Battlefield 3 is an upcoming installment in the long-running Battlefield video game series and the direct sequel to Battlefield 2. It will feature the maximalist combined arms battles that made the series popular across single-player, co-operative and multiplayer modes. It will reintroduce several elements removed from the Bad Company games, including fighter jets, the prone position and (on PC only) 64-player battles (24 players on console). A new animation system will allow players to "drag fallen comrades into safety and mount weapons on almost any part of the terrain." The destructible environments of DICE's Frostbite engine will also be in use.
Maps set in Paris, Tehran and New York have been confirmed. As a whole the game will cover urban streets, metropolitan downtown areas, and open landscapes suited to vehicle combat.
On 30 July, 2010, EA announced that purchasers of the Limited Edition and Tier 1 Edition of Medal of Honor for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will receive an invitation to the beta contingent on Beta availability within 1 year of Medal of Honor's release on 12 October.
A Limited Edition of the game will ship with a DLC pack called "Back to Karkand", to include four maps and several weapons and vehicles brought over from Battlefield 2. The pack will become available for general purchase one month after BF3's release.
