    Yeah I decided last night that I'll be doing a full new build closer to the end of the year. Skyrim and BF3... I don't think my trusty old Q6600 will fare too well with all the bells and whistles :p

    Some in game footage:

    YouTube - Battlefield 3 Premiere Gameplay Trailer

    I still think that hotel @ 22 seconds looks like the hotel from Jalalalalalalalalbad.
    This game looks very good indeed...

    Edit: I just watched this video for the 10th time. My god it looks good. I have just pre-ordered on the strenght of this clip. Anyone else pre-ordered yet?

    Edit edit: After watching again, I think that map they show in the clip is Karkand....

    I pre-ordered on the day they announced pre-orders were available :)

    It looks really good - and going by that video are we gonna be able to have punching contests instead of knifing ones :)

    No way it's going to look that good, I don't believe it. Please, Please let me be wrong.

    That'll all be in-game footage, not pre-rendered.

    Yep, all in game footage. It was confirmed by almost all of the devs. If they can get it to look that good on console (heck, even half that good), then the system specs for PC should be pretty reasonable.

    may have already been posted but

    Dice community manager Daniel Matros has mentioned on the Battlefield 3 forums that the Back to Karkand DLC Pack (Free on Launch Day with In-Box Code) will have four old Battlefield maps redesigned for the Frostbite 2.0 engine.
    Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula will all be returning in Battlefield 3.
    When Matros was asked if all of the retro maps will be returning to the game he declined to “comment on any of that at the moment” – so there might be a small chance that these are just the first of the classic maps making their return to Battlefield.

    I hope this isn't so they can slack off on offering new content - then selling it to us a month or two down the track as DLC. Call me a cynic... :rolleyes:
