WiiU thoughts – Nintendos new console

So WiiU is finally revealed for all of us, even if they only talked about their controller yesterday.

As bullets whiz by, walls crumble, and explosions throw you to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before.

In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding single player missions and competitive multiplayer actions ranging across diverse locations from around the globe including Paris, Tehran and New York

• Frostbite 2 – Battlefield 3 introduces Frostbite 2, the incredible technology that takes animation, destruction, lighting, scale and audio to new heights. Built upon this powerful game engine, Battlefield 3 immerses players physically and emotionally to the world around them like never before.

EDGE is one of the most prestige gaming magazines so we feel really proud of achieving 9/10 from them.

This is a good proof of how great this game really is!

Battlefield 3 confirmed in development

Yes it’s true,
this is the official and only statement I will give about BF3:

“DICE can confirm that Battlefield 3 is currently in development but at this stage we have no further comments to add.”


But even better news is that we had a good playtest on Battlefield 1943 PC today and I am getting a lot of great feedback from my fellow hardcore PC players here at DICE!
