DICE’s Karl Magnus explains why jets and 64 player maps are coming back to Battlefield 3.
Enough talking about the game, I just want to play it already!
You'll get your hands on it next month, if you bought Medal of Honor. I don't know about the people who preordered, though.
The MoH LE buyers get access to beta 48hours before it becomes available to public. So... all of us get to try it next month next month.
sadly for me the jets it's a deal breaker.. unless you have a decent team people will totally abuse these and i can't stand that crap.. either gun or gun or something well balanced like warhawk but i can tell this is gonna simply frustrate me..
Actually Bad Company 1, 2 and Medal of Honor were all betas or in other meaning DICE was experimenting in what should they do to perfect BF3. And here is the result after all these releases (I don't mean that previous DICE games this gen were crap). But they are nearly making a true sequel to the one and only BF2
Specially, Medal of Honor, Multiplayer on that game was definitively an experiment.
Am I the only one that thought Medal of Honor had a good multiplayer?
Is the console version going to have jets and large maps ? Atleast 32 on consoles but why not 64?
Hardware limitations, consoles are 6 years old now. Lol why the disagrees, its not 2006 anymore. Time passes tech advances. Consoles were already old designs in 2006. Its obvious in 2011 they can only be considered very old.
I'm wondering the same thing. I haven't seen any hard specs for the PS3 version. I'm fine with 32 player maps, but are there going to be jets?
Jets are confirmed for consoles As for your disagrees, Substance, some people just can't accept the fact that their consoles aren't as powerful as they are lead to believe.
MAG had 256 players.
Yes it did. And Zipper had to use low res textures and limited animations to even get the game to run smooth. Kinda like the pixilated tres in XBOX BC2, horrible looking compared to the PS3 version.
It's actually 24 player maps on console.
it's not even 32 player on consoles holmes, it's 24 i.e. 12v12 12 people on one team, 12 on another that's all they can fit with that graphical fidelity and still maintain 20-30 frames. I am quite sure if they could do more they would, hopefully they remake for the next gen consoles in 2012 ....or just get a $150 grapics card and play it on pc!
cause flying in Jets gives such a hard-on! Cause 32 vs. 32 on Super size jumbo maps is Jizz pants fun!
Of course BF3 will include Jets! The question is: will they have as much air space as the PC version. Consoles will have smaller, more streamlined maps though. I can't find the article but I know i've read and heard that other than the number of players, map size, and graphical capabilities, all the features of the game will be consistent across all platforms.
@Mister V The Jets can fly outside the accesible map on consoles to maneuver. Consoles could have bigger maps they didnt made them smaller because they cant handle it. But because consoles cant handle 64 players and thus they have to decrease map size. If they wouldnt there would be no proper multiplayer on the map because you would barely see someone. Jets on consoles can fly over parts that are not accesible to foot soldiers to turn around, if that wouldnt be possible each time you try to turn around you would explode.
64 players are just too much, there a lot going, too much for my tiny brain to handle so i'm going to stick with cod and my 8 player free for all.
crap, i gotta pre-order this soon so i can get my beta code, i forgot the beta was coming so soon
That's it!!!! Am gonna build me a gaming rig so I can enjoy this beast at it fulliest!!! But I don't know what gpu to get!
I've been thinking about that for a while now. I feel I should get this particular game on PC in order to enjoy it to the max. Unfortunately, I got an iPad 2 this year and I don't think I can afford another significant expense. @sonyps4fan I told you on another article to go to the off topic forum. Guys, just bubble his comment down.
I built a beast of a computer this week so I could play all the heavy hitter PC games in their greatest glory. i7 2600k overclocked to 4.3ghz Radeon 4950 2 gigs of graphic ram 16 gigs of DDR3 ram running at 1600. She's a beast!
uhh Odion why didn't you get a DX11 capable card?
He probably ment 6950, probably a mistype. There is no model such as 4950. Would be a very bad mismatch for the system if he did get a 4000 series gpu at this point.
id personally wait for the new gpus which are coming out early 2012 but if you cant wait id recommend a gtx 570
560ti GTX in my opinion is the best GPU out there! it's cool, quiet, and $250 or less and it overclocks like a champ. Will run almost everything at max settings with stock clocks (Metro2033 is the only problem for it). On the AMD side HD6950 2GB model and unlock it to a HD6970
Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor Xigmatek GAIA SD1283 56.3 CFM CPU Cooler ASRock Z68 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 motherboard G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive 2x MSI Radeon HD 6970 2GB Video Card (CrossFire) Cooler Master HAF X ATX Full Tower Case SeaSonic 850W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply Sony DDU1681S-0B DVD/CD Drive Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) This is a good rig and its expensive.
2 6850 is pretty dang good but if you don't have space either go with amd 6950 or gtx560 ti.
whats your budget? low end you can snag a nvidia 450, still get dx11 and run the game at 1080p with most bells and whistles at around 30-45 frames for about $110 http://www.newegg.com/Produ... mid spec, grab a 560ti for about $235 and you can bump a few more eye candies up and get 40-60 frames http://www.newegg.com/Produ... high end grab a gtx 580 and got to town at 60 frames it'll cost you though, about $450 http://www.newegg.com/Produ...
I bought Medal of Honor Limited edition on the PS3 but will i be able to play the BF3 beta on PC?
You should be able to, I bought MOH LE on PS3 and got an Alpha invite for PC and an email from EA to say the PC beta begins September.
I bet DICE could make a game exclusively about aerial vehicular combat and it would still beast over most other developer's games that are only about that.
Just saying resistance 2 on ps3 had 64 players
Just saying Battlefield 3 has far bigger maps, better graphics and destruction.
