They have gone into detail about the classes. Nothing we didn't really already know. Assault plays the role of the medic. Engineer is about the same as always. Support class is back, with a bipod that is supposedly able to be placed anywhere, and has a new suppressing fire mechanic. Recon is about the same, although if the picture is anything to go by, the ghillie suit is gone.

That's cool, I hope they'll have spotting on HC this time around, that was the only drawback to it in my opinion.

I think the snipers are going to be a pain in the ass in this game now that prone is back. It will probably be balanced by the fact that it takes them a short while to get back up from prone. If they could move around with any sort of speed in prone I will rage. It would make them to annoying and a hassle to deal with.

I never stop moving unless I am taking cover in BC2 anyways. I learned quickly that people who stand steal get their brains blown out.

DICE is taking a few precautions against snipers. For one, scope sway is back. So it won't be the point and shoot bullshit from BC2. Also, scopes will reflect light. So camping snipers will have a nice little glint of light coming from their scope, making them easy to see.

And since the ghillie suit is gone, they will be easier to see.

Sway plus bullet drop sounds obnoxious. Which is good considering the overload of snipers in BC2 who sit back miles away and don't even help the team. When I was a sniper I actually had my scope on the objective 90% of the time. That way when they come to disarm the bomb they get capped.

Whats wrong with a bipod? no run an gunning lmgs. Bipod it, and gain suppressing fire points and cover your team.

I'm also guessing support people will probably be the ones who resupply ammo now, seeing as how soldier and medic have been combined, and since the medics will be handing out first aid and reviving, chances are quite good they're not going to be handing out ammo as well on top of all that.

Really? That's a pretty cool detail, and useful as well!

the ghillie suit is gone

Considering Bad Company 2 is my most played game right now I really can't wait for Battlefield 3 and that multiplayer trailer looks pretty cool. At first I thought the subway was it's own map until I realised that you can go up to the street level as well. I think that's really cool for some reason.

A war author and former SAS operative has written a book with DICE titled Battlefield 3. It will go on sale on amazon and barnes & noble later this year. He is also the war realism adviser to DICE.

Looks to me like it's one of those smaller 16x16 player maps. Still looks awesome despite the smaller map. Still, I'm really more geared toward the 64x64 player maps. It's been a long time since I've played BF2 and I miss that kind of massive, large scale warfare.

Well, there won't be any modding, so that kind throws PC out the window, unless that's where a majority of your chums play. And I think 360 has more of a competitive community than the Ps3 if that's what you're into.

If your computer can handle it, PC. If not, get it on the console. That's essentially the way it is with pretty much every game that goes on multiple platforms.

Setting graphics and visual performance aside, I simply prefer to aim with a mouse than a control stick. There are plenty of times when I get killed in Battlefield Bad Company 2 for the XBox 360 simply because of a control stick aiming issue. If the sensitivity is too low, people seem to run out of your aiming range or you can't turn around fast enough, but if the sensitivity is too high, precision aiming becomes a joke and seems impossible to line up your crosshairs with your target. To me, it feels impossible to get it just right with a perfect balance, whereas with a mouse, it's much more precise at a much quicker pace.

I think all the movement issues in the console version of Bad Company 2 will be gone in Battlefield 3... I hope they are...

I'm purchasing on the console because my PC can't handle the game, but also because my friends will be playing on the Xbox.

Same here, there was nothing quite like circling the enemy base with your friend piloting a Blackhawk and shooting everything you see.

As well as helping your friend snipe by acting as a spotter, this game with friends is probably my favorite online experience.

What issues are you talking about? I have BC2 and I haven't had any problem moving around so far I think.

Not exactly issues, but most PC players complained about the console version (which makes total sense, I know). Just watch some gameplay of Bad Company 2 on PC and you can already see the difference in the movement. It's smoother and looks like it's easier to get around.
