EA has released a new Battlefield 3 trailer focusing on the shooter's destruction gameplay.
Destruction is being billed as one of the "pillars of Battlefield 3" and is a key feature of developer DICE's new Frostbite 2 engine.
There's almost a minute of footage showing how environments crumble and crash down around you in the heat of battle. Blowing things up has never looked so much fun.
Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Liu said this week that he thinks EA's franchise has the edge on Call of Duty, although he admitted he's just pleased his game's being bracketed in the same league as the current FPS genre king.
"It feels good," to be compared to Call of Duty, he said. "They're behemoths, and just the notion that we would be able to take a chunk from their gamers is awesome."
