In development since 2011 the Frostbite 3 engine was officially debuted along-side DICE's Battlefield 4 which was released in late 2013. The Frostbite engine has been morphing along with the Battlefield series over the years and with the release of Battlefield 4, developer DICE gives games one of the most realistic shooter experiences yet.

Upon it's release the game only supported DirectX 11 on PCs. However AMD will shortly be releasing 'Mantle' driver updates which will allow GCN-Arcitecture supported Radeon graphics cards to experience considerable performance increases due to the new ground breaking technology which Battlefield 4 will be the first to officially support.

Frostbite 3 is currently exclusive to EA titles.

"The entire world is alive in Frostbite games, immersing players into deep and dynamic worlds with always changing wind, water, and weather.

For many years, our developers have pursued realistic visuals. We have defined industry-leading visual standards by simulating real-world lighting conditions and depth of field characteristics. The next step for us has the pursuit of realism beyond static visuals. Dynamic behaviors over time are key to immersion and believable worlds. In our games, players will notice subtle movements in the world around them driven by changes in weather. Prepare for the next level of realism, driven by Frostbite technology!" -Frostbite.com

has spotted a new job listing from EA that is advertising an open position for UK studio Criterion. Though the position has since been removed from the website, the text described the position as “an exciting opportunity for a short term contract Quality Analyst position to work on a yet to be announced VR title,” in which applicants “will be responsible for identifying and reporting software defects, assisting with establishment of strong VR testing guidelines, writing and running test coverage and verifying fixes.”

The fact that this listing is specifically for EA’s studio, Criterion, is interesting – considering the news last week that Criterion’s extreme sports VR game had been cancelled. A spokesperson for EA added to the news that Criterion is continuing to work with VR through its contributions to EA’s Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, but also that Criterion is working on new IP. Considering the listing describes the VR title as “currently unannounced”, it’s unlikely this refers to Battlefront’s VR experience.

Last month, EA revealed that it had formed a new Frostbite Labs VR development team. The team is dedicated to pursuing virtual reality and augmented reality developments with EA’s Frostbite engine, which is also powering the Battlefront VR experience. EA and DICE have been hiring for virtual reality development since April.

Hey everyone, I just dumped Frostbite for another, even better engine. Go download CryEngine 3's SDK. It is just as impressive as Frostbite 3, if not even more so. And it is free for non-commercial use.

What is so special about Frostbite, DICE? It has nothing. CryEngine also has destruction, but I don't hear the CryDev team calling us stupid and claiming that we can't use the engine.

Humanity has reached a stage in technological evolution that gamers can collaborate together and make the games everyone would love. We don't need a bunch of greedy ***** like EA and DICE to make our games. Indie game are on the rise, more than ever.

Hey DICE want to make your games last up to 10-20 years? give us mod support.

See, that's the problem. They want their games to die quickly so we just gobble up anything else they throw at us.

That's right and at full price, they could never sell a 10 or 20 years old game at 60€.

Dice, I hope you have a darn good reason for betraying us in favor of EA. I guess you do. Money.

Frostbite 3 is designed to take modding out of our hands, even more than its previous versions. No mods means total dependance on the developers for new content. DICE, don't forget that it was a mod, Desert Combat, that drew the attention of gamers to your team. Now you have betrayed us. Shame on you.
