Compete in Online Battlefield 3 Competition, Win $1.6 Million

Call of Duty: Elite may be boasting regular contests and prizes, Battlefield 3 is starting things big with an online competition with $1.6 million on the line.

EA and Virgin Gaming are teaming up to celebrate the launch of DICE’s newest entry in the Battlefield series by setting up a massive tournament where Battlefield fans can duke it out in what they’re calling “largest console videogame competition in gaming history.”

Details have yet to surface besides the big cash prize but if you visit the contest’s page now, you’ll be greeted with the chance to pre-register for the tournament by making an account with Virgin Gaming (if you don’t already have one) and being assured that you’ll receive notification of details when they’re announced. The page also says “the battle begins 2012,” so yeah, plenty of time to practice between Battlefield 3 releasing this October and 2012.

Or you can just play Modern Warfare 3. I won’t judge you.
