Battlefield 3 Will ‘Still Look Good On Consoles’
Battlefield 3 was detailed to the developer community – and the press – at EA's GDC event yesterday.
Tilleby told X360 magazine that DICE's Frostbite 2.0 engine which powers the game is “a step beyond our competitors, and it allows us to do more”.
And while the stunning looking Battlefield 3 trailers doing the rounds are clearly rendered on high-end gaming PCs, consoles won't look that different. “The positive thing is that the new rendering technique allows us to do more complex calculations at no extra cost," added Tilleby. "That’s the magic. The game will look very good, even on 360.”
“We knew that people would think that this demo was running on PC, but the good thing is that it’s all based on streaming,” added executive producer Patrick Bach. "I can promise you that the console versions will still look amazing because of the core technology. If you have a 360, we want to use that machine to the maximum.”
