Battlefield 360 to have hi-res texture pack

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.
