      Rumor is that today we will get a new trailer that is more 'battlefieldish'. Should be exciting, sounds like this will be the real kick off for the game.

      Also I think the thread is appropriate as it is about a specific event at gamescon that the title mentions and quickly informs people about what is happening.

                According to the chat monitor, BF3 won't be shown till the end. (typical)

                Also gametrailers noted we will get a live coop demonstration and a new multiplayer trailer.

                        Demoed a 2-player co-op which is also playable on the trade show floor.
                        Demoed some sort of combined night/thermal vision.
                        This was a demoed on Sony Playstation
                        Wow there is a lot of aim correction on consoles :-D

                        Showed a trailer for 64-player conquest on a map called Caspian Border which is also playable on the trade show floor.
                        * It looked like at least 2 if not 3 jets per side as well as rocket helos
                        * There looks to be some sort of ground drone similar to the ones you would see disabling IEDs
                        * It also showed the HUD for the rocket helo gunner
                        * It looks like the RPG might have unlocks (scope, etc.) similar to BC2 primary weapons. Hopefully because having just the irons might suck
                        * SCAR L and SCAR H (throwback to BF2:SF). Don't know if the vertical foregrip is a gadget.
                        * Aimpoints, Trijicon ACOGs, and Trijicon Reflex seems to be gadgets (good lord why on the Reflex? ...perhaps to be washed out by the dazzler)
                        * ATVs and "Gators" are shown
                        * Assault may get a visible laser that does the same as BC2 "auto Q-spot" sniper scope gadget
                        * Jets have cannon, guided missiles, and flares (of course)
                        * Tanks may have HEAT, SABOT, and Machine Gun as options to shoot (need to confirm this)
                        * M320 Grenade launcher / noob tube
                        * Mark 11 Mod 0 semi auto sniper rifle
                        * M4A1 (of course)
                        * M416 (i think)
                        * Mi 28 Havoc (of course)
                        * FM 92 STINGER <-- YAY
                        * AKS-74M
                        * M16A3 (hmm, why this variant)
                        * F18 Super Hornet
                        * Javelin <-- YAY
                        * RPG-7V2


                        Talked a little about Battlelog. Nothing useful other than perhaps you will be able to keep in touch and organized outside of game. No details on whether it would support a rank structure or "circles" such as, if you were in a clan, part of TG and part of tournament like BFCombat or 21CW.

                          You guys are going to hate me, but my boss just told me I'm being flown to Stockholm for a month to help with gameplay tuning/testing.

                          I love my job haha.

                          Unfortunately that also means you can all bitch at me about balance when the game comes out =[

                            Nice! :) And we already give you enough grief, ask him for a pay rise! :)

                            Edit: Looks like there's still some lingering entity collision issues too, the jets fly right through the cables helping stabilize the tower. Helicopter blades are probably not modeled either.
                            Yeah I noticed that, but then it was like that in BF2 as well. Wish there was some info on VoiP, but apparently there is more to come in the next few days. As pure game porn it was good, and the HUD's do look very nice. Good vehicles, like I said, maps could be bigger, but not bad. Interested to see what they say about a few things soon.

                              You lucky man! Will you be able to divulge details or will you be under an agreement not to disclose anything?
