Battlefield 3 will feature some of the most beloved maps from the Battlefield series! Can you imagine your favorite BF maps beefed up with the new engine? These maps will be featured for free if you pre-order your copy before the release date! But I’m sure everyone reading this and probably half of the gamers out there already have got their pre-order in. Here is a little info from the lead designer, Niklas Fegraeus explaining new engine on the old maps :
“From a gameplay perspective, destruction is the biggest addition compared to the original map in Battlefield 2 back in 2005. I remember this particular building by the square in the original where players could defend very effectively. Now, with the destructive power of Frostbite 2, someone can just RPG that building and expose the defenders within. At the same time, we need to be careful not to add destruction that breaks the tried and tested game flow of the map.”
