Battlefield 3 screenshot leaked - FAKE

BF3Blog: "We’ve gotten a spicy screenshot showing Battlefield 3 in action. The source of this, a Swede who called himself “Doe”, said it was from an alpha version of BF3, supposedly taken at home at one of the DICE developers in Stockholm, Sweden.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, note that DICE has yet to release any screenshots or footage of the game, and that this might be fake. Having said that, it does look legit, and judging from the screenshot, or rather, a photo of the game in action, we can determine:

* The minimap looks more like BF2 than the recent Bad Company 2, and is positioned in the same upper right corner.
* Ammo (bottom right) and health indicators (bottom left) are similar to BF2 as well.
* The minimap shows two teams, US vs MEC, the same teams as featured in BF2 (MEC was also present in Bad Company 1)."


It’s a fake — Photoshopped from Bad Company 2 wallpaper.

Because the photo looks weird.

Still, looking forward to this, I loved BF2, second to Counter Strike, it was my favorite online game.

Edit, looks like a cutscene with the player plastered. But I'm not going to argue. It really looks awkward, I hope I'm not the only one seeing this.

I havent played competitive PC gaming since my BF2 gaming days. One word of advice EA, go back to your roots and emulate what was done soo well in BF2 and BF3 will be a success. That would mean develop this exclusively on the PC! This is a game along with SC2 that can bring PC gaming to a whole new level!

You can sure as hell expect me to buy a new rig for this game if its great.

Its fake. The pic is from the map Arica Harbor from BC2, with an edited HUD...

I do agree, I was hoping it would stick to PC only, to give me back that experience from BF2 that I miss so much. I rarely play on PC anymore, but I'd also upgrade further for this.

I just might get this for PC either way, I hope it has the essence from the last one, and 1942.

I'm sure BF3 will be good, but its going to be basically the same thing as BC2 except maybe online only, possibly more players per game and maybe jets.


I played CSS for the first time last week, and its not a bad game, but I just don't see what people think is so great about it, and if you're going to say its because of MODS, all I have to say is most of the mods that I've seen on that game are stupid. I went into a server where people were playing as Master cheif and the levels they created were the crappiest things you've ever seen, and that includes "The Ice Cave". Also, I've never seen more campers in my life. There are people on there who have probably been playing that game everyday for the last 5 years or so, and they camp every coridore and snipe every shooting lane and every high traffic area, its lame. Not to mention the fact that you have to buy all your weapons at the beginning of every round is the worst feature in the game.

It looks fake to me. Like someone just added the HUD from a BC2 screenshot.

Come on, even the character designs is from BC2.

"I'm sure BF3 will be good, but its going to be basically the same thing as BC2

It's evident that you don't know shit about Battlefield, or what the devs have been saying for the past 4 years.

Hmm? I dunno the field of view looks strange.

Edit: I call fakey fake.

Convas2873d ago (Edited 2873d ago )

Oooooh man. The game looks GREAT if this screen is anything to go by. Getting hyped. And I'm pretty sure this is what the "Take on the Planet" teaser is about.

Battlefield 3! WOOT!

looks like a fake to me. the gun and hud look like they were photo shopped onto the image.

Pandamobile2873d ago (Edited 2873d ago )

Looks like Arica Harbor with a superimposed FN2000 and photoshopped HUD.

Yep, it's Arica Harbor. Way to get my hopes up, BF3Blog :(
