Battlefield creators DICE will give us our first peek at the long-awaited Battlefield 3 tomorrow, February 4, in video teaser form. But the latest Game Informer magazine cover gives us a small hint at what to expect.
Visually, Battlefield 3's art has the same vibe present in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and its Vietnam expansion, but it's the decimated environments that may offer the biggest clues to the next Battlefield game's big selling point. GI mentions a few new technical features, including animation techniques borrowed from the EA Sports guys and an "exponential leap in destructibility."
Keep an eye peeled tomorrow for the first teaser for the upcoming PS3, Xbox 360 and PC game, when we'll hopefully see what DICE's "Frostbite 2" game engine is capable of—and if Battlefield 3 is capable of chipping away at Call of Duty's ever-increasing fan base.
