EA owned developer DICE has started to feed out some concrete information for Battlefield 3, which is says will be released on PC this autumn.
US mag Game Informer says that the reason for the long wait for the game (Battlefield 2 came out in 2005) is that DICE was waiting until it had a sufficiently advanced game engine in place. With Frostbite now available, it feels that time has come.
"Armed with powerful upgrades like deferred rendering, real-time radiosity, a new animation system borrowed from the EA Sports label, and an exponential leap in destructibility, executive producer Patrick Bach dubs Frostbite 2 'the best piece of technology on the market when it comes to building games'," the mag reads.
To see the first trailer head over to the official Battlefield 3 website.
In addition, DICE has confirmed on its blog that the long awaited PC version of XBLA and PSN hit Battlefield 1943 has now been scrapped.
"We know some of you eagerly have been awaiting Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught on PC," it reads.
"I’m sad to say that these two titles are now officially cancelled. Instead, our talented teams will focus on delivering the greatest possible gaming experience in our next behemoth release. We’re confident this will lead to an even better experience in Battlefield 3, not only on PC, but on all platforms."
