Over on the tek-9.org forums, a user by the name of 'GOLD.i3DGwendoline' is now your best friend. They've leaked some Battlefield 3 screenshots from an 'Alpha Trial' of Battlefield 3, as well as some brand new information regarding graphics and gameplay. It's all below. Remember, those are early-build multiplayer screenshots, which we're very keen to point out won't be representative of the final game (don't get your panties in a twist, folks). However, DICE have a lot of work to do; they've said before that there should be no difference between online and offline graphics. The user also left some insightful new details, though we're a bit doubtful about the fact Graphic Detail was set to 'high': "At first, The game says I need nvidia driver 275.35, while the last one is 275.33. So maybe there will be more graphic options when it is enabled... The only options I could change where resolution, which I took 1680x1024. Graphic Detail: High" - Maps looks good. - Graphic settings is bugged, probably since the recommended driver version is not yet released. - Very low recoil, tough there is bulletspread. - Bullets bounce off metal. - Surround sound is REALLY good, the sound of the rockets that flew by my head made me smile, explosions are really nice, a good deep drum. - You can see your own legs when you look down, tough your weapon will stick thru your own leg... =x - You do not walk fully silent when crouching. - Infinite sprint. - Tank can swim and jump (funny bug rofl)" And in case you wanted to know what sort of machine could run that at 510 FPS: "AMD PhenomII 965 @ 4.5Gghz 4x2048MB DDR3-2133Mhz 2x 80GB Intel X-25 SSD on an Areca RAID controller. 1x GTX460, little bit clocked."[/p] Source You can get to the leaked screens via the source link above too. The game is looking pretty good and those specs aren't monstrously high which is nice. I'm really looking forward to this game, Steam or no Steam!
