DICE is hyping up its Battlefield 3 single player campaign with a brand new teaser trailer today. The 50 second video shows off a brand new stage set in Tehran--"Operation Guillotine," a joint operation to "capture key members of the PLR leadership." Even without watching the video, it should be obvious that things get rather... hectic.

In the game's official "Battleblog," lead writer and designer David Goldfarb talked about the new direction DICE wants to go for Battlefield 3's story. "We loved making Battlefield: Bad Company and Bad Company 2. They were great fun, they had their own theme, they were light-hearted," Goldfarb writes. "But with Battlefield 3, we knew we had to really divorce ourselves from those characters and those themes. We had to go somewhere else and do something different and push a different set of buttons. We're telling a war story now, and that means it needs to feel credible, it needs to feel contemporary, and it needs to connect with things and emotions that we have never really tried or had the means to properly connect to before."

The narrative of Battlefield 3 will be, as with many other contemporary military first person shooters, told in a non-linear way. The story is set up through the eyes of US Marines Staff Sgt. Henry "Black" Blackburn, who's being interrogated "about recent world-shaking events" caused by a new threat called the "PLR."

DICE promises to show off more of the single player campaign--specifically Operation Guillotine--next week.

        Seeing as the game is going to be released in little over a month, i doubt there will be a beta

          May not be a beta, but there will certainly be a "beta".

          Thats how all their videos have been though. Even though they are all teasers I don't really feel like watching 20seconds of logos.

      Damn, I love the sound effects in this game. I hope the actual gameplay has the same quality from all these trailers. Fantastic

        Far more intense. I played the alpha, and thought some sounds were coming from the street outside a few times. I put my headphones down to see if there was an accident, or something fell in the next room.

          I was also in the alpha but I'll keep my opinions about it to myself though :(

        The battlefield series has had the best sound out of any game I've ever played since bad company 1. Their sound designer is amazing.

          Yeah it has been good, off subject but have you played killing floor? The weapon sound effects in that game are great too, some of the best

            This isn't about weapon sound effects, but the soundscape as a whole. It sounds VERY realistic, as spyrext mentions, sometimes you're not sure whether it's actually coming from the street or from your PC.

      Knife kills are disturbing to give and receive.

        I bet they will be more disturbing to receive.

        I really like that you have to switch to the knife before you can use it. The instant knife kills are kinda dumb if you ask me.

        I received a knife kill in the alpha that made me leap out of my chair. I turned around and there was a masked man in my face stabbing me repeatedly with anger in his eyes. I peed a little.

      Engine continues to impress. I hope we get some night maps for multiplayer.

      looks a bit better then MW3 but then I'm not sure if it looks 30fps better. Overall I would still say MW3 has the edge.

        Just the animation already knocks the pants off MW3.

          People keep saying that the animation is better but I don't see it. You run, shoot and die, what's better? Ok so BF3 has crawling but that's a bit superficial right?

            None of that has anything to do with animation. Are you sure you're still making the right argument?

        MW3 doesn't have vehicles or destructible environments, or 12v12 play (32v32 on PC). It also actually renders at 720p rather than the 960x520 (or something similar) that MW3 uses in order to hit it's 60 fps target.

        That said, both have different audiences. MW3 is about lightning fast gameplay with lots of kills, BF3 is more methodical and teamplay oriented with large maps that require coordination and tactics.

        So no chance this will be on Steam? Actually happy to wait until it is.. I'm one of the few who played BC2 for the single player, and Black Ops for the offline play with bots. Both were equally awesome.
