I'll be keeping a eye out for it. loved bf2 and both bc's. I prefer it to cod as it's so much more realistic.
BC 2 was too bloated to be as good as BF2, i hope BF3 is as good as 2... would give me a decent reason to upgrade the PC (As thats how it should be played).
If you can find me one being made soley for the PC I will eat something a human being probably shouldnt. (Excluding "recent-ish" releases, eg Crysis)
There is a much larger market for console gaming, and thus is where the monies is.
No-one cares about PC geeks anymore!
It's not that no one cares for the pc geeks, its just that the console gimps have to subsidise their gaming as 99% of them.would rather not pay.
Think there's more news coming either today or tomorrow.
I've no idea how the jets will work in the game. The maps must be f*cking HUGE.
Damnit, knew I should have made mine an official thread!
Jets were fine in BF2, I guess the maps were a bit bigger from memory but not much. You won't be able to fly them though, if you thought choppers were hard in BC2...
Lol, no worries mate I was only joking. Cheers Revels.
I wonder if you will start levels from aircraft carriers like BF2 and 1943. That was good way to get an early flag capture parachuting out over a base.
I've only played BC2 so I'm a Battlefield n00b, really.
Bad Company 2 was also the first MP game I've played. 270 hours later...
F*cking spiders 270 hrs! I really want to get back into it just never have the time, after getting all excited about Vietnam I haven't touched it yet.
I like to see what they will change dynamically from the Bad Company series for this.
This excites me greatly!
Hopefully they have learnt from the Pwn-Plane from BF2 - which was the Chinese J-10. That thing was just too good compared to the other jets. They also need to add decent amounts of AA - something which is severely lacking from some BC2 maps where the choppers can fire from range with impunity.
The lying prone addition is a good one - especially if they make it semi-realistic and it takes a few secs to go down/get up from it.
But the final part I'm hoping for is the large selection of classes. It really does promote an extra criteria of team play when there are a wide range of class types - rather than just the four from the likes of BC2 and BF2142. BF2 had 7 iirc and it was much better for it, imo.
Currently on Rank 35 at the minute - I'm committed to getting to Rank 50!

It has to be played on a PC tbh.
Could use keyboard/mouse aswell as joystick etc for flying planes.
Maps were massive in BF2, planes were fun.
Console all the way for me. Mainly because :
a) My laptop isn't a games machine.
b) I prefer using a pad
c) All my friends are on XBL and/or PSN, so much better MP experience.
I wish all consoles issued a keyboard and mouse as a standard option!
BF BC 2 is brilliant, much prefer it to Black ops and MOH, BUT online you have to be part of a good TEAM for your in sh1t!
