If you’ve played Battlefield: Bad Company 2, you would have no doubt liked the cheesy dialogues and generally goofy setting of the game. When Battlefield 3 comes out, that’s all going to change.
DICE General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson mentioned that the biggest change that players will notice after moving onto Battlefield 3 from Bad Company 2 will be the change in “tone”. In an interview with Games.on.net, he said: “It was different. We had this more – I wouldn’t call it slapstick, but you know, more humourous touch to it.”
He also went on to explain that the reason why Battlfield 3 – being a much-anticipated sequel to a very hardcore Battlefield 2 – includes a singleplayer experience, and not to forget, a co-op campaign: “Why did we need single player, why did we need co-op, it’s because naturally we wanted to introduce more people to our franchise. A lot of people don’t want to jump straight into multiplayer, they want to feel around a bit and then they’re ready to move into online.”
Naturally, allowing players to get a feel of the game before encouraging them to jump on the solid multiplayer experience that DICE will no doubt offer will help deliver the game to a broader and varied audience.
