First there was a mod that let you get rid of colour grading, but DICE said it was a hack and could get you banned. Then, they said that they’d include a console command to disable it in the next patch, because people clearly wanted it. And now, they’ve changed their mind again: there will NOT be a console command. Why? To preserve the “unique identity” of Battlefield 3.
A follow-up post from DICE senior programmer Mikael Kalms reads as follows:
“After discussing this further with my colleagues, we have decided to not implement this feature. This is the studio’s take on this matter, and I support this decision:
“As a studio, it is extremely important for us at DICE to have a unique identity in our games, not only from a gameplay perspective, but visually as well. While we appreciate that some players might want a slightly different look to the game, we are proud of the visual identity of Battlefield 3 and do not wish to change it.”
I apologize for getting anybody’s hopes up, and if you have any further questions on this subject, I will refer back to the above statement.”
That’s that, then.
