DICE confirmed that Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3 will arrive on two discs when the game releases this October, With more and more games on the console requiring multiple discs, Battlefield 3 is going to be the latest to follow the trend.
Battlefield 3 will be split on two discs with the singleplayer campaign on one disc, and the cooperative/multiplayer on the other. Not the first title to follow this trend, the second disc will also feature content for HD installation. Since the complete single player campaign will be on a single disc, there won’t be any swaps mid-game, unless you are looking to switch to one of the game’s online modes. PS3 edition will ship on one Blu-ray disc.
Microsoft acknowledged developers such as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow creator Mercury Steam have labelled an Xbox 360 “storage problem”. In March, the platform holder reportedly began trialling a new disc format that will add an extra 1GB of storage to Xbox 360’s ageing 7.95GB DVD format. Take a look at BF3’s Leaked Screenshots
