No Mod Support for Battlefield 4


News that should surprise absolutely no one - Battlefield 4 won't have any mod support.

Quote:
PCG: Is there any chance of Battlefield 4 being moddable?

Karl-Magnus Troedsson, DICE GM: We get that question a lot. I always answer the same thing, and then the community calls me bad names. We get the feedback, we understand it. We also would like to see more player-created content, but we would never do something like this if we feel we couldn’t do this 100 percent. That means we need to have the right tools available, we need to have the right security around this regarding what parts of the engine we let loose, so to say. So for BF4 we don’t have any planned mod support, I have to be blunt about saying that. We don’t.
From PC Gamer

At least this time they aren't insultingly calling the developer tools "too hard for the community".

Security & profit deal.

EA has 2 next-gen engine tech(Ignite for sports IP's and Frostbite for the rest) that's shared studio-wide. Plus, next-gen games from major publishers are integrated into cloud service. No mods allowed for all of EA's(and most likely for most major publishers) games moving forward since stakes are too high.

I don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings, but you'd have to be a fucking idiot to shell out more money to this evil empire.

EA reigns supreme as chief fuckheads. Goddamit I hate those pricks.

This is ridiculous, but it's EA after all.

As much as I want to agree, I always say buy what you like and sorry, but... I love the Dead Space series so as long as they continue to make them I'll be in line. And telling people they are idiots because they want to buy something they like is a little silly.

I have lost all faith in your ability to buy every game under the sun at launch. Is there NOTHING left to believe in?

Oh, and how to have fun with it? Uninstall it.

Between all the people saying dont buy this, dont buy that, we wont have anything to play. Just a silly concept, why dont you just say, I wont be buying an EA product and leave our wallets alone. Lol.

Drunk explains some, and everyone company is evil in some way. Some on a consumer level, others in a employee level, and others on both.

This. OT - Sucks about the mod support. Douchebags. Desert Combat got some of the people at DICE a job. Furthermore, it can lead to products you can buy down the line and provide access to untapped talent. EA's shortsighted in this aspect.

Kendra Daniels

That character is the epitome of everything wrong with character design in videogames. If she could piss off back to whatever centerfold she came from that'd be great.

People base game purchases on mod support? Seriously? This is nitch at best, I doubt it will make even a slight dent in sales.

Thanks for the heads up on the $5 BF3. Origin sucks ass though. You can't buy a game as a gift? Do they not want to sell games or something?
