Battlefield 3 Caspian Border Gameplay Trailer has Jets

Ever since the days of Battlefield 1942, brave players have been taking to the skies, trying to master the the obtuse controls of those flighty temptresses, airplanes. If you managed to take wing without some bad mannered teammate blowing you up on the ground, you’d be lucky to stay airborne for more than a few moments before an AA tower or a rocket launcher brought you down.

As frustrating as flying sometimes was, fans have been clamoring for the return of jets ever since Battlefield 2 and DICE is more than happy to oblige, showing off jets in action with a trailer for a vehicle-based multiplayer arena in Battlefield 3 called Caspian Border. Watch and drool, Battlefield fans.

So much of that makes me so happy. Caspian Border reminds me a lot of Battlefield 2’s open maps, so I managed to get a hit of nostalgia among all that Frostbite 2 new hotness. What do you guys think about this footage? Excited about the return of jets in Battlefield 3?

  1. OMGASM…
    That looks too good to resist. The sheer amount of stuff going on makes me want the PC version more and more. Maybe I need new new friends. Or maybe we all need rigs. One or the other.

  2. I just feel torn. Xbox or PC? Ill have a PC that can run it, its just that PC has better graphics and the 64 player battles, but I think everyone is getting it on Xbox (at least those I regularly play with) I dunno which to get!!

    It looks amazing though. Looks like so much fun

  3. Started watching this at work and didn’t realise till the end that i had a whole crowd out people behind me watching with jaws on the floor.

    Just take my credit card now DICE…

  4. This is more exciting than my city getting our Jets back (lol).

    Can’t wait, looks gorgeous. If you are going to be doing lots of flying, I’d definitely say play it on a console. If there’s one thing PC gaming does terribly (without a controller) is operating vehicles. If you’ve got the setup to quickly switch between Joystick and Keyboard+Mouse than go for it, but other wise, flying WASD is just lame.

  5. Holy crap. That seriously just blew me away. Shut up and take my money.

    Also, that opening shot with all the vehicles descending down the hill made me so, so very happy.

    Im with Eddy on both accounts. This game is a GIVEN. ANd the best scene of that was definitely the hill scene. I cant imagine battles on that scale. I can only imagine that it will come out as being epic, in all its meaning.
