Battlefield 3 is set to release in October, and you can check out the box art and release date after the jump.

The fight is on! DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ: ERTS), today announced that Battlefield 3TM, the next installment in the internationally acclaimed Battlefield series, will be available on October 25, 2011. After three years of development, the spectacular new game leaps ahead of the competition thanks to the unique power of the Frostbite TM 2 game engine. The technology advances the state of the art, and serves as the power center that allows Battlefield 3 to deliver superior performance in character animation, visual rendering, audio/sound and physical destruction. Battlefield 3 is the only FPS in the marketplace using Frostbite 2, and the only shooter capable of making the gameplay experience feel alive with all the sights, sounds, movements and action of real-world incursions. Fans eager to jump into battle can join the multi-platform beta in September 2011.
