Okay......so it was hands on with the PS3 version, but some interesting comments none-the-less: Battlefield 3 Hands-On Report: Opposing Forces – PlayStation Blog

Amongst the interesting stuff:
Quote:
I decided to explore the ways the Recon class has evolved since BF:BC2. In a notable change, every character class can now dip into a full prone stance. To help balance a sniper’s new, lower profile, DICE is adding a bit of weapon glint to help betray a sniper’s position when he zeros in on a target for too long.

Continuing with the tech, Kris quizzed Patrick about one of our favourite topics, DirectX 11. In addition to using effects such as displacement mapping Patrick told us that Battlefield 3 will use Compute Shaders to improve the quality and effectiveness of the engine, and with regards to tessellation, which is “doing great on NVIDIA cards,” the DICE Producer simply says, “tessellation is so sexy!”
Kris then attempts to retrieve system spec information from Patrick, but as loose lips sink ships, and ruin PR plans, Patrick stays mum, though he is happy to say, “you’ll definitely be safe with dual [NVIDIA GTX] 580s in SLI.”

Default New SP mission, "Operation Guillotine" preview.

Eurogamer have a couple of pages up about a single player mission they were invited to play at DICE HQ.

Linky

Not the most revealing of articles, but if you're curious as to game-flow in the SP version there's bits and bobs here.
