Gameplay

''Battlefield 3'' features the combined arms battles across single-player, co-operative and multiplayer modes. It reintroduces several elements absent from the ''Battlefield: Bad Company, 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 is limited for Xbox 360 and PS3, though fly space remains the same. The game features maps set in Paris, Tehran (as well as other locations in Iran), Sulaymaniyah in Iraq, New York City, Wake Island, Oman, Kuwait City, and other parts of the Persian Gulf. The maps cover urban streets, metropolitan downtown areas, and open landscapes suited to vehicle combat. ''Battlefield 3'' introduces the "Battlelog"; a free cross-platform social service with built-in text messaging, Voice over Internet Protocol, voice communications, game statistics, and the ability to join games that friends are already playing (though both players need to be on the same platform).


Cooperative

A demo featuring the new co-op mode was featured at Gamescom#Gamescom 2011, gamescom 2011. Split screen (computer graphics), Split screen is not available. ''Battlefield 3''s new Battlelog social network, DICE noted, would be tied to all co-op matches, allowing players to try to beat friends' scores and to track their performance. Participating in co-op mode allows the player to collect points that unlock additional content that can be used in multiplayer.


Multiplayer

''Battlefield 3''s multiplayer matches see players take on one of four roles: Assault, Support, Engineer and Recon. The Assault class focuses on assault rifles and healing teammates. The Support class focuses on light machine guns and supplying ammunition. The Engineer class focuses on supporting and destroying vehicles. The Recon class focuses on sniping and Artillery observer, spotting enemies. The mechanics of the weapons have been changed to utilize the new engine: compatible weapons may have bipods attached which can then be deployed when in the prone position or near suitable scenery, and provide a significant boost to accuracy and recoil reduction. Suppressive fire from weapons blurs the vision and reduces the accuracy of those under fire, as well as health regeneration. The Recon class can put a radio beacon anywhere on the map and all squad members will be able to spawn on the location of the beacon. Several game modes are present, including Conquest, Rush, Squad Deathmatch, Squad Rush and for the first time since ''Battlefield 1942'', Team Deathmatch. However, more game modes are available through the purchase of extra downloadable content packs. The PC version of ''Battlefield 3'' is by default launched via a web browser from the Battlelog web site. A server browser is present in console versions of the game.


Synopsis


Setting and characters

''Battlefield 3''s Campaign story is set during the fictional "War of 2014" and covers events that occur over the span of nine months. Most of the story takes place in the Iran–Iraq region. Other locations include the Iranian-Azerbaijani border, Paris, and New York City. Most missions occur as flashbacks on part of the interrogation of Sergeant Henry Blackburn, and do not occur in order of events.''Battlefield 3'' The Campaign puts the player in control of four different player characters. For most of the story, the player controls Sergeant Henry "Black" Blackburn (portrayed by Gideon Emery), a member of the U.S. Marine Corps 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Recon Battalion and main protagonist. The player also controls Sgt. Jonathan "Jono" Miller, a M1 Abrams tank operator deployed in Tehran; Lt. Jennifer "Wedge" Colby Hawkins, an Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, F/A-18F Super Hornet weapon systems officer; and Dimitri "Dima" Mayakovsky, a Russian GRU operative. The main antagonist, Solomon, is an overseas asset for the Central Intelligence Agency. Non-player characters include: Misfit 1, Blackburn's squad (David Montes, Steve Campo, Christian Matkovic, Jack Chaffin, and Cpt. Quinton Cole); Dima's GRU squadmates Vladimir and Kiril; and CIA Agents Gordon and Whistler, who interrogate Blackburn for much of the Campaign.


