Future Battlefield Games May Let You Play as the Enemy

Posted on October 5, 2011 AT 11:36am

THE BUZZ: Karl-Magnus Troedsson, general manager at DICE, has revealed that future Battlefield titles may let you play from the “other side” of conflicts.

OXM asked him how he would feel about setting a game during a recent conflict and telling it from the “other side,” to which he replied:

“We have considered that. Battlefield has always had a legacy of playing both sides in multiplayer, and while we don’t want to make a political statement, there is something interesting about the idea of playing the other side during a typically depicted conflict, like World War II or something more contemporary.”

“This is one of the areas where I’m not really sure the audience would be ready for it. There are a lot of cultural differences some people might not be ready for,” he added. ”We’ll see what we do in future.”

EGM’s TAKE: Games set during recent conflicts are still untested waters for developers, and the recent Six Days In Fallujah fiasco has put a lot of people off the idea.

Would you like to see an FPS set in a more realistic modern day setting? Leave your thoughts below.
