Battlefield 3


 

THE BUZZ: Alan Kertz, Gameplay Designer at DICE has explained the reason behind Battlefield 3 having an online pass for multiplayer access.

The online pass for the game was first mentioned back in March and many fans thought that a game as big as Battlefield would try to avoid the system in order to get the game in as many homes as possible, however this sin’t the case and the inclusion of a pass has been officially confirmed. Kertz explained that the reason is, “because servers cost money, and used games don’t make developers any money.”

EGM’s TAKE: Lets be honest, everyone knew the game would have an online pass considering all EA games do now.

How do you feel about the online pass system? Leave your thoughts below.
