Battlefield: Bad Company Announced

EA and DICE have announced Battlefield: Bad Company, a new single-player game in the popular franchise, for PS3 and Xbox 360. Built from the ground-up for next-gen consoles using Digital Illusions’ Frostbite game engine, Bad Company will feature a “deep, cinematic single-player experience loaded with adventure and dark humor.” The game will have players stepping into the shoes of a squad of renegade soldiers behind enemy lines on a personal quest for “gold and revenge.”

As per the announcement, Bad Company will feature sandbox gameplay in an 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.”

Slated to ship sometime next year for the aforementioned consoles, Bad Company will also feature multiplayer options that will make use of the game’s massively destructible environments. No other details or screenshots were released, but EA did send out an image showing highly detailed soldiers’ faces.
