    Multiplayer fact sheet

    Armed with the new Frostbite™ 2 game engine and more than a decade of multiplayer expertise, the award-winning team at DICE is set to deliver their biggest and most accessible First Person Shooter (FPS) ever this October with Battlefield 3.

    Frostbite 2 advances the state of the art, and serves as the power center that allows Battlefield 3 to deliver superior performance in character animation, visual rendering, audio and physical destruction. Battlefield 3 is the only FPS in the marketplace using Frostbite 2, and the only shooter capable of making the gameplay experience feel alive with all the sights, sounds and action of real-world incursions.

    The new engine allows for massive multiplayer maps that move seamlessly between tight infantry combat to the series' signature open, sandbox vehicle warfare. Each map features a variety of environments demanding players to constantly re-evaluate the best combat tactics to deploy in order to win.

    Battlefield 3's multiplayer offering is set to dominate this fall with enhanced persistence, new modes including Team Deathmatch and co-op, accessible team play and powerful and free online social features found via the games unique social network, Battlelog.

    Play Your Way In the Biggest Battlefield Ever! From city streets to open rural landscapes, Battlefield 3 offers unparalleled depth and gameplay variety. Classic 'Rush' and 'Conquest' modes are complemented by newly introduced 'Team Death Match' for an instant action fix.

    Extensive Co-op Campaign: Unique maps and missions are available for players to tackle online with a friend, using co-op specific gameplay features. Co-op missions tie into the single player story.

    Powerful Social Features in Battlelog: Players will never go into battle alone thanks to the powerful new community features of Battlelog. Players can build their platoon, communicate with other gamers, and compare their multiplayer prowess with friends and foes alike. Battlelog is free on all platforms.

    Frostbite 2-Enabled Destruction: Frostbite 2 creates a whole new level of life-like destruction. Enhanced large and small scale destruction now has a tactical purpose. Chip away at cover, blow holes in walls, deform the terrain, and bring down entire building façades on enemies.

    Ultimate Vehicle Warfare: The signature Battlefield vehicle warfare experience is even richer and more rewarding. Damaged vehicles can now retreat or be defended until they automatically regain armor, while disabled vehicles become static gun platforms to cover players doing repairs.

    Accessible Team-Play: Battlefield 3 offers fine-tuned team-play possibilities and accessibility for newcomers. Team-play is key for players to reach dominance on the battlefield.

    Personalized Dog Tags: Players can express their individuality with their own dog tag that gets displayed to defeated enemies. Players choose a design with a dynamically tracked in-game stat that expresses their personality and play-style.

    The Physical Battlefield: Use the environment to your advantage. Deploy your machine gun bipods on any mountable surface for greater accuracy. Claim the dog tag of enemies via skillful knife takedowns. Lay down suppressive fire to limit the combat capabilities of enemies.

    Enhanced Persistence: There is always a new rank or reward to unlock in Battlefield 3. The depth and vast range of unlockable weapons, vehicles, upgrades, and tools will keep Battlefield 3 players occupied for years to come.

    Not exactly sure, I would assume the email route. Thats how they have always done in the past with betas and also that how I got my code for the PC alpha for BF3 earlier.

    Time for us to make new friends. Mason will get it and play it for a week or two, then get pissed about it and leave it. Most of the other knuckleheads will probably get MW3 instead

    ?? Confused..................................................with that said, open beta tomorrow and I cant wait. Sucks that the only board that will be in the beta is one without vehicles. The vehicles are what I am looking forward to the most. I can only hope and pray that they have an "Oasis type" board in this one. Still one of my favorite maps of any game all time.
