Will Battlefield 3 Still Support Windows XP?
Posted on Thursday, December 30 @ 17:29:32 Eastern by Daniel BischoffBefore you all start lobbing insults, I know I'm pretty outdated. I've been running XP since my family bought a new computer years ago. When I got my Macbook Pro, I bootcamped an XP partition because the alternative at the time was Vista, and we know the general consensus on that.
Regardless, it looks like I'm going to have to shell out for a nice, shiny new PC and a copy of 7 if I'm going to play Battlefield 3 next year.
A BF 3 fansite dug up this (old, but overlooked) tweet from Johan Andersson, a developer at EA's DICE studio.
While Andersson might not be talking specifically about Battlefield 3, he is referring to Frostbite 2.0, BF3's engine.
You know Frostbite, it's the engine that's been running DICE's Bad Company games and letting you blow the walls out from in front of your enemies. Back when I was living trial card to trial card for Xbox Live Gold, I'd spend more time than necessary leveling every single building in Battlefield 1943's maps.
I remember when Battlefield 2 landed and my friend Zach was the only one with a computer new enough to run it. Everyone was jealous. As Battlefield 3's release looms closer and closer, I'll be looking out for all the "build your own tower on a budget" articles that'll surely pop up on the 'net.
