In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite US Marines. As the first boots on the ground, players will experience heart-pounding missions across diverse locations including Paris, Tehran, and New York. As a US Marine in the field, periods of tension and anticipation are punctuated by moments of complete chaos. As bullets whiz by, as walls crumble, as explosions force players to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before.
Battlefield 3’s new technology allows you to experience superior animation, unparalleled lighting and special effects, epic scale and incredible sound design. With support for AMD Eyefinity and DirectX® 11, Battlefield 3 leaps ahead of its time with the power of Frostbite 2, DICE's new cutting-edge game engine. This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and character animation utilizing ANT technology as seen in the latest EA SPORTS games.
The DICE team set out to bring animation to the next level. ANT technology lets them create more believable behavior than ever seen before in shooters. Simply put, in Battlefield 3 you will be able to engage in some of the largest maps ever created. 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. Frostbite 2 now enables deferred shading, dynamic global illumination and new streaming architecture. Play the game and experience the difference! 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.
