Battlefield 3 will launch October 25th, but gamers will be able to get access to the multiplayer beta from September. The game will also be featuring community features with Battlelog.
“We are proud to finally open the curtains and reveal Battlefield 3. The core development team has been together since 2005. We’ve grown together, taken some knocks together and now, we’re ready to take first person shooters to a whole new level, together,” said Patrick Bach, Executive Producer. “Like so many gamers out there, we’ve had some pretty wild ideas about what we’d want to see in a shooter. Until now, it was all just fantasy. But with Frostbite 2, even our most far-reaching ideas are becoming a reality. This is the game we’ve always wanted to create.”
The Battlelog service, which will allow players to track their stats and friends in a similar manner to NFS’s Autolog, will be offered for free – a point made in obvious reference to Activision’s premium Call of Duty: Elite service.
