Battlefield 3 on Xbox will be split over two discs
Take two discs into the shower? Well that’d just be silly, but you’ll need two discs when it comes to playing Battlefield 3 on the Xbox, no bones about it. At least if you want to play multiplayer, anyway.
EA has today confirmed that when it comes to Microsoft’s console, the game will be split with the single player campaign on one disc, and the multiplayer, co-operative aspect plus an HD installation on the second.
That’s not a big deal, really, and it gives you some idea of the weight of the visuals which EA has crammed into this shooter. Modern Warfare 3, meanwhile, is sticking by a mantra of it’s all about the fun and not graphics – with the bonus of a more fluid frame rate.
Which is fair enough, although we suspect Battlefield 3 is also going to be plenty of fun. The solid frame rate issue, however, is a worry on the console medium (and indeed on older PCs).
That wasn’t the only piece of Battlefield 3 news to emerge recently, with the launch of fresh trailer this weekend just gone.
Entitled Operation Guillotine, it shows an operation at night in the city of Tehran, with rockets and grenades flying, plus confusion and carnage everywhere. It’s action packed, but pretty short – apparently a follow-up trailer is due this Friday.
The trailer is on the Battlefield YouTube channel, and you can tune in here later this week to see the second part.
Battlefield 3 is due out on October 28th.
