Battlefield 3 takes shot at MW3 with free social portal

EA is getting ready to unload details on both the single- and multiplayer portions of Battlefield 3, and it isn't above taking a few potshots at its competitor, Modern Warfare 3.

A post from the game's official blog touted the ability of the Frostbite 2 engine to provide both large-scale battles and close combat. "Gamers will experience a physical battlefield and be able to temporarily disable vehicles, go prone, mount weapons, lay down suppressive fire and more. Under the hood, the brand-new engine ensures cutting-edge visuals and immersion," Karl Magnus Troedsson, the general manager of DICE, wrote.

There will also be a new online portal that will offer much of what Elite will be offering, with an important difference. "Battlelog also lets you manage your friends lists, squad up, create platoons, use voice chat and follow your friends’ progress in real-time, and more," Troedsson explained. "Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)... zero dollars."

What won't we see at E3? Team deathmatch and the co-op campaign, for starters, but you can't have everything all at once. We have our appointment locked in to play the game, and I'll be able to report directly on whether this is the best game ever, or the bestest game ever.
