(CVG): Battlefield 3: "We can do Earthquakes in multiplayer".

"Battlefield 3 developer DICE has again talked up the technical prowess of its Frostbite 2 engine, and teased the chaotic prospect of putting terrain-deforming earthquake into its new multiplayer mode.

Speaking to PSM3 magazine, lead multiplayer designer Lars Gustavsson confirmed the quakes seen in impressive single-player demos are "technically possible" in Battlefield 3 multiplayer games.

"We're still looking into ambient destruction in multi-player; it's still too early to say really," he told the mag.

"It's technically possible to have earthquakes in multi-player using Frostbite 2. We feel like kids walking into sweet shops with Frostbite - it has so many features we never knew we needed, and we're still figuring out how best to use them"

Wow that would be cool.

Previously known as Win7Xbox 360

I think they won't risk it.could go wrong and maybe spoil it.

That would just bug me...The camera shaking on the Black Ops map "launch" when the rocket takes off makes me insane!!

who cares about "ambient destruction" we want direct destruction

...seriously

 

y'know, I'll be fine with it if I can still blow walls out and such.....the buildings don't have to collapse....some is ok, but if I can blow big holes and walls out of buildings, then I'll be happy...then a shack becomes simply that, a shack...visual cover, not an indestructible balsa wood bunker, like the garbage sacks and picket fences in games like Homefront *shudders*

 

I would like to see destruction the same as BC2,Not bothered about earthquakes and stuff this is needless and would be too much distraction from the game.you are right about Homefront.

Do not think I would like to play in a natural disaster.

As long as they have the micro destruction, like in the single player video, I'll be happy as Skeeter when he graduated the 6th grade.

just give me plenty of stuff to blow up.  How about doors that you can open and close?  Thermal vision/night vision.  What you guys did with bc2 having a downloadable vietnam pack.  Give us a wwII map pack.  

What earthquakes?
