Battlefield 3 seems to be all the rage right now! So much so, that it even inspired its own reality show on Spike TV called Battlefield 3: Operation Gridiron, pitting four of football's biggest stars in the ultimate combat training. Quarterback Drew Brees, linebacker Clay Matthews, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, and defensive end Jared Allen will be the lucky participants.
“Taking to the battlefield in these real life war settings was really exciting and eye-opening,” said All-Pro quarterback Drew Brees. “Every day men and women face challenges similar to what we tackled in this show but with potential dire consequences. Filming this show once again reinforced my respect for the soldiers who fight every day for our freedom.”
Not only will they go through rigorous training by some of the world’s most elite Special Operations Warriors, they will then go through an actual simulated operation that will make them work together as a team to overcome it. What's even cooler is that the scenario they are going through is inspired from the ones found in the game. Starting today, weekly Tuesday webisodes will be posted at 9:00am PDT on the Battlefield Facebook page. The finale will then air on Spike TV on October 24 at 12:00am EST/PDT and at 11:00pm CST at which point gamers can rush out and get their brand new copies of the game! Gamers can “LIKE” Battlefield 3 on www.facebook.com/battlefield to view the Battlefield 3: Operation Gridiron webseries.
