With E3 only a few days away, Battlefield developer Digital Illusions CE (DICE), has announced on the Battlefield blog that the final touches are being added on the Battlefield 3 and that they plan on showcasing both the Battlefield 3 single player and multiplayer modes of gameplay at E3.

The Battlefield blog reveals only a wee bit of info on the multiplayer:

Quote
"Powered by the Frostbite 2 engine, Battlefield 3 features some of the biggest and most spectacular maps that we have built. At the same time, we are also able to create more intense close-quarter combat than ever before. The multiplayer map, “Operation Métro,” available for press to play on the show floor, combines both sides of the scale into one cohesive experience. Gamers will experience a physical battlefield and be able to temporarily disable vehicles, go prone, mount weapons, lay down suppressive fire and more," writes DICE General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson.


But they're not giving it all away at E3. The latest addition to the series will have a new Team Death Match mode and the Battlefield 3 Battlelog. The Battlelog is the social networking aspect of the multiplayer as it has feeds, friends lists, player stats, and voice chat. "Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)... zero dollars" according to Troedsson, perhaps a jab towards Activision's new Call of Duty Elite service.

Somehow, DICE has managed to make E3 2011, which already seems like its going to be the biggest one yet, even harder to wait for.

I can't wait to see this at E3, and one thing I think is great, is that they will offer a COD Elite like service, for the monthly fee of nothing! Cheesy
I'm very excited about Battlefield 3!

"Of course there are things we will not be showing at E3, including the game’s extensive co-op campaign, the introduction of Team Death Match mode and the Battlefield 3 Battlelog web destination – featuring powerful social tools, feeds and detailed player stats. Battlelog also lets you manage your friends lists, squad up, create platoons, use voice chat and follow your friends’ progress in real-time, and more. Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)... zero dollars. We look forward to providing more information on these features in the near future!"

Total win.

CoD will sell more, but BF3 will be the better game. Sad world we live in, BF3 has a good following on the PC, but CoD has a following on the Consoles as well as on the PC and most are kids.

Lets face it, if people boil it down to the level of sales then BF3 will lose, but if they look at quality of games, BF3 will be the winner, take BC2 and Black Ops for example. Black Ops/MW2 sold more, but BC2 was the better game and was played more and was appreciated more.
