The closer we get to the launch of Battlefield 3 in October, the more we’re getting to know about the game. It’s also becoming more frustrating to handle the plethora of fans who are seeking answers for questions deemed relevant, and although Rendering Architect at DICE Johan Andersson has taken a hiatus from answering those questions, the studio’s community man has not.
His latest response was directed at a fan who claims Battlefield 3 is basically Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with the Frostbite Engine and tanks, but Daniel Matros, Global Battlefield Community Manager at DICE wasn’t having it.
“I need you to clarify how BF3 isn’t a revamped version of BC2, with prone, jets, larger maps and Frostbite 2 Engine?” asked the fan via twitter.
Before Matros could respond to the first tweet, the fan sent out another: “No Commander? No 6 people in Squads? Only 4 classes? I sure hope there is more good content that will come out. Looking grizzly.”
The community boss then got his chance, schooling said fan in the process: “Why have more than 4 classes when customizations are so big that 7 classes are not needed?”
Most seem to be satisfied with the four classes, but like many other things, you can’t please everyone.
Battlefield 3 comes out on October 25th worldwide for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
