Battlefield 3 "offers so much more" than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Liu has told Gamasutra.
The comparison to Modern Warfare 3 is welcome, says Liu. "It feels good. They're behemoths, and just the notion that we would be able to take a chunk from their gamers is awesome."
However, Liu believes his game has the upper hand. "They're both military shooters, but in terms of flavour and style they're different. But we offer so much more than they do, I think; but that's me."
Liu added: "I think we wanted to have a lot of variety, and different flavours within the game, so we could appeal to different kinds of gamers, and the co-op was one of those things that we identified as like, 'We probably need this. A lot of people want to play together, and they don't want to compete.' So we offer that because of that."
Battlefield 3 will launch October 28 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