Plot

On 15 March 2014, Blackburn's squad, Misfit 1, attempts to locate a U.S. squad investigating an improvised explosive device in Sulaymaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan, whose last known position was in territory controlled by the People's Liberation & Resistance, an Iranian paramilitary insurgent group. They are eventually ambushed by the PLR, who critically wound Chaffin, and is required to be extracted. They find the missing squad which had been ambushed by the PLR; but before they can escape, a massive earthquake wrecks the city. Blackburn, fellow squadmate Montes, and other survivors fight their way out of the ruins of the city. On the same day, the PLR stage a ''coup d'état'' in Iran, turning it into a military dictatorship, and the U.S. subsequently invades. Lt. Hawkins takes part in a raid on enemy fighters over Iran and an air strike over Mehrabad Airport. In the aftermath of the air strikes, Misfit 1 is sent into Tehran to perform battle damage assessment and apprehend the leader of the PLR, Faruk Al-Bashir. While investigating an underground bank vault in the target's suspected location, Blackburn and his team learn that the PLR have acquired Russian suitcase nukes, with two of the three devices missing. Being overrun, Misfit requests backup from an M1 Abrams column "Anvil 3", including Sergeant Miller. Miller facilitates Misfit 1's helicopter extraction, but his Abrams tank is disabled and overrun while the crew awaits the arrival of the Quick reaction force, Quick Reaction Force. Knocked out and taken prisoner, Miller is promptly executed by Solomon and Al-Bashir, with the event being filmed and posted on the Internet. Later, Misfit 1 manages to capture Al-Bashir, who is fatally wounded when they cause his escape vehicle to crash. Realizing that he had been betrayed and used, Al-Bashir reveals some of Solomon's plan—to detonate the nukes in Paris and New York City—before succumbing to his wounds. Misfit 1 gets a lead on arms dealer Amir Kaffarov, who was working with Solomon and Al-Bashir. They attempt to capture Kaffarov from his villa on the Caspian Sea coast, near the Azerbaijani border. However, they run into a Russian Airborne Troops, Russian paratrooper battalion, also after Kaffarov, who engage them. In the ensuing chaos, Blackburn's squadmates, Campo and Matkovic, are killed in an enemy strafing run. Meanwhile, a Spetsnaz team led by Dima assaults Kaffarov's villa. Kaffarov tries to bribe the team, but is promptly beaten by Dima. Blackburn arrives at the villa and finds Dima with a deceased Kaffarov. Dima reveals Solomon's plot to Blackburn, and requests his cooperation to prevent "a war between [their] nations". Meanwhile, Misfit 1's commanding officer Cole arrives, and Blackburn is forced to shoot him before he can kill Dima. Blackburn's shooting of his commanding officer results in his eight-hour interrogation by the C.I.A. at Hunters Point, Queens. During Blackburn's captivity, Dima's Spetsnaz squad attempts to stop the attack in Paris. However, Vladimir is killed, and the nuke detonates, killing 80,000 people. Meanwhile, the C.I.A. agents do not believe Blackburn's story, since Solomon is a C.I.A. informant, and there is no concrete proof of his involvement in the terrorist attacks. They instead believe that Russia is responsible for the attacks, and that Dima has tricked Blackburn. With no other options, Blackburn and Montes break out of captivity to stop the attack in New York. Evading police, Blackburn manages to sneak into the hijacked Long Island Rail Road commuter train, which is full of Solomon's men and explosive charges. He fights his way to the front car, where he is ambushed by Solomon. In the melee, Blackburn gains the upper hand by obtaining and activating the detonator to the charges, causing the train to crash. Blackburn pursues Solomon through the sewers and up to street level. Montes, having obtained a vehicle, picks up Blackburn and engages Solomon and the PLR in a brief vehicular chase, which ends with both cars crashing in Times Square. As a bewildered crowd watches on, Solomon shoots Montes, but Blackburn manages to kill Solomon by bludgeoning him to death with a brick in the ensuing brawl and prevents the nuclear bomb from detonating. In the epilogue, it is revealed that Dima had survived the Paris detonation, albeit suffering from radiation poisoning. He writes about the efforts of both himself and Blackburn to stop Solomon's plan "to set fire to the world". As he finishes, he examines a pistol. A knock comes from his door, the screen cuts to black, and the last sound is that of the pistol being loaded as Dima presumably prepares to defend himself.

Xbox 360
version of ''Battlefield 3'' is shipped on two discs due to the disc size limit; however, the PlayStation 3, PS3 version ships on one Blu-ray Disc. It is the first game in the series that does not support versions of Windows prior to Windows Vista as the game only supports DirectX 10 and 11. The PC version was exclusive to EA's Origin (service), Origin platform, through which PC users also authenticate when connecting to the game; however the game eventually arrived on Steam (service), Steam in June 2020. ''Battlefield 3'' debuts the new Frostbite (game engine), Frostbite 2 engine. This updated Frostbite engine can realistically portray the destruction of buildings and scenery to a greater extent than previous versions. Unlike previous iterations, the new version can also support dense urban areas. ''Battlefield 3'' used a new type of character animation technology called ANT that has been used in EA Sports games such as ''FIFA (video game series), FIFA'', but for ''Battlefield 3'' is adapted to create a more realistic soldier, with the ability to transition into cover and turn the head before the body, as well as "drag fallen comrades into safety and mount weapons on almost any part of the terrain". EA stated that Battlefield 2#Commander, Commander Mode was unlikely to be included, which was met with some criticism on the EA forum.


PlayStation 3 exclusive content

During Sony's E3 2011 press conference, Jack Tretton of Sony Computer Entertainment of America announced that the PlayStation 3 version of the game would be bundled with a free copy of ''Battlefield 1943'', however, at launch, the game was not included. EA then said that ''Battlefield 3'' PlayStation 3 owners would receive timed-exclusive DLC for the game instead. On 20 November 2011, Law firm Edelson McGuire took EA to court on behalf of disappointed gamers. The complaint focuses on EA's communication of the change of plan, second proposal with early DLC that had already been announced. Shortly after EA was threatened with being taken to court over its failure to deliver the free game as announced at E3, EA announced they will offer owners of the PlayStation 3 version of ''Battlefield 3'' a free downloadable copy of ''Battlefield 1943''.


