There is no Battlefield canon. BF1942’s World War II doesn’t shape the sci-fi tundra battles of BF2142, and buying XP boosters as a cartoon Nazi has no bearing on Bad Company 2’s royal rumbles. The developers, DICE, go where they want, and after years of circle-strafing around the subject, it’s time for Battlefield 3. My first glimpse of it at DICE’s Stockholm HQ is a bit of a shock: singleplayer, urban. DICE briefly mention that there will be multiplayer on the same scale as Battlefield 2, but retreat from any specific talk of it. For now they’re showing the strides they’ve made with their wonderful Frostbite engine – now up to v2.0 – and demoing the setting and the singleplayer. You’ll play Sgt Black, part of a four-man squad in a city on the Iran/ Iraq border, patrolling the streets for insurgents. As if that locale wasn’t unstable enough, it’s also built on a faultline. And it’s a towering, glittering city, not the dusty, clichéd Middle East tips we’re used to seeing. Cast in highcontrast blueish light, it’s gorgeous.
