It’s been nearly two years since Battlefield 3 first hit the shelves in October 2011, but gamers thought they had found nearly every easter egg Dice had to offer – until now. With the last expansion pack, End Game, there was a definite emphasis on dinosaur-related content, such as a T-Rex skull, and a pterodactyl bopping around the skies on Nabandan Flats. This time, they decided to take a slightly different approach by hiding an audio recording within character chatter while spotting AA.
Deemed “Battlefield 3’s rarest easter egg,” by such publications as PC Gamer, this thing is so hard to find that no one can even replicate it. Now that’s well-hidden. An intrepid explorer known only by his YouTube handle of JackFrags (check out his channel, he’s got some awesome BF4 footage to show off) was able to record the microscopic clip on film, but even if you knew exactly what you were looking for, this thing would be pretty easy to miss. Basically, it’s a shout-out to a former Dice developer (and lead designer of Battlefield 3) by the name of David Goldfarb (insert Requiem for a Dream reference here). Polygon reported almost exactly one year ago on his leaving Dice to take up a new post as the creative director on Payday 2 over at Overkill Software.
Check out the video below for some interesting backstory, including JackFrag’s rather impressive sleuthing to find the secret voiceover.
Sam is an aspiring novelist who spends his days handling tech support for a Manhattan-based website called streeteasy.com. Despite living in Brooklyn and being a white twenty-something who likes to think he's got some sort of creative talent, he hopes to avoid being pigeon-holed, because we are all beautiful snowflakes. He has come to Gaming Trend with the intent of improving his writing by way of a deep and abiding love for PC gaming, but hopes to let consoles into his life just as soon as his pockets become a bit deeper. He and his wife can often be found wandering around Central Park, where they enjoy making fun of people who resemble their own dogs.
