Good news for those that wanted to give Battlefield 3 a go but couldn’t afford to do so as Electronic Arts is currently offering DICE’s FPS for free on Origin. This offer lasts until June 3rd, so make sure to visit Origin and download the game as soon as possible.
Battlefield 3 is powered by Frostbite 2 engine and aimed to capture the intense reality of modern warfare across the globe. Players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines and experience heart-pounding missions across diverse locations including Paris, Tehran and New York. As a U.S. Marine in the field, periods of tension and anticipation are punctuated by moments of complete chaos. As bullets whiz by, as walls crumble, as explosions force players to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before.
In single-player, multiplayer and co-op, Battlefield 3 is described as a near-future war game depicting international conflicts spanning land, sea and air. Players are dropped into the heart of the combat whether it occurs on dense city streets where they must fight in close quarters or in wide open rural locations that require long range tactics.
Battlefield 3 was criticized for not offering the same destructibility as Battlefield: Bad Company 2. In addition, a lot of fans felt that the MP maps were not up to the standards set by Bad Company 2.
