The Xbox LIVE Marketplace is having a huge sale on EA games, many of which support some form of cooperative play. I know some of you think EA is an all-powerful, nightmarish entity that usually passes time by eating children and kicking puppies, but when the publishing juggernaut is not being evil it happens to put out some pretty cool games.
Battlefiled 4 has been confirmed by Electronic Arts in a video on the official Medal of Honor website. In true EA fashion, customers who pre order Medal of Honor: Warfighter will receive access to the Battlefield 4 beta. The beta is scheduled for the fall of 2013 with more details trickling out in the next twelve months.
More news is storming the internet today as E3 2012 progresses. We've got details from EA's press conference regarding a premium service for Battlefield 3. Previous rumors have been confirmed: Battlefield 3 Premium is a DLC bundle, similar to Gears of War 3's Season Pass. In essence, by paying up front for all five pieces of DLC, Premium members will save $25 and have access to content two weeks before anyone else. Other perks include exclusive items like an ACB-90 knife and unique dogtags. Sounds like a great deal for fans of EA's flagship shooter.
Good Co-Op, Bad Co-Op - a tale of two friends who love playing games together. The man who gives the best upsidedown hugs, Sunflower4000 and the love wizard Locke have put their differences aside and teamed up cooperatively in a battle against fate.
So it might not be real gameplay footage, but Freddie Wong of YouTube fame is back with another great gaming related video. This time it's his take on the Battlefield franchise - and I don't mean this take. Titled Battlefield 4 Co-Op the video looks at a pair of soldiers working together to take down some enemy combatants. There's some slick nods to things you'd only see in Battlefield games and the audio and look of the video is pretty spot on.
Battlefield 3 is out! I bet you didn't know that. You did? Oh, well did you want a copy for your PlayStation 3? Good - because we're giving one of those away. Perhaps you read our co-op review or our co-op FAQ on the game and now it's all you can think about. You dream of piloting an attack helicopter with your best friend. You want to complete sniper missions with grandma. And the only way you'll get through a work day is by checking Battlelog every 15 minutes to see how your platoon's K/D ratio is doing.
Battlefield 3 is here and with it comes a two player online co-op mode. Our latest in our FAQ series lays out some common questions you might have for the military shooter. If you are looking for our review you can find that over here.
The greatest war represented on video game consoles this generation is not set in World War 2, modern times, or even the future - it’s the war between the Call of Duty franchise and everyone else. EA has tried once before to settle the score, taking CoD head on with their Medal of Honor franchise with little effect. The latest attack has come in the form of Battlefield 3, a franchise who’s roots are in the PC but found new life with the Bad Company series on consoles. Battlefield 3 spans both PC and console and is definitely EA’s answer to Call of Duty, but does the focus on this war cost Battlefield 3 what has defined the series?
Did you stay up to the wee hours of the morning waiting to unlock Battlefield 3? If not, now is a good time to remind you that you'll want to update your graphics drivers on your PC for the game. Both AMD and NVIDIA have released optimized versions of their drivers for DICE's Frostbite 2 engine. I put a solid 3 hours into the campaign last night on my PC armed with a GeForce GTX 580 on all Ultra settings and the latest drivers. The game is drop dead gorgeous for sure and makes serious use of lighting effects with some really slick texture details.
Don't blink. Not even for a second. You might miss the transition in the latest TV trailer for Battlefield 3 which seamlessly blends real world warfare action with scenes from the game. Can you tell the difference?
As we previously reported, the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3 will include an optional hi-res texture installation. The installation is necessary because the game’s textures are quite large, and hard drives can stream data much faster than DVD drives. Why make it optional then? Because not every 360 owner has a hard drive, of course. That's common knowledge by now, but new details have started to pour in.
Launch trailers are all the rage these days, it's a publisher one final attempt to make you say - "Man...I probably should pre-order this." EA has just put out their launch trailer for Battlefield 3 and I think it serves its purpose quite well. We've got drama, we've got emotion, we've got tension, and we've got plenty of explosions and guitar riffs. Cha-Ching.
While we already knew that Battlefield 3 on the Xbox 360 would require two discs, one for Single Player and one for Co-Op and Multiplayer, we didn't know that the second disc would also contain a small bonus for Xbox 360 owners.
While the Battlefield 3 beta won't contain any co-op, it is a good chance to get a feel for the game and check out the Battle Log online system. The multiplayer beta for Battlefield 3 kicks off tomorrow on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and while the former two won't require any manual intervention to run other than downloading it, you might want to get your PC in shape today by updating your drivers.
Battlefield 3 is just over a month away and the multiplayer versus beta is kicking off in just days on September 29th, so our cravings for the DICE developed title grow with each passing day. While I managed to get a tease of the game's co-op mode at PAX last month, the small snippet left a lot to the imagination as to just how the co-op mode will play out. Today though, new information has been revealed describing what players will be experiencing in the two player online cooperative mode.
