Exclusive interview with Karl Magnus Troedsson on Battlefield 3

Directly after today’s EA pre-Gamescom Press Conference, the EA UK community team got an exclusive chance to sit down with Karl Magnus Troedsson from DICE and talk about the newly announced co-op mode for Battlefield 3, how the command rose is making a very late addition to the PC version of the game and how to powerslide a Humvee.

Tom and Rich from Newbreview.com, along with our very own Staff Writer, Adam, recorded this exclusive interview that you can stream or download below. Be sure to check the EA UK Gamescom page later tonight for the full transcript along with impressions of the EA Conference and the games on show.

    They fucked up the squad spawning system. Good job…

    No strategic point in killing a squad leader now other than bonus point gratification. Now with anyone spawning on anyone you have to eliminate an ENTIRE SQUAD in UNDER RESPAWN TIME or they will keep coming back like the plague running about like headless chickens in CoD style play.

    I hope this can still be changed in beta. DICE better know what a drastic move it was to make this decision.
