Six years had passed since Battlefield 2 and the first-person warfare landscape has changed quite a bit since then. After the success of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, a litany of clones featuring linear gameplay and set piece driven narrative flooded the market. Understandably, the Call of Duty formula for warfare FPS is effective but to be honest, it is getting to be quite stale and it is the perfect time for a true sequel to the Battlefield franchise to make its return.

While computers now are significantly more powerful than the gaming PCs of 2005, video game console hardware remains stagnant. Going against the grain, DICE developed Battlefield 3 specifically for PCs and scaled down the console versions unlike all other games which are aimed for console gamers primarily then ported to PC market as an afterthought. The result: breathtaking vistas and gigantic large-scale maps never been seen before in a first-person shooter game.

 

Battlefield 3 is the latest installment in the franchise, powered by a new Frostbite engine. Unlike other modern warfare shooters, Battlefield 3 boasts bone-crushing physics effects and an emphasis on team-work when it comes to multiplayer gaming. Much like its predecessors, Battlefield 3 gives players the opportunity to launch into the battlefield on foot, on a tank, on a jet, or any of the twenty other vehicles parked on the map. Paired with the latest in DirectX11 technology, players can enjoy highly detailed large-scale outdoor maps unlike anything ever seen in a video game. Battlefield 3 is the one of a kind gaming experience that PC gamers have been asking for and rightly deserve.
