Battlefield 3


 

DICE will allow Battlefield 3 players to mess around with the game’s color grading in the next patch, offering a legal replacement for a banned mod.

“There will be a console command for disabling the color grading entirely in the game included with the next PC game client update,” DICE’s Mikael Kalms wrote on the MordorHQ forum. Kalms added that there wouldn’t be a straight up menu option for the setting because the support team can’t field questions and bug reports regarding things that happen with it disabled.

He added that disabling color grading will add no competitive advantage/disadvantage while playing. The option was added following a mod that was released offering the same thing, however DICE warned that anyone using this mod could be banned. Now there’s a legal way.

Will you use the option? Let us know in the comments below.
