Battlefield 3 lead designer David Goldfarb has said the PC version of the upcoming shooter is getting some “special effort”. Goldfarb was answering a question in a tweet.
Looks like the best MP FPS game will be even better on PC. I'm still getting it for my 360 or PS3 because I don't have a computer that runs games well.
Why did GYPSYGIB get 2 disagrees for telling the truth? I don't understand. I swear N4G has Teenage Mutant Disagree Trolls that run around the site marking disagrees on every single post. BF2 is the best Multi Player game on the PC, Some may say Arma II but it's so hardcore that even I (a huge fan of Arma II) will go with BF2 as it has great balance between Core and casual game play. Sure then we have the Halo debate but as a Pc gamer I have Halo 1 & 2 sitting dormant on a disc some where while BF2 mods get get heavy burn on my HDD. Very few PC gamers like Halo and no 360 fanboy likes anything not named Halo. So if any PS3 fans out there have Played Halo and BF2 let me know which one you prefer. Thanks! Oh almost forgot No DX9 for Battlefield 3 PC, this news is like loosing my virginity all over again. DICE is AWESOME!!
Does it actually matter? Let people disagree, what does it affect you or even gypsygib...? Can't wait for it, hopefully something fresh in the military fps genre. Better have planes.
Better not drop the balls DICE. BC2 was more than alright, but we need the real thing, the new BF2, the return of the king ! Can't wait to put my mouse on that one.
Oooh yes. Battlefield 2 finally needs a worthy successor.
As it SHOULD.
Mouse support confirmed! Oh wait, that is Infinity Ward's special effort.
Can't wait. Bad Company is nice, but I've been waiting for the real sequel to Battlefield 2. I'll probably get a console version and a PC version, just for the sake of being a huge fan.
I wouldn't mind if the PC version was almost totally different, beyond graphics and physics, but with the feel of the guns and such. It would make buying it on multiple platforms enticing.
Yeah, like the "special effort" you put in with BC2? Sorry, not good enough. It was only a bit better than Infinity Ward's "efforts" for MW2. Just admit that you want more sales by going multiplatform, and that the overall quality is going to be determined by the console versions. Either way, you're not getting my money.
totally agree with you mate. ill believe it when i see this "effort" and what it is by definition by DICE. im tried of developers telling us how great things are going to be but fall way short of what a PC game should be.
I have to disagree with you on this. I played BC2 on 360 PS3 and PC. I'm a Pc gamer and BC2 PC was not the same as the console versions. The game play and feel was totally different. Sure BC2 PC had bigger maps, better detail and graphics, more players but the feel was more Core on PC versus the semi arcade feel of the console versions. Bad Company is not supposed to feel like Battlefield 2 because Bad Comapany is a console series ported to PC but DICE being the loyal Pc DEVS that they are made sure BC2 had great quality in preparation for the return of Battlefield 3. Battlefield 3 Pc will be everything that PC gamers have been telling Dice to correct for four years. I have NO WORRIES!
I think they could make maps bigger on PS3 and also more players in one game. MAG and Resistance being a good example. MAG just needs better graphics. BF3 i think if Dice do the game seperate for each console like Crytek are doing with Crysis, it would improve the game ALOT more. And not just port it E.G on 360 or PS3. They should put 'Special effort' on all systems, PC, PS3 and 360. I dont have a PC that could run any good game so i stick to consoles, and i am a Battlefield fan. Loved them all (Couple of years back i had a decent Laptop that could run BF2 etc). Bad Company 2 is brilliant, hence i still play it. Black ops i traded it 2 weeks after i got it (and i got it on Release day).
Of course they want more sales. "Either way, you're not getting my money." That's exactly the problem - no one buys pc games anymore so why bother?
I just hope they don't gimp the player count in BF3 to accommodate consoles limitations. BF2 is 64 players, BF3 should meet that number if not increase the maximum. Battlefields are supposed to be chaotic with all the action going around, not a handful of people in a small map. I hate the stupid low player count games. People who likes low player counts thinks it is more "intimate", oh they meant tactical. Haha!
I only ever played 64 player matches in Battlefield 2. That game was so huge and epic.
It is getting special effort to make the PC version the same as xbox. jk I hope the PC version will have metro 2033 graphics with awesome gameplay.
I think BF3 should double the max player count in MAG. 512! Bwuahaha. I can dream, can't I? :P
http://bf3blog.com/2010/12/... I practice my aim in counter strike 1.6!! can't wait for battlefield 3!! lmao @ everything else besides Red Orchestra 2!!! That is all..
BFBC2 looks really sexy on high settings so I can't wait to see bfbc3! plus the sound is incredible I hope they do something about the auto-balance, a lot of the time the teams are unfair and tanks only make it worse
why do people keep saying "bfbc3"
Because Battlefield Bad Company 3 will definitely come out iF you've played the end of BC2 you will see the Russians advancing into America. But on Topic, Battlefield 3 should be sweet.
Just make it fully DX11 with a nice heavy dose of Tessellation and that will be perfect
Would of been great if we could of played this summer....
I'm fine with the pc having extra things like DX11, Server lists etc. But all should platforms have the same player count. (around 60 hopefully).
Let's put this in the "What else do you expect him to say" pile and then deal with it when you still can't crotch in BF3. Unless this is made by Blizzard, you can expect it to sell at least 4-5x times more between the PS3 and 360 than the PC release. Even if it sells a million on a PC, which is pretty good PC numbers, it's not enough of an incentive for them to actively design the PC version from the ground up when they can just port it from the console and clean it up a bit. Sure, it could be the best console to PC port ever, maybe it has DX11, maybe the FOV isn't all jacked up, they did a decent job with Bad Company 2, but at the end of the day, it's still a console port that didn't even begin to push the abilities of current generation PC hardware. Prove me wrong Dice, I'm begging you.
Aslong as the console versions aren't neglected then I don't mind, but I trust Dice to make a good polished game.
Its actually the other way around. I dont need the console versions holding back the PC version. If anyone is going to lose here (someone has too) I hope its the console versions. I'm still a loyal player of BF2 and I'm nervous for this game coming out on all systems.
Well seeing as how there are more console orientated gamers, like myself, I wouldn't want a game that was neglected for the PC version. Whilst I can appreciate that gaming PCs are ahead of consoles, I think you can understand that console versions need just as much attention. Like I said before, Dice are good devs, so they'll probably make all versions look great and play well.
I've never played a battlefield game. Only BC 1 & 2. Is there a big difference?
BF= Bigger PC style maps. BC= BF with smaller maps With BF the maps are big enough to fly jets and bombers in. There is also a RTS element in BF where a player can be the team's commander can call in airstrikes and set objectives. The only thing as epic as BF on the console is MAG's 128 players domination mode for the PS3. Too bad nobody plays MAG anymore and domination games take forever to start.
Ah okay thanks. Damn that is epic. I agree about MAG. Its pretty empty now :/
