Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike Summary
Battlefield 2142 had a Titan mode which featured a hovering air-carrier that had to be brought down, or defended. Now DICE are bringing it back as the re-imagined Carrier Assault in the upcoming Naval Assault DLC.
The studio is yet to go into detail about how you'll sink the carrier, but Titan mode involved holding key missile launchers that bombarded the air-carrier. Naval Strike is due in late March.
Lars Gustavsson of Swedish dev DICE confirms there's no 'Battlefield 2143' in the works at the studio, "but I would love to make it," he said. A lot of people "ran over and wanted to apply" for 2142.
The sci-fi nature of the futuristic Battlefield affords greater "creative freedom" as its not constrained by a "historical and contemporary" setting. The in-development Battlefield 4 is set in modern day.
DICE understands PC gamer fears that Battlefield 3 will fall prey to 'consolization' what with it arriving for both Xbox 360 and PS3 too, but don't panic.
They know porting anything from consoles gets "flamed hard," as PC gamers "are more forgiving" of complexity. BF3 gets "special attention" on PC.
