Q&A with Digital IllusionsPlanet Xbox has posted an interview with Digital Illusions Ola Holmdahl, who is the game designer for Battlefield 1942. As you read the interview you will see just how much detail Digital Illusions is putting into this title. Check out this little tasty tidbit.
PlanetXbox: Will the weapons be accurately modeled and featured in Battlefield 1942? Will each side have its own set of weapons that are true to what was used in the war?
DICE: They certainly are. If you know your WWII vehicles, youre probably at an advantage, since vehicles and weapons resemble their historical counterparts in effect as well as look. Gameplay is just as important here as it is in scenario design, though, and we have chosen to represent the strengths and weaknesses of different equipment in ways that promote a solid gaming experience, rather than by cramming the game full of simulator type realism.
