Watch the guys from DICE tag team some urban warfare

Unless you've just awoken from a coma, you know that this fall is slated with huge releases just about every week or two. For many gamers, no game is more eagerly anticipated than Battlefield 3. Along with a compelling campaign and tactical multiplayer, BF3 also promises a new co-op campaign which will have you and a friend squadmate performing objectives in levels separate from the single-player story.

At Gamescom, DICE was able to showcase a bit of this co-op gameplay on an urban map, alternating between humvee-filled streets and narrow alleyways.

The presenters also revealed that the co-op mode, like the multiplayer modes, would be compatible with their stat-tracker, Battlelog. Using Battlelog for co-op will allow players to compare scores with friends and the rest of the world to try and beat their times, as well as track their own performance.

With the footage were some more beautiful screenshots of Battlefield 3 to tease anxious fans even more.

Sory not interested in the co-op mode at all. It seems like it is going to be like the onslaught mode from Bad Co. wich was a huge disapointment. I would take zombies over this anyday Mr. Maury.

The screen shots look good, but, I thought the gameplay is supposed to look better than MW3?

i wish people would get it through their thick skulls that you don't only need to like one fucking game, you don't have to say one game is better than the other, especially when they are meant to be completely different

not that much better. the alpha was on high settings when i played it on pc. ps3 does not look too much different. "60fps" is only needed on pc. consoles work fine at 30fsp. the only noticable difference is less particle effects in the air. so less smoke and dust. most else is the same clap

ohhhhh you mean the co-op video is pc? they said ps3 and they are using ps3 controllers. that's console baby dance

I think anyone expecting to see some of the amazing looking graphics demoed already on top of the range pcs are going to be a tad dissapointed on release day to say the least. The ps3 graphics looked ok, nothing amazing. Co-op will be fun for a bit.

This will be a definite purchase for me as will MW3 but at the moment only the latter is pre-ordered!
