As you may know, a little game called Battlefield 3 has been in the news lately. You may have played the Battlefield: Bad Company series. Battlefield 3 is not a sequel to those games. It’s the next true installment in the Battlefield franchise and the sequel to the 2005 acclaimed hit, Battlefield 2.
DICE has always had a secret love for the PC. Ever since the first installment, Battlefield 1942, the PC community has been the reason the series flourished so well.
DICE’s roots come from the PC community. And actually, the Bad Company series is the only Battlefield games that concentrated on consoles more than the PC, but not only was the concentration on consoles, but it held the game back from the insane amount of players in one game and the rather large maps that PC fans were used too. As imagined, the PC community didn’t like that and complained during the whole series. Well, now we know DICE was listening…
Battlefield 3 was announced on Feb. 4th with a tease trailer along with some news from DICE’s blog, where it was confirmed that the PC version will have 64-player multiplayer and the console version, as of right now, will only have 24. You can also expect other differences that will benefit the PC version greatly.
So, if you have a PC that will most likely run this holiday title, I would buy the PC version, and if not, I would buy a PC, because that’s where all the cool kids are going to be.
