In life, there are games that mark the spirits with gameplay presentations that drop jaws, this was the case of Battlefield 3 during the GDC in March … 2011. A game released a few months later on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, a time when 720p 30fps was commonplace on console.

First of all, let’s start with some visual and musical nostalgia with the launch trailer for the game dvoil at the end of 2011, a time when 4K did not exist on YouTube, you know.

Maybe yes, because commercially all the editors know that one should never underestimate the power of nostalgia, especially since a portage requiring almost no work is an opportunity far too good to be. lack.
