I uploaded it because it was taken down from the original site, plus it keeps getting killed on youtube although you might find it up there again if you prefer to stream it.
 
Highlights:
 
Earthquake rips ground apart.
Building collapses and hits a chopper. 
Prone in effect.  
Disarming a bomb.
Mounted Gun used.
Day/night cycle shown .
Quick montage featuring a player using tanks and jets, a city under attack, artillery and jumping off a mountain.
 
Edit: added a link to the higher quality version. Not a huge difference but a bit better.

Well, it's good at building up the suspense :P I think mediafire is better but whatever man, I'm glad to watch it nonetheless.

 @Metal_Mills:  Dunno if it's because I'm in Norway, but I got about 30 kb/s. Can't wait to see it though - when it's finished in 12 minutes. :p

Cool stuff. Though I'm still too anxious to see more of the multiplayer to get overly excited. Already know the game looks Amazing but right now all I want to see is mutliplayer!
 
Also.. EFF mutliplayer.it for the teasing way they rolled out their logo when the presentation started. I saw "multiplayer" in the corner and went "awesome!" and then saw the ".it" folding in and went all "aaw.. *sad face*"

Very cool.

#11 Posted by buft (3301 posts) -

good job man, been trying to find it all day

#12 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

I don't think that was an earthquake. I think it was an aftershock caused by detonating a nuke underground. Like in Broken Arrow. Remember Broken Arrow? No? Why the hell do I?

#13 Posted by Mistzero (299 posts) -

here you go guys   

#14 Posted by NoCookiesForYou (756 posts) -

Great job Metal Mills, downloading that sweet delicious gameplay vid right now.

#15 Posted by easthill (351 posts) -

Cool shit, but I really don't care about singleplayer stuff. I want to see how the game plays in MP.  
God I hope there's no animation every time you drop a few feet, and every time you mount a machine gun - in multiplayer, that is.

I wonder if I would get in trouble if I uploaded this to my YouTube account... Hmm.

A Battlefield game with weapon models/handling on par with, or possibly better than Call of Duty could rule the world.

I, for one, welcome our old-new Battlefield overlords. 
#23 Posted by Mikewrestler5 (602 posts) -

I can't download it. 
 
Does it look and play as good as what they showed in the official gameplay trailer?

#29 Posted by mikeeegeee (1552 posts) -

As impressed as I was with the gameplay footage, the tech demo at the end blew me away just as much. Holy shit. Realism of effects is mind bottling.

that looked great

#33 Posted by Mahonay (828 posts) -

For those of us with out a gaming rig I wonder how this is going to run on consoles.  Especially the 360.

#34 Posted by LostFlock (81 posts) -

God the game looks so fucking good! I cant wait for this game to come out.

#35 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

the openness of the....umm...battlefield was really suprising. Not a huge shooter fan but compared to Gears or COD, the wide area really seems appealing

#36 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

One for the PC. Looks fucking great.

#37 Posted by ShiftyMagician (2129 posts) -

Even with the lack of quality from the cam, the earthquake (or aftershock) footage looked amazing and the snippets of parts of the game with the airplanes and tanks are enough to continue to remind me to upgrade my computer ASAP.

#38 Posted by Rudeboy217 (1766 posts) -

Now I'm interested.

#39 Posted by FirePrince (1763 posts) -

I hope this will have about the same requirements as Bad Company 2.I really want to run this on high graphical settings.

asap ? no no no my friend u got it all wrong 
you upgrade 1-2 months before BF3 is out, not as soon as possible ! 
 
you'll know the recommended system requirements by then, and the parts will be much cheaper than they are now !

I'm sure they will make it work for everyone. And as long as you don't watch too much PC gameplay footage in high definition the difference of the picture quality won't bother anyone either.. well, if the game is great that is. :)

True, though I am dragging what most would consider an aged computer by now.  The graphics card is ok but a dual core with 2gb ram is not ideal anymore hehehe.  Upgrading to i7 sandy bridges eventually unless there is some new crazy CPU im unaware of, but I don't want to spend crazy amounts on one single part.
#43 Posted by Jayross (2365 posts) -

Hmm... it kinda sucks how the earthquake sequence took place when you were on a turret.

Actually, that whole mounted gun sequence looked weak. Seriously, mounted guns suck :/

#44 Posted by Nightlight (56 posts) -

Game looks awesome! thanks god I built a new PC not to long ago

#45 Edited by Mikemcn (6955 posts) -

Those guns have zero recoil. Prone confirmed though. Also at one point a group of soldiers jump off a snow covered mountain to escape what i can only assume to be an explosion. I really wish they'd stop showing off their generic as all hell singleplayer, WHERES THE IMPORTANT PART DICE?

#46 Posted by withateethuh (726 posts) -
@Mikemcn: The recoil is probably lower for single player in general.

 I don't think it's an earthquake neither as an earthquake produces a tremor in a generalized area that everyone feels at the same time in that specific area, same goes for an aftershock from an earthquake. Here you see a shockwave coming from the building direction going towards you and it looks more like it comes from an underground nuclear detonation. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

They're going to release this as trailers throughout the next month anyway.
