Upcoming shooter Battlefield 3 will include a single player campaign which spans at least 12-hours, according to reports.
DICE’s general manager Karl Troedsson revealed the news in a recent interview with Games.on.net.
“Naturally we want to introduce more people to our franchise,” Troedsson explained. “A lot of people don’t want to jump straight into multiplayer. They want to feel around a bit [before] they’re ready to move over to online.
“The hardcore online people, they don’t care, they’re just straight in. Maybe they don’t even touch the campaign. But we want to get more people in, invite more people into the franchise. That’s one of the main reasons why we have this different part of the game.”
Plenty of games have received criticism from fans for the length of their single player campaigns recently, most notably Homefront, so this will no doubt be good news to FPS lovers.
