Default ~ Battlefield 1943 for PC ~







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.



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?

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?

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.

It was the same for me until I hit about 150 hrs.
