Never Fight Alone With Battlefield 3 Platoons

Wars are fought by soldiers but are won by teamwork. Coordination and communication are critical to success on the field of battle. Battlefield 3's detailed Battlelog makes it easy to organize and track the progress of your closest in-game allies with the Platoon system.

Platoons are the evolution of gaming clans and allow you to monitor vital statistics of every member's progress. Accessible on console, web, and mobile platforms, it provides an array of useful features for improving your game. Track your Platoon's aggregated stats to see which weapons your teammates are most accurate with and monitor their vehicular performance across land, sea, and air.

In addition to fresh details on the Platoon system, the latest Battleblog post features a video with DICE Executive Producer Patrick Bach and Battlelog Producer Fredrik Löving in which they talk about how Battlelog will revolutionize the way you play. You can explore Battlelog and a selection of the Platoon features currently available right now by joining the Battlefield 3 open beta.

This latest entry in the critically acclaimed Battlefield franchise combines intense infantry combat with a wide range of vehicles on sprawling maps filled with destructible environments. Battlefield 3 comes out October 25th, so pre-order your copy of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition on Origin today to receive the Physical Warfare pack and other awesome exclusives.

      They will have some time before release to Iron out some of these issues , most probably, so hold on a bit longer and be a little patient til then, cause it's kinda like tryna rush the birth of a baby along. It usually takes 9 months for development reasons, in that case ,and any earlier can cause troubles. Give this game a Few More Weeks(official release date) before you pass judgement lol :)

    Great game and @QuagmiresLegacy Its a beta, look at the engine/gameplay for what you like. Not the glitches.

    found the multiplayer beta very frustrating so far. very difficult to see your enemy before its to late(im very experienced in most fps). i really hope that when the alpha software is released all the glitches will be cleaned up cus this game is definately a contender to be the best out there

    Enjoy the game so far only thing I hate is the flashlight and laser sights. It's annoying when im across the map and scope in to shoot someone and all I see is a light blinding the crap out of me.
