Battlefield 3 packshot image
Battlefield 3 will feature the maximalist combined arms battles that made the series popular across single-player, co-operative and multiplayer modes. It will reintroduce several elements absent from the Bad Company games, including fighter jets, the prone position and 64-player battles on PC. To accommodate the lower player count on consoles, the ground area will be limited for Xbox 360 and PS3, though fly space will remain the same.
Battlefield 3 features the return of class-based game play, with four classes: Assault, Support, Engineer and Recon. The abilities of the Frostbite 2 engine will be utilized, with the Engineer's flashlight able to blind other players, and concentrated LMG fire blurring the vision of suppressed players.
Several game modes have been announced: Conquest, Rush, and a new mode, Team Deathmatch.
