'Battlefield 3' video shows pre-order weapons pack
Saturday 03 September 2011
Audacious Electronic Arts released a new trailer for
Battlefield 3 on the same day as rival Activision pulled out all the stops on a
Call of Duty convention.
The Physical Warfare Pack trailer highlights the three special in-game weapons that are to be given away free to those who pre-order Battlefield 3.
First up is a high capacity, high fire rate Type 88 light machine gun, followed by a Flash Suppressor muzzle for sneaky SKS sniper rifle users, and a thunderous DAO-12 shotgun with flechette rounds.
A new Call of Duty trailer was released at around the same time - or, rather, a private link to the official video, which was swiftly pulled pending its reveal at the Call of Duty XP event.
Battlefield 3 is out on October 25 in North America and October 28 in European regions. That gives it two weeks to establish a foothold before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has a crack at demolishing sales records on November 8.
