Nvidia will be hosting a Battlefield 3 LAN event aboard the USS Hornet. The event will take place from the 14th-16th in Alameda, California. Participants will most likely play on a huge map with 64 players and vehicles(Caspian Border). The USS Hornet is an aircraft carrier notorious for "paranormal activites" and those attending will be allowed to sleep within the ship and explore the lower decks.

Kotaku was given a sneak peek of Operation Guillotine which is part of the Battlefield 3 campaign. The mission is believed to be at the halfway point of the entire campaign. The mission takes place in Tehran, Iran at night. The player is ordered to capture an apartment block.There are many obstacles and enemies in the way which leads to chaos and confusion. The developers, wanting to keep things secret, did not reveal the length of the campaign or the entire detail of the mission. It appears that the mission is quite linear yet feels wide open from the details of the article.

I don't know if someone already posted a blog about this so I'm sorry if another user has made one. I'm starting to worry that this game will not be Battlefield 3, but rather it will be Battlefield: Bad Company 3. Many of the features from Battlefield 2 are missing or not confirmed in Battlefield 3.
Commander mode has been confirmed to not return and this will result in less cohesiveness between squads. The commander was the player responsible for organizing and directing all players into battle. The commander also controlled many of the team's assets such as supplies, artillery, and UAV. Without a commander, the cooperation in many of the main Battlefield titles will vanish.
Mod tools are also confirmed to not return as the developers state…Read more >
I've been hearing a rumor about a bill in Congress that proposes any streaming of illegal content that infringes copyright will be considered a felony. I'm not entirely sure if this is true at all but can any of you look further into it? The bill seems to mention videogames as well and you cannot upload footage, coverage, or gameplay without the consent of the owner. If this does happen, then IGN, GameSpot, NextGenTactics, GamerSpawn, Mahalo, Machinima, and etc. would go out of business. It would also probably cause a further decline in the videogame industry. I believe the reactions to this so far in general have been negative and is fueling controversy in some places. I'm sorry if this is off topic but can someone please confirm this?Read more >
