DICE working on remote play for Battlefield 4, Dinosaur mode “sounds extremely sexy”
During a Q&A with IGN Lars Gustavsson Creative Director at DICE, spoke how DICE intend to avoid terrible players hopping in a helicopter and crashing it into their own team because of the pressure, when asked if they have anything in place to make vehicles less daunting Lars replied:
“We’ve definitely heard that people are afraid of getting in there [and using vehicles like helicopters] and that’s not our intent, so what we’ve done is, we’ve added a test range, which allows you to try out all the hardware ahead of time so that if you want to learn to fly a helicopter you can get in there and you can find the settings that work best for you. And then start doing some stunt flights just to feel safe before you go out and get the responsibility of a bunch of other people sitting in your helicopter, so I truly hope that this will help people feel more safe about trying out the whole Battlefield.”
And then he was asked about dinosaur mode, Lars replied:
“We definitely hear them and I like the thought of it too, so who knows. It definitely sounds extremely sexy and sounds like something that would fit the battlefield universe very well.”
Finally, Lars was asked if Battlefield 4 will have remote play via the PlayStation Vita, it’s up and running but not quite there yet:
“That is the intent. That’s something we’re looking into and working on to see if we can guarantee it. It’s getting there, so it’s, yeah. As always when you’re working on a game you’re still taking one day at a time, but it seems like we’re getting there.”
As always with interviews, we haven’t posted all of the information.
