BF3 Rumours

The initial BF3 rumours:

– Set in modern day (just like BF2)

– 40 players PER team. 40 vs 40 battles.

– Squads and Commanders are present, introduced are “Battalions” which consist of three to four squads.

– Two playable factions, NATO and MEC (Middle Eastern Coalition)

– Same “ticket-based” [conquest] gameplay style as before

– BF3 Maps are mostly urban, based in Middle East

– Five playable classes; Sniper, Assault, Engineer, Medic and Support

– Will feature 48 different BF3 vehicles (24 for each faction)

– Will feature 34 different BF3 weapons (17 for each faction) and another 22 unlocks (for both factions), in total 56 different weapons.

– Other unlocks include different types of ammunition, body armor, helmets, camouflage and accessories.

– Battlefield 3 Online stats tracking, awards and “real world ranks”

– “Soldier” feature, looks like MMO-styled characters and avatars

– Battlefield 3 Ranked servers will be available for resellers weeks before the game ships (for testing, apparently, ed.)

– In-game replay and recording feature

– VoIP, friends list, in-game IM-client and “extensive clan support”

– Built in auto software updater (no more patches!, ed.)

– Widows Vista and OS X

– A map is mentioned by name, called “Baghdad Burning”, and appears to be a massive urban map, similar to BF2’s very popular “Strike at Karkand”.

– Among the leaked features are some impressively large numbers: 56 total weapons, 48 total vehicles, and most stupefying of all, 40 vs. 40 battles. With teams that big, it’s no wonder they’re also reportedly adding a new tier to the squad mechanics introduced in Battlefield 2. Squads and the commander role return, but now three or four squads will form a battalion.

    Great news, looks like this is being developed primarily for the PC, with a port to consoles. No, bad thing at all, it hopefully means we’ll get some great features on the consoles. Probably not as big as 40 v 40 battles, but I’d be happy with even 30 v 30.

    Let’s hope DICE take their time with this game, although I have heard that they have already been working on it for a few years.
