Dice and Electronic Arts has finally revealed the first details from the upcoming Battlefield 3. The game will be released in the fall of 2011 and a multiplayer beta will be launched before the final release.

The game uses the graphics engine Frostbite 2.0, a further development of the engine used in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Battlefield 3 will be formally unveiled at the Game Developer Conference next month, as part of the EA Partners presentation.

Gameinfo from the Battlefield 3 website:

Battlefield 3 allows you to feel the full impact of battle like never before.  Powered by Frostbite 2, the next generation of DICE’s cutting-edge gaming engine, Battlefield 3 delivers spectacular visuals, earth-shattering destruction and real as hell combat gameplay providing a dramatic immersive First Person Shooter experience.

One moment you may be marching down a hilltop listening to the hypnotic sound of a firefight in the distance or admiring the way the light reflects off the smoke plumes of ground to air missiles rising from the city you’re about to engage.  The next you’re on an urban street, surrounded, claustrophobic, fighting for your life and looking eight ways at once with all your senses on high alert, chilled at the knowledge that the building you’re hiding behind can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

Welcome to Battlefield 3.
