E3 2011 Daily Recap: Tuesday
E3 2011 kicked off with a bang, as this is the very first time we’ve shown multiplayer from Battlefield 3. Not only that, we presented the fully playable multiplayer mode Operation Metro, where a team of U.S. Marines must fight their way through various objectives in order to complete their mission. Players finally got to see what all the fuss is about, and we’re glad to report they’re ecstatic.
It seems that several members of the press agree with the fan reaction - it’s only day one and Battlefield 3 already has eight nominations for Best of E3 awards! The fine folks at dice have received nominations from media outlets such as IGN.com, GameSpot.com, Game Informer, GamePro, PC Gamer, Games Radar, and more, and we’re thrilled by these honors.
If that’s not enough, the Battlefield 3 crew went live, providing you with hours of streaming Battlefield goodness, hosted by Mark Christianson of OffDutyGamers.com. We provided you some behind the scenes looks, some excellent interviews, and some fan reactions, as they play the game, giving you an insight to Battlefield 3 not available anywhere else. Were you unable to catch the live stream? Did you already see it and want to see it again? Good news: You can still see it on Ustream.tv/Battlefield3! Part One is below.
It’s also extremely important to us that you, our fans are enjoying the game as well. While at the EA Press Conference on Monday, we managed to track down a few members of our exceptional community to see what they thought of Battlefield 3. Would you like to see what your peers had to say? Take a look at the video below.
