Titanfall

Since the "Medal of Honor" series was unceremoniously "taken out of the rotation" earlier this year, Electronic Arts will be relying on the "Titanfall," "Battlefield," and "Star Wars: Battlefront" franchises to go toe-to-toe with Activision's yearly "Call of Duty" games.

Are you ready for more Battlefield 3? While the game made quite a splash when it launched last year, EA has only released one update for the game in the form of the "Back to Karkand" DLC for the game that featured four Battlefield 2 maps updated and remade using the new Frostbite 2 engine, along with 10 new weapons, four new vehicles, and new achievements/trophies. That came out in December of last year, roughly two months after the game was released.

Last night at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco, EA held a joint event with both DICE and Danger Close to announce new things. Danger Close will be releasing a new Medal of Honor game entitled Medal of Honor: Warfighter this October, while DICE announced three new DLC packs for Battlefield 3 coming this year, the first of which is "Close Quarters" available this June. That pack introduces four new small maps meant to highlight tight infantry fighting, along with 10 new weapons that can be brought into "vanilla" Battlefield 3.

This fall, two military-shooter juggernauts will face off for your – or your awesome grandma's – holiday dollars. Both Activision's "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" and EA's "Battlefield 3" are worthy contenders, but in the end, one title will likely draw the most sales. Fans of the genre are well aware that Microsoft have paid, we assume, quite handsomely for the right to timed exclusives in regards to ever-popular "Call of Duty" downloadable-content. PlayStation 3 and PC players have waited a month longer to receive the same map packs.

Well, EA is looking to stake their own console exclusivity claim, thanks to a deal with Sony. "Battlefield 3" downloadable-content will come to the PlayStation 3 one week before other platforms.

A couple weeks ago in Cologne, Germany, EA and DICE showed off a few minutes of co-op mode in "Battlefield 3." The "Exfiltration" mission had the two-player team escorting a political defector out of hostile territory, and while it didn't appear to reinvent the wheel, the mode certainly looks like a lot of fun. Writing on the PlayStation Blog this morning, DICE junior product manager Tommy Rydling shared a few more details on what to expect in October.

Battlefield 3

EA really wants their new digital distribution service, Origin, to succeed. The service's most anticipated release, "Battlefield 3," is coming exclusively to Origin, and EA is doing everything in its power to ensure that people pick up the game there instead of from retailers. Thus far, EA has rewarded those who pre-order on Origin with in-game items and access to the upcoming beta for "Battlefield 3." Seems they're taking it one step further, now.
