The first in a regular series of trailers for Battlefield 3 expands on glimpses of single-player gameplay seen earlier in a February teaser clip.
Set in 2014 along the Iraq-Iran border, Fault Line Episode 1: Bad Part of Town follows a marine Staff Sergeant as he deploys with his four-man squad.
Another crew has gone missing while on the hunt for a chemical weapons site, and Staff Sergeant Blackburn's men are tasked with the rescue mission.
Destructible environments and collapsible buildings are distinctive features in the Battlefield series, alluded to in Bad Part Of Town as an earthquake tremor shakes up Blackburn's squad before they run into trouble.
Though the game is set for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as well, Battlefield 3 could have a marked impact on computer upgrades when it launches in autumn 2011.
It's the PC version that's on display in the trailer, and it's to take advantage of the latest hardware, dropping support for Windows XP in favor of Vista, Windows 7 and compatible graphics cards.
The game is intended to take on annual blockbuster franchise Call of Duty, which has made a habit of releasing during the first few weeks of November.

Episode 2 is due March 16, and the full game is expected to recieve an age rating of Mature / 18+.
