Battlefield 3 First Look Preview -- Find Out If The Game Is Worth Gunning For

In a move that will likely inspire Hulk-like expressions of nerdrage from PC gamers all over, DICE has confirmed that there are no plans to release mod tools released for its upcoming Call of Duty killer (they hope), Battlefield 3. The news comes from studio exec Patrick Soderlund, speaking in an interview with the German gaming mag GameStar (via PC Mag).

"If you look at the Frostbite engine, and how complex it is, it’s going to be very difficult for people to mod the game, because of the nature of the set up of levels, of the destruction and all those things… it’s quite tricky," Soderlund said. "So we think it’s going to be too big of a challenge for people to make a mod.”
 
The only challenge I see here is the one DICE just put in front of its fans, to build their own mod tools and create additional content without any help from the developer. The Frostbite 2.0 engine may be complex, but time and experience has long since taught us all that it's never a good idea to underestimate a dedicated army of nerds.
