Over on the official site for Battlefield 3, it seems DICE stealthy revealed some new details about the DLC coming later this year. Check out the major key features of the content.
Looking forward to this and jumping back on BF again.. This is what BF is all about.. not that CQC garbage
Actually, CQC is really good in BF3. I enjoy it very much. The large map sounds good but it's too bad that we can't have more than 24 people on a map at once. People will get lost on that big map. Will feel empty.
^ Go back to Call of Duty and stay away from my Battlefield
@SJPFTW I don't like CoD. I love Battlefield. Played every BF game ever since BF1942. Also, it's not yours. You didn't make the game.
Ares, fail COD noob. Destroying BF3. CQC is shit, deal with it.
CQC is fine, it's just an added extra... stop boo-hoo'ing and just play conquest/rush if it gets on your wick. Rent-a-Server... now that's something to compain about! ^^
I dont like CQC on BF3 but alot of people do. I dont care what Dice do as long as they cater for everyone. Someone like myself who loves Rush and Conquest Assault might not have found the last DLC that fun. However Armoured Kill just seems fantastic. One thing, anyone who plays Battlefield 1943 would know of Air Superiority mode, I hope something similar will be on BF3.
I'm not that into CQC either (it lack the good objective based modes), but I dig the smaller or not so open maps (as Metro, Seine Crossing and Bazaar, as well as CQC maps). The thing is it feels pretty empty on those huge maps and you have to deal with people destroying vehicle at spawn all the time, it annoyed me so much I started to skip matches at Firestorm and Caspian Border. If CQC was geared more towards, let's say Rush, with slightly bigger/longer maps, the closed environments make up for some well heated battles, specially with the destruction changing the geometry all the time. But what I would really love to see is something like Socom's Demolition or some Capture the Flag stuff. At least for me, it's not so much about vehicles or map size... The thing is BF3 needs more diverse objectives. Conquest (all CQ modes, DOM, CQA, etc) and TDM doesn't feel like you are achieving anything, just mindlessly killing stuff 'till the timer countdown expires, so I'm kinda stuck with Rush so far.
New Tank Superiority game mode Damn. Clan battle tankers galore!
Havent played BF3 since GRAW FS came out. Two good games with massive flaws.
Theres always one person.
Is he not allowed to have an opinion? Not everyone shares the same views as you.
Popular opinion rules Ballard32. The rest enjoy themselves.
Everyone is allowed a opinion just like i replyed with mine.
There's flaws in BF3??
Big map and vehicle emphasis....this is one of the packs I'll be passing up. Calm down its personal opinion, and I play on console so the maps are big enough since our player count is so low.
Yea, 24 players on a huge map ain't that fun.
I agree, wish they would up the player count for the new maps. Oh well guess i'll be passing it up too.
Or at least properly scale them down to fit the smaller player count.
Well think about it, 24 players on foot on a huge map is pretty ridiculous. 24 players in vehicles on a huge map... well that's completely different. Although I'm sure we'd all prefer more players per game, 32+ or so, I think this will work fine with 24 players considering for example, in Tank superiority mode everyone having a tank. That's 24 tanks in one map, to me that isn't too bad. This mode is something I've been very excited about, hopefully Dice wont disappoint.
Wake island works pretty well on CQA
I agree, it all depends on Flag placements. Caspian Border is also pretty good, but Firestorm is lacking in my opinion.
Depends on the game. Some games one team sucks so bad that you really feel how big Wake Island is. Caspian border is the same. Sometimes its fun as hell, other times you wonder why you even have a gun in your hand.....
DICE said the PS3 and 360 could have 64 player servers. It's just that consoles have a bandwith cap on them so they can't handle more players. The frostbite 2 destruction takes up most of the bandwith so if we wanted 64 man servers Sony and Microsoft would have to remove the bandwith cap.
I heard it was Microsoft that had the limit for Xbox Live? Didn't know Sony's was so low since Killzone and Resistance have massive online numbers.
Mag has 256 players...I remember them saying that the quality of the game on consoles would drop due to higher player counts, but nothing about bandwith.
I actually was planning on getting just this one expansion, but now that punkbuster is fked up for BF3 on my computer, I think I will pass.
Gonna be awesome just wish consoles had a higher player count so these big maps won't be so well empty
thats why i play rush. it concentrates the battle to one area. i don't really play conquest that much for this reason. i'm happy enough with rush
I just got BF3 not too long ago, and I have to be honest...the more and more I play this game, the more and more I like it. =)
so its a twisted metal match up? im in
Uh........no..........it's vehicle combat.........twisted metal didn't invent vehicle combat.....
who said that twisted metal invented vehicle combat? just said that it seemed that way
I think I would have to see more gameplay first. Not jumping on this bandwagon
Looks good to me http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I will be passing on this one. DICE give me some more Conquest Domination levels!!! and more Close Quarters in general i will give you my $
pretty sure the maps wont be bigger than Caspian Border, Operation Firestorm on the consoles.... NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT... when the say beggest map, they're talking about on the PC
Dear PC kid. Maps in console versions are the same size. They don't have the same number of players and flags but how would you know?
Luckily there wont be anymore call of duddy clusterfuck packs as of now so thumbs up for dice
I hope they include some variety in these maps, we've seen the desert map so hopefully there'll be some snow and jungle maps!
"All maps playable with all six game modes" TAKE MEH MONEH
Meh...bring free for all mode and fix TDM please....never seen soo many campers in any game. I dont play objective and territory based games, i hate them so better start releasing descent TDM type maps and Gun game type modes and i will continue To play ur game.
Why play a Battlefield title if you're not going for objectives?
Im bored...gotta try somet els...this dayan age, who the fuck forsnt make TDM a priority dont deserve to be the best.
U sir are one retarted idiot If you want TDM superiority go play COD because battlefield is all about objective and working as a team That's what makes bf3 so great
BF3 IS THE BEST......
How is this news? We already knew all of this!
This is old news nothing I didn't already know was in this post
Nothing we didn't know already.
Why not I can't wait for it soon enough.If Emilio is on I will soon be too.
And with that also 7 gb mandatory update
"biggest BF map in history" My ass...Just like how Firestorm was the biggest EMPTY SPACE in history? Wide open empty spaces dont make a map big DICE, why cant we have some big city maps set in the main city we often see set in the distance.
if its empty or full if it can have battles on it its a map. deal with the fact and move on swiftly. dont bother replying cos n4g posters are too tight to give me extra bubbles. 1 bubble since i joined up. at least a year ago. pathetic website with pathetic wingey people.
go molest a goat wont ya loegoats! here is a good site for you http://aacap.org/page.ww?na...
How did an observation that DICE claim "massive scale maps" but with nothing on them result in having these types of responses? And its true, size means nothing if there is nothing to do in those big empty spaces, fair enough have a desert map, but dont claim somehting is so massive when all it is, is one big massive empty space. And to boot literally insulting mental disability? Think il stop posting on this site as the community is just the worst I have seen.
Not sold on it yet. But I'm wondering how the 5 vehicle unlocks will work in the base game, can you just spawn it out of your ass or something? Confusing.
