The PC version of Battlefield 3 will have Camaros - vintage Chevrolet sports cars used as special forces cars in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat - at launch, DICE has revealed.

"After the massive feedback from everyone in the community, we are putting in the Camaros as well, on PC," DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson told Gaming Lives.

"It's going to come in very hot, but it is in the plan to get that done for day one."

PC users will also benefit from a deeper Battlelog system than on console. Battlelog tracks your statistical progress in Battlefield 3 and shares it as you play.

"We want console gamers to preferably play the game on your consoles with that [Battlelog on PC] next to you," said Troedsson. "You can keep your real-time stats coming up on your webpage."

"However, there will of course be a version of Battlelog inside the console. The feature that we call the Battlefeed," he explaied, stating that this will track and share things like ranking up and unlocking things.

"That will be in there with the whole defence management system."

"But if you really want to dig deep into the features that are in Battlelog," he added, "then you have to go to the web."

Battlefield 3 is one of the main attractions at German games show Gamescom 2011 this week. Eurogamer has nominated it as one of the Games of the Show.

Hahahaha. Really? It's the commo-rose they are talking about.

(To those who don't understand: DICE confirmed a multiplayer feature called "commo rose" for BF3, Eurogamer thought they confirmed "camaros" - camaro cars)

I hope DICE will put in a Camaro in the game now.

I don't care how many hoops they'll have to go through to get the license, they have to do it.

Yeah, it actually would be great if the civilian cars were back. Too bad you can't do this in Battlefield 3.
    

     
I would take a Camaro over the Commo rose any day.

How the hell did they not react to this? Did they seriously think the BF community ached for Camaros?

EG is one if the best Brit gaming sites out there.  Plus they can laugh at themselves when they make such a classic fuck up such as this.

Eurogamer has been going down in quality a lot recently, most of it down to this idiot, Robert Purchase.

Forget that, how did they read "commo rose," and think "Well, that doesn't make any sense - it must just be Swedish people being Swedish.  Obviously, obviously, they mean Camaros.  Clearly.  Silly Swedish people."
