BF3 info from Q&A @ Gamescom

Post by BigBiker05 » Sat Aug 20, 2011 3:09 pm

no splitscreen coop at launch
they are working toward commo rose on consoles, probably not available at launch
unlimited sprint like in bc2, you can also strafe
9 MP maps confirmed “for now” (Operation Metro, Caspian Border)
dog tag customization available after you reach a certain level
limited number of rockets on planes, need to resupply at runway
hardcore mode and infantry only mode available
kill cam in normal gamemode
jets are a spawn point in Conquest
jets can fly really high in BF3, but you’ll lose controls the higher you go (1000m, like in BF2)
deployable 60mm Mortars
conquest flags will have a name and a letter
multiplayer fact sheet only confirms everything shown to this date, AND IS NOT FINAL
no LAN for BF3 at release, probably never (ANTI-CHEAT Measure)
A-10 is available in Multiplayer
AH-6J Littlebird is available in Multiplayer
no automatic hovering for the helicopters, feels more like BF2
stationary Carrier on Wake Island
Working at DICE makes it hard to have a Girlfriend
Punkbustersupport including PB Screenshots
Close cooperation with Even Balance (Punkbuster)
Squad Menu in the GamesCom version is not final yet
Team Deathmatch is coming for all 9 announced maps
Max. 12 vs 12 in TDM
Same classes and customization in TDM as in the other modes
Functional ingamemenu with scoreboard, squadmenu, suicide, options etc.
24 player maps for console are scaled
No dynamically alligned map size based on the numbers of players
No public server files, reason is DICE’ anticheat strategy
Ingame messages to buddies in the friend list
No new info about the batterecorder question yet
Remaining tickets will be shown after end of round in the final game
Autobalance similiar to the one in BC2
No new info about pre-order yet
There is no final decision about origin and the number of soldiers yet
Splitscreen on console is not possible due to the hardware limits on console

My dad seems particularly pumped about this game because he played a lot of BF2 back in the day. But he shone most bright in the commander position, rising at one poitn to #12 in the world back in....'06 I'd like to say. He's read there won't be a commander role in Bf3? Anyone have any insight or opinions on that?

No commander. I sort of wish there were but then again it was easily abused. What is good, they're putting a lot of tasks onto the squad leader and making it so they should try and survive. You also get the most points from squad commands.
