Latest Battlefield 3 trailer has fist fighting, machine guns

— 10:10 AM on March 30, 2011

I can't help watching those Battlefield 3 gameplay trailers with awe. First-person shooters set in present-day conflicts are hardly a new concept, but the more trailers come out, the more DICE's upcoming game looks like it will pull off a unique blend of atmosphere, visual fidelity, and realism. (It doesn't hurt that the title is being designed mainly for the PC, either.) Check out the latest trailer:

The hand-to-hand fighting with quick-time events looks like a nice touch, but clearly, DICE isn't afraid to dabble in large-scale skirmishes or to let the player go Rambo with a fully automatic machine gun. That's a nice change of pace from the first couple of trailers.

Speaking of which... in case you missed them, we posted the first real Battlefield 3 gameplay trailer here, and the second one, which shows a tense sniper fight, can be viewed here on Youtube. (Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the link.)

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
