DICE: Happy To Be Back on PC "For Real Now"

More BF3: A video interview on GeForce.com from the Eurogamer Expo talks with a man who "needs no introduction," Karl Magnusson, General Manager at DICE (either we or they do need an introduction, since we thought his name was Karl Magnus Troedsson). Karl discusses Battlefield 3, their upcoming military shooter sequel, touching on the beta test, their plans to support the game long after launch, improved visuals over past games, and more. On the topic of improved visuals, he explains their joy at being back on the PC "for real now." Here's that part:

It also feels good to be back on PC for real now. You know, we're bringing back jets, we have 64-players. We really pushed the PC as a main platform, especially in the beginning of the development of Battlefield 3. So hopefully everyone will start building their rigs at home and really build something that can utilize all the visual quality of the game.

Bots are a PC thing? Well you could argue RO2 has bots.. and that they are completely broken.. just like the BF2 bots and the BF1942 bots but yeah ;p

Bots sounds good on paper, but in reality all you did in BF2 with bots was to have 60 join the enemy team, and do a 4 v 60 match (and still win!)

Good bots like the ones used in UT2k4 require the entire map system to be made with bots in mind, for paths to be set and areas to be defined.

It sounds like something easy until you realize that you have to REDO every single map for bot-use, you can not do MP map and BOT map the same. (as the layers have to be baked)

Unless of course, bots have the same abilities as humans (which they rarely do when planes and helicopters are involved...)

Careful, there are some hardcore Blue's posters who only play bots in what are supposed to be MP games.
