XMNR: The Limited Edition of Battlefield 3 will come with a four maps from Battlefield 2 that have been recreated with the Frostbite 2.0 engine. Battlefield players have always had their favorites but now we know which maps will be included.
separating the audience from day one,eh?
true, but Im definately picking up Limited Edition, just hope it's for all platforms and Karkand is a great map
real battlefield fans will not be seperated. the limited edition will not cost any more. but sharqi hellz ya.
It may come free with preorder. BC2 came with some free maps but it just sucked online MP didn't work for some days on PS3 version after launch. KZ3 came with an additional map pack too for preorder. Regardless, DICE knows how to make map packs.
Old maps should be free, end of story.
pfft tell that to Activision
Well i dont know about free as they had to take time to convert them to the new engine and what not and that takes time and resources. However, they should be super super cheap. Like a buck a map or something.
@Guigsy, it's not like they're just re-releasing already made maps, they have to make them from scratch, just with the same layout as the classic BF2 maps. It's not BFBC2 maps.
Well obviously, but at the end of the day its the same maps people have been playing for over 5 years. It would be foolish of them to charge us, like Activision did with Modern Warfare 2.
All battlefield BC 2 maps were great. But make them DLC atleast EA, we all know youre good at that.
@Captain Sort of like Killzone 3's retro map pack?
Im sorry but maps being different at launch is stupid. I didnt like that they did it for KZ3 and i dont like that they are doing it for BF3...
I don't really care how they do it with the maps, doing it how BFBC2 was would be ideal with them all being free if you bought it new. The only major complaint I had about the maps was when I would be in a group with a buddy who didn't have the maps, rather than only pair us with the maps he had it would load us into a game where he didn't have the map and just boot him from the group, which is just stupid.
For a moment therei thought it said crackland
I say release a SDK. Then Gamers will have tons of maps. Well PC wise anyway.
