20110612-074925.jpgThree new video’s released at E3 attempt to show of the Battlefields strengths, but will it be enough to beat the largest gaming series on any platform in history.

New locations and a design focused video were released showing information about some of the battlegrounds you will find yourself on, plus we got to see designs that are stunning. Large open locations, destructible environments and a level of graphical detail you can argue we have not seen in gaming yet. With technology getting better each day it was not a stretch to understand gaming will push the capabilities of the tech, but with games still being released with sub par graphics it is great to see someone standing up to lead the way.

Previous trailers have highlighted the campaign in Iraq, one of the videos shows gameplay in Paris. Also urban and desert combat with mobile ground forces utilising armor and a good number of weapons.

All and all, this game looks great & I believe it will be able to grab the CoD series by the throat and shake the living bejesus out of it. The release date was also set over the E3 show and the this too looks like a stab at the larger series market share, releasing 2 weeks prior to the next CoD. Look out for the game on Xbox360 Playstation 3 and PC on October 25th.
