Battlefield 3 mod tools unlikely


Developer says engine too complex to provide mod tools

Posted by Alex 'SpectralShock' V on Jul 5, 2011 - 6:10pm EST (Jul 5, 2011 18:10)

Developer member from DICE Patrick Söderlund has told told German magazine GameStar that there are currently no plans to add modding tools to Battlefield 3, spots PCGamer.

“As of now, we are not going to make any modding tools,” said Söderlund.

“If you look at the Frostbite engine, and how complex it is, it’s going to be very difficult for people to mod the game, because of the nature of the set up of levels, of the destruction and all those things… it’s quite tricky. So we think it’s going to be too big of a challenge for people to make a mod.”

It's dissapointing news, especially due to how hard DICE has been promoting PC as the lead platform for the shooter.

Battlefield 3 is due out on October 25th on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
