"I've had the luxury of looking at Battlefield 3 over at DICE in Sweden and was highly impressed by the way the team is working on that product," he said. "Of course, that's not [coming out] in the fiscal year, but that is a product that is looking very good."
:D

If it's a PC exclusive I'll be interested.

Apparantly its multiplatform :mad:

Perky McGiggles Jun 10, 2009 04:57 PM

Double damn't.

Don't they know all they have to do is remake BF1942 *exactly* as it was, just with updated graphics and they will sell millions? Ugh...

BF1943 should be like that(hope so) except with only a few maps.

BF1943 is nothing like BF1942, but it does look pretty neat for a cheap time-waster.

A multiplatform Battlefield game... :lol:

The game is not even worth the server space this thread is taking.

The 24 player limit has to be the biggest let down of 1943. I'm sure that will be changeable on PC, but the maps will be designed for the smaller player count :(.

I also hope they don't nerf how the planes handle. There is little reason to given that all the console players will have analog control. However, I'm just not that confident in EA/Dice.

p.s. Not to mention the BS health regen system

elchico Jun 10, 2009 07:45 PM

multi platform would make it ****ty
might be a console port and would not be cheap

all they have to do is balance bf2 weapons/vehicles, improve the graphics and add 4 good maps/modes and they'll make

this amt of mickey mouse fps is rediculous.

Same here. Looking forward to OFPDR and Modern Warfare 2.

Hippo Jun 10, 2009 09:36 PM

hmm thought they said that BF3 was a myth, and imo it looks like BF:BC2 kind of replaces BF2. OR maybe BC2 is like it own multiplayer/singleplayer while BF3 will literally be like BF2 using the frostbite engine.

warmonger180 Jun 10, 2009 10:43 PM

hopefully it'll be set in Korea. it's time to let WW2 die peacfully:bleh:

Grand Poobah Jun 11, 2009 10:19 AM

So in all seriousness, where does it say anything about being multiplatform. Hell, we don't even know if this guy was talking about Bad Company 2.

genci88 Jun 11, 2009 11:29 AM

You are right. It is not mentioned anywhere that it will be multiplatform.

We can still hope.

Pirate Neilsouth Jun 11, 2009 11:35 AM

It was just a rumour on one of the ea BF forums , if i find the link i'll post it :)

I agree about the 24 player limit.

Planes need to be equal...that is all i ask. You have to have the ability to kill one from the ground. Maybe its not realistic, but its a video game. The most frustrating part of BF2 was being constantly raped by aircraft and not being able to do anything about it (if the pilot had the slightest amount of skill.)

Since I'm a ground pounder, I don't really care how the planes handle...just as long as they don't rape face.

From the BF bad company multiplayer trailer, it looked like the BF2 style medic. Then again it was only a short clip, but health regen sounds kinda lame. I always enjoyed running around spamming med packs.

Rumours are exactly that. Unless it was sparked by an EA employee, I call dog's bollocks.

The PC will have a 48 player limit, which is as well because 48 players fills up those maps (which are surprisingly huge, given its a console game primarily) quite nicely. 64 out of 64 always got a bit crowded and if I'm honest, annoying in BF2.

Hippo Jun 11, 2009 03:22 PM

Well if its on the Frostbite engine then it will most likely be multiplatform (cause everyone likes money :D ).

I found quite the opposite.

I always thought 64 players was great on the large maps.

Would like to see 128 players myself, though knowing how console > PC works, we will get shoebox sized maps just like what has happened with the Call Of Duty franchise.

That was one of my beefs with BF2. The anti-air systems just absolutely sucked! I always hated the missiles that had to lock on because by the time you'd gotten a lock, the jet was already out of range or completely out of view (or you were already dead!)

In BF 1942, I seem to remember that anti-air flak guns were much more effective. I always loved trying to aim ahead of the planes and hearing the *POOF POOF POOF* of those big ol' guns. It was always satisfying seeing your smoke clouds hit right on the planes and watching them go down in flames like a fireball out of the sky.

Maybe they'll get it right with BF3. I'm still wondering what era this one will be set in, but I'm willing to bet that with the popularity of the Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Battlefield Bad Company games, they'll stick to a modern-day setting not too different from the one we already saw in BF2.

Ah, just imagine, remake 1942 with the new graphics engine, new physics, and a 256-player El Al.....

DICE stated that "there is something for hardcore pcgamers" in several interviews. Which of course, prompted the BF3 speculation as well.

Also, DICE has stated that BF1943 is also a "test" of the Frostbite engine on PC, meaning its a sort of tech demo as well, not just a minigame for the hell of it. Bad Company 2 is an extenuation of that tech demo.

That said, I would not be surprised at all if BF3 is multiplatform.

You aren't laughing because Americans (?) can't use English slang are you? :p

Nah, Grand Poobah, Dog's Bollocks is used to describe something good whereas just bollocks is something bad.

E.g. "It was the dog's bollocks" - It was very good.
"It was bollocks" - It was very bad.

So for what you were trying to say, it didn't really make sense, however it would have if you just said "I call bollocks" - meaning you think it's bull****. And saying it like that would have been perfect and undistinguishable from an Englishman!
I give 10/10 for effort; cus you were close and it was better than hearing a whiny American saying :p


And people, do not be surprised if what EA publish is a let down and in all honesty, it probably will be. I would love to see a lovingly updated and restored BF1942 because it would be nostalgia-ville and it would be something I would love to play.

But I'm not going to worry about what DICE creates because if they do **** it up big with console features or plain stupidity, I am confident that the prevalent modding BF modding community will come forth and ensure whatever you want out of BF3, you will get and you will enjoy.

Grand Poobah Jun 12, 2009 11:03 AM

Ah thanks for the explanation Ninja, lol.

yeah I knew saying "the dog's bollocks" is good, but yeah...

Anyway, I am pretty excited, Bad Company 2 looks pretty awesome. And there's also Modern Warfare 2 to tide me over in the mean time.

Btw, Isle of Man is a cool place so I've heard. I want to go there.

Indeed pretty much, infact they could make it massively multiplayer & persistent...oops! Now i've gone and given EA ideas :cry:

shoman24v Jun 12, 2009 02:08 PM

Will this version have the stu stu stu stuttering problem :lol:

I'm interested... I totally miss playing BF2, I wish there were more people on that game. I never understood why the expansion pack had to open in its own seperate game rather then just making it all one.

*Goes to play BF2 when I get home*

Grand Poobah Jun 13, 2009 11:12 PM

What I find brilliant is the frostbite engine and the destructible environments we should be seeing on a large scale. I doubt they've doubled the 64 player cap, but perhaps they've increased it to 100, that'd be pretty cool I think.
