Xbox 360 owners who decide to install Battlefield 3 to the console’s hard drive will be rewarded with higher textures.
“There’s a voluntary install on the 360, I think Rage did it as well, where you can install content to stream higher res textures,” Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Liu told Gamerzines.
“We’re pushing that technology to the limit, and compared to our competitors, I would argue that we’re the best looking game.”
It’s not known if the PS3 version will also allow for the same hi-res textures on the Blu-ray disc, although perhaps that’s something a mandatory install will solve.
Battlefield 3 is released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on October 28th.
