Battlefield 3 - fully automatic

DICE revealed an October 25 release date for Battlefield 3 at the EA press conference. There will also be a cross-platform multiplayer open beta arriving in September as well. The E3 demo showed a single player level set entirely inside a tank. We saw the player engaging in long distance warfare with a squadron of enemy armour before calling in an air strike on an enemy base and rolling in to destroy the outpost.
