The Nuts And Bolts Of Frostbite 2

Does really well done particle lighting brighten your day? Does High Dynamic Range imaging float your boat? Does Dynamic Radiosity really get your engine going? Well, then you're in luck because the fine folks at the Battlefield Blog have uploaded a series of in-depth videos discussing the new Frostbite 2 engine.

The hour-long technical presentation is broken up into five videos all conveniently available on the Battlefield Blog. It's a thorough look at both the engines powering DICE's previous projects and their aims for the future in creating this new engine. It explains in very technical detail the processes used to bring the battlefield to life.

Running concurrently with gamescom and also held on Cologne, Evoke is the largest annual demo-party in Germany where non-interactive, real-time computer audio-visual presentations compete for top honors. Bucking the theme slightly, DICE Senior Artist Kenny Magnusson made a special appearance at Evoke this year to demonstrate the new Frostbite 2 engine that powers Battlefield 3.

Battlefield 3 is the upcoming first-person shooter from EA DICE that combines intense infantry combat with a wide range of vehicles on sprawling maps filled with destructible environments. The latest entry in the critically acclaimed franchise, Battlefield 3 will be released October 25th.

Pre-order your copy of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition on Origin today and receive early access to the open beta in September and other awesome exclusives.

    You know, this game would be a lot better if EA hadn't completely screwed with it. First, they are trash talking Activision and Modern Warfare 3. Then, they don't allow it on Origin. Now, we find out that EA can learn all about our computer with Origin, and if we know EA, they'll sell it to other people. THAT'S ARE F@#$&% PERSONAL INFO, AND SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!!!!!!! They'll probably be forcing second hand buyers to pay for online passes and all that crap. What happened to you, EA? YOU SUCK!!!!!!
