Aside from the mention of the Frostbite 2 engine and the teaser trailer, information on Battlefield 3 since the announcement has been very scarce. As a correction to my last post about it, Battlefield 3 will be released this fall. Also, here's some more information. Senior Game Designer ALan Kertz has taken to twitter to answer fan question. A real-time radiosity demo (lighting demo) from the Frostbite 2 engine can be watched here. Again, pre-orders can be made here. From Britain's GAME:
