DICE ANNOUNCES BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY 2
Before Rejoining the 'B' Company, Players Go Back to WWII in Battlefield 1943
Guildford, UK â€“ February 5, 2009 â€“ DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc studio (NASDAQ: ERTS), today announced the development of Battlefield: Bad Company 2â„¢, the sequel to last yearâ€™s blockbuster title. In this installment, the Bad Company crew again find themselves in the heart of the action, where they must use every weapon and vehicle at their disposal to survive. The action unfolds with unprecedented intensity, introducing a level of fervor to vehicular warfare never before experienced in a modern warfare action game. To get ready for the assault this winter, players can prepare for action in Battlefield 1943â„¢, an all-new multiplayer game available this summer via PlayStationÂ®Store, Xbox LIVEâ„¢ Marketplace and on the PC.
In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the â€˜Bâ€™ company fight their way through snowy mountaintops, dense jungles and dusty villages. With a heavy arsenal of deadly weapons and a slew of vehicles to aid them, the crew set off on their mission and they are ready to blow up, shoot down, blast through, wipe out and utterly destroy anything that gets in their way. Total destruction is the name of the game, delivered as only the DICE next generation Frostbiteâ„¢ engine can. Either online or offline, enemies will soon learn there is nowhere to hide. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be available for the Xbox 360Â® videogame and entertainment system, the PLAYSTATIONÂ®3 computer entertainment system and the PC.
Using the same Frostbiteâ„¢ engine, Battlefield 1943 takes players back to WWII. The game offers endless hours of 24 player multiplayer action over three classic and tropic locations; Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. Delivering the award-winning through-the-gun and vehicle warfare online experience DICE is best recognized for, Battlefield 1943 will have players battling in ruthless aerial dog fights and intense trench combat. Players can see the game in action at New York Comic Con (Booth #1441) from February 6th-8th.
â€œBad Company 2 takes everything that players liked in the original and ups the ante â€“ more vehicles, more destruction and more team play,â€ said Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer Battlefield Franchise, DICE. â€œBattlefield 1943 is a new take on a blast from the past classic coming to life with brand new technology that weâ€™re eager to get into players hands.â€
I personally cannot wait for either game to be release and will be waiting impatiently until they do. :thumbsup:
