Caspian Border first made it’s appearance in mid August and information is still coming out about this Battlefield 3 map. The tower seen in the trailer is destructible and we have another piece of information about the map today. It’s a rather large map, 1.4km is it’s width. For reference, the Operation Metro map from the alpha trial was ~800m at it’s widest point. There’s plenty of space for jets to fly in this Battlefield 3 map!

The tower can also be seen later in the trailer from the cockpit of a plane.

Forget the best animations in a Battlefield title, these look like the best animations in an FPS game yet. Not only do NPCs look realistic, but player actions like crawling (yeah that’s right, prone position makes a return in BF3) and interacting with the environment look as smooth as ever.
