Battlefield 3 developer Karl Magnus reveals in Nvidia interview at Gamescom 2011 , that the PC version will be the best release and says gamers will need decent PC specs to run the game.
While no recommended system requirements have been released yet, Magnus stated PC gamers “should start aiming pretty high if they want to run everything on the highest setting.” Even though DICE does want to be able to make the Frostbite Engine 2-powered game run on a wide variety of PCs, Magnus said, “We would like people to really build some really monster machines to run this on with the best graphics card they can get their hands on. “
The main point that stood out in the interview was the mention of 64 player online multiplayer maps, which is insane as the console versions will be capped at 24 players.In my opinion an extra 40 players on a map will create a higher level of realism as a real “Battlefield” has more than 24 soldiers on it, just another reason why Battlefield 3 is aimed more at PC gamers than their console counterparts.
Battlefield 3 will be launching worldwide in October 2011.
