Excitement for Battlefield 3 is now at a boil, and DICE and EA are doing their best to stoke the fire. In this new gameplay video, we join U.S. Marine Sgt. Blackburn in Operation Guillotine.

In this night mission, the Marines descend on Tehran to capture members of the People's Liberation and Resistance (PLA). It's definitely one of those "blink and you'll miss it" videos, but DICE plans to release part two of the video next week. In the meantime, soak up this tiny chunk of shock and awe.

Look for the game October 25 on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
