Battlefield 3 premium people get double XP weekend, non-premium dogs get dog tag challenge

Dog tags for the blood dogs! If they work hard, that is. If all Battlefield 3 players can work together long enough to reach 200,000,000,000 in score by the end of Sunday March 17, DICE will unlock a new dog tag for each and every one of them. There’s even greater incentive for premium players, who’ve got the benefits of double XP from now til the end of the weekend.

Battlefield 2142 easter egg bobs about aimlessly in Battlefield 3: End Game

Battlefield 2142 easter egg bobs about aimlessly in Battlefield 3: End Game

Battlefield 2142 was DICE’s foray into sci-fi that wasn’t Mirror’s Edge - a mech-bothering spinoff that made its home a second ice age, and the EU one of its warring factions. Six years and five Battlefield games later, it’s been all but buried beneath the rubble of modern warfare. But it’s not forgotten, if we're to heed a conspicuous white drone in new Battlefield 3 DLC End Game.

Battlefield 3: End Game developer interview reveals DLC is about “speed and agility”

“We're going all in with speed," says DICE lead designer Niklas Fegraeus of the series’ final release before Battlefield 4. “Speed and agility is the theme of this pack. End Game is really about the adrenaline that comes with high speed combat and chases."

It’s also about the four seasons. More on that in the video below.

Battlefield: End Game’s new maps revealed as still life in latest trailer

We’re in the last days of Battlefield 3; the final flutter of those great, blue-tinted wings before the bird bursts into flames and is born anew as, well, something fairly similar if DICE are to be believed, and I dare say they are.

But what a send-off: maps and dropships and Capture the Flag and bikes and bikes and bikes and bikes.

More bikes after the bike.

Battlefield 3: End Game's Air Superiority mode will support 24 planes in the air

Battlefield 3's final piece of DLC, End Game, is almost in our hands, what with its 2 March release date. Over the weekend we learned details of each of the four new maps and, as media types like us will do, we've now laid hands on a video interview that details the two game modes packaged with End Game. I'm careful not to say 'new' because both Capture the Flag and Air Superiority have featured in Battlefield games of old, instead they are making a return with this DLC.

Among other things, the Battlefield TV interview tomorrow reveals that Air Superiority will support 24 jets simultaneously in the air, 12 on each team.

Check out the interviews with DICE producer Craig McLeod and game designer Gustav Halling below.

DICE talk the dirt bike, Capture the Flag and how to best combine them in Battlefield 3: End Game

DICE talk the dirt bike, Capture the Flag and how to best combine them in Battlefield 3: End Game

Battlefield 1942’s bike was its heart, beating at a thousand controlled explosions per second. Before they knew what a capture point was, or even how to wield a mouse, a new player could hop into a sidecar-laden vehicle, feel the expansive map rolling beneath their wheels, and run down at least one man before taking a stray bullet to the head.

End Game brings the bike back to Battlefield, and with it nuanced strategic potential that goes far beyond the 1942 suicide run. DICE blogger H Brun is on hand to talk us through its application in the DLC’s accompanying Capture the Flag mode.

Battlefield 3 blog goes into the nitty gritty of dirt bike jumps

Battlefield 3 blog goes into the nitty gritty of dirt bike jumps

One of the strengths of Battlefield 3 is that each new DLC brings geographically stunning maps and vehicles with which to explore them. For instance, Armored Kill's Alborz Mountain, a vast map that explored elevation, had players move from a low-lying lake up to a snowy mountain top. This could either be done slowly on foot or the whole scale of the thing could be taken in rapidly by helicopter.

It's why the dirt bike that's coming in the End Game DLC is quite so appetising, it's going to give us the means to travel about the levels on ground level ridiculously quickly. A new blog post from DICE goes into the many jumps that the dirt bike will be taking advantage of. Check out some excepts and video below.

Battlefield 3: End Game’s Capture the Flag mode looks amazeballs

I know that the very best first-person shooters are frenetic things - the most fun you can have in ten seconds. I know that Battlefield at its best is a collision of men and vehicles above, below, and head-on to each other, in a desaturated landscape that definitely shouldn’t feel more real than reality, hyper-real, but nevertheless does.

It’s rare that I’m reminded of all that by a DLC trailer. Come on in.

Battlefield 3: End Game sees return of Air Superiority mode

DICE have been doing well on using their DLC packs to add features to Battlefield 3 that were oddly absent in the vanilla release despite being present in their older games. There was the Back to Kharkand map pack that brought old maps into the new engine and now we learn that the final DLC release for Battlefield 3, End Game, will bring back the Air Superiority and Capture the Flag game modes that were playable in Battlefield 1943.

More below.
