Three times the intensity.What’s your weapon of choice?
The Battlefield name means ‘action’ to millions of players worldwide, and Battlefield 3 just ramps up the intensity. How? It’s all about choice.
The sheer number of options available to you on the field of combat is astounding. The four player classes—Assault, Engineer, Support and Recon—each have their specialties, and learning how these work with each other is the key to victory. Like taking the heat? Play Assault, and revive your fallen teammates on the front line. Prefer the distance of a sniper? Take the long view as Recon and neutralize the enemy threat before it appears. However you like to play, there’s something here for you.
Combat on the field of battle is more hectic and visceral than ever, and that’s in large part thanks to the incredible sound design. Near-misses whine by your head, provoking an immediate panic response; the rising drones of approaching aircraft keep you mobile; and the never-ending chatter of gunfire reminds you that you’re in constant jeopardy.
Fortunately, the controls feel as tight and responsive and familiar as you’d expect. It’s nice to know you can rely on them in the face of everything around you falling to chaos. Adding to the fun is your ability to commandeer any vehicle you come across, from tanks and buggies to helicopters and jets. Slam your F/A-18E Super Hornet directly into an enemy combatant! Why not? In this game it’s fun to do whatever you want, just because you can. DICE understands this, and it’s why players keep coming back.
