Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Trailer has BASE jumping

The more I think about the Battlefield 3 Beta, the more I come to realize how much I was soured on the game because of it. True, I’ve done more than enough complaining about the Beta, but a lot of my problems with the game proper boiled down to the choice of map. Operation Metro (or “Mehtro” as Eddy coined it) was so bland and Call of Duty like that it didn’t give the “Battlefield feel”, the nebulous experience that I’ve been clamoring for. This new trailer showcasing the multiplayer maps just might make me eat my words, however. There’s BASE jumping, guys. BASE jumping.

The thing about trailers, though, is that they’re designed to make anything look good. Heck, Operation Metro looked awesome in this video. Still, I can’t get over the shot of the soldiers jumping off the cliff as helicopters roar overhead. So, what say you? Are you back on the bandwagon?

  1. That’s a fantastic trailer, it just makes me even more pumped for the game. I did take part in the beta, and I really enjoyed it with my friends, even though it wasn’t a proper Battlefield map. I can’t wait, this is a first-day purchase, without a doubt!

  2. Having played Operation Metro and then Caspian Border map (thank you so much Internet), I must say I was truky delighted by the latter. 64 multiplayer chaos. By no means I was dissapointed, but I can’t help but think that they really screwed it choosing Operation Metro. It wasn’t BF.

    But this…
    THIS.
    It’s incredible.

    Cute. I caught this trailer last night for the first time. Less impressed with it than with the ones (usually homemade)showing the level of destruction buildings can/do take.

    Pre-ordered this in June (thank you for the $10 off, Best Buy Canada), and haven’t regretted it.

  4. So I was watching the trailer, thinking “Hmm, BASE jumping sounds kinda cool, but it’s probably not THAT fun.” I’m seeing all these landscapes and stuff, and then I see these guys running towards the edge of a building.

    And I’m thinking, “They’re not really gonna jump off of that, are they?”

    And they did. Holy shit.

    This just turned into a buy for me. Not a day one buy, but a buy nonetheless.
