Battlefield 4 won't use motion controls; DICE veep calls them a 'gimmick'

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

According to DICE executive VP Patrick Bach, Battlefield 4 isn't going to include motion control support. 

"We are not interested in things that don't make the game better," Bach explained, speaking to Edge Online. "There are a lot of gimmicks - people throwing money at us - 'can you implement support for this quirky control thing?' No, it doesn't make the game better." 

Battlefield 4 won't use motion controls; DICE exec calls it a "gimmick"

That's not to say DICE isn't open to using new, unique technologies in their titles. Quite the opposite is true, Bach explained. The problem with motion control is that no one has yet figured out how to do it right: 

"We're extremely open to innovation," he continued, "but it it's a gimmick, there's no point unless it adds value to the player. Touch screens used to be a gimmick, because no one could get it to work until iPhone came out and used it right. It adds to the experience, and now everyone is doing it. To us it's the same with motion control and perceptual gaming in general; if it adds, great. If it's a gimmick, ignore it."
