The last Battlefield game came out in 2005. And no, Bad Company does not count. Game Informer has the skinny on Battlefield 3 with some exclusive stuff including some great cover art for their next issue. There is a new trailer and some great stuff that Dice will be doing with their new Frostbite 2 Engine. I’m just wondering if this will have the mass appeal that will draw Call of Duty fans away from their precious and try out something new.
I have high hopes, believe me I do. But do we really need another military style shooter. I look forward to new FPS just as much as the next guy, but I am getting a little tired of the “standard” type of shooter. The types of shooters I am looking forward to are the likes of Bioshock Infinite, BulletStorm, Killzone 3 and First Person Shooters that give something a little different than the standard military shooter, special sauce. Plasmids, Jetpacks and Leashes seems a little more interesting to me than claymores, C4 or a Russian dictator who wants to kill all the kittens in the world. Anyway, here’s to truly hoping Battlefield 3 will rock.
