Battlefield 3 (commonly abbreviated to BF3) is a first-person shooter due released on 25th/27th October 2011. It is a direct sequel to 2005's Battlefield 2, but the eleventh installment in the Battlefield franchise.
Campaign: The campaign is set near the Iraq-Iran border, where the US Marine Corps is fighting the People's Liberation and Resistance (PLR). Players are able to use vehicles during the campaign, such as tanks, helicopters and jets, but their use will be limited.
Cooperative: Co-op mode contains 6 missions to be played with another player. The player is able to compete against other Battlelog friends to gain the best score, as well as unlocking various weapons.
Multiplayer: Battlefield 3 reintroduces jet combat both online and in its campaign. Battlefield 3's multiplayer matches see players take on one of four roles: Assault, Support, Engineer and Recon. The Assault class are able to equip defibrillators and medkits, as was the case in Battlefield 2142. The mechanics of the light machine gun (LMG) have been changed to utilize the new engine: bipods can be deployed anywhere when in the prone position or near suitable scenery, and provide a significant boost to accuracy and recoil reduction.
Suppressive fire from such weapons blurs the vision and reduces the accuracy of those under fire. The Engineer class will receive a flashlight that can be used to blind other players. The Recon class will be able to 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 have been announced, including Conquest, Rush, Squad Deathmatch, Squad Rush and for the first time in the Battlefield series Team/Squad Deathmatch.
