Heroism on this battlefield is not about making an all-out adrenaline rush toward glory. It's about steel-eyed determination in combat designed to be chaotic, dizzying, and completely unnerving. Battlefield 3 is built on the Frostbite 2 game engine, which creates an incredibly lifelike world and pushes it to the quivering edge. Calm - and everything else for that matter - can be shattered at any moment. Keep your wits about you on realistic missions that demand precision in the face of chaos. Lead a squad of U.S. Marines through urban hotspots in Europe, North America, and the Middle East or go online and see if you can survive 24-soldier multiplayer.
The Frostbite 2 Game Engine - Battlefield 3 introduces Frostbite 2, the incredible technology that takes animation, destruction, lighting, scale and audio to new heights. Built upon this powerful game engine, Battlefield 3 immerses players physically and emotionally to the world around them like never before.
Feel the Battle - Feel the impact of bullets and explosions, drag your fallen comrades into safety, and mount your weapon on almost any part of the terrain. Cutting edge animation, spectacular visuals, and realistic battle gameplay attack your senses and make you feel the visceral warriors experience like no other FPS.
Unparalleled Vehicle Warfare - The best online vehicle warfare experience gets even better with a fitting sonic boom as fighter jets headline along with an impressive lineup of land, air and sea vehicles, all at your command.
Urban Combat - Take the fight to iconic and unexpected places in the USA, Middle East, and Europe including claustrophobic streets, metropolitan downtowns, and open, vehicle-friendly landscapes as you fight your way through the war of tomorrow.
Multiplayer Mayhem - Experience gripping multiplayer action with 2-24 player battles supported online.
Amazing Animation - The DICE team set out to takes animation to the next level with ANT technology (previously used in FIFA games) that now allows the creation of more believable behavior than ever before in an FPS.
Fight to Scale - Simply put, in Battlefield 3 you will be able to engage across some of the largest maps ever created, while close quarter combat is available too.
Massive Destruction - Destruction is enhanced on both a macro and micro level. Chips fly off blocks of concrete used for cover, while whole facades and buildings collapse in screeching clouds of dust and debris.
Best-in-Class Audio - Building on acclaimed High Dynamic Range (HDR) audio from previous Battlefield games, Battlefield 3 builds on the best-in-class legacy with a brutally realistic soundscape.
