Battlefield 3 to level Paris

Sacré bleu!

EA's forthcoming Battlefield 3 FPS will cut a destructive swathe through Paris, New York and Tehran, according to retailer information.

Following this morning's Game Informer reveal, a GAME product listing dug up by Gamerzines has offered a few more details of what to expect from the shooter, due for release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year.

"In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding single player missions and competitive multiplayer actions ranging across diverse locations from around the globe including Paris, Tehran and New York," it reads.

The listing goes on to pledge that you'll get to "watch buildings crumble and cover disappear as bullets and explosion tear through your surroundings! Even landmarks you recognise aren't safe from the destruction you'll inflict!"

We're taking that as confirmation you'll get to knock the Eiffel Tower over.
