Electronic Arts and DICE have released a teaser trailer showing for the first time some gameplay footage of Battlefield 3, and it looks pretty darned sweet.

They stalled "Mirror's Edge 2" for this? I am sick and tired of all games with "War on Terror" theme. Dammit DICE, give us "Mirror's Edge 2" NOW!!!

No they did not stall Mirror's Edge 2 for this...they stalled it because they were disappointed with it. They chose to stall it to make a proper game instead of making a poor game which would have earned them some money, but killed the game and the name

i think the pc version will be special especially with direct x11 supports & 64 players online too...

They canned "BF 1943" and the new mode for "BF:BC 2" for this, not "ME 2".
Well if you blinked, you'd have missed...not much at all. I'm still not tempted to pre-order, much as EA is pushing me to as I have bad memories of the "BF 2" release day blues (what a mess).

Looks pretty sweet. It'll kick Black Ops ass, thats for sure!

Let it come, sweet GFX.. but that can be CGI and not gameplay.. easily trap to make us think it is awesome sometimes..

Well, they did that with "MoH" footage...and it worked.

Did anyone actually SEE gameplay in that?
I saw some flashes of what might have been the gameplay quickly blotted out by annoying "interference".

Very bad trailer if you ask me.

It's all in-game graphics, folks. There's no CGI in that trailer. What you see in the trailer is the actual gameplay.

@SirRoderick: That is why it's called a 'teaser' trailer. The idea being to tease the viewer with snippits, without fulling revealing the game in all it's glory, which is saved for a full trailer which you'll see on March 1st.. ;)

Personally, I think this trailer is awesome, it shows some very attractive visuals, nice animations, and what appears to be a rather exciting campaign. Of course, short trailers like this can easily be deceiving, but there's no reason to assume the worst, as everything so far has looked very nice and lets face it, DICE have a fairly impressive record with Battlefield games.

BF 3 starts to look really impressive - there is a great article in Swedish PC gamer this month. The only thing I'm getting bugged about is EA - I mean they openly anounce that they milked some of their IP's to death - but they continue to do so? Dragon Age 2 is for me a riddleed love hate affair already. the game isn't even out and yet there are 5 pre-order campaigns, therre are several DLC minis from buying other EA games, they have an in-game store and in gameplay store for DLC items - they skip the mod tool and they are b**ching on Facebook and Twitter about all their campaigns, pre-order this and get this for that. Enough already - release games - not Swiss cheese and I may continue to buy your games EA.

Man, even Ubisoft ahs understood that you need to listen to you consumers...
