[VIDEO] Battlefield 3 has bomb disposal, earthquakes, punching dudes in the face

Earlier this month, I suggested Battlefield 3 has what it takes to out-spectacle the spectacle that is Call of Duty. This trailer has only left me more convinced.

Some of these battles are looking pretty epic, with numerous combatants scooting about at once. There’s bomb disposal and some face-meet-fist-now-knee-meet-face action. More than anything, however, Battlefield 3 continues to ooze atmosphere. The feeling that you’re part of something far bigger: this game captures that.

Also, a tip: stick around right to the end of this latest trailer to watch an earthquake rip an entire street to pieces beneath your character’s feet. There’s a 12-minute video planned for April 17th.
