EA's upcoming shooter Battlefield 3 lets you destroy certain parts of the environment. Not all of it, but enough to let them compile this 57-second trailer of buildings collapsing.

You've seen some of this footage before, but most of it looks to have been captured directly in-game, including some multiplayer madness involving man vs helicopter and Mig vs communications tower.

Battlefield 3 is out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 25.
