Developer DICE has released 18 new images for their highly-anticipated shooter Battlefield 3. While the majority of the pictures contain soldiers running through a gritty but gorgeously-rendered war-torn battlefield, there are also storyboard sketches and drawings that outline character movement in the game. Battlefield 3 uses "ANT" motion technology, which is also what powers the realistic movements in Electronic Arts' FIFA sports games.

Furthermore, the screenshots highlight what the game's new Frostbite 2 engine is capable of. Impressive lighting/shading, improved destructible environments, and more realistic smoke effects are showcased.
