Welcome to H*EA*T. We have fun playing games like Battlefield.

Chat with Lars Gustavsson

10th Anniversary Banner

As part of the10th Anniversary celebrations from DICE and EA, we have had many things happen already – a sale on the Battlefield series games being $10, a retrospective including the introduction movie. Lots of neat stuff!

In this case, It is nice to have a sit down with thanks to the battlelog blog a chat with Lars Gustavsson – who has been around since the original Codename Eagle (that’s before even Battlefield 1942!)

Some choice quotes from it:

What is your favorite Battlefield?

Lars Gustavsson:
Battlefield 1942 is the “first born” and will always be dear to me. So is Battlefield 2 since we refined so many ideas from BF1942. Still, I’m extremely proud of where we managed to take Battlefield 3 and love playing it, even one year post launch.

 

And this glimmer of hope for competitive gaming

[Igor]
In past 10 years games have made fantastic jump in all senses: graphics, sound, gameplay etc. Have you ever thought what Battlefield will be like in 10 years? What are your expectations?

Lars Gustavsson:
No one could have guessed what the last ten years have brought us and to look ahead for another ten years is hard…I do think and hope that the social aspect as well as the competitive nature of Battlefield is so strong that it can thrive no matter what the future holds

Battlefield 1942 is 10 years old!

Get out your party streamers everyone – the original Battlefield game is celebrating it’s tenth birthday today.

Battlefield 1942 was launched with a variety of maps, with a youthful Wake island complete with steerable aircraft carriers, submarines and previously unheard of amount of players participating in a team based battle. Even back in its time, trick’s had begun to take shape with mischievous players catching a ride on the wingtips of planes.

 

To celebrate, here is a prelaunch trailer featurinig in a full circle the first map in Battlefield – Wake Island.

To show you that some tricks never get old, see the old favorite Rendezook from the old days:

Night mod for BF3

Courtesy of PCGamer, a talented person has come out alleging that he has to quote 300, “Blot out the sun”.

The sun is disabled in this modification, and has the effect of making maps become almost pitch black. Ambient lighting still takes effect however, with smoke grenades and explosions casting wonderful light and shadows over your fighting zone in the game.

Here is an actual gameplay clip:

Although according to the PC Gamer article a DICE representative he was quick to talk down this modification and the possiblity of future ones occuring, the fact that this has been made at all may help begin the proliferation of other wonderful modifications in the future.

To clarify also – this is something which can only run on a modified, unranked and punkbuster free server. It is unknown about when or if this modification will come out, and how it is applied. I’m just excited enough to see grand bazaar in night like in the second clip!

Old School vs New School
