It’s was another great week for Battlefield 3, filled with some features, new information, and even some quirkier stories from around the web, so let’s get started in this brand new installment of Battlefield Highlights of last Week!
We kicked things off this week by showing a quick glimpse of what We’ll be bringing to Germany when we head off to GamesCom next week. We’re pulling out all the stops to make sure Battlefield 3 has a great showing at the convention, and to add a little razzle dazzle, we’re bringing out one of the most requested elements of the game: Jets. That’s right, we’re setting up a MiG-21 jet (as seen in the video above) as part of the booth. Just the tip of the iceberg…
We continued the week with a brand new installment of the Battlefield 3 Battleblog, this time focusing on the foundations of Battlefield gameplay. We sat down with Senior Designer Alan Kertz to talk about some of the fine points found in the Battlefield gameplay, and it makes for one of the best installments to the Battleblog yet. In it, we discuss weapon handling, authenticity, and variety in the gameplay, making it something that you simply can’t miss. Want to catch up?

Wired.com’s Danger Room posted an interesting article earlier this week dealing with combat outfits found in military forces around the world. Not only does it showcase some of the various strategies seen around the world, it’s plain ol’ fascinating to see various takes on practical military garb. As a matter of fact, we can’t help but notice a few similarities between some outfits from BFBC2 and the French FELIN suit (pictured above). Read the full story here.
