Battlefield 3 Unveiling Planned for GDC 2011

By Xav de Matos, Jan 11, 2011 6:00am PST When rumblings of a popular EA property appearing at the Spike VGA awards were in full-murmur, many were hoping for a full reveal of the shooter Battlefield 3. Sadly, that's not what happened.

With the dark and snowy past behind us, we look to the future and specifically to GDC 2011 where the publisher has confirmed it will officially reveal DICE's latest title.

On March 1, 2011, during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, EA will host an event for the anticipated game. While Battlefield 3 has yet to come out of its bunker, EA has used the brand for promotion purposes. As an added incentive to purchase Medal of Honor near launch, EA upgraded the initial wave of copies to a "Limited Edition," which included (among other items) exclusive beta access for Battlefield 3

According to IGN, EA also plans to showcase Shadows of the Damned, Alice Madness Returns, Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, and Crysis 2 during the trade show.

  • Lets hope that they fix the chopper issue. Because that low flight ceiling is pretty retarded. Can't even have a chopper battle without having a ground AA gun blow you out of the sky in a few seconds. Bring back commander also, I thought that was an interesting RTS aspect to an FPS game. Calling for supplies, artillery shelling, and vehicle drops added more support for the ground troops. I hated jets in BF2, prolly because I couldn't fly them, but I thought they were a good addition to the game. In BC2, you hear those A-10 warthogs fly by and spit rounds and fly off, now THAT is the kind of effect I'm looking for in BF3 if they decide to add jets into the mix.
