I am very excited to announce that next month's hero title will be the exceptional Battlefield 3, arriving on the service on 3rd July.
Built by the extremely talented team at DICE studios, Battlefield 3 is an FPS masterpiece from start to finish, taking full advantage of the Frostbite 2 game engine to deliver a superior visual experience.
