Battlefield 3 to support 64 on PC

Written by David Stellmack


Console versions to be limited to 24
More news on Battlefield 3 comes to light. This time around online player limits are said to have been set. Online play for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 console versions of the game are said to be limited to 24 players, while the PC version will offer support for a massive 64 players.

The limit of 24 for the console version really is not that big of a deal, as many FPS titles for consoles are normally limited to 24 players. The support for 64 players on the PC version is also not really a surprise, as this has been the max in previous Battlefield titles in the past.

It would seem from some of the leaked news that is circulating that Battlefield 3 will have a big focus on urban environments with locations such as Paris, Tehran and New York to be part of the package.

A number of retailers are now accepting pre-orders for Battlefield 3, but we suspect that most buyers really want to know when it will arrive; and right now, beyond hearing that it will arrive in the fall, we don’t know much and anything more we believe is speculation. Plans are still for a beta to precede the release of the game, but when that will arrive is still a mystery. Some of our sources seem to believe that it will be very late summer or early fall.

So...we suspect that buyers..will want to know when the game arrives? Noo..really? It's redundant text like this that makes you think twice.

Well it's common knowledge that the game is released in the fall, so this is as good a guess as any. I could have told you that, no need for, "Some of my sources" to have informed me.

I hope that they don't try to jam 64 players into a 24 player console map. God, that would be awful. It would also suck from the other end to be a console player, doing 12v12, on a map meant for 32v32.

I hope they go back to the BF2 system, where maps were different sizes based on the number of players.

Considering that Battlefield 1942 was released in 2002 with 64 players, I was really hoping to see at least 128 players, especially considering the squad based nature of BF2 and presumably BF3.

Still, can't wait.

He's not going to come to this one, since it contradicts his "NOBODY CARES ABOUT PC GAMING!!111!!one!!!!eleven 1!" nonsense. And once this news is pointed out to him elsewhere, he's going to say that it's only one game or some crap.

Here's an impersonator, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9gN2hdybFY

Actually he is busy attending troll school. His trolling skills were called into question and he was found wanting by his troll friends and has since been sent back to troll school to learn skills such as "Making no sense 101" "TYPING IN CAPS, YES IT DOES MAKE PPL BELIEVE YOU! 102" and "Why staying on topic is a trolls worst nightmare 102". He'll be back later looking for attention believe me.

As for this story, this story and the recent story about spotting and prone are all good news for fans of the series like myself. Also, adding Karkand and some of the other BF2 maps is a plus as well. If the news about Karkand and the other BF2 maps being in the limited edition, I will be buying my first Limited edition ever. Now hurry up and release the game already.

Quoting Warrior24_7:
This is not surprising since the console is the focus of effort in gaming development and the PC is the step child. As I said before nobody cares about PC gaming.



Anything else to add to this..?
