During an interview with Battlefieldbc, Russian DICE community manager revealed new details on the relatively unheard multiplayer features of Battlefield 3.
Battlefield 3 will use PunkBuster as an anti-cheat system and DICE is still to take the final decision on whether they should bring back the much talked commo-rose feature.
The Punkbuster as anti-cheat system doesn’t come as a surprise, but it would be interesting to see what DICE does in case of commo-rose, since it has been the subject of great debate on official forums with fans split on whether it should be part of the game or NOT.
The original interview is all in Russian but you can read through the translated highlights.
