Battlefield 3 vs. Call of Duty: Frostbite 2.0 vs. Popularity

By Chris Cook - Mar 10, 2011

In the build up to the new and what looks to be improved episode in the Battlefield series, Battlefield 3 we have been able to bring you a fair bit of news regarding its graphics. The FPS is now finding itself as a hot contender to take the crown from the current FPS King Call of Duty with its latest installment being Black Ops.

The Call of Duty franchise has dominated the games market for years now, every new title selling more units from launch than the last. With its continued success this year, however disappointing some may say Black Ops is, there’s no doubt its next title will be hugely popular also. Though this year it will find itself up against a worthy opponent.

In an article by Dawna Wood over at Cnet’s gaming blog site Crave Battlefield 3’s new Frostbite 2.0 engine is being compared with the popularity of the Call of Duty franchise. The new engine will debut with the release of Battlefield 3 and promises enhanced in-game destruction with Destruction 3.0 and will take full advantage of its 64-bit processors and DirectX 11 API. From what we’ve seen so far it is living up to its promises.

Will the graphics of Battlefield 3 be enough is enough to take the top spot for best FPS game or will the reputation of Call of Duty’s fluidity in gameplay and popularity be enough to stand its own?

      … what are you saying?

      Just say you like Battlefield, and try avoiding to rage on something that I can't make out from your phrases.

      WTF are you on drugs Ma'am! first cod is utter sh!t and you should know that. i played campers on duty and have to say that battlefield graphics, sounds, maps, almost everything beats camp on duty modern tents and black opps. the only part that cod did beat was singleplayer. you should thank battlefield or else you wouldn't have a modern warfare game and the level system in cod. by modern warfare 2 i mean modded warfail 2.

    The thing is, most gamers nowadays who are willing to buy a game for online entertainment will be willing to buy both. since bc2 i have come to love battlefield and wont buy cod, but the majority still will…
