Well, bigger is to be expected.
Not long ago, developer DICE confirmed that Battlefield 3 would boast 10 times the amount of in-game unlocks than Battlefield: Bad Company 2 . And of course, with the help of the oft-discussed Frostbite 2 engine, BF3 is getting a ton of attention.
Yes, that attention has resulted in higher popularity and better visibility for the Battlefield brand. In another update at the Battlefield Blog , DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson said the BF3 beta has already seen 6 times the number of testers involved in the Bad Company 2 beta. Oh, and he also added that the beta is "not representative of the final game." Remember that.
"The final game will look, play, and sound better than the open beta. You have helped making sure of that."
See? Lest we forget, that's the purpose of a beta . Anyway, you can bet that BF3 will be one of the biggest releases of the year; some analysts are expecting it to sell 10-12 million copies before all is said and done. Will you be one of the many purchasers come October 25?
