While a lot of fans got their wish for weapon adjustments, bug fixes and whatnot in the latest patch for Battlefield 3, one major feature is still missing. I’m, of course, talking about a recording/theatre mode – or as Battlefield 2 puts it a “Battlecorder.”
Battlecorder, a feature present in Battlefield 2, lets players record and share their crazy kills, montages and outrageous stunts to the public. This was coined by DICE as “Battlefield Moments,” instances in the game that can’t be replicated and can only happen in a Battlefield game.
Well, it seems DICE might be implementing the feature still. If you go to Battlefield 3’s stat-tracking social media site – Battlelog, and hover on the “multiplayer” tab, you’ll see an option to “view matches.” But the game currently doesn’t support this feature so there are murmurs that DICE will be adding a Spectator mode for the game soon.
Aside from that bit of info, a user on the Battlelog forums also unearthed these bits of codes within the site itself.
Yep, you read that list right. You can clearly see the “Spectator” word repeated a few times in it. Hopefully, this means DICE is really hell-bent on including this feature in the game soon.
Keep in mind that this isn’t an outright confirmation that a Spectator mode and Battlecorder will make it into the game, and as such, we’re treating it as a rumor for now.
