Battlefield 3 Can Handle 256 Players, Goes Intimate Instead

When Game Revolution saw Battlefield 3 at GDC, we learned about the role earthquakes play in the game's single-player mode. EA and DICE really wanted to sell this part of the presentation and when an earthquake occurred in the demo, planted audience members stomped their feet on the slightly raised platform. Essentially, EA's PR reps hired a bunch of human rumble paks.
Battlefield 3 details continue to leak and while the human-rumble-pak was impressive, certain multiplayer details are a bit more meaningful.
Speaking with reporters DICE CEO Patrick Soderlund said that the upcoming sequel is capable of MAG sized matches:
The current multiplayer specs for Battlefield 3 still fall below DICE's "fun-zone," but patience is a virtue. I doubt we'll have to wait very long for server-side mods to open up the battlefield to much larger matches. Dedicated servers are a wonderful thing, aren't they?
