Teaser trailer reveals first glimpse of Battlefield 3

We have been waiting a very long time for this, but it seems that Battlefield 3 may finally be within our collective grasp!

In a move that’s becoming all-too-frequent these days, the first official teaser trailer for the game was apparently “leaked” onto YouTube even before the EA-branded website went live.

Battlefield 3 allows you to feel the full impact of battle like never before. Powered by Frostbite 2, the next generation of DICE’s cutting-edge gaming engine, Battlefield 3 delivers spectacular visuals, earth-shattering destruction and real as hell combat gameplay providing a dramatic immersive First Person Shooter experience. One moment you may be marching down a hilltop listening to the hypnotic sound of a firefight in the distance or admiring the way the light reflects off the smoke plumes of ground to air missiles rising from the city you’re about to engage. The next you’re on an urban street, surrounded, claustrophobic, fighting for your life and looking eight ways at once with all your senses on high alert, chilled at the knowledge that the building you’re hiding behind can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Welcome to Battlefield 3.

We also hear that the game will feature 64-player multiplayer on PC, plus your beloved jets and the ability to go prone.

Battlefield 3 has a release window of “Fall 2011”, so fingers crossed we’ll see this one by the end of the year (is anyone really holding their breath, though?). Head to http://www.ea.com/battlefield3/ for a teeny bit more information. We should also learn more about the game at this year’s GDC, when it’s expected to be revealed in more depth.
