Perfect widescreen gaming support in Battlefield: Bad Company 2?
The Beta of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 already supports Ati Eyefintiy. But for the final version the developers also want to have a look at Nvidia 3D Vision and even 3D Vision Surround.
PC Games Hardware has already reported about the widescreen support of the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta. As you can see on our 7680 x 1600 pixel screenshots, the game increases the horizontal field of view if you use a widescreen display is already compatible to AMD’s Ati Eyefintiy multi monitor technology. Videos, one of which you can watch below, showing the Beta running on three displays have been posted on Youtube.
In our interview with Anders Gyllenberg, producer of the Bad Company 2 PC version, we learned that the developers are also interested in Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology as well as the 3D Vision Surround. At EA’s official Battlefield Blog one of DICE’s architects, Johan Andersson gave some more details on the topics. He also said that although there had been concerns that the increased field of view on multi-monitor systems could be considered cheating by the users, there have not been complains about it yet. The developers are also thinking of the possibility to make the FOV a server option. Besides that Andersson announced that a customizable FOV will be integrated with a future retail patch, but not the Beta.
