TVGB: "Battlefield 3 will have three times the amount of downloadable content of last year's Battlefield: Bad Company 2, it was revealed during an EA investors call today."
Hopefully it will be free like the BFBC2 map packs, otherwise, there's going to be a lot of unhappy gamers.
I dont like being unhappy so they better make me happy or I wont be happy.
oh no! gamer's having to pay for DLC!!!! Being cheap bastards is getting old people.
Apparently you weren't a gamer back when all DLC was free...Paid DLC pretty much made its appearance on this gen of consoles, and has slowly infected the PC gaming market as well. I suppose a lot of it has to do with the fact that internet speeds can now support such a "feature", but games used to ship more complete, extra features were added for free, and instead of yearly installments they just created expansion packs when there was enough extra content to justify the price tag.
... then EA/Dice has just lost my day 1 purchase. I'm sure they'll be crying in their sleep tonight, but still...(!)
Hopefully it's not DLC like this: DLC #1: So-and-so map, now playable for hardcore game mode DLC #2: So-and-so map, now playable with no vehicles
Hopefully it will be like BF2's expansion packs.
Yeah DLC is just stupid. I would rather have expansion packs.
i don't mind paying for it personally
Just give me expansion paks like BF2. almost guarantee a BF3 Vietnam, Battlefield 2143....maybe but can't wait for BF3 Space Warfare! you know it's coming.
If Its Paid Then How Is That Good
I don't mind paying for dlc like vietnam, if its just a few more maps it better be free.
$1 per map would be nice! I would buy 15 maps for $15!
Just don't pull another Onslaught mode on us... I was suckered into paying £8 for that crap.
I quite liked it. Definitely should've been cheaper though.
I hope they keep their word... If their DLC's are like the "Vietnam Map Pack," (for bad company 2) i'll be over the moon.
im guessing some will be free and some wont
No point of buying DLC pack if the console community aren't strong in dedication to this game so it can last lets say 2 years :)
Unfortunately the bulk of the console shooter fans will be loyal to Modern Warfare 2/3 But DICE could change this by not gimping the maps, having plenty of fun modes, and similar perks of Cod etc. The console version should have had 64 player MP with reduced destruction/graphics quality.
Sounds good to me
If the packs are on par with the Vietnam DLC, bring it on.
free on pc, i'm calling it now
BC2 had 10 Pieces of DLC (7 Map Packs/Vietnam/SPECAT and Onslaught so 20 pieces of DLC sounds right up my alley.
I don't want any costly DLC just so you can practice using the vehicles, playing bots on the various maps. Multiplayer Vehicle/Map practice should come with the disk .... bots a bonus.
Hopefully it'll be proper DLC not some "VIP" bullshit unlocks that are already contained on the disc.
believe it when I see it. remember when they said we'd get free game modes and maps with BC2. All they did was use existing maps and put different game modes on them, releasing them in intervals instead of with the games release. Total BS ploy.
Thats good because most of BC2 dlc were the same maps for different game modes.
As long as it's not like how the "dlc" for BC2 was. That still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Not counting the expansion of course because that was ACTUAL dlc. C'MON OCTOBER!!!
