Another great week is on the record books here on team Battlefield, filled with news, awards and great new info on Battlefield 3. All that and more in this week’s Battlefield Highlights of the Week!




A new installment to the Battleblog went live on Thursday, with a focus on weapon customization. In the blog, the entire weapons progression and customization system was explained, showing you how you can equip your weapon to suit your personal playstyle, as well as how to unlock these new pieces of gear. If you’re curious about how weapons will be used in Battlefield 3, this is the post for you. Read the entire installment of Battleblog #8 right here.


While at GamesCom 2011 in Cologne, Germany, Battlefield 3 garnered a lot of attention, so the fine folks at DICE created a definitive rundown of Battlefield 3 at GamesCom. The Battlefield 3 booth was the single biggest setup DICE has ever had, making for an extraordinary experience. At one point, there was a projected 12 hour wait to play Battlefield 3, with the line stretching across the entire hall of the show floor. Along with that, this post has all the awards, news and exclusive interviews seen for BF3, making it something not to miss. Take a look at the video below for a taste of what to expect, and to read the full blog post detailing all of the awesome activity from GamesCom, you can read the full post right here.



While at Evoke 2011, DICE’s own Kenny Magnusson held a seminar talking about some of the finer points of the Frostbite 2 game engine. In his seminar, Magnusson went into deep detail talking about some of the technical aspects of the engine, specifically, the visual elements. There’s quite a bit to talk about when it comes to rendering and lighting capabilities in the engine, and Kenny covered a huge piece of the tech side of things, covering particle lighting, dynamic radiosity, and high dynamic range, making for a fascinating and seminar that gives some excellent insight to the game development process.

XboxDailyNews reports this week that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has taken over the UK Xbox sales charts, as it has jumped from the six spot to be the top selling Xbox game in the UK! We’re incredibly excited about this news, and you can rest assured that the best is yet to come!
