DICE given "privacy" for Battlefield 3
Posted: 04.08.2010 12:31 by Simon Priest Comments: 16
EA is giving developer DICE "as much time and privacy" the studio needs to make Battlefield 3, so there's no marketing anytime soon.

In fact the publisher doesn't even want the press bothering them. A beta for Battlefield 3 is included in Medal of Honor Limited Edition copies.

The multiplayer beta date is unknown. "Battlefield 3 is one of the most anticipated games in the world and we want to give the dev team as much time and privacy to craft the game without disturbing them with Marketing/PR," said EA.

"In the meantime, everyone is excited to launch MOH and we hope you'll play that beta and enjoy that game this fall." Little information exists on this 3rd full instalment to Battlefield, except what DICE managed to spill ages back now about the PC version.

"What the PC version is going to be, Battlefield 3, I think it's going to absolutely blow everyone away, but I can't tell you what it is, but it will blow people away... because it's not Modern Warfare 2 PC, it's not that experience," said ex-DICE Fredrik Liliegren.

It's unlikely to touch down this fiscal year for EA - meaning it will likely arrive for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sometime after March 31st, 2011. Looking forward to it?

I agree, BC2 is one of the most fun FPS games I've ever played. BF3 is gonna be awesome, I like that they are given time to polish it as much as they want instead of being rushed. :D Makes for much better games. ^^

I want the return of flyable planes!
Come to think of it, it's called "battlefield" so it could be set in any time period.

remember battlefield 2142? so yeah they can put in any timeline .

oh god .... thinking of how starcraft Ghost would have turned out if it was like battlefield ... or if it was actually released !

Definately looking forward to this, but with BC2, and not to mention MoH and 1943 coming to the PC soon I'll be kept rather busy for the next little while. So take whatever time you need DICE!

Wonder how a Battlefield game set in 1800s looked like. I wonder if I would like that one? I would, because they never made that one before, so they can't copy anything. It would be an original :)
By BoneArc (SI Elite) on Aug 05, 2010
BoneArc
First of all : 1943 is coming to pc ?!?! Sweet !
2md : 1800s was never put into a video game because there wasn't enough things in that time zone to make something serious , it never had that much action .... but there might be , so yea make a 1800s Game !
By Wowerine (SI Elite) on Aug 05, 2010
Wowerine
Dude. Wild West? So much action :) It only doesn't mach the proportions of the WW2 battles, not to mention that most battles are imaginary, why not imagine something 1800s...
By BoneArc (SI Elite) on Aug 05, 2010
BoneArc
exactly my point , they should imagine a 1800s gang vs gang thing ... but about 10 gangs fighting for control over the UNDERWORLD !!!!

why isnt that they dont make a underworld crime ring battlefield instead ?!

would revolutionize the gaming industry
By Wowerine (SI Elite) on Aug 05, 2010
Wowerine
Probably. The future in games lies in the parts where no one else was. Themes and exploits that have never been touched before. Almost everyone is sick of all those army games lately... so much repetition.

yea .. the godfather had an advantage with its MAFIA STYLE gameplay and racketing .
So more games like that would own if they were different
By Wowerine (SI Elite) on Aug 05, 2010
Wowerine
Too bad the Godfather games kinda sucked. Mafia was great tough. And I'm sick of waiting for the 2nd part to come out.
By BoneArc (SI Elite) on Aug 06, 2010
BoneArc
dude , how can you say that ? The Godfather Games were So Popular , And the 2nd one made them EVEN more popular .
i robbed so many banks in the 2nd one i cant even tell you.

BATTLEFIELD 3
What do you want it ( To be or Not To be )


For example:
Below are some ideas of what we all would like to
see in the up coming version of Battlefield ( BF3 )
If at all Possible,
Some of the Ideas may not be possible but what ever can be put in
or added to, will definitely improve the game.

1 - Don't make the graphics look like Bad Company 2 or Medal Of Honor keep the ( BF2 LOOK )
2 - Make sure there is VOIP
3 - Make sure you can make SQUADS
4 - Destructive Environments - with the ( BF2 LOOK )
4a - While procedural destruction uses in-game physics to determine where the rubble goes, not in a predetermined fashion.
5 - Commander Abilities
6 - You must be able to go prone
7 - Increase the operational ceiling for the aircraft
8 - It should take a long time to make rank up like it does in BF2/AIX
9 - All of the weapons like zip lines and grappling hooks should be in there too
10 - Cut back it's accuracy of the milker
11 - More Blood splatter
12 - Similar number of unique vehicles to BF2
13 - Full MOD support
14 - BF2 with serious upgrades, much like we see in AIX
15 - Have Aircraft, Armour and an array of Vehicles
15a - Motorcycles, Zipline Night Vision Gogles
16 - Ships that can sail around and shoot, Destroyers , Subs, Battleships, even the carrier could be moved
17 - A Weather element, Fog, Rain, Thunderstorms, Wind, Sandstorms with the Sound Effects
18 - Time Change - Daytime into Nighttime, Day slowly goes into night and viceaversa Night into Day ( As you play )
19 - Night Vision Goggles & Binocs available in all kits
20 - Only Commander should give out UAV
21 - Be able to shoot & kill a pilot with a 50m sniper rifle through windshield
22 - Not be able to Bunny Hop - Once you jump it should give you a sec delay
23 - Not able to shoot straight every time when you jump
24 - Make the most wanted flag ( LAST FLAG ) or ( THE MAIN FLAG ) for capture, (on each side) Also the slowest to change, (in both directions).
25 - Allow more Jets, Choppers and Vehicles in general when the server reaches a certin number of players.
26 - Make sure its a 64 or more man Server
27 - Able to [ Lean L / R ] while standing or crouching by a wall or objects
28 - Able to [ Roll L / R ] when prone
29 - Able to change the look of your character
30 - Movable spawn point. Destroyers that are Movable spawn point. You spawn and jump in a landing craft and assault the beach
30a - Changeable spawn Points, The spawn points are never or almost never the same, So some people can't memorize them
31 - Tunnel Networks ( UNDER GROUND ) with numerous above ground access points
32 - Suicide is not allowed or if you suicide yourself you have to wait a lot to respawn
33 - Planes and choppers have to land for Ammo Reloading & Repairing
34 - Able to go underwater with a breather and a sprint button for 20 seconds at a time...
35 - The commander should have the ability to REMOVE any PLAYER, who is a SQUADLEADER, from being a SQUADLEADER if said player is NOT following the commanders ORDERS
