Electronic Arts has released the official Battlefield 3 box art and we have to say it’s not surprising and pretty much follows the exact artwork we’ve witnessed before in Bad Company 2 and previous game promotions.
Wow, looks awfully familiar...
. No surprise there. That is what EA is all about these days. Find a franchise that is successful and here comes EA saying they are better by coping them. They really are trying to drown out any information about COD BUT here's the thing, Activision hasn't shown a single thing yet. E3 will be the official unveiling and never underestimate Activision. Still waiting for some console game play. They keep talking about how much better their game engine is and then show some high end PC footage. Crytek always showed off the console version but not many believe them including myself. I've played and completed Crysis 2 and it looks and plays just the way they demoed it. They made a believer out of me. Now, lets see if Dice can do the same.
I believe their game engine is better because it has a lot of destruction, while maintaining larger maps, and graphics that are slightly better, or near par with Call of Duty. (IMO)
Shows how much you know. Have you even played any of the previous BATTLEFIELD games? I can tell you're a new school gamer.
My first Battlefield game was Bad Company 2, I have the Platinum Trophy for it, and I have been gaming since Atari era. So, no I am not a "new school gamer" I am a gamer that just stated his opinion. So I take it you think Call of Duty's game engine is better than Battlefields, thats cool. I just feel with what Dice was able to do (with destruction, map size, player size, and aesthetics) was more impressive than what Treyarch and Infinity Ward was able to do with their game engine. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warefare was the first game I played on my PS3, and I played that pretty extensively, but I didn't buy any of the others because I didn't like the casual direction it started to go. Not to say that Battlefield titles don't have a sense of casualness, its just that I like the squad mentality, and the way the maps were designed better.
@InTheKnow http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://images.wikia.com/bat... look at the box art yah now GTFO
i like the way the PC version is standing there in the middle like a boss!
What the fuck are you even talking about? It's not even EA that make this game, nor is it EA that produced the artwork. Get fucking clue before talking bollocks, will ye.
I've had this picture set as my wallpaper for a while now. I love the colour scheme
@InTheknow Dude u need to stop trolling on every BF3 article that pops up on this site. If your precious MW3 is as great as you make it out to be, it doesn't need you going around attempting (and failing) to point out why it's so much better. As far as graphics and the cod series goes, DICE has nothing to prove on consoles as even bfbc2 looked better considering how much bigger the maps were + destruction was gong on. The lead platform is PC that's why they are showing that. Crysis 2 was developed on consoles first which is why they showed that footage.
I would have substituted the "E" in Battlefield with 3's. Would have been kinda cool!
For people that don't know, its the same exact pose they used for bfbc2. I don't remember people complaining back then of it copying MW2 so why is this any different? Also please don't show your immature young age and act like MW2 was the first game to feature a soldier walking with gun in hand on the cover.
In my opinion it is copying Operation Wolf from my ZX spectrum... I am disgusted! http://www.worldofspectrum....
@Kurt Russell lolz
The battlefield art since Bad company, has gotten lame, Its an obvious rip of from the COD4/MW2 box art. The guy it holding the gun in the same hand walking the same way with stuff going on behind him... And I know what im talking about, I have a 5 foot poster of MW2 sitting next to me.
yeah. DICE decided to innovate in the hard part and rip off activision in the artwork. bunch of thieves /s
Yeah next thing you know they're gunna copy the controls from COD. The right trigger better not fire my gun or so help me...
Lame cover for another lame generic Arcade Shooter! whoop de doo!
this isnt call of duty.
Not arguing or anything, but what'd you suggest as the cover for "another lame generic Arcade Shooter!"
Lame comment of another lame troll.
Thought we knew this? Unless it wasn't official until now. Either way its decent, and won't affect my purchase 8-)
Not that I dislike this .... but they used the same style for Bad company 2....and the vietnam DLC. Wont stop me from getting the game but a different style to separate it from there other FPS would have been welcomed!
I think the boxart was already revealed a week ago. Why does it get approved as news while it is old. On topic: I think the whole new way of the Battlefield boxart's are neat. And ofcourse Call Of Duty has that too but Battlefield 2 started it, which KanserBob showed already. Modern Warfare changed it by placing the number of the iteration after the title of the game. Why even care who was first. The boxart is fresh and looks very good in my opinion, you also know that the whole flame thing represents the newer iterations of the Battlefield series. Go DICE.
Look at all the attachments and shit on his gun. I know you couldn't attach a silencer on an assault rifle in BC2, or a visible foregrip, so there's and indication that the customization will be INSANE! The helicopters look like they have lights, so will they play a bigger role during nighttime levels? Hmmmmmm........ And the fact that there are jets there is awesome. I'm a Bad Company 2 convert, so I've never had the privilege to play with the jets, so I'm in awe. BTW, what the hell type of tank is that to his right? With wheels like that you can be sure it goes a helluva lot faster than a normal tank, yet it still has a cannon. THAT thing looks invincible. Speed AND Power? Shit, IM HYPED!!!!
That tank is a Stryker. It's pretty bad ass! :) The base model has just a standard Browning M2 Machine gun, but you can equip it with 105mm Cannon. It's technically called the M1128 Mobile Gun System. Here's a link if you wanna read up on it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Holy shit didn't know that thing was real! THANKS!
I guess it's the new DICE style cause it's the same as BC2. All in all it's just an updated version of BF2. Besides with DD most will never see the box. so who cares but since i have a retail version of BF2 and BC2 i might as well keep the tradition going so retail and DD again.
I was really hoping this wouldn't be the official box art but oh well... I'm ready for the beta!
Could be better, and it sure as hell could be worse.
Saw this ages ago on an article ages ago -.-
Typical box art for a FPS game. Soldier walking while carrying a weapon with vehicles surrounding them. Usually with explosions in the background.
I like it. It does seem like the same as BC2, just darker and things are placed different. I hope this games turns out to be better than BC2, which was epic! Vietnam FTW!
Idk about the boxart as long as the ingredients are right. And they seem to be really great.
