You can customize your appearance in Battlefield 3

Battlefield Blog: "Today we got a screenshot from the IGN sneak preview of the new Battlefield 3 Multiplayer maps they released on the final game. When they were changing their load out it shows us something that we haven't seen before. In the bottom right there is a 4th option and it says "Appearance". "

Awesome, I wonder what we get to change. Any guess?

Laxman2162616d ago

Hopefully not too much that all the characters start running around looking nothing like actual soldiers, but it would be nice to be able to change just some basic things, enough to make our soldiers our own. I like the level of customisation in Reach, that kind of thing would be good in Battlefield I reckon.

DaCajun2616d ago

It's probably those skins(specact kit)that some places are including for pre-ordering like at Best Buy. I'm pretty sure greedy a$$ EA will put them out later as DLC for a price for the ones who didn't get it with a pre-order.

"Bad Company 3"

..... ..... .... /facepalm

SLEDGE2616d ago

Cause you can change your skin its a cod clone?
When could you do that in cod?
Besides from "Choose sniper, get sniper skin", etc

Getowned2616d ago

I don't even know where you made that connection .

Liquid_Ocelot2616d ago

"Bad Company 3" ?
Man, wtf -_-

Xalaris2616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )

COD = weapon sensitive appearance customization
BC (WTF?) = two skins available for each class

I love this place. So much sense.
I think you should try playing Socom, Halo or Rainbow Six, you then wouldn't be making such retarded comments.

and what's even scarier, you got 4 agrees.

yeah at most it might be camo well as the area where you can customize your dog tags as you unlock them, and steal them from others...

visible character customization can be tough to sync properly, especially in a shooter that already has a huge level of weapon and load out customization...not to mention destruction...So whatever it is, i hope their servers are up for the beta was a complete mess with latency, and it had zero 'appearance' options...

Highlife2616d ago

Playing dress up in this game doesn't intrest me. Just like face paint in black opps.

caperjim2616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )

I miss the days of Rainbow six character customization. It was almost limitless, especially clothing color. You even could scan your face and put it on your character. Also how fast you moved depended on how much gear you wore. It added a bit of realism.

No big shooters of today come close to that level of customizing. Maybe Battlefield 3 still has some surprises up its sleeve.

Hufandpuf2616d ago

I don't think color options would be good, but face scanning sound awesome. I remember they had face scanning on ps2 games.

KwietStorm2616d ago

You just made me sad. The customization they had was definitely cool. I've been waiting for ubi to get off their ass and make a new Rainbow already.

tails132616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )


Colour options were good, you could change them to suit which map you were playing.

Beinge able to customize ur appearance would b sweet,i just wish there was a 3rd person option,that would make it even more epic

Laxman2162616d ago

Third person in Battlefield? Are you kidding?

A-Glorious-Dawn2616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )

You know, a third person game on the scale of BF with the same graphics would actually be epic...

A-Glorious-Dawn2616d ago

@disagrees What? really? you don't think it would be cool if done well?

Do you people have any imagination what so ever?

Trunkz Jr2616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )


I remember trying to play in 3rd person view in BF1942 Desert Combat mod, it was never a pretty sight but Battlefield Vehicles it's always worked well tho some prefer camera locks on servers so everyone has to play the same for balance.

If they added 3rd person INF in Battlefield it would completely change the formula and just lose the whole battlefield feel to begin with.

Cenobia2616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )


Warhawk is basically what you are looking for. The regular person combat just needs some work, which I'm hoping Starhawk will fix.

It is a bad idea to make 3rd person an _option_. In 3rd person view people can see around corners and move more strategically, which is an unfair advantage. I guess Rainbow Six did it, but it changes the gameplay completely.

NCAzrael2616d ago


Meh, 3rd person shooters just don't appeal to me that much. 3rd person action games like GTA are great, but games that focus on just shooting in 3rd person I find to be rather dull. I guess that's why I'm not a Gears of War fan.

Go play Battlefield Heroes.

xYLeinen2617d ago (Edited 2617d ago )

I'm guessing this is the option to select skins for your character. Such as skins you get when pre-ordering from selected retailers.

Shackdaddy8362617d ago

I think that's what they did in BC2. It would be pretty cool to unlock skins regularly though...

xYLeinen2617d ago

It would be cool to unlock skins but I doubt it. Wouldn't make much sense for the skin pre-order incentive tbh.

Remember you also got skins as DLC in BC2. Think it was the specact DLC or so. I'm guessing they will do something similar with BF3.

EazyC2617d ago

I'll be disappointed if this is the case! It would be such a cool feature to add in (full customization)

ECM0NEY2616d ago

It would be nice but I think its kind of pointless in a FPS. Nobody is really looking at what we look like when we are shooting them and your squad mates probably wont either.

Ezio20482616d ago

i shall become Chuck Norris.

Liquid_Ocelot2616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )

Chuck Norris is a bitch if you ask me :S

Xalaris2616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )

lol @ disagrees.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who sighs at the sight of his name.

Liquid_Ocelot2615d ago

Thank God I'm not the only one -_-
