Battlefield 3 Media CoverAs one of the most anticipated games released by EA (Electronic Arts), Battlefield 3 sets itself apart from its rivals with a great story-line and game play.

Plot

Set in 2014, SSgt Blackburn leads a five-man squad on a mission to locate, find and safely return a US squad investigating a possible IED, whose last known position was a market controlled by a hostile militia called the PLR. Blackburn and his squad are later sent to Tehran to apprehend a the leader of the PLR, Al-Bashir. While investigating an underground vault in the target’s suspected location, Blackburn and his team learn that the PLR acquired Russian portable nuclear devices, and that two of the three devices are missing. Being overrun, and requesting back-up, an M1 Abrams convoy led by Sergeant Miller is deployed to extract Blackburn’s team. Miller facilitates Blackburn’s helicopter extraction, but is captured when waiting for a Quick Reaction Force. Miller is promptly executed by Solomon and Al-Bashir, with the event being filmed.

Later, Blackburn and his squad manage to capture Al-Bashir, who realizes Solomon betrayed him and reveals his plot to detonate the nukes in Paris and New York, before dying from the wounds he sustained in his capture. Blackburn’s team also gets a lead on an arms dealer, Kaffarov, who was working with Solomon; however, while pursuing Kaffarov, the Americans encounter a large Russian force, who are also attempting to apprehend Kaffarov and are hostile towards the Americans. Almost all of Blackburn’s squad is killed, while a Spetsnaz team led by Dima assaults Kaffarov’s villa. Dima successfully interrogates Kaffarov, and reveals Solomon’s plot to Blackburn. Blackburn’s commanding officer arrives and to save Dima’s life and let him escape, Blackburn shoots his CO. Due to this, Blackburn is captured and interrogated by agents within the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and explains all of his previous operations to them in flashbacks. During Blackburn’s capture, Dima attempts to stop the attack in Paris, but he is unsuccessful and his team is wounded in the resulting detonation. The CIA agents do not believe Blackburn’s story, since Solomon is a CIA informant and there is no concrete proof of his involvement in the terrorist attacks. They instead believe that Russia is responsible for the attacks and that Dima had played Blackburn.

To avoid spoiling the ending of the story-line, we have left out the last portion of the quote from EA for our readers–no sense in ruining, right? Battlefield 3′s system requirements are a bit steep for the average “Joe”, but after doing some reading on Frostbite 2–it became quite apparent.
