DICE – Battlefield 3 Exceeded Our Expectations

Posted on October 17, 2011 AT 06:26am

THE BUZZ: Lars Gustavsson, Creative Director at DICE, proclaimed the quality of Battlefield 3′s final code surpassed any of the team’s expectations.

“You always need to look at what type of game you have,” he said. ”We can’t release whatever we have just because we have a [launch] date. I think it’s been extreme dedication and focus on the team to make sure we have a great game when the date comes. I would say we have exceeded my expectations in what we managed to accomplish with this game.”

He also revealed that the game was largely complete even before the recent beta began, ”It wasn’t like when things surfaced in the beta we were caught by surprise and started fixing the main game,” he said. “The main game was more or less done. It was more validating what we knew. We just checked our lists of already implemented fixes and said ‘Yeah, yeah we know about that one’ or ‘Oh yeah, that old one,” he said. ”But then, there were things we found. The pace of scoring, that people were scoring so quick took us by surprise. A lot of good findings that will make it a better experience.”

EGM’s TAKE: The team seems pretty happy with the game, and so do the fans from what they’ve seen so far, it all seems to be falling into place nicely.