Wii U version

On 7 June 2011, during Nintendo's E3 2011 press conference, John Riccitiello of EA games expressed interest in Nintendo's upcoming system, the Wii U. Patrick Liu, the executive producer of ''Battlefield 3'', stated that

Soundtrack

A soundtrack album was released on 24 October 2011, one day before the game was released. It is available on iTunes and Amazon. The music was composed by Johan Skugge and Jukka Rintamäki.


Easter eggs

''Battlefield 3'' and its five DLC packs contain numerous Easter egg (media), Easter eggs. Hiding in obscure areas of the game are references to other Electronic Arts games and franchises including ''Mirror's Edge'' and ''Mass Effect''. Some sources suggested other Easter eggs pointed to future ''Battlefield'' games or DLC packs. During the firefight in the mall trying to protect Al-Bashir, the store in which they are defending Al-Bashir has copies of games on the shelf and one game being titled "Frostbite" which references the engine used by ''Battlefield 3''. A wall on the multiplayer map "Wake Island" featuring the number 2143 and a futuristic hovercraft on a different map in the ''End Game'' DLC have been said to suggest a follow up to 2006's ''Battlefield 2142'' is in the works. Several dinosaur Easter eggs—such as a flying Pterodactylus, pterodactyl on the map "Nebandan Flats" and tyrannosaurus skulls or toy statues on various maps—have led others to believe a dinosaur-related game or DLC would be released in the future. The idea of a dinosaur-related minigame originated from fan feedback through social media outlets prior to ''Battlefield 3''s release. Neither of these possible upcoming games has been confirmed by EA.


Marketing and release

''Battlefield 3'' was revealed on 3 February 2011 by ''Game Informer''. The coverage included information on building the game and interviews with the developer EA DICE, DICE, as well as three trailers: a teaser and the first two parts in a series of gameplay from the level "Fault Line". Several other trailers were released showing different aspects of the game, including both single and multiplayer, as well as emphasizing the new engine. On 16 August 2011, co-op gameplay and a "Caspian Border Multiplayer Gameplay Trailer" were shown at Gamescom#Gamescom 2011, gamescom 2011 illustrating the co-op mode and the first footage of air combat, respectively. Trailer releases gained momentum in the week before the release of the game. EA released a multiplayer trailer which showed the variety of maps available in multiplayer, with short scenes of actual gameplay. It also featured shots of a map that is included in the "Back to Karkand" downloadable content (DLC). EA released a launch trailer, showing off the various missions in the single-player campaign. EA CEO John Riccitiello stated that ''Battlefield 3'' is aimed at competing with the ''Call of Duty'' series. EA planned on spending over $100 million on a marketing campaign for ''Battlefield 3''. Electronic Arts stated that ''Battlefield 3'' is a "flat out superior" to ''Call of Duty''. EA has said it is going on the "offense" in regards to its marketing on ''Battlefield 3'', saying that it started its campaign early to establish a "beachhead". Anyone who had watched a trailer for the upcoming film ''Act of Valor'' through the official ''Battlefield 3'' website could receive free downloadable dogtags for use with any version of the game. For marketing and distribution to Japan, EA worked with Sega's Japanese branch to distribute the game nationwide. In January 2017, the game was made backwards compatible with the Xbox One (alongside ''Battlefield: Bad Company 2'') and was subsequently added to the EA Access service.


Pre-order promotion

All pre-orders of the ''Limited Edition'' grant free access to the "Back to Karkand" DLC pack, a reference to the "Strike at Karkand" map (a popular ''Battlefield 2'' map), to include four maps brought over from ''Battlefield 2'', ten new weapons, four new vehicles, five new achievements/trophies, and a new addition to the series, "Assignments". The maps from the expansion pack will be: Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, Wake Island, and Sharqi Peninsula. Pre-ordering at selected retailers and Origin included the "Physical Warfare Pack", granting access to time-based exclusive weapons and items; including a light machine gun, a sniper rifle accessory, and armor-piercing ammunition.

Pre-ordering at Origin gave players a shotgun and beret for ''Battlefield Play4Free'', and 48 hour early access to the ''Battlefield 3'' beta. Originally the "Physical Warfare Pack" was to be exclusive to pre-orders, but fan reaction to this was negative, causing EA to clarify that it would be made available to all players for free later in the year. On 2 September 2011, a trailer for the Physical Warfare Pack was released on YouTube showing all the content included within the pack in action in-game.

Online pass

To access the game's online multiplayer mode on consoles, players need to activate an online pass. New copies of the game include one online pass for the original owner of the game to access the multiplayer; however, if a player buys a used copy or rents the game, they must purchase an online pass separately, or access a 48-hour trial via the official game site. When asked why the developers implemented the pass system, game designer Alan Kertz replied, "because servers cost money, and used games don't make developers any money." Some of the online pass codes were invalid from the time of purchase, which EA responded to by telling affected consumers to ask the retailer for a replacement code.

Other responses

A scene in which the player is prompted to kill a rat that is attacking their character was criticized by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Iran has reacted to the scenes set within Iran by banning the sale of the game. As the game had not been officially released in the country, the authorities were strictly enforcing the prevention of the distribution of pirated copies of the game.
