The last few Battlefield 3 trailers are impressive and all, but they're all fairly short, only revealing snapshots of in-game action. That's changed with EA DICE's latest official video, which shows a little under 12 minutes of gameplay... and ties some of the already-released snapshots together into a single, continuous progression:
The game still looks gorgeous, and I'm still very fond of the alternation between quiet, immersive moments and heavy action. That's a nice change of pace from the Call of Duty series and their ilk, which sacrifice atmosphere and immersion for constant running and gunning.
In related news, Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports that Battlefield 3 developer EA DICE has once again confirmed its PC-centric development strategy for this title. "Instead of developing it for the consoles and then just adding higher resolution textures and anti-aliasing for the PC version. . . . We're do it [sic] the other way around, we start with the highest-end technology that we can come up with and then scale it back to the consoles," said the game's executive producer.
