Battlefield 3 trailer reveals autumn release date

EA's CoD competitor steps out

Battlefield 3 is set for release in fall (or autumn to us Brits) this year according to a reveal trailer that has hit the net.

Battlefield 3 developer DICE issued some encouraging words to PC gamers in October last year, emphasising that fearful they wouldn't get a "consolized" version of the shooter.

Artwork from US retail mag Game Informer reveals that the game is powered by the brand new Frostbite 2 engine and that it has Call of Duty's crown firmly in its iron sights.

DICE aren't holding back either in this opening reveal salvo with executive producer Patrick Bach calling Frostbite 2 "the best piece of technology on the market when it comes to building games."
