The announcement that Xbox 360 owners would have to install a 1.5 GB texture update for Battlefield 3 in order to maximize the game’s graphical prowess sparked a high level of intrigue in the days leading up to the game’s launch.

This video comes courtesy of Youtube user “GamingP0rtal” and shows off parts of the first campaign level from Battlefield 3. While those who don’t install the high-resolution pack won’t find the game unplayable, it’s quite apparent here how many of the in-game game textures appear as if they were teleported straight out of Battlefield 1942.
