Most modern games add multiplayer elements where non previously existed, leading the developers to reassure fans by insisting that the multi-player wont affect the single-player campaign. It’s the complete opposite for Battlefield, a series (barring the Bad Company spin-off) that’s been entirely multiplayer focused until now. Yes, Battlefield 3 will include a single player campaign.
DICE’s executive producer Patrick Bach says
“With Battlefield 3, people who like multiplayer will get a huge multiplayer game. People who like single-player will get a quality campaign. Neither will take away from the other.”
“Most people that hate singleplayer are the ones that love multiplayer. That’s fine – you don’t have to play it,” he told Edge.
“We want the product to cater for the people who do like singleplayer and also the people who like multiplayer – and we are adding co-op, too – trying to fill the gaps all the way from the hardcore full-on Conquest mode, to the narrative-driven singleplayer.
“People just have to understand that we aren’t taking people away from one thing or the other. We’re just making the product bigger.”
