Subject: Battlefield 2 Coming Soon

Although it hasn't been anounced stateside (or at least in english) Battlefield 2 is in the works for the PC platform, and should be on shelves spring of 2005. The press release is in swedish, but GameSpot was able to translate some of the statements. Here's some of it:

"Battlefield 2 builds on a new technical platform which will take us into the next generation of PC games," said DICE CEO Patrick Söderlund. Söderlund also said players of the game would notice a "marked improvement" in graphics and gameplay.

Battlefield 2 will be a different product from Battlefield: Modern Combat, the PlayStation 2 title announced last week. However, both games will feature the same three superpowers--China, the United States, and the newly formed Middle Eastern Coalition. Each power will have its own set of modern weapons and vehicles. The American arsenal will include the M4 assault rifle with the M203 grenade launcher, the Abrams tank, the Apache helicopter, and the Humvee.

This is very exciting news, and hopefully I will have a computer strong enough to run it by next spring! One last thought. I hope that the grenade launcher on the M4 doesn't turn out to be an overpowered weapon. You SoF:DH players know what I am talking about.
