PS3 movie: Battlefield 3's opening mission

Soldiers on a train

Battlefield 3 is on sale in North America today, with its European launch set for this Friday.


For those of you who don't want the opening mission spoiled, now's the time to look away.

For those that don't mind, we've captured the full first mission on PS3 at 720p. It shows the player jumping from a bridge to the top of a high speed train that's been overrun by bad guys. The player's objective is to get to the engine and stop the train.
