Dice: Battlefield 3 will be a stunning looking game on the console

In a recent interview with x360aNews, Dice’s Patrick Bach talks about the upcoming Battlefield 3; primarily the gameplay but also on a few key features that separate the PC version from the consoles.

The third instalment in the legendary Battlefield series is promising to push the PC envelope, taking advantage of 64-bit processors to fully realise their new gaming engine, Frostbite 2.0.

But Dice doesn’t want console gamers to feel like they’re getting left in the ditch. Despite the fact that Xbox 360 and PS3 hardware is over 6-years old, Dice is promising to “squeeze every bit” out of the ageing games machines to bring “a stunning looking game on the console”. But make no mistake about it, the PC version is going to be the Mothership as far as Dice and EA are concerned.

Battlefield 3 is slated for a release sometime in the 4th quarter of this year. You can pre-order for PC, Xbox and PS3 from Amazon.
