Here's an interview with Patrick Bach from Dice. He talks abouzt Multiplayer-Bots, Call of Duty and the Singleplayer-Campaign. Don't worry. It's written in english although on a german site.
oh nomnomnom can't wait, my PC is boiling, roll on fall !! And this is a very interesting interview BTW
"Patrick Bach: This is the truth: All multiplayer games that have a server have problems with it if the game is popular. We actually had five times the traffic than we planned for which meant that we had to scale up five times in about two months. It costs a lot of money and energy to scale up that fast. " I love my Battlefield but their server browser issues have gone back to day 1 of the franchise. From laggy to freezing menu's, random ctd's to server's not popping up or taking minutes to load. These were more core game issue's rather than not having enough servers...
"Sebastian Stange: You dont think that there are a lot of players out there wanting to see something? Patrick Bach: In general people used to have trust because we at Dice have been building Battlefield for so many years. We are using the same team and the same designers. It's the same people building it. We won't screw up completely. We know this shit." Hehe this has, indeed, raised my anticipation right there to new heights.
Cant wait for fall 2011...
Lol. Dice aint fkng around. B3 gona bring the pain.
"...And also because the frostbite 2 engine is build from the ground up to fit on all of this the platforms. So the streaming system, the animation system everything is build to scale no matter what platform you're on.,,," Good news to hear. The PC will definitely be the best version but us console gamers will still get a very decent product considering our older tech. Very informative interview. Cheers....dice Ya gotta luv da Swedes.
"No. We won't have bot-matches in the same way" That sucks...
The bots in BF2 were idiots. I think I played one round and then went online forever.
I cannot wait for this title!!!
