Nope, not really. Just the three videos already released in one, with a bit more thrown in between.

The explosion of the hotel building with the sniper in it sure looks less dramatic in this 12 minute long video, than the other shorter video of the level.

Outstanding video. You can tell some of these DICE employees love what they do.

Default EA Launching Download Service 'Origin' Today

Quote:
According to The Wall Street Journal, EA is launching a Steam like service tomorrow called Origin. On launch, 150 games will be available for purchase and will have strong social networking integration. Additionally players will be able to perform actions on on mobile platforms and have it affect the full version of the game. An example of this is mentioned in the article saying you could earn experience in "Battlefield" by playing a mobile version of the game. This could be a hypothetical situation since Battlefield 3 was not specially mentioned, just simply "Battlefield".

GameSpot

Though Electronic Arts' Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference isn't until Monday at 12:30 p.m. PDT, the Wall Street Journal has pre-empted a major announcement by the megapublisher. The financial daily is reporting that EA is planning to soon unveil Origin, a new PC game-download service along the lines of Valve Software's Steam. The name appears unrelated to Origin Systems, the Ultima and Wing Commander developer EA bought in 1992 and then closed in 2004.

EA plans to greatly expand its digital download retail offerings with its Origin service.

According to the Journal, Origin will function like Steam, insofar that it will let gamers directly purchase, download, and organize PC titles. The service will start out with a catalog over 150 offerings when it launches, and will be the sole online purveyor of Star Wars: The Old Republic when that game goes online (presumably) later this year. The publisher is reportedly hoping the exclusive availability of the eagerly awaited sci-fi massively multiplayer online role-playing game will boost the nascent service's popularity.

Like Activision's just-announced Call of Duty: Elite service, Origin will also reportedly have a strong social networking element that will allow players to communicate about their game experiences across a variety of devices via a single profile. Also like Elite, Origin will reportedly let players perform actions on mobile or other platforms that affect full-fledged games. David DeMartini, EA's senior vice president of global online, gave the example of a sharp-shooting "Battlefield" minigame on a mobile phone yielding points that could be used in the regular version of a Battlefield game. (Curiously, the full-fledged platform mentioned was the Xbox 360, not the PC.)

1UP

Beyond the social aspects of what Origin will offer, a possible scenario is mentioned where you can earn experience in Battlefield 3 by playing a mobile version of the game. This is said to be only a hypothetical (it's "Battlefield," not BF3 specifically, that's referred to). However, one has to wonder if EA isn't planning on doing exactly that with BF3 and Mass Effect 3; both games had handheld/mobile versions listed on an EA release calendar last month, so maybe we'll be seeing that sort of connectivity before long.
Hmmm with this release I am wondering if BF3 will even get released on steam?

The only game it mentions that service will have exclusively, temporarily at least, is Star Wars: the Old Republic. For PC gaming supposedly being dead or close to there sure is a lot of sudden interest in digital distribution for the PC.
