For its time all Battlefield games have looked amazing and it looks like Battlefield 3 will not disappoint. The Frostbite 2 engine will actually debut with the launch of Battlefield 3. Using DirectX11, 64-bit processors, and Destruction 3.0 the game will definitely be mind blowing. Destruction 3.0 allows for the destruction of buildings in a way never seen before. The destruction in frostbite 2 is way better than Frostbite 1.5 from BF2.

From what is known so far Battlefield 3 will include the UH-1Y, SU-37/SU-34, F-18, M1A2 LAV-25, Blackhawk, Humvee, and the Littlebird. The Battlefield 3 tanks especially look really good. Based on some in-game footage shown at E3, the tanks look to have a more dynamic and fun role. One of the main improvements is the ability to hold your own against an air assault.
