The majority of the footage is still taken from the "Fault Line" location, but there are a few new scenes here and there, possibly teasing at the 12 minute full-length trailer to be released tomorrow. EA plans to unveil said trailer during the FA Cup semi-final.
Additionally, DICE commented on the console versions of Battlefield 3, stating that they are pushing the Xbox 360 and PS3 to their technical limits. DICE executive producer Patrick Bach asserted in an interview with ComputerAndVideoGames that Battlefield 3 would be "if not the best-looking console game this year, up there with the competition," and that also stated that DICE's intention is to "prove it rather than talk about it."
Bach also added that Battlefield 3 on the consoles has been pushed to the "absolute limit." When asked about the next generation of consoles, the DICE executive producer replied, "I don't know what the big corporations are thinking but definitely we are desperate to move on into the next generation. I think Battlefield 3 will look like a next-generation game and all the technology we're building, the whole Frostbite 2 system - the animations, audio, everything - is trying to aim for a couple of years in the future, rather than looking at what we have today.
"We are already there. If [Microsoft or Sony] were to release a new console tomorrow, the engine would scale onto that platform, because we have been looking at not only the PC technology today but also speculating what will happen tomorrow when it comes to these things. So everything from our streaming technologies [to] rendering technologies is scalable onto future platforms."
