We'd had word that this one wasn't supposed to go live until late tomorrow night, but the official EA Battlefield site seems to have other ideas as a new trailer "Battlefield 3 Fault Line Episode 2: Good Effect on Target" is currently streaming away over there.

The new trailer shows yet more of that breathtaking graphical capability we saw in the first gameplay video, this time in a picturesque urban-skyscraper rooftop scene. Of particular note is the intracacy of the animation system seen in the incredibly fluid movements of your teammates.
Follow our squad of U.S. Marines as they move to the rooftops to eliminate an enemy sniper in an abandoned hotel. This in-game footage from Battlefield 3 shows off the ANT animation technology from EA Tech in all its glory, with a climactic ending that speaks volumes of how the Frostbite 2 engine handles destruction
We'll hopefully have a nice as-high-as-possible resolution version available for local download tomorrow, but don't wait for that, head over to EA.com and check this bad boy out now.

Battlefield 3 is due in Spring 2011 (U.S. Fall) for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For more juicy details, check out our recent interview with with EA DICE CEO Patrick Söderlund

Update: We now have this one available locally. Watch the embed below, click here for the 720p streaming option or head over to our files library to download the 1080p source file.

@Carson: I had that issue in Firefox, but played fine in Chrome. Going to bed now, otherwise I'd look into what might be causing it (suspect it's a FF add-on).

Added local-hosted vid to the OP.

The peek at destruction tech as the rocket hits the opposing building at the end is pretty goddam lush.

not to be picky but they were kicking up dirt as if they were walking on a dirt road while on the roof. figured all the effort they put in already tehy would fix that before releaseing this jizzmatic video

Yeh i notice that too, it was a bit of fail... the other thing i was slightly upset about was when sniper shot and the leaves went everywhere they disapeared when it hit the ground :( would be nice if it was left on the ground..

I liked it apart from the fuckin nong that was playing.
I'm guessing all that awkward standing around out of cover was to show us the animation of the team mates but fuck, It fully ruined any kind of epic feel I would have otherwise gotten from that trailer.

do you guys also go around having rainman moments over cracks in the sidewalk?

Posted 01:52pm 17/3/11
Yea the use of cover was terribad, also when he handed the AT to the other to show off animations (which were good) he never actually took it off his shoulder, just plucked it out of mid air... unlimited ammo!

Still hot though.

wheres the violence?

all im seeing is GPU juice

Looks good. So is this the campaign or what? I only care about multiplayer TBH.
Tollaz0r!
Posted 02:32pm 17/3/11
Not much has been said about multiplayer. Hopefully Harrier jets will be involved for all kinds of lols.
Bah

Love how all fps games have motion blur meaning you can't see anything while turning, first thing i turn off.
Eorl
Posted 03:16pm 17/3/11
That would be the campaign. Multiplayer would be shown later on, as it says pre-alpha.

That has to be the worst sniper ever.

That sniper had wall hax...

Can't wait to play it.

That scenario was very lame and lowered the feeling of realism for me.

I'd be surprised if the 5970 didn't run it smoothly. I'm sure you shouldn't need 4 GPUs to get a decent framerate.

The sniper most likely saw a flash of helmet, and proceeded to shoot. And then the yelling from the soldiers confirmed that people were there. The sniper is just hitting off cover areas trying to get shots at the squad.

The AT was actually pulled off his back, as you could see it before hand. It was slid to him quite well. You can never get animations to look as realistic as possible however.

Also, I believe the person actually playing the demo was obviously trying to show off models, animations, lighting and destruction. That is why the stood out in the open and were getting nearly taken out by the sniper.

"Snipers" in these third world shitholes are usually just 16 year olds with 30 year old ak's sitting hidden in some window somewhere, not some uber 1337 spec ops guy with a $50000 rifle firing $1000 rounds.

^^ yeah I realized that, it just made the feel of the trailer feel so tacky as a result.

16 year old kids with 50 cals?
Eorl
Posted 12:36pm 18/3/11
Haha yeah, they yell out .50 cal, so I don't think it was some 16 year old. I just imagine, like I said, that the sniper was taking pot shots to get them out of cover.
