Here's an analysis comparing Call of Duty: Black Ops strategy for its DLC with Battlefield 3's upcoming map packs. Is money the new name of the game?
They both have way different strategies. COD: Map Packs BF: Expansions (Even all of the DLC maps were free)
What do you mean expansions? So new weapons as well? In COD you can choose whatever weapons you want for any map. In BF its specific weapons for each side which is kinda stupid. Anyway you can bet the BF3 DLC will be $10-$15 just like MW3.
No, it's era specific. Bfbc2 vietnam took place in the 60s so bringing new and old guns cross expansion would be completely redundant. Also, with the back to karkand expansion, the bf2 era was a couple of years before bf3. And yes bf3 DLC will cost $10-$15 but they won't cosist of just 4 maps. They usually have new vehicles, character models, guns, and maps. Also an expansion for BF2 let you become spec ops operatives with zip lines and crossbows. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Quality DLC way better than what COD can push out.
It will be $10-15 (maybe more), but if you've ever played BF2, you will know that the expansions they do are very special. Take the spec ops expansion that Hufandpuf mentioned. They added a completely different class system which included zip-lines to maneuver from roof to roof, tear gas, climbing ropes that you can throw, and much more including new weapons, factions, maps, and vehicles. The European map pack for BF2 was also pretty special which included new maps(which were pretty damn big), new factions, new guns, and new vehicles which were all related to weapons and vehicles the militaries in Europe used.
That's the good thing about BF DLCs before -- they were free. Hopefully, that will be the case for this year.
I want expansions like Vietnam. Especially a dino horde mode then BF3 will be complete.
t-rex hunting sounds great. That would be boss. Yeah I said boss.
I just have to ask, where is all this dino horde mode talk coming from? You're like the 8th person I've seen say it, did one of the DICE devs joke about it?
fk yea wat happened to dinosaurs
Keep that zombie horde kiddie sht out of our BF games.
Similar, please god don't have overprice DLC.
Similar? No way. Vietnam was brilliant, and for $15! for $15 on BO you got 4(?) crappy maps that didn't make the cut for the game's release. So instead of wasting them, they make people pay for them. I'm not bashing, as I reached 15th prestige, I played the crap out of that game...but I didn't buy a single map pack. BF3, you can't come quick enough.
killing t rex n rapters intead of zombies in a quality game would be amazing
Also, just for the fun of it, I asked Aleksander Grondel about the much-rumored "dinosaurs" in upcoming multiplayer DLC. At this, a mischievous glint shone in his eye and he gave an enigmatic smile while fumbling a little and trying to choose the best words to answer the question. "I would leave that with... We'll see." So yeah, dinosaurs CONFIRMED. Journalism! http://www.destructoid.com/...
