| DICE: No mods for Battlefield 4 - briefly|
|(hx) 06:38 PM EDT - Jun,13 2013 |
| DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson confirmed to PC Gamer at E3 that Battlefield 4 will not support mods. Troedsson caveated that user-generated content is something that DICE finds very interesting, and that its something the studio has been talking about at a high level.
PCG: Is there any chance of Battlefield 4 being moddable?
Karl-Magnus Troedsson, DICE GM: We get that question a lot. I always answer the same thing, and then the community calls me bad names. We get the feedback, we understand it. We also would like to see more player-created content, but we would never do something like this if we feel we couldnt do this 100 percent. That means we need to have the right tools available, we need to have the right security around this regarding what parts of the engine we let loose, so to say. So for BF4 we dont have any planned mod support, I have to be blunt about saying that. We dont.

|And I don't have any planned interesting in funding your shit either.|

|I never did, so this won't have an impact on my buying decision.
However, I do feel bad for those who'd want to extend their gaming experience by modding because I have been screwed numerous times like this. But, I bought quite a few of such games anyway because there's always a camp that won't rest until they unpack the game data, mod it and repackage it again for everyone to enjoy.

|Remember that opening a game up to modding also opens it up to hackers. I'd rather do without mods than play a game infested with 14 year-old script kiddies loaded to the gills on cheat hacks.|

|Well, yes, it has two edges and yes, it can be a major pain in the butt.
Over the years, I kinda figured out how to differentiate modifications that come from reliable sources and which ones are from the byproducts, so I can avoid them fairly well.
