Battlefield 4 will not have ‘gimmick’ motion controls
Battlefield 4 will not have motion controls because they don’t make the game better, according to DICE’s Patrick Bach. In a recent interview, the Battlefield producer explained that despite platform holders “throwing money” at the developer to include them, they don’t see their inclusion as something that “makes the game better”.
“We are not interested in things that don’t make the game better,” explained Bach in an interview with EDGE. “There are a lot of gimmicks — people throwing money at us — ‘can you implement support for this quirky control thing?’ No, it doesn’t make the game better.”
When speaking about the rise of these included features in many game, Bach explained DICE’s stance on including things like touchscreen support and motion control features.
“To us it’s the same with motion control and perceptual gaming in general; if it adds, great. If it’s a gimmick, ignore it.”
The gimmick free Battlefield 4 is rumored to arrive in late-October on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.
