Battlefield 3 will invade retail stores in North America on October 25, 2011 and in Europe on October 28, 2011, Electronic Arts has announced.
September will also see an open multi-platform multiplayer beta for the upcoming first-person shooter.
“We are proud to finally open the curtains and reveal Battlefield 3. The core development team has been together since 2005. We’ve grown together, taken some knocks together and now, we’re ready to take first person shooters to a whole new level, together,” said Patrick Bach, Executive Producer. “Like so many gamers out there, we’ve had some pretty wild ideas about what we’d want to see in a shooter. Until now, it was all just fantasy. But with Frostbite 2, even our most far-reaching ideas are becoming a reality. This is the game we’ve always wanted to create.”
Developed by DICE with Frostbite Engine 2.0, the sequel to 2005’s Battlefield 2 will release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Check out two new trailers below.
