Spawn killing is ****ed up, planting c4 on peoples equipment is fair game, but spawn killing is a ****ing **** thing to do.

"Battlefield 3 demo due prior to launch - Report

By Tom Magrino, GameSpot
Posted Apr 21, 2011 5:35 pm PT

[UPDATE] EA Dice executive producer ostensibly confirms publisher will release sampler of upcoming FPS before the game is out later this year; publisher says he meant beta.

[UPDATE] As it would turn out, EA isn't quite yet ready to commit to a pre-release demo for Battlefield 3. Responding to GameSpot's request for comment, an EA spokesperson indicated that Bach's comments pertained to the previously announced multiplayer beta for Battlefield 3, and not a demo as was previously reported.

GameSpot's original story can be found below.

Considering the massive popularity of the Call of Duty franchise, it's no wonder Activision hasn't pushed Infinity Ward and Treyarch to release pre-launch demos of their recent military first-person shooters to build hype. However, with Electronic Arts positioning Battlefield 3 as its Call of Duty killer, the publisher apparently will be pulling the trigger on a pre-release demo.

Speaking to MSXbox-World, EA Dice executive producer Patrick Bach reportedly confirmed that a demo for Battlefield 3 would be available prior to the game's launch this fall. Unfortunately, Bach's reply amounted to little more than an answer in the affirmative. As such, he did not offer any additional gameplay details or a specific release timing. EA had not responded to a request for comment as of press time.

Battlefield 3 will apparently be sending out skirmishers before the full assault.

Battlefield 3 will sport both a single-player campaign and an online component, which can be played with up to 64 players (for the PC version only). Battlefield 3 will support co-op play for its campaign and will let gamers pilot jets, among other vehicles. Additionally, Battlefield 3 will run on DICE's updated Frostbite 2 engine.

For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of Battlefield 3. "

A war with Call Of Duty will only help PC sales in my view. BF essentially is a PC centric franchise. If EA are really stupid they will enter a war with Activision they simply won't win. Console sales for COD6 or whatever its called with no doubt be very strong, stronger than BF3. However I don't think the PC sales of the next COD title will be that great. I think BF3 will hold its own against COD on the PC, it probably won't beat it, but it will be close I think.

oh, that's still quite a while off, I hope they don't do a short beta, and disregard most of the reported bugs just to rush the product out in time for christmas.

Aus gamers BF3 interview

For those that dont bother reading to much, I'll sum up the important part of the interview:
Whereas the old Battlefield gamers could mod just fine - even when they had to program their own tools do work around the crappy mod support in BF1942, current Battlefield gamers are too stupid to create mods. So we wont see a mod toolkit. Sorry.

Almost. After the part of them not releasing any information or details on mods, he said there is a declining interest in the mod scene. Not sure I agree with him there, but I can understand them decreasing the development time by not working on something few people will use.

Although I find this to be stupid:
Quote:
So I’m really sorry to say, but it is a declining kind of art form. Which we see as a very, very sad thing, because we have recruited a lot of mod people to DICE actually.
They remove mod makers from the scene and then point out it's a declining art form? Hopefully they work on putting mod-centric ideas into the game from the start.

LOL yeah, it's only declining because they started releasing nothing but unmodifiable console ports..

I really don't see this "decline" in mods. Maybe, perhaps, there are "less" but you have to consider how much more difficult they are to create nowadays.

It's far from dead. Even with filters for no passworded games, no empty games, same version, etc. I ended up with 243 servers to choose from (see below). Although it's not quite as active as today's most-played MP games, there are still plenty players and servers out there!

Great. I probably will install it again when I move to NC, but the problem is how i can't remember my account and password is...I guess I'll create a new account.

Just wondering the pre-order map pack can you only get those if you pre-order or can you get them later?

It kind of sucks if you can't not everyone has the ability to buy things online or in my case I kind of can but would rather wait and buy it at my local shop where I don't think the pre-order thingy works.

they will definitely be selling it later as dlc. the only benefit of pre-ordering it is that you get it for the same price as the game.

I still can't get BF2 to run under Windows 7 x64. Constantly being booted by Punkbuster. I tried the retail CD and now own the Steam versions. Both boot me from Punkbuster.

I should take this to another thread...not BF3 related but since we are on the topic.
