We’ve all seen gameplay video’s of the soldiers running and shooting but we haven’t seen much Jet gameplay! Well, this is to make up for that: a few minutes of bombing, shooting and maneuvering throught the impressive widespread Caspian Border map, achieved by the Frostbite 2.0 game engine.

Server browers are not common on consoles, but fortunately Battlefield 3 for consoles, will be getting a server browser. Most games on consoles have a “click-to-play” take on online gaming, a match is found based off the user’s latency (connection to the server.) PC gamers have enjoyed the freedoms of server browsers for over a decade and all past PC Battlefields have come with them. Also noted today was that Battlefield 3 PC players will find servers through EA’s Origin server. This style of server joining is quite similar to Steam.
Wikipedia over server browsers:
“Typically, game server browsers retrieve a list of game servers from a master server, measure lag and packet loss between the browser and the game servers, and retrieve server details, such as current players and gameplay rules. This information can be filtered, sorted and displayed and is used to launch and connect a game from the list.
Optionally many game server browsers also support tracking and searching of players, both in- and out-of-game forums, chat and voice communication, advertising for events and management of game servers.”
This news is also confirmed by the official Battlefield Twitter feed.
