DICE has recently clarified what exactly the deal is with Battlefield 1943′s inclusion in the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 as well as revealed some new information about ranks, private matches, and the day-one patch.
In a follow up to one of our previous articles looking into the fact that Battlefield 1943 may not be included in the PS3 version of Battlefield, DICE has officially announced that “The Limited Edition will not come with BF1943, but with the Back to Karkand expansion.” It seems either DICE has taken back their original promise, or will include it at a later date for PS3 owners. Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
Daniel Matros also had a few interesting things to say this morning as well. First, according to him, “Private matches [are] not on launch for consoles.” Exactly when they will be added has yet to be confirmed. PC fans have been asking whether the day-one patch that was announced earlier will be included in the preload or not. To this, Matros replied: “already integrated in preload.” Matros also had something to say regarding the current state of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. He said, “stuck in between launching a new game, we are taking a look at those issues for BC2 as well.” Many gamers are revisiting BFBC2 one last time before the release of BF3, and it would nice to see the game end on a strong note. Are you going to be playing Bad Company 2 up until the release of BF3?
One fan asked Tomas Danko if any of the multiplayer maps would include earthquakes, like seen in the earlier single player trailers of Battlefield 3. He responded, “there are similar moments on some maps, but not like in SP.”
Lastly, Fredrik Thylander has officially revealed the number of ranks available in Battlefield 3. “Highest rank is colonel 100 star (rank 145)”. Remember, it takes more to rank up in the final build compared to the beta.
