This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and character animation utilizing ANT technology as seen in the latest EA SPORTS™ games.

    Having built Frostbite 2 over the course of the last three years, this is not a minor iteration of what DICE has used before. Frostbite 2 has been built from scratch to match the design goals for Battlefield 3 and beyond.
    “Where other shooters are treading water Battlefield 3 innovates. Frostbite 2 is a game-changer for shooter fans. We call it a next-generation engine for current-generation platforms.” said Karl Magnus Troedsson, General Manager DICE
    There are 5 key pillars which define the Frostbite 2 experience from a technical and artistic point of view
    •Animation

    •Rendering
    •Scale

    Going forward, we will fill these pillars with detailed information on how Battlefield 3 is transforming the shooter genre with the tool that is Frostbite 2. Stay tuned.

    Never understood why people add "official" in these thread names, unless your a PSU.com staff member i don't see how this is official in any shape or form

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    Should I rename it "BF3 Unofficial Thread"? Let me know what title best suits your needs.

    Official threads are made so all the discussion about said game occurs in one centralised thread rather than having millions of threads on the same topic.

    Although i do think official threads should be made much nearer to release rather than 6-8 months before with minimal information and media...

    I'd usually agree on the time thing, but this is BF3, the sequel to BF2, the best FPS ever, IMO of course and not just another Bad Company title. Besides, there will be plenty of info from now on.

    If you want to make it, you can have mine and add the info yourself. I'll ask a mod if you want. I just did it because BF is my favorite franchise.

    Dice updated their web page with all those fantastic tech papers from GDC2011.
    http://publications.dice.se/
    SPU Based Deferred Shading in Battlefield 3 for Playstation 3
    Culling the Battlefield Data Oriented Design in Practice
    Approximating Translucency for a Fast, Cheap and Convincing Subsurface Scattering Look
    Lighting you up in Battlefield 3



    Very informative about their new engine and how they use ps3 hardware, they sure let those SPUs sing.

    You are right, but the PS3 version seems to be 24 versus which I'm not sure if it means 24 or 48.

    It's 24 players all in all so 12 versus 12, that is what dice said in the very first scans. Really the biggest reason I am not going to play it on console.

    whats with all the digs at Bad Company? An absolutely fantastic game experience, and will probably prove to be more fun on consoles than a load of ego-jockeys queuing up on the runway to play Tom Cruise

    Anyway cant wait, played BF since the start, and for the record, BF is the king of games, the true original and WWII to boot. Just not sure the scale will suit console play

    I loved 64 Karkand, but now my PC won't be able to handle it, so it's 12 v. 12 on the PS3 or nothing.
