BF3 Dinosaurs vs. Black Ops 2 Zombies

By Posted 20 Jun 2012, 14:44

Is everyone getting carried away with the whole dinosaurs mode idea in Battlefield 3? Right now, there are multiple threads up on Battlelog with players begging DICE to make this a reality, but do we really want DICE to give in and essentially make a Battlefield version of COD Zombies?

To fill you in if you have no idea what we’re talking about, see our previous article here which lists some evidence why a dinosaur survival mode is a real possibility for the coming Aftermath DLC expansion. The real excitement began when DICE’s community manager decided to post this message on Reddit:

”Glad to see the enthusiasm. Really, though, if this is something you guys want the best way to go about it is to try to get #BF3Dinos off the ground on Twitter. If that **** trends it’s pretty hard to ignore.”

Right now, Battlefield 3 is quite a happy place we’d say. After the troubles of previous patch updates, the addition of four brand new maps and 10 new weapons seems to have lightened the mood somewhat. Anticipation for Armored Kill is as high as ever, although we still have a few months to wait until that arrives in September.

As a regular Battlefield player though, would you admit that you would want to see a Battlefield alternative to Call of Duty zombies, or should Battlefield carry on as normal avoiding this massive ‘game changer’ to the franchise. The idea of surviving multiple dinosaur attacks with your friends on current BF3 maps is an interesting one, but we can’t help but feel it may be a little gimmicky.

Perhaps DICE feels the same way, since it would be a massive change up to the game and they just threw that up on Reddit to test the waters with community reaction. Some Battlefield 3 players may not want to be associated with any sort of comparisons with Call of Duty zombies, while others would obviously love for DICE to make this change.

It’s no secret that zombies has turned into a phenomenon for Treyarch and Activision, so does EA want a piece of the survival co-op action with their primary franchise too? Dinosaurs in Battlefield has ‘big risk’ written all over it, but it all depends how DICE implements it to work with their current system – providing it happens of course.

Do you want a zombie survival style, dinosaurs add-on to Battlefield 3 or is this a terrible idea?

  • Love BF3 hate CQ

    Why not?  it couldn’t be any worse or more gimmicky then their CoD – whoops I mean Close Quarters map pack.  What a pile of crap at least 80% of the base who have the expansion are no longer playing any of the maps/modes as they have completed their in game assignments and achivements required by the new pack.

    • Lolz ^

      The Nearly all of the new assignment’s don’t require you to play on Close Quarters. Except for the M5K – Gun Master. 

      • Charrmelon

        and the jng-90, conquest domination

    • Djo47

      not true

    • Jkcooke86

      Must suck to know a BF dlc is better than whole of a CoD experience, Close Quarters is amazing, and Dinosaur mode would just make even more ppl realize BF is a vastly better game, though blacks ops 2 looks like the first CoD game worth playing in over a half decade, zombies can’t compete with the furiosity of t-rexes, raptors, and the rest of the Dino horde

    I loved CQ map pack, so I dont know what this r-tard is talking about, its fast paced, the effects are awesome, the action is non stop, its a thrill everytime, I played 4hrs straight just last night. I still love the vehicle warfare, but its a nice change of pace going in CQs

  • STEBOOOO

    WHY NOT? If anything if they do do this they could make a revolutionize gaming like COD zombies did. Gaming these days is all about change and diversity what could this do but not succed

  • Cameywilliam

    have a zombie dlc with huge maps. and the ability to use helicopters jets and land veichles

  • Dimitri

    Nazi Dinos……Me Gusta

    Better question… Why the hell would anyone NOT want more content?

  • Jolooney

    Give me some dino action please !

  • Djo47

    Killing a triceratops with an lmg after it comes bursting through a wall, or blowing away a trex with a rocket from the back of a jeep would earn my 15-30 dollars very easily if the content to price point was right. Destruction. Dinos. Could be great. Could even take a hint from l4d and make multiplayer/coop a two teamed endeavor.

    I really hope I didn’t pay for Premium to get a retarded dinosaur mode. I will be pissed.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Tegernako Tim Durocher

       Why the hell would you have to buy Premium?

      You people are freaking dumb. All that would happen is that we’d get it earlier.

      How is it a good buisiness model to ignore the large amount that will never buy Premium.

      You’re talking about EA…you’re seriously thinking that they’d pass up a chance to get more money?

      …on that train of thought, if you think its “retarded” why would it even bother you if it does/doesn’t come out?

  • Tom Wells97

    thisounds like the shittest rip off of a great mode( zombies). it will ruin bf3

    • http://www.facebook.com/Tegernako Tim Durocher

      COD didn’t invent the horde mode. You might even say, oh god, COD stole the idea from other games!

    • Mr. Dinosaur

      GTFO CoD fanboy. Dinosaurs are friggin huge and vicous while the zombies just slap you! It wont ruin bf3 it will gain more sales because of the craziness. If the 97 in your name represents your birth year you shoulden’t be plaing these games anyway kid.

      • Hdjcjen

        Haha- you call him a fanboy, yet look at your comment?! It may ruin BF3 sales (which aren’t too high in comparison to CoD anyway), or it could bring it back from the brink of death (something much needed for them). We’ll have to wait and see what happens, though I personally hope they don’t, especially if it’s released around November time as it will not survive agains Zombies. Sorry but it’s true- many people I know are getting Black Ops 2 simply because of Zombies.

        • DarkSoul

          You do know, 67% of Cod sales are from kids under the age of 13. BF3 sales is 92% from people 18 and over… But what ever, Dinosoars mode would be a great mode, due to the fact battlefield 3 has such massive maps, and tend to get bigger in each update. Making the environmental issues lower then cod, for a fact… 98% of everything is destructible in Bf3, and only 1.9% in Cod. If kids never bought cod to use aim bot and hacks, and say that their so good, cods sales would not be larger then battlefield 3. Actually, not even close…

    Shut up and take my money!

    If DICE wants to stay competitive they need to fix bugs.  No one wants to play a crappy buggy game.  They should stop worrying about how they’re going to squeeze the next penny out of their customers.

    Imagine the following: Your on the back of a jeep and looking out to the back of the jeep. A T-Rex is following and you are shooting it while the driver is going as fast as he can. And sometimes the dino tries to bite you and tear you off of the jeep. AWESOME. What would make it better: If you die -> no respawn.
