As an interesting set piece for the Battlefield 3 booth at Gamescom, EA had a jet brought from Berlin to Cologne. Transportation of the MiG-21 cost in the low five-figure range in Euros. Probably still cheaper than the jet fuel cost of flying it the 400 kilometers.
Built on the cutting-edge Frostbite 2 technology, Battlefield 3 aspires to be DICE's best shooter and biggest launch yet. Expect improved graphics, louder explosions and more smithereens. So many smithereens.
