Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Bach has said that it isn’t aiming to cause controversy with the mega-shooter.
Bach says the goal in mind is to create an “authentic,” but “fun” game with BF3.
“We’re not trying to base it on any political or religious conflict – controversy is probably a good marketing tool, but we make games,” he told Edge when asked about its story.
“Our goal isn’t to make controversy. I don’t want people to feel bad playing our game. Our goal is to create a fun, entertaining experience. So we are trying to stay away from things that are real – authentic and real don’t have to be the same thing.”
Don’t be expecting the CoD-type villains to be part of Battlefield as well, too.
“No, no supervillains. But you still want your enemy to be clear; you still want your player character to have a clear motivation – that’s something we’re working on to find the right balance.”
Battlefield 3 launches in the US on October 24 in the US and October 27 in the US for PS3, 360 and PC.
