Battlefield 3 Easter Egg fuels Mirror’s Edge 2 rumours

Battlefield 3: Aftermath

By on December 3, 2012 at 1:16 pm

An easter egg has been discovered in Battlefield 3: Aftermath that appears to be a reference to Mirror’s Edge. Is it another hint that a sequel is coming our way, or just a reference to a game past? Atop a building on the Markaz Monolith  map, facing the vasty nothingness, are Faith’s running shoes. They sort of stick out like a sore thumb in all that beige.

On top of that, if you walk over to them — you can hear young Faith breathing.

So take that as you will. Is this further proof that Mirror’s Edge 2 is “general knowledge”? Or is this an attempt to “gain credibility by association”? (I know that one was a bit of a stretch, quiet you.)

What do you think it means? And what would you prefer? Let us know in the comments.

One of the things i miss the most lately is the ability to click on the pictures in the article, many a time the article has talked about something only to provide me with a pixelated 300×300 shot that I cant see.

 

I have decided to take this as a sign that they’re making ME2 woo! XD

nekosan,

Agree completely. What happened to being able to click on a pic and get a large version of it? Does the image library even exist anymore?

 

Yeah, I agree. Bring back click on pic!

kendrite,

I also agree

 

And while i’m at it why does GON appear to not be unmetered? :S While I was capped games.on.net seemed to load just as slow as any other site. Sure files were still speedy but the website itself was slow as anything (main internode site was super speedy however).

 

The image library doesn’t really exist anymore, at least not as it used to. Our analysis of what people were looking at showed that very, very few people ever looked at the screenshots section, so we shuttered it when we re-designed.

The reason you used to be able to click on images in articles is because they were always directly from the file library. So now that that’s not the case, these images are handled by WordPress, and we haven’t included any code in this template to make each article’s thumbnail enlargeable. That’s certainly something we could look at in the future, as there is a much bigger version of it uploaded with each article, it just gets scaled down to appear in this format.

On the subject of GON being slow, that’s different to it being unmetered, but we didn’t get any fault notifications so I don’t know that anything went wrong with the site. But I’m not really in a position to know anything about that, so, yep.

Yup, not so much care about the image library but the ability to view news article images bigger than a thumbnail, i’m sure many more people would make use of :)

 

Done. I’ll make a note of it for our next release!

 

Tim Colwill,

sweet! thanks Tim, its a feature sorely missed.
