THE BUZZ: Daniel Matros, Community Manager for Battlefield 3, has explained the developers’ reasons behind choosing the Operation Metro map for the beta.
“The Alpha was very important from a server side of view. Now we´re in Beta. Not only does the server side need to be tested but also the complete game client,” he said. This called for the team to pick just one map for the beta, Operation Metro, “we have already showed this map and made some big changes to it to enhance gameplay as well as get it more fluent than in the Alpha.”
He finished by saying, “If you feel that this isn’t the right map for you, then perhaps we don’t really agree on what maps we want to see. Other than that, I do hope people will have a great time playing it and will enjoy the Beta.”
EGM’s TAKE: We love the look of Operation Metro and we can’t wait to deploy on September 29th.
