"With Battlefield: Bad Company 2 we're looking to raise the bar
across all aspects of our multiplayer experience, setting a new
standard for online play," says Patrick Bach, Senior Producer on
Battlefield: Bad Company 2. "From the graphics to the vehicles, weapons
and destruction, we are delivering the best online multiplayer game
next year, and we want gamers to experience it themselves by playing
the beta and demo."
The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer beta will feature the
Arica Harbour map, where up to 24 players can compete in one of the
game's four intense multiplayer modes called Rush. This new map
displays a superb balance of vehicle and infantry combat, as the
American assault unit attacks the Russian army base with full force,
advancing further through a beautiful desert town and towards the
industrial area in a desperate attempt to overtake the Arica Harbour.
Heavy vehicle warfare on the first bases gradually turns into an
intense infantry fight as the level progresses, showcasing this
best-in-class online war experience.
In December 2009, DICE will invite players to participate in a PC
open beta. Then, early next year, all players worldwide will get to
experience this premier shooter when DICE releases a Battlefield: Bad
Company 2 multiplayer DEMO on the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment
system, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be in stores on March 2, 2010 in North
America and March 5, 2010 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and
the PC. The Limited Edition is available now for pre-order at
participating retailers worldwide (while supplies last).
