EA/DICE have confirmed that the 64 player conquest version of Battlefield 3's Caspian Border will be open to the public. Very exciting news!
On consoles as a new download or something, or does the 360 and PS3 miss it? I know it says 64 player, thought it might just scale it down or something. EDIT: Oops, just read PC only in the article. Might wanna change tags :P
Yeah its PC ONLY. Oh my days, I can't wait to play this again. Caspian Border on PC is just epic. Lets just hope I can actually get into a server without having to wait 7 leap years this time!
I envy you. I wish I could play this game on my PC. My processing power is more than enough, I just have a terrible graphics card (according to http://www.systemrequiremen...
And all the wrongs have been made right. The battlefield is at peace. That is until the bombs start dropping and tracers light up the sky.
F**K YES. I got one game on this map before they shut it down, and I've been craving it ever since. This is a real Battlefield map.
Dammit, there goes my weekend....
Bah... Wish I'd known this before buying rage to play this wkend. Oh well that'll have to wait a while till I'm through with the beta again.
I'd rather wait for the final version to play this map. Much like Uncharted 3, I stopped playing the beta because I don't want to get burnt out on it and end up hardly playing it when it releases (that's why I rarely played BC2). Plus, I've seen the vids of vehicles getting stuck in the ground & shooting into the air. I'd rather have all of that be fixed before I experience that map.
i did the same thing, 25hrs on the BC2 beta then only played the final for like 10 and was done. up to 8hr on BF3 beta right now
i will also rather wait for the final version, it's just 3 more weeks away, i think i will survive that :) (btw i'm on my 31st rank in the PS3 beta)
About time DICE got their act together. This should have been the beta's launch map.
On all platforms man, baaad marketing with op metro, that map is not what BF is about at all...
I know right? Op Metro doesn't show what BF is really all about. DICE knows this will sell on consoles more than on PC, simply due to the larger install base of console players. What concerns and angers me more, is that they are obviously trying to buy CoD fans with this map. I'm afraid that if that tactic works then we will have a ruined BF experience, as we'll see the likes of Soap MacTavish and Captain Price running around the maps trying to kill people with knives and shotguns, instead of going for objectives and utilizing tactical team play, and choosing a class loadout that's appropriate for the situation.
It actually makes more sense to use operation metro. It's a smaller map and the gameplay is more conducive to cod players. They'll attract more sales that way. I know it's not the Bf we all love but its smart. The quicker rounds make for mote matches and server tests also
I'm all for upping the amount of players and fans of Battlefield but the Beta alone says it all. Airing this map to try and suck the CoD players in. Hell I don't know if you've seen it or it's just me but camping has gone up tenfold with these guys jumping in and not grasping the dynamics of Battlefield, it's a team based game not lone wolf. I hope CoD players do end up buying this and I also hope Metro is the only map on the game like this. Put the CoD guys on a proper BF map and it's going to be like them at the controls of a bullet train into a brick wall. :D Easy pickings.
I KNEW IT!
Dammit D: Why'd it have to be Thanksgiving weekend when I'm 400 KM from my computer :(
