First Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Details
Okay, so we've seen some of that amazing single-player campaign in Battlefield 3, but the shooter fans have been waiting on those multiplayer details.
Well, if you check the game's blog, you will find a "what we know so far" summary of multiplayer info for the hotly anticipated shooter. They confirm 64 players for PC and 24 players for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, and there will be 4 separate classes, as there were in Bad Company 2. Here's some other "confirmed" stuff:
- Battlefield 2 maps, several BF2 maps will return in a DLC called “Back to Karkand”. The maps are: Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, Wake Island and Sharqi Peninsula.
- New squad features. DICE plans to take the squad system to the next level, offering new features. According to the Game Informer interview, DICE says, "We have some really cool things that we’ll show later when it comes to dictating how you play with friends."
- Weapons and unlocks. BF3 will have more weapons and unlocks than in Bad Company 2, which itself had the most weapons and unlocks of any Battlefield game to date.
- Jets will return, so far only the US F18 and Russian Mig 29 have been spotted in various trailers.
In the "unconfirmed, but likely" section, we find an in-game movie recording and 3 war-theaters: New York, Paris, and Tehran. Anybody else thinking Battlefield 3 has a damn good shot of landing shooter of the year? Or is that just us?
