EA: New Battlefield will "change the way you play shooters"

50°
367w ago - Battlefield: Bad Company will change the way we play games, according to EA. GamePro speaks with Karl-Magnus Troedsson, the senior producer for Battlefield: Bad Company, due out this March.

How similar is Bad Company to a typical Battlefield title? If I'm a Battlefield veteran, what would make me want to play Bad Company?

Experienced Battlefield fans will feel very much at home with Bad Company. The core mechanics, the sandbox game play experience that's the pedigree of all Battlefield games, is present in the new online mode as well as the singleplayer campaign. Think huge environments with tons of weapons, vehicles and gadgets and then combine this with your own imagination to how to solve the problems at hand. Seasoned Battlefield players can also stay tuned for a Veteran program.

I understand DICE recently added a single-player portion to Bad Company. How does this work differently than multiplayer?

The singleplayer campaign in the Battlefield: Bad Company(tm) has a lot of common things with playing online. The difference is that the player is grouped together with a squad of three other soldiers which go on a story driven adventure within the war. The game style is otherwise very similar to multiplayer i.e. anything you find on the battlefield can be used and no objective...
 

Sony Announces Early 2008 Line-Up

367w ago - Make no mistakes about it, Sony is not joking around when it comes down to first party releases. Having come off a solid holiday line up, including blockbusters like Uncharted, Warhawk, and Ratchet and Clank, SCEA has wasted no time in announcing their early 2008 offerings.

The great news here is that they've made MLB 08: The Show official, as you may have read in Ben's piece. This is great news because this year's MLB 07 was a fantastic game, but MLB 08 looks to improve in virtually every facet, with a visual overhaul to boot. Moreover, we're finally getting a WipeOut HD release date: early next year it is, which usually indicates a period between January and February.

Of course, for those pining for the smell of burnt rubber, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue will arrive within the first quarter of 2008 (we predict March). To top things off, the PSP's God of War: Chains of Olympus will also hit in March, so keep an eye out for that.

Below you'll find Sony's current line-up, much of which, you should notice will arrive before the Spring:

PS3/PSN
MLB: The Show 08 (PS3) - Spring 08
Hot Shots Golf 5 (PS3) - March 08
Wipeout HD (PSN) - Early 08
Rat Race (PSN) - Winter 07/08
echochrome (PSN) - Q1 2008
Grant Turismo 5: Prologue (PS3/PSN) - Q1 2008

It's not much, but an asterisked notation for "Vibration Function" says that the DualShock3 will be "Available for purchase in early 2008."

Goodish news for those of you having trouble acquiring the rumbler from Japanese importers.
