Battlefield 3 Strategy Guide Product Details
Released on TBD
In Battlefield 3, there is no all-purpose class or weapon capable of dealing with every threat you face during online combat. Therefore, you must analyze the threat and choose the appropriate tools for defeating it by selecting your class and customizing your soldier's load out. Stating on page 19, all classes and weapons are covered in detail, including unlock criteria for each. Each class also has special equipment capable of giving your team a big advantage. Deployment tactics for each specialized piece of equipment are discussed, helping you get the most out of your gear.
Fight on land, sea, or air!
What sets Battlefield apart from the crowd are the vehicles. Battlefield 3 doesn't disappoint, providing a wide mix of light vehicles, IFVs, tanks, helicopters and jets. New to Battlefield 3 are vehicle unlocks. Each vehicle type has its own unlock progression allowing you to customize your ride with new upgrades, gadgets, and weapons. Flip ahead to page 54 to begin reading-up on every vehicle, complete with unlock details and vital game play tips for each.
Plan your attack!
Knowing the lay of the land gives any soldier an upper hand. In Battlefield 3 there are nine multiplayer maps each supporting six game modes, including Conquest, Conquest 64, Rush, Squad Rush, Squad Death match, and Team Death match. Spanning nearly 200 pages (starting on page 72) the multiplayer maps section is huge, covering every map and game mode in detail. The labelled maps show the locations of every flag, M-COM station, and vehicle spawn point. Breakdowns of every control point, zone, and M-COM station are also provided, discussing attack and defend tactics as well as revealing the respawn times for vehicles at each location.
Find the path to victory!
When you're not busy roaming the battlefield with your squad, try tackling the challenging co-op missions with a friend or dive into the intense single-player campaign. There are six co-op missions waiting to put your combat and teamwork skills to the test. To survive each mission you must leverage every piece of equipment at your disposal while working together. The Co-Op section (page 266) offers a detailed walkthrough of each mission, helping you defeat the onslaught of hostile forces. A comprehensive walkthrough of the single-player campaign (page 290) is also provided. In addition to covering crucial gameplay tactics, both the co-op and campaign sections offer tips on where, when, and how to earn the achievements and trophies associated with each mode.
The spoils of war!
Regardless of the game mode, there are plenty of rewards awaiting you in Battlefield 3. The Battlefield Compendium (page 338) is your one-stop quick reference source for every unlock, award, achievement, and trophy. The criteria for every multiplayer rank, ribbon, medal, and dog tag is covered as well as their associated unlocks. The multiplayer scoring system is also listed, helping you determine which actions net you the most points.

This comes after the official Twitter page of Battlefield 3 confirmed EA has not bundled multiplayer shooter Battlefield 1943 in with the latest title.
However, second-placed Uncharted 3 was still able to generate massive numbers of its own, recording the 11th best PlayStation 3 launch ever, while far exceeding the debut of 2009's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
Battlefield 3 may have only just gone on sale, but the president of Electronic Arts has confirmed that fourth game in the series is forthcoming.
Speaking as part of a keynote speech at the University of California, Frank Gibeau said here will be a Battlefield 4 His comments were swiftly Tweeted around the world by eager attendees. An EA spokesperson later clarified the comment for IGN, saying rank was speaking broadly about the Battlefield brand - a brand that EA is deeply passionate about and a fan community that EA is committed to./p>
Not that there was ever much doubt that the series would continue. Battlefield 3 is the fastest selling game in EA's long and illustrious history, shifting over five million copies in the weeks since its launch.
The questions now are whether this will be a true Battlefield sequel, or a continuation of the spin-off Bad Company series, and whether it will appear on the current generation of console hardware, or be designed for whatever Sony and Microsoft have up their sleeves.
Battlefield 3 is on sale now, for Xbox 360, PC and PS3.
Speaking to investors, Nintendo has offered its first confirmation that its new Wii U console will launch in all major markets - including the UK - for Christmas 2012. The console, first revealed at E3 last year, was already pencilled in for a 2012 release, but it was unclear if that only referred to Japan.
The console is an evolution of the existing Wii, with far more graphical power, HD graphics and an innovative new tablet controller which works together with the Wii remote. The console was shown off again at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, and will be the centrepiece of Nintendo's presence at E3 in June.
As for software, a new Super Smash Bros game is known to be in development while Legend of Zelda has been used for some demonstrations. Exclusive Wii U versions of smash hits such as Batman: Arkham City, Ghost Recon, Battlefield, Assassin's Creed and Darksiders also feature in the console's confirmed line up.
So that's the Christmas shopping sorted nice and early then.
Swedish developer DICE is best known these days for the hugely popular Battlefield series, but it seems the studio hopes that won't always be the case. In an interview with Official Xbox Magazine, Patrick Soderlund, vice president of DICE owner EA Games, was asked if it was important for DICE to have the security of Battlefield's success as a way of investing in less mainstream projects.
"Maybe it is and maybe it isn't," Soderlund replied. "It's also important for us - the DICE guys are roughly 300 people in the Stockholm studio; not all of them are working on Battlefield things, and that's intentional, because we don't want to become a Battlefield factory. The minute we start saying 'you're going to make a Battlefield game for the rest of your life', they're going to go some place else."
"For them to make great Battlefield games there need to be other things for them to do as well. That's why we have people who move around quite a bit. And then obviously we have a boatload of people that just want to make Battlefield because they love it."
DICE is currently hard at work on Battlefield 4, slated for release some time before March 2014. The studio has reassured fans that the launch of a new game in the series won't affect support for Battlefield 3, which gains its latest map pack - Aftermath - next week.
