When it was first announced that Battlefield 3 would be available on consoles, PC gamers immediately anticipated the worst. As a result, fears of the “Battlefield experience” being dumbed down on the PC were rampant.
Thankfully, a DICE developer on the Battlefield forums said the following to quell the fears of a few concerned fans:
“PC gaming is alive and well, BFBC2 has proven that and no one at DICE or EA can argue with the numbers. Battlefield 3 needs an extra bit of special attention on the PC. I intend to give it that attention, tradition and our community demand it.”
There you have it, PC gamers shouldn’t have to worry about the Battlefield series becoming a simple port. DICE understands that there is a demand for a more complex experience on the PC–a demand that isn’t quite as strong on consoles.
The Battlefield 3 beta is expected to go live within one year, with keys included in all copies of the limited edition of Medal of Honor. Besides the finite information currently known about the upcoming beta, not much is known about the highly anticipated release.
