The first person shooter genre is a huge one with franchies like Call of Duty and the like leading the pack. However, EA has been looking to secure their own respective share of the market with their Battlefield series.
While the series has been around for quite some time, it’s Battlefield 3 that many feel will take a hefty chunk of the market aware from Activision’s Call of Duty. Set to drop sometime later this year we’ve already seen a whole slew of media focusing on the game but more information will be known leading up to its release. In fact, DICE CEO Patrick Söderlund recently came forth to speak player limits for the game’s multiplayer and has come up with some pretty promising information.
Apparantly, DICE has tested 256 player gamers but unfortunately will not utilize them – instead focusing on offering 64 player matches as a maximum.
