Sweet, sweet warfare eye candy.

EA and DICE have delivered, on a silver platter no less, a whopping 12-minute gameplay trailer for Battlefield 3. This is the entire “Fault Line” series combined into one glorious showcase of the Frostbite 2 tech running the upcoming DICE shooter. Everything we’ve seen thus far has pretty much blown us away, this trailer is no exception. Even if we’re re-watching segments (for like the 12th time now) we still can’t get over how beautiful this game looks.

Here’s a quick rundown of what you’ll find in the below trailer (if you still feel like reading my words and not just jumping right into the video). Basically, you get a look at standard gunplay, disarming an IED, Battlefield 3’s melee combat system and the destruction effects caused by explosions, both of the grenade and rocket launcher variety. Oh yea, you also see an earthquake tear apart the city streets, causing a skyscraper to topple to the ground. You know, normal stuff.

OK, now you have my permission to watch the trailer. Enjoy!
