Battlefield: Bad Company
EA and DICE have announced Bad Company, a story-centered spinoff of their traditionally multiplayer-oriented Battlefield series. Players will control a squad of soldiers who exploit war to fulfill ambitions of gold and revenge. In addition to being a cinematic single-player experience "loaded with adventure and dark humor," multiplayer modes will take advantage of the game's "90 percent destructible" terrain. The game as a whole is intended to retain some of the "sandbox" feeling EA attributes to Battlefield. Some news from DICE is that the game will ship in 2007 for four platforms: PC, 360, PS3 and PSP.
