Despite prior rumors, EA confirmed that there will not be a
pre-release Battlefield 3 demo. This rumor began when Patrick Bach told MSXbox-World that an
early Battlefield 3 demo would be released. It made sense, since EA is
positioning Battlefield 3 to be a Call of Duty killer, and a pre-release demo
would be a fine way to lure Call of Duty regulars to try out Battlefield in the fall
while waiting for the next installment of Activision’s juggernaut. Bach did not
specifically call out a demo, but answered positively to a question about a
demo, not giving any details on gameplay. An EA spokesperson has said that Patrick Bach, when telling MSXbox-World of a pre-release demo, was actually referring to the multiplayer beta.
The only details available on Battlefield 3’s features are the inclusions of a single-player campaign and an online multiplayer mode, the latter of which can be played with up to 64 players on the PC version. There will also be a co-op mode allowing multiple players to play through the campaign. Battlefield 3 is slated for a Fall 2011 release date, and will be released for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
