No plans for BF3 mod tools

Written by David Stellmack


Frostbite 3 engine is just too much
Battlefield fans that were hopeful that DICE would provide mod tools for its upcoming release of Battlefield 3 are going to be sad to learn that, at least for right now, it isn’t in the cards. In an interview with German site GameStar EA Europe, VP Patrick Solderlund claims that the Frostbite 3 engine would “present too much of a challenge for people.”

The complexity of the destructible environments makes things “tricky” at best for those without extensive experience. In the end, we believe that the situation might change; and while DICE is apparently open to the possibility in the future, currently it does not see people taking on the challenge of making mods for Battlefield 3.

Based on past experience, the mod community for Battlefield 3 has always been quite strong, and we suspect even if DICE does not supply the mod tools you will see modders bringing out mods for Battlefield 3. We do think, however, without DICE providing any tools it will take longer.

We will just have to see if enough Battlefield fans on the PC can get DICE to change its mind about the mod tools for the PC version of Battlefield 3.

Watch the German GameStar interview after the break.
