Battlefield 3 developer wants to stay away from sticky moral issues, won’t allow engage-able civilians in the game

While a number of games are now allowing the player to decide how they want to act – naughty or nice – this isn’t an idea the developers of Battlefield 3 feel comfortable with.

“if you put the player in front of a choice where they can do good things or bad things, they will do bad things, go dark side – because people think it’s cool to be naughty, they won’t be caught,” Battlefield 3 executive producer Patrick Bach told Rock Paper Shotgun.

“In a game where it’s more authentic, when you have a gun in your hand and a child in front of you what would happen? Well the player would probably shoot that child.”

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 entered into somewhat questionable ground with its “No Russian” stage, and that’s a situation Bach and the rest of the folks at DICE want to avoid for Battlefield 3.

“Me personally, I’m trying to stay away from civilians in games like BF because I think people will do bad. I don’t want to see videos on the internet where people shoot civilians. That’s something I will sanitize by removing that feature from the game.”
