Preview of Operation Firestorm & Grand Bazaar

Coming from our friends at BattlefieldO via IGN, early this morning. Two new never-before-seen Battlefield 3 Multiplayer maps that are currently being showcased at Igormir, which is essentially the Russian version of the E3 Gaming Convention. It is also interesting to note that both videos, while not mentioned, are showcasing the final build of Battlefield 3. So it's safe to say, by comparison, it amazing what DICE can do in a month.
