The sixth GeForce LAN is kicking off today in Alameda, California on board the historic aircraft carrier USS Hornet. The event runs all weekend and features Battlefield 3 as a centerpiece to the festivities, with casual and freeplay tournaments in Conquest and Team Deathmatch modes. In addition to Operation Metro and Caspian Border, three new maps will be playable by the public for the first time ever at the GeForce LAN - Grand Bazaar, Operation Firestorm, and a third new map which has not yet been revealed.
DICE rendering architect Johan “Repi” Andersson is there and has been tweeting some pictures of the event. Check the rest out here. If you are lucky enough to be onboard the USS Hornet attending the event, feel free to send us some pictures of your own to share!
