DICE has recently announced that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 coming to the PS3, Xbox360 and PC.

Also announced by DICE is the upcoming title Battlefield 1943.

Quote:


After the announcement of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 during their quarterly financial conference call, Electronic Arts and DICE have come back with the news that the Battlefield series will be blowing up digital distribution channels even sooner. Battlefield 1943 is being developed with the same Frostbite engine that powers Bad Company 2, but it will be available to download on the PC, PlayStation Netowrk and Xbox Live Arcade this Summer.

The game will be a multiplayer shooter featuring three classic World War II locations: Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. The game will offer 24-player support online as players engage in "ruthless aerial dog fights and intense trench combat."

"Battlefield 1943 is a new take on a blast from the past classic coming to life with brand new technology that we’re eager to get into players hands," said Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer Battlefield Franchise, DICE.

Battlefield Bad Company 2

GamesCom Trailer... this trailer is freaking bad ass... I can't wait for it. Oh, it's slated for March 2nd 2010!

Sounds fun. The destructible environments of Bad Company in a slightly more casual fare. It'll be fun to fly planes in a BF game again.

I'm in, as long as there is a better lobby/matching system.

I'll just be happy to be back on a level playing field It's practically pointless to try going up against Zulu at this point in Bad Company. Looking forward to some dogfights.

Awwww... that's so sweet. On behalf of the other members of the Zulu Crew, I accept!

But yeah, it should be awesome!

I'm a huge BF fan, both on PC and console. I really like BF:BC but knew there were things it lacked from BF games. Seems these won't disappoint

Even though it didn't have airplanes, the console versions of BF2 are still the high point of the series to me. Bridge Too Far was just a brilliant map that I could play over and over and never get tired of. My buddies and I played the map exclusively, for the most part.

The glitches were a blast, too. You could do backflips and barrel rolls with the helicopter. If the tank was at an angle and the turret was pointed just the right way, when you exited the tank you'd get rocketed up about two times higher than the tallest building. We'd do that, deploy our parachutes, and snipe from the skies! The best part was once I sniped a helicopter pilot from above, then dropped down and stole his ride. Too much fun. Helicopters suck in Bad Company, it's such a letdown.

I'd almost buy a 360 just to get a hi-def version of that game.

freaking sweet

I do agree about the better matchmaking features. That needs to get fixed bigtime.

Holding the fort on old games that play the same as the new ones, minus the $400 price tag.

Amazing. That sound like a blast. I'm sure the guy in the heli didn't think so.

I assume you're talking about 1943?

Well, I'm excited. It's going to be a PSN/XBLive game anyways, so nothing too over the top. It's also going to be competing with Warhawk, which is the only game with this style of online arcade play so far.

1942 was so much fun back in the day. Updating it and offering it at a PSN price is great news.

Gametrailers has preview up, it looks fun.

Oooo. I loved BF2! I wonder in they'll have the commander position, UAV's and Arty strikes? If they could just copy the entire original BF2 over to PS3 then add destructible environments, I would be giddy as a school girl.

EDIT: Reread and see thats it's actually BF: BC2 ... Hmmm not as giddy.

EDIT II : It didn't dawn on me until just now that in BF2 they had WWII locations with Modern equipment.. Again.. Hmmm.

huh?

This is a PSN remake of BF1:1942 (now called 1943). It's a remake of the first game with the newest BF engine.

Not sure if that's what you're talking about, or if it's something about game mods/maps.

Didn't BF2 on PC have a Map Called 'Wake' that was Wake Island but there where Abrams Tanks, Blackhawk Helo's etc. ?

Ahh, then that makes sense. If it was anything like 42' Wake, then it's too small for a modern warfare take.

Only 3 maps though, right?

(The Horror!)

Anyways, looking forward to this. If it plays like the original it should be a blast.

Hm. So it's basically 3 new maps for Battlefield Bad Company, but with airplanes. For $15.

Sounds good to me. Can't wait to play this.
