For those of you who aren't getting the "private link" from EA and Dice...
They've come up big on Sunday, but how will Gridiron greats fare on the real Battlefield? We dropped Drew Brees, Clay Matthews, Larry Fitzgerald and Jared Allen into the desert to train with highly decorated Special Operations Forces and sent them on a rescue mission using combat tactics, weapons, and more, from the highly anticipated video game, Battlefield 3.
From the football field to the battlefield, the Battlefield 3™ experience comes alive this fall! Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced that it has teamed up with some of football's biggest stars for an exclusive reality show titled GTTV Presents Battlefield 3: Operation Gridiron. Airing on Spike TV this fall, the show takes Quarterback Drew Brees, Linebacker Clay Matthews, Wide Receiver Larry Fitzgerald, and Defensive End Jared Allen into real-life combat scenarios inspired by the award--winning videogame, Battlefield 3. Filmed at a top secret location, these all-star athletes are provided the ultimate in combat training by some of the world's most elite Special Operations Warriors. Following their advanced training, they must work together as a team to accomplish a live simulated operation, pulled straight from the gritty war scenarios players will face in the game. Starting today, weekly Tuesday webisodes will be posted at 9:00am PDT on the Battlefield Facebook page. The finale will air on Spike TV on October 24 at 12:00am EST/PDT and at 11:00pm CST.
