According to a tweet by Ben Cousins, general manager of EA’s Easy studio, a new Battlefield game will be announced this Friday. “Flying to London later today to show a new, unannounced #Battlefield game to the press. News goes public on Friday. (NOT #BF3)” He also noted that , “Just to confirm – I am NOT going to London to announce any game called ‘Battlefield Assault’. That is just a URL EA picked up.” as well as stating that this will be a completely new title.
Stay tuned as we’ll keep you posted as soon as we get the news!
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 geeks are going to be in for a treat today and tomorrow as DICE release their eagerly awaited Onslaught Mode. The new mode is due to hit the US today (22nd June) with Europe getting a taste of the action tomorrow (23rd June).
With the price of the mode expected to be around $9.99 (US) and 8.99 Euros, I’m sure fans of the franchise will pull out their wallet blindfolded to pay for the expansion pack. The new mode is to be a 4-player co-op mode facing waves of computer controlled enemies. If you think you’re just going to spawn, run around like a lunatic and shoot everything that moves – think again!
The maps which will feature this mode are Valpariso, Atacama Desert, Isla Innocentes and Nelson Bay. This feature is sure to keep you busy for quite some time until the much talked about Vietnam pack hits the BC2 store this Winter.
Soldiers – at ease!
EA had wanted to charge for some “extra” content in Battlefield: Bad Company that was actually included on the disc. Unless you paid extra for the premium version of the game, you’d have to pay extra for some additional weapons (that were already included on disc – you just couldn’t use them).
Nobody liked that idea! Some people went so far as to propose a boycott of the game. (Though I’m of the mind that you can just vote with your spending dollars by just not buying the game.)
Now EA has changed their minds and said that gamers wouldn’t have to pay for the extra guns after all, players just have to level up to the highest level in the game.
Personally, I am getting tired of developers nickel and diming us all the time, so I’m glad to see EA change their mind and do the right thing. On the other hand, I wonder if EA had left things as they were, if it would have impacted sales any.
