know the Battlefield name and we also know that the next installment of the franchise, Battlefield 3 has been in development for a long time. EA and DICE haven't really said much about the long development cycle and all I can say is that the game had better be good after the long wait.
The first official trailer for the game has surfaced and NVIDIA has the video over on the GeForce site for you to check out. Keep in mind the video is just a teaser and as such, everything is hazy and you can't really make out much detail. What you can see looks realistic.
The game will land this fall and has some cool tech to make it look more realistic called Frostbite 2.0. EA describes the game like this, "One moment you may be marching down a hilltop listening to the hypnotic sound of a firefight in the distance or admiring the way the light reflects off the smoke plumes of ground to air missiles rising from the city you're about to engage. The next you're on an urban street, surrounded, claustrophobic, fighting for your life and looking eight ways at once with all your senses on high alert."
