Electronic Arts has announced ‘Battlefield: Bad Company,’ the latest installment in the long-running Battlefield series of games, is currently in development at Digital Illusions for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
EA describes the game as follows: “Built from the ground-up for next-generation consoles using Digital Illusions’ bleeding-edge Frostbite(TM) game engine, Battlefield: Bad Company drops gamers behind enemy lines with a squad of renegade soldiers who risk it all on a personal quest for gold and revenge. Featuring a deep, cinematic single-player experience loaded with adventure and dark humor, the game delivers the series’ trademark sandbox gameplay in a universe where nearly everything is destructible.”
“The heart of DICE’s multiplayer games is the frenetic, unpredictable nature of the sandbox experience, where anything could happen at any moment, and that’s what we’re bringing to the core of Battlefield: Bad Company’s single-player campaign, said Karl Magnus Troedsson, senior producer at DICE. “In a world that’s 90 percent destructible, the gameplay possibilities are infinite — the battlefield is always changing, forcing players, teammates, and enemies to react accordingly. Gamers will have total freedom to adapt to and tackle challenges in creative Battlefield-style ways.”
Indulgence in the totally destructible environments of ‘Battlefield: Bad Company’ will commence sometime in 2007.
