Battlefield 3 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3: New Details Emerge

We have great news now for those of you that are waiting to hear more information on the upcoming Battlefield 3 game, as Alan Kertz — senior gameplay designer at DICE — has recently revealed a few more details about the much anticipated first-person shooter.

As Gary Johnson already mentioned in a previous post here, the PC version is said to include online multiplayer for up to 64 players. However, according to a recent article by H. Bogard over at, online multiplayer matches on the console versions will be limited to 24 players.

We also know that Prone will be featured in all three versions of the Battlefield 3 game, not just on the PC. While the Battlefield 3 game is said to feature the return of knives/dog tags and a friendly fire option (turned off by default), it won’t include grapple hooks, ziplines or tracer darts.

According to an article over on the website, some of the major locations that will be featured in the Battlefield 3 game include Paris, Tehran and New York. The upcoming game will also feature an updated version of the Battlefield Bad Company 2 game’s spotting system.

The game will be out sometime later this year, and will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.

I don't understand why it's only on PC you'll get 60 players game. After all Resistance got 60 players multiplayer. MAG as 256 too… Why not BF BC3?


Pre-order limited edition the second I can!


Cool, the game will also run on Frostbite 2.0. After being disconnected from 6 games in a row on COD BO this weekend, I finally decided to get myself Battlefield BC2 on the PS3.
