Venice Unleashed provides a liberated environment for the original Battlefield 3 game.
"Liberated" means that you're granted access to features of the game that were previously disabled or completely missing.
Here are just a few of those features:
The spectator mode allows you to join a server as a spectator instead of as a player. You can roam around the map freely or follow a player in 1st or 3rd person, which makes detecting cheaters and filming cinematics much easier than it was before. Read more about the spectator mode here.
Private Server Hosting
As opposed to the original game, we don't limit hosting to only a few providers. All users will be allowed to privately host dedicated servers. You can find out more about hosting in this post.
High Frequency Servers
Experience smooth and responsive gameplay in high frequency servers, with simulation rates ranging from 60Hz to 120Hz and update rates from 30Hz to 60Hz, which results in up to 3 times less latency compared to vanilla BF3. Read more here.
Advanced Configuration Options
Things like the blue tint and the the blinding sun were something that annoyed players since the release of BF3. Now server hosters can finally turn those, and countless other options, off (or leave them enabled, it's all up to you!).
Mods and User-Generated Content
A major part of Venice Unleashed will be user-generated content in the form of mods. You will be able to write custom gamemodes and game logic in the form of script extensions, as well as create entirely new content with Rime, our custom Frostbite editor. Read more here and here.
Last but not least, we won't restrict you to only one soldier like in the original game. You can create multiple soldiers. Plus, resetting your stats will no longer be a premium-exclusive feature. Don't like your soldier anymore? Simply delete it!
Even though you will need to own a valid license for BF3, Venice Unleashed itself functions completely without any connection to EA - there's no risk of getting banned.
The project is supported by an ever-growing community that is eager to contribute as much as possible.
For this reason, we also have a community forum where you can exchange views on project-related topics, request help or suggest your ideas!

Oh, and have we mentioned that all of this is completely free?
Battlefield fans, this is for you. Modder NoFate announced that he and his team have opened the enlistment system for their highly anticipated project for Battlefield 3, Venice Unleashed. Those interested can head over to its websiteand sign up for the closed beta that will be launched – hopefully – soon.
Venice Unleashed promises to let you have control over a wide set of features and settings that were initially hidden from you. In other words, those using this mod will be able to create servers without the blue tint, or with limited destruction, or without supression.
But that’s not all. Venice Unleashed will feature an Extension System, which exposes lots of engine/game functions and abilities. Thus, players will be able to create their own unique mods and gamemodes, without the need of performing complicated and game-breaking file modifications. Yeap, modding is coming – via this unofficial method – to BF3.
Last but not least, Venice Unleashed will feature a Spectator Mode, as well as a functional Commo Rose and many more previously hidden, half-implemented or disabled game features.
It’s ironic, but NoFate is doing what DICE has failed to accomplish.Not only that, but it also proves that the development team did not release BF3’s modding tools on purpose and not because modders would have a ‘difficult time figuring them out‘.
