Why you can't mod Battlefield 3

It would be too hard, says EA.

EA has explained why Battlefield 3 does not feature modding tools.

"As of now we are not going to make any modding tools, no," EA senior vice president Patrick Soderlund confirmed to German website GameStar.de.

Why? Because Battlefield 3 is so complex, creating a mod would be too hard.

"If you look at the Frostbite Engine and how complex it is, it's going to be very difficult for people to mod the game," Soderlund explained.

"Because of the nature of the set-up of levels, the destruction, it's quite tricky.

"So we think it's going to be too big of a challenge for people to make a mod."
