Battlefield 3 "Will Blow People Away"

Interview With Antic Entertainment On Junk Battles on Gaming Union talks with some developers from Antic Entertainment, creators of the browser-based RTS game Junk- Battles, including Fredrik Liliegren, co-founder and former CEO of DICE. Liliegren also discusses the Battlefield series, though his NDA still prevents him from making any real revelations. He does say he thinks Battlefield 3 will impress: "What the PC version is going to be, Battlefield 3, I think it's going to absolutely blow everyone away, but I can't tell you what it is, but it will blow people away." Thanks Joker961.

What will blow me away is if it does not copy modern warfare 2 in every console drivern design decision.

Bad Company 2 didn't copy MW2 so /shrug. Dice has always been pretty good about doing their own thing in the FPS field. Just by virtue of having decent thought out mechanics the games are far better than the stupid instant bullet travel, map nuke, infantry bulletgasm fest that Call of Duty has become.

Blow me away with some better movement. The movement in Battlefield kind of sucks.

Perhaps Project Offset will actually offer something real and meaty to PC gaming.

They won't do anything we WANT them to - they will make the game for the lowest common denominator. We always get F'd because they make it for the console.

And that is the biggest deal to me. Mod support is a must-have because they never get it right do they? We shall see.

Make a pilot class to stop people from using jets as Taxi's and that'll be force teamwork more/better asset management even tho they respawn..let the people who know how to handle flying vehicles do the work.
This is such a great idea.

I'm guessing aircraft would be locked for any other class, therefore only letting pilots use them?

Amazing.

Before he gets all emotional and starts talking hype, let's find out whether PC version will actually be designed with PC in mind and not just console port. If so, support it with facts. Further, will dedicated servers be available free and multiplatform? What about SDK and mod support? If answers are what PC fps players are looking for then we can start talking hype, until then cut the bs.

This guy used to work at DICE so we won't see him giving any detailed info about BF3, unless he wants to get sued. With 1943 and MoH reboot in the pipe for this year we probably won't hear anything official about BF3 until late 2010 or 2011 even.

That being said, I like you hope its being designed with the PC as the lead SKU and consoles getting "streamlined" versions of it, win/win! BioWare did this with Dragon Age so I hope DICE follows their lead with this game development philosophy.

So... 12 players, no dedicated servers, peer to peer matchmaking filled with haxx0rs, and DRM that needs to be connected to the Internet AND your bank account at the same time?

"We can't tell you what it is, but it's gonna blow you away!*"

I'm blown away.

Looks like you are in need of BF2 Project Reality mod.

They won't do anything we WANT them to - they will make the game for the lowest common denominator. We always get F'd because they make it for the console.

BF3 will blow us away? He been talking to Michael Bay or something?

I'll be blown away if the game just isn't a broken mess when it's released and still doesn't have major issues multiple patches later like every other Battlefield game.

Yeah, how about releasing a game that doesn't feel like it's just out of alpha. Bug and hax ridden are what comes to mind when I think of Battlefield games.
