Battlefield 3 tournament held entirely in 3D will “help shape future stereoscopic 3D titles” for competitive gaming


Fan Expo Canada will play host to a Battlefield 3 tournament conducted in stereoscopic 3D, played on a version of the game specially modified for the occasion.

The game will run with Dynamic Digital Depth’s Tridef Ignition software, enhancing the game’s existing support for 3D play, alongside “over the top AMD graphics”.

More than anything, the event will allow event organisersiGO3D to feel out the potential of stereoscopics in competitive multiplayer gaming: “Among other things, this specially designed gaming tournament will tell us if people can effectively compete in stereoscopic 3D and what factors impact this if any,” said Neil Schneider, iGO3D project director.

“This invaluable information will help shape future stereoscopic 3D titles so game developers can deliver what customers really want.”

Torontonians! Get down on August 23rd to 26th and let us know precisely how indistinguishable from magic sufficiently advanced technology is. Players of all shapes, sizes and calibres are welcome to join in at iGO3D booth #1251.
