Battlefield 3 Much More Realistic than Bad CompanyBy Dustin Mendel | September 10, 2011 | News | 6 comments | Share
Battlefield 3 lead designer Daniel Goldfarb recently took to the Battlefield blog to explain some of the differences between the highly anticipated BF3 and the previous Bad Company games.
We’ve seen through the gameplay videos that have already been released that Battlefield 3 will contain the same destructive environments and chaotic firefights that made the Bad Company games so popular, but Goldfarb stressed that the tone of BF3’s story would be like comparing “Saving Private Ryan and Hogan’s Heroes.”
He explained that the Bad Company series was always meant to be “Indiana Jones with an assault rifle,” but that with Battlefield 3, the goal is to “connect with things and emotions that we have never really tried or had the means to properly connect to before.” The Bad Company games were never concerned with attaching much emotion or consequence to the actions of the main characters, but Battlefield 3 looks to change that, as Goldfarb said the game will put people “in contexts where they make emotionally valid choices” to make a “stronger, more emotional and more immersive” experience.
Combined with the enhanced gameplay mechanics (and jets), Battlefield 3 is all but a guaranteed success when it releases for PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 25.
