DICE Executive Producer, Patrick Bach has shared few more details about Battlefield 3 in an interview with Game Informer. The most important among them is that they are planning to have a dedicated servers for the game.
For what platforms I wonder... pc goes without saying. Ps3 and 360 aswell? I hope so, everyone deserves Dedi servers. I was just playing Battlefield 2 there for a few hours, it's as good as I remember haha
It probably will be just like BC2 and have their servers for PC, PS3 & XBox360. It will usually streamline the maintenance. This time EA appears to be setting up dedicated servers for Battlefield. They will probably also rent dedicated servers again for PC players. NO MORE LAG!!!!!!
Every Battlefield game has used dedicated servers.
its called making sure lol
lol it's sad that now we have to make sure about what used to be a sure thing. Thanks Activision.
Ya that is pretty sad. Pc gaming 10 years ago is the pinnacle of the online experience. Where developers competed with each other by releasing free maps. Free content. LAN support. Just to outdo each in how they support their game. Valve is the only company left from that era. Not even blizzard can make that claim.
yeah PC is a given...if they are planning 64 players like announced; they aren't going to do it without dedicated servers... this doesn't confirm anything for consoles though...I would be extremely surprised if the PSN got it and XBL did not...but EA has apparently a great relationship with Sony as of late (medal of honor special treatment, Dead space 2 special treatment, saying 'we have a great relationship with Sony' at E3...etc.) but MS almost never does them...or allows them...or whatever their decision is...
BFBC2, BFBC, BF1943, BF2:MC all had dedicated servers on the 360.
^^ i stand corrected...didn't know EA does them regularly with the 360...Ms rarely uses them on their own first party games, so I just assumed nothing was different for 3rd party titles...EA does though, i didn't know that...
All EA games om both the PS3 and 360 have dedicated servers.
How popular is BF2 right now? I'm sure towards the release of 3, it will repopulate like CoD never existed (if only)
Wow... Awesome article, 2 lines with minimal information. This is much better than just reading the scans myself...
Well if it didnt how the hell would anyone play a non laggy game?
I'm excited to be picking up my first PC game sine 2004. Currently planning to build me a monster gaming PC. This game should be delicious.
I hope they're real dedis. Not like those in BO or BC2.
What do you mean "real dedis"? Also, the console version of Black Ops doesn't use dedicated servers.
No "No public server files" shit. No exclusive server providers. And I meant the PC version of BO.
Oh. My guess is that they'll do the same thing they did with Bad Co 2. Limit the server files for a select few providers.
Good to hear, though it was pretty much a given from the get-go.
Anyone who pirates this game is, I don't want to say it on N4G because I'll get banned again.
lol I can't imagine 64player match making.. complete mess!
60 player matchmaking in Resistance 2 worked fine on a console...it was the rest of the competitive multiplayer that hit south...
+ agree if you have an sli waiting for this badboy!
I will by the time it comes out :v
Crossfire too? :3
Got the GTX460 1gb for SLI when it came out. Plays BFBC2 like a charm and can't wait for BF3. It is going to be epic!
Nice. I challenge your 460 sli with my 6850 cf! XD I'm pretty excited to get a 2nd card, though It will be before Crysis2 not BF3 :)
YYYYYEEESSSS! that is what they mean by you can't beat cod by being cod!
