Football Superstars Enlisted For Battlefield 3: Operation Gridiron

Electronic Arts is teaming up with some of football's top players for an exclusive military reality show. Battlefield 3: Operation Gridiron will take these all-stars out of the red zone and into simulated combat zones.

Quarterback Drew Brees, linebacker Clay Mathews, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, and defensive end Jared Allen will trade their cleats for combat boots in a top secret location. There the four footballers will receive advanced training from some of the most elite Special Operations Warriors in the world. They'll get pushed to the limit as they prepare for a live simulated operation inspired by the intense combat scenarios featured in Battlefield 3.

Weekly webisodes of Battlefield 3: Operation Gridiron will air Tuesdays at 9AM PDT on the Battlefield Facebook page starting today, Tuesday, October 4th.  The finale will air on Spike TV on October 24th at 12AM EST/PDT and at 11PM CST.
