The novelization of the game, Battlefield 3: The Russian, written by respected author Andy McNab, takes place in the same universe as the game. Despite this, there are noticeable differences in the story, as well as mainly depicting the events via Dimitri "Dima" Mayakovsky's perspective, in contrast to Henry Blackburn's point of view mainly used in the game, hence the title.

Battlefield 3 was revealed on February 4, 2011 with a teaser trailer called My Life, and was the cover story of the March 2011 issue of GameInformer.[12] The game was first showcased on March 1, 2011 during GDC 2011, which revealed unedited gameplay for the first time. DICE announced shortly after that the development of the PC versions of Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2's Onslaught were cancelled to concentrate on the development of Battlefield 3, stating it would be their biggest Battlefield release yet.[13]

The developers had recorded real life sounds of vehicles and weapons from a military training exercise with their goal being to create "cleaner and brighter audio."[14] As stated by Thomas Danko, voice over producer at DICE: "No FPS ever had this large amount of VO variations for Multi Play, not even close. Over 300 for the "Man down" event alone." [15]


An Open Beta for Battlefield 3, announced at E3 2011, ran across the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC starting September 29, 2011 and ending October 10, 2011. The maps featured were Operation Métro and gamemode Rush (the same as in the Alpha trial), and Caspian Border in 64-player Conquest gamemode (PC only). DICE, during the announcement of the Beta, stated that there would be no level or unlock cap in the Beta, allowing players to unlock any weapon in the game.

Owners of Medal of Honor: Limited Edition and Medal of Honor: Tier 1 Edition, as well customers who pre-ordered Battlefield 3 on EA's Origin service, got 48-hour early access to the beta. This early access was originally intended to be a closed beta for owners of the special editions of Medal of Honor, although for an unknown reason this was changed to the early access.

In a similar fashion to Battlefield: Bad Company and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 was heavily marketed since it's official announcement, thanks to a marketing budget of nearly US$200 million from owner Electronic Arts.

The first set of trailers after the Teaser Trailer was the introduction of the Fault Line series, starting with the Battlefield 3: Gameplay Trailer and ending with the full twelve minute Battlefield 3: Fault Line Gameplay Trailer, as well as a developer commentary by Patrick Bach and being the setting of the Battlefield 3: My Life Trailer, which has commonly been shown as a TV advert during popular TV events such as the FA Cup final in the United Kingdom.

During E3 2011, the Thunder Run trailer was unveiled, alongside two gameplay trailers set on the multiplayer map Operation Métro. Following the huge success of the three trailers after E3, a new trailer, the Caspian Border gameplay trailer, was released after being shown at Gamescom 2011, showcasing jet and vehicle gameplay.

In late September 2011, during the build-up to the Open Beta, a new trailer, set to the rap song "99 Problems" by artist Jay-Z, was revealed to be a new TV ad. The final three trailers for the game were released in the week before its release - a multiplayer trailer, a story trailer, and a live-action/gameplay trailer - each being well received by the gaming community. In the live-action/gameplay trailer, a new tagline was introduced - "Is it real? Or is it Battlefield 3?"


The marketing from certain senior EA executives and staff hasn't been met without some criticism. A number of high-level EA staff began attacking main rivals Activision and, in particular, the Call of Duty series, saying, on several occasions, that Battlefield 3 would soundly defeat the Call of Duty franchise, or words to that effect.

However, Activision employees, including publishing boss Eric Hirshberg, responded negatively to these statements, saying EA's attitude was bad for the industry as a whole.[16]

PS3 Owners vs EA Lawsuit

At Sony's E3 2011 press conference, EA announced that for all PlayStation 3 players, each new copy of Battlefield 3 would come with a free code of Battlefield 1943. This resulted in many to buy/pre-order the game, greatly boosting the game's overall sales. It was later revealed that EA and DICE had decided to retract their offer, stating that many of those who had pre-ordered Battlefield 3 already owned Battlefield 1943 and had been playing it for years.

To compensate for this, EA and Sony announced that all PSN users would get a week early access to Back to Karkand. In spite of this, several PlayStation 3 owners filed a class action lawsuit against EA. Edelson McGuire, head of the group, alleged that EA ”misled and profited from thousands of their customers by making a promise that they could not keep". EA has since apologized for this and later issued codes for PS3 users to download Battlefield 1943 (now expired) in response to the lawsuit, and also kept the one-week early access deal for not only Back to Karkand but all future expansions for the game as well.

Battlefield 3 has received mostly positive reviews from critics at launch.

  • The game currently holds scores in Metacritic of 89,[17] 85[18] and 84[19] for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, respectively.
  • It also holds scores in GameRankings of 86.82%[20] for PC, 84.71%[21] for PlayStation 3 and 84.80%[22] for Xbox 360. Critics praised the game's nice graphics, realistic audio and enjoyable multiplayer. It was criticized, however for its many bugs, glitches, and boring singleplayer campaign. DICE moved quickly, however, and the game is now practically bug-free.
  • GameSpot gave the game an 8.5 out of 10,[23] saying that "Battlefield 3 may not offer much beyond the multiplayer, but there are so many ways to contribute and feel like a powerful soldier that after hours and hours of playing, all you'll want to do is play more."
  • IGN gave the game a 9 out of 10,[24] saying that "Regardless of the narrative missteps or the occasional glitches, Battlefield 3 offers an unforgettable, world-class multiplayer suite that's sure to excite shooter fans, whether they fired their first bullet in Battlefield 1942 or have just now heeded Battlefield's call of duty."
  • GameSpy gave the game a perfect score of 5 out of 5 stars,[25] saying that "It would be a shame for such an amazing interactive entertainment experience to be marred by technical issues. In the long run, though, it won't matter, because once players step out of that troop carrier and see the sun shining in their eyes like never before -- once they see the light -- they'll understand what a special game Battlefield 3 is."


  • An article on Kotaku states that the single-player campaign was inspired by multiple war movies such as Generation Kill, The Hurt Locker, Black Hawk Down, and the television series 24. It is also said that there is a focus on the campaign's characters' (including the player's) personalities and dialog. Additionally, the date of 2014 was chosen to not politicize the story.
  • The Marine on the cover of Battlefield 3 is portrayed by Dennis Lennartsson, who also portrayed the U.S. Army soldier on Bad Company 2's cover art.
  • One lighting probe from Frostbite 2's lighting system contains more lighting information than an entire level from Bad Company 2.
  • This is the first non-EA Sports game to utilize ANT, an animation program that powers EA games like FIFA, to create realistic third person animations and smoother transitions for AI and multiplayer characters.
  • Sounds such as weapons firing is unique in different environments, angles, and distances.
  • A developer's console is present.
  • "Fault Line Series - Episode 1: Bad Part of Town" was released the morning of March 2, 2011; 1 day after a reveal event by EA and DICE showcasing 15 minutes of gameplay.[17]
  • Unlike previous installments, weapon reloading differs when a changed magazine is empty or when it still has rounds in it.
  • When Battlefield 3 got 800,000 likes on Facebook, the 12 minute, full-length trailer originally supposed to be uploaded on April 17 was released early. The producer's commentary was released on April 22.
  • According to a GamersSpot article, the dinosaur at the beginning of the E3 demo and Thunder Run trailer was placed in response to a 4chan thread in which a supposed Activision sales manager wondered why their Call of Duty game didn't sell as well on PC as it did on consoles, with several responses saying it was due to a lack of dinosaurs.[26] Gustav Halling, a gameplay designer for Back to Karkand, tweeted about it.[27]
  • A tweet by senior gameplay designer Alan Kertz stated the detail in the shell casings are different based on US and RU weapons. He later tweeted that shotguns and personal defense weapons would be all-kit weapons.[28]
  • Vaulting, and the player being able to see their own legs and arms, was inspired by Mirror's Edge, a game that was also developed by DICE
  • On the back of the online pass in the Battlefield 3 case, there was a possible teaser for a new Medal of Honor game. This was later revealed to be Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
  • Battlefield 3 is considered illegal to own or sell in Iran due to the game's portrayal of U.S. forces invading the country, though, even with the ban, it is still a very popular game with many Iranians.
  • On April 2012, Tomas Danko, the voiceover producer for Battlefield 3, hinted of an easter egg that could only be heard when a player on the US side has spotted a mobile AA vehicle from a certain distance.
  • The easter egg was finally found on July 2013 by a YouTube commentator named "JackFrags", who took a set of audio files containing:
    vo_us_mp_comrose_spotted_dave_r # # #.wav
    The audio files refer to an enemy "Goldfarb" being spotted. This is a reference to a former DICE employee named David Goldfarb, who was the story writer for Battlefield 3.[30]
