Battlefield 3: The Controller Reality Series

Posted on October 18, 2011 AT 06:33am

THE BUZZ: Gamespot has announced a brand new reality series where 12 people battle it out in a real life version of Battlefield 3, with the players as the controller.

Six Pros take on six Noobs in a battle to win $50,000. The series sees some of the worlds best pro gamers battle it out without ever even touching a controller. Presented by professional skier and Olympic Gold medalist Jonny Moseley the contestants will have to complete daily challenges based on scenarios found in the game. The Controller begins Friday October 21st on Gamespot’s official Youtube channel.

EGM’s TAKE: Can the best gamers in the world actually hack it in real life with much higher stakes? You’ll have to tune in to find out.
