For whatever reason, Battlefield 1943 showed up on the EA store yesterday. And then, it was confirmed that this listing was a mistake (http://twitter.com/OfficialBF1943/status/23990478939)...

Something tells me, though, that this game is coming very soon. I''m ready for some Frostbite/Destruction 2.0 WWII chaos. :D


If anyone obtains any more info (pics, prices, distribution channels) on this upcoming game, please post it here.

At this point I think it's only like four maps, and will sell for $10-$15 at first.

What is the difference from Battlefield series and Bad Company series?

What is the difference from Battlefield series and Bad Company series?

Bad Company has more focus on making sure it has an engaging single-player/story element, and MP generally has slightly smaller maps than the rest of the Battlefield series. Obviously Bad Company games are more console-friendly.

Wow, the Battlefield maps are even larger for MP? That's awesome. I hope this comes out then...

Also: One screenshot shows the tank and an airplane... Can you fly a plane in MP?

From the EA store site:

Features

* By Land, Sea, & Air! – Unleash wide destruction with Bombing Raids, Tanks, or Fighter Planes launched from Aircraft Carriers and enjoy one of the best vehicle experiences in any multiplayer game to-date!
* Varied Locations – Whether you choose Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima or the classic Wake Island, you’ll experience the best balance of infantry combat complemented by land, sea and air vehicles.
* Frostbite-Enabled Destruction – Watch as the beautiful Pacific islands quickly turn into scarred battlefields as destruction rains upon you and your fellow soldiers as you fight to win the battle!
* Through The Gun Experience – Use classic and iconic WWII infantry weapons with excellent feel to defeat your foes. Hit’em hard from afar through your sniper scope or use explosives or melee weapons like bayonets to make it really up close and personal.

Wow. If it's out on PC and has the same leveling style as BFBC2, I'm getting it.

BFBC2 is the best game for me in a LONG TIME. I am constantly thinking about playing it, and it doesn't get boring. :thumbsup:

Actually since Battlefield 1943 was supposed to be released the summer of 2009 for PC, it was originally built and released on Frostbite 1.0 for consoles without Destruction 2.0. It was used as the testing bed for the first Frostbite engine. Since its been delayed for so long now on PC I have no idea what engine they will finish it on. Maybe they will use it as a testing bed for Frostbite 2.0 for PC??? Heres hoping but unlikely.

And Bearclaw, previous Battlefield games have been much larger in scale and include not only helicopter fighting, but planes, jets, aircraft carriers etc. Heres a good idea of the scale!

Repi is one of the lead architects on the Frostbite engine at DICE:

twitter.com/Just_do_it_ffs (http://twitter.com/Just_do_it_ffs/status/23998700985): "@repi Will BF1943PC run on FB1.5? Or is the reason for the long delay you want it to run under FB2.0 instead?:)"
twitter.com/repi (http://twitter.com/repi/status/23999632549): "@Just_do_it_ffs No it is FB1.5"

Frostbite 1.0 was used in Bad Company 1. I believe BF1943 was built to test FB1.5

yea from official site, its between the bad company 1 and 2 engines

Q. What gaming Engine is it using?
A. Frostbite engine. Similar to the one used in Bad Company.

Q. What are we going to see in regards to what frostbite 2.0 can do in Battlefield 1943? Q. Will it still have destruction of buildings and environments (like battlefield bad company)?
A. Yes! I'd call it Frostbite 1.5 since we started before BFBC2 did, you'll get buildings destroyed to the foundation, but not like BFBC2 awesome Destruction 2.0! We have tried to make it better and with less of issues from BFBC1.

Battlefield 1942 was the best in the series.


Meth, there are only a handful of themes in the gaming industry. Space aliens is a theme that hasn't even been taken advantage of yet......

Have you never played the real battlefield games? AS good as bfbc2 is the REAL BF games are much better. The maps are 2 times the size.
