Battlefield 1943 Trailer

Also, Bad Company 2 is on the works. It's coming for the PC too!!

Quote

STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ:ERTS), today announced Battlefield: Bad Company 2™, the sequel to last year’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 1943™, an all-new multiplayer game available this summer via PlayStation®Store, Xbox LIVE™ Marketplace and on the PC.

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the ‘B’ 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 Frostbite™ 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 360® videogame and entertainment system, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and the PC.

Using the same Frostbite™ 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.

“Bad Company 2 takes everything that players liked in the original and ups the ante – more vehicles, more destruction and more team play,” said Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer Battlefield Franchise, DICE. “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.”

To sign-up for the Battlefield Heroes™ beta, players can visit www.battlefield-heroes.com. For more information on DICE, please visit www.dice.se or www.ea.com. For more information on the Battlefield franchise please visit: www.battlefield.com.


I'm very excited. I love Battlefield games!

Ah was just about to create a thread myself. Seems you 1-upped me when it comes to attention whoring.

Anyway, I'm interested in 1943. Because from what I could tell that trailer showcased Wake Island and Wake Island was all I ever played when I used to be into BF1942. All I ever played.

It is indeed Wake Island.

I'm really excited for this one, i absolutely love BF games and 1943 should be great. (Even if i was hoping for a modern setting again)

On Bad company 2, its nice to see this one come to PC i'll probably pick it up too.

EDIT: Actually I just saw 1943 is only 24 players? I hope thats consoles and that PC is 64 like normal.

i doubt a game that hinges on MP like battlefield 1942 would skip out on the chance of having 64 player battles.

The game could be smaller scale (yeah I kinda doubt that) which would make it an obvious call. On the otherhand I sort of liked the smaller servers in BF2. Sometimes anyway. Made it less nade spam and more tactics. We'll see though.

I don't mind if it is just 24 players, means that it will not lag my PC as much.

I agree, depending on map size, bf games should be around 24-32 max players. Anything more and you have disorder

64 players on Gulf of Oman was great, Karkand was a bit too hectic. And what about the huge maps like Daqing Oilfields? You'd need 64 for that, hopefully they clarify on it though, i want my huge games.
