The trailer doesn't depict much, as to be expected from a teaser trailer. The game appears to be in a present time setting going by the vehicles in the trailer. The game is scheduled for a "fall 2011" release and preorders are being taken currently at BATTLEFIELD.com You can follow battlefield on twitter at TWITTER.COM/BATTLEFIELD Or 'Like' the page on facebook at FACEBOOK.COM/BATTLEFIELD Of course I am just getting all of this from the trailer as not much else is known about the game. Source. What I find interesting is the game is now an 18/mature whereas bad company 2 was a 16. More realistic combat effects? Or tightening laws on violence maybe. I doubt it will compete with CoD, once a game has a stranglehold on the public like that it will be difficult to get a dent in the market.
