Battlefield 360 to have hi-res texture pack

Friday, 7th October 2011 14:59 GMT By Johnny Cullen

DICE producer Patrick Liu has confirmed that Battlefield 3 on Xbox 360 will have the ability to install a hi-res texture pack on its second disc.

The scenario is similar to what happened with id and the 360 release of RAGE, which came in three discs for campaign and multiplayer. Battlefield 3 on 360 will come in two over single-play and multiplayer.

“There’s a voluntary install on the 360,” Liu told Gamerzines at a recent London event. “I think Rage did it as well, where you can install content to stream higher res textures.

“We’re pushing that technology to the limit, and compared to our competitors, I would argue that we’re the best looking game.”

Liu wouldn’t clarify what modes – single-play, mutliplay and co-op – would be on which disc.

Battlefield 3 launches on PS3, 360 and PC on October 25 in the US and October 28 in Europe. New shots here.

    @1 I think, assuming I’m reading his actually awkwardly worded quote right, that yes PS3 will have same textures and presumerably, like Rage, will mandatory install them. 360 as usual has optional install but it sounds like DICE are trying to urge textures are installed rather than run from disk.

    Or maybe this is a genuine difference and only 360 has the hi-res texture option. Hard to know with such poor source.

    No doubt follow up statements will clarify the original quote.

    I think PS3 version will have it too… or it is a huge bias.

    Yes, the PS3 really needs to be referenced in comparison here to help consumers make an educated purchasing decision.

    I expect it to be on the PS3 disc already, but i’m very happy about this news. The textures really didn’t look that good..no wait…alot of them flat out sucked in the beta, unacceptable!!!!
