IGN got word...

 
...that EA will officially unveil Battlefield 3 at GDC 2011 on the first of March.
 
Good news everyone. Battlefield's finally gonna drop trousers and show its junk to the world! No doubt it's gonna be a big fucking gun! Looking forward to see Frostbite 2.0 in action.

Wont matter.  DICE doesn't care about PC users...despite PC users doing all the work for Vietnam.  :|

Didn't they use Frostbite 2.0 for BC2?

I'm hoping for something mind blowing. This is Battlefield 3, not Bad Company 3. I'm still disappointed it's not a PC exclusive, and i'm not even a big pc gamer. I totally understand why it's coming to consoles though.

Pie, you wanna bet BF2 isn't going to have 64 at a minimum, jets, and the commander commands?  :|   
 
If we follow what DICE said about BC2 for PC being built as it's own, then I am not excited...hell PC didn't even get BF1943.  DICE cares more about the 360 and PS3 than the PC, and that is a fact.

Nay. That was Frostbite 1.5. Frostbite 2.0 is fully optimized for DX11, thus BF3 on PC won't support DX9 and Windows XP and will greatly profit from running a 64bit Windows 7 and a DX11 card. The German PC Mag 'Gamestar' did a special about Frostbite 2.0 recently. Sounds mighty impressive to me.
 
Here's a google translation of their feature.

So on March 1st I will decide between Red Orchestra 2 and Battlefield 3 I guess.

Damn, can't wait for more info on that. Here's to hoping that it'll have more in common with BF2 or 2142 than the Bad Company series.

Oh Battlefield 3. So excited for this.

Here's hoping it isn't just BC in disguise.

If this isn't like Battlefield 2 i'm going to DICE's headquarters and blowing it up.

This is going to be interesting. I might build a new PC based on the specs of this.

This is the one game that can get me to want a gaming PC.  
 
 
Also, why announce anything at GDC? Who follows that, other than the really hardcore?

who knows it could look amazing

This makes me sad I haven't upgraded my PC in 5 years, the last time a PC Battlefield came out.

Another Battlefield is always a reason to be excited. Hopefully it will be a true sequel to BF2 (not that I didn't like Bad Company 2)

I heard this game will have next-gen technology that lets you go prone.  

#22 Posted by Jayross (2647 posts) -

They have been hyping up the game quite a bit on the dev's twitter accounts...
