The Need for Speed franchise was getting a bit too dull in the recent past, but EA cleverly handed Criterion Games the job of making a reboot in the series to stir up interest in the minds of gamers, which Criterion Games indeed succeeded in doing.

EA just revealed the box art for one of their biggest upcoming titles – Battlefield 3 – developed by DICE. Have a look:

As you can see, the general theme of the box art remains quite unchanged from what we saw in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 – a lone soldier walking with a gun in hand, and a flame effect on one side. With vehicles. Because vehicles make the game so much more cooler.
