Battlefield 3 Release Date Announced

Battlefield 3 is launching this fall, on October 25th. The battle rages on, and this installment promises to deliver the most epic, realistic, intense combat experience to date.

The unique power of Battlefield 3’s Frostbite 2 engine advances state of the art technology with superior performance in character animation, visual rendering, audio, sound, and the physical destruction the series is known and loved for. Battlefield 3 captures the intense reality of modern combat across the globe like nothing else out there.

In the words of Executive Producer Patrick Bach, “like so many gamers out there, we’ve had some pretty wild ideas about what we’d want to see in a shooter. Until now, it was all just fantasy. But with Frostbite 2, even our most far-reaching ideas are becoming a reality. This is the game we’ve always wanted to create.”

Pre-order the Battlefield 3 Limited Edition now and receive the Back to Karkand digital expansion at no extra charge. Battlefield 3 will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC this fall.
