Battlefield 3 Mod Shows Proper Night Maps for Multiplayer
Do you want night maps in Battlefield 3? It seems a few guys have made it and it looks good!
While Battlefield 3 has the Tehran Highway level as its "night" map for Battlefield 3, making the level darker than usual and giving it a blue-ish tinge isn't really a nighttime level in a lot of players' eyes.
Well, it seems YouTube user KiwiDog has managed to do just what DICE wasn't able to...and that's a proper night map for Battlefield 3!
In the video below, we get to see a night "mod" match of Grand Bazaar played "King of the Hill" style. This means other bases except B are off-limits. I don't know about you, but I'm really digging what I see here. It even gives players a real reason to use the IRNV scope. Of course, you can use that or the dreaded "flashlight of the gods," but that might just act as a beacon for "I'm here, shoot me!"
Give it a watch for yourself.
While this looks cool now, do also keep in mind that this could get very annoying quick, too. Unfortunately, we won't get to test that theory as DICE has been adamant in prohibiting mod tools for Battlefield 3.
Hopefully, more mods like this are made and shared so we can at least have a nice example of what could have been, no?
Would you like to see proper nighttime maps in Battlefield 3 or is this footage proof that this won't work for long gameplay sessions?
