Default Battlefield 1943: Pacific Officially Announced

Soldiers, it's time to do your part in the action packed battles of the World War II Pacific campaign! Pick your path - be it as a rifleman crawling the trenches, a steel fisted tank commander, or ace fighter pilot dog fighting to protect the skies. Play as a lone wolf or with your friends, coordinating to turn the tide of battle. Whatever you choose, you get to enjoy the thrill of a fully featured online shooter with the unique Battlefield sandbox experience.

Battlefield 1943 will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and on PC for download. This gives players access to the famous action packed Battlefield gameplay quicker and easier than it's ever been. Play as the US Marines or the Imperial Japanese Navy on match-made servers for optimal challenge, as you gain ranks and awards. Battlefield 1943 is your own version of one of the most famous campaigns in the history of the world!

By Land, Sea & Air!
Unleash wide destruction with Bombing Raids, Tanks, or Fighter Planes launched from Aircraft Carriers and enjoy one of the best experiences in any multiplayer game to-date!

Varied Locations & Up to 24 Players
Play with 24 players online in three beautiful and destructible locations from the Pacific theatre. Whether you choose Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima or the classic Wake Island, you'll experience the best balance of infantry combat complemented by land, sea and air vehicles.

Frostbite-Enabled Destruction
Watch the beautiful Pacific Islands quickly turn into scarred battlefields as destruction rains upon you and your fellow soldiers as you fight to win the battle!

Through the Gun Experience
Use classic and iconic World War II infantry weapons with excellent feel to defeat your foes. Hit'em hard from afar through your sniper scope or use explosives or melee weapons like bayonets to make it really up close and personal.

MEDIC!

Bayonets this time around too I see.

But its EA and DICE it will be buggy till it gets a few patches I bet, wouldnt be a BF game if it wasnt.

What I dont like is a 24 player cap, lame IMO and only 3 maps? WTF is that? They got to be working on more.
Just hope they don't make more maps only for expansion packs, I freaking hate that.

I tried several of the battlefield series and every one had sloppy, laggy netcode that pissed me off to no end.

May I am getting this. About time the did some work on WW2 because the dog fights are incredible. Sadly they capped this and Battlefield Bad Company 2(also on PC) at 24 players. So no more 64 player fun :(. Ah well I am sure there will be some mods to add more maps. Anyways this is only a small release for people to get ready for BF:BC2.

I think I have rewritten this post like 5 times to make it sound diplomatic...

To me this smacks of unoriginality to the max. The Call of Duty series goes to the Pacific Theater in World at War and where does the Battlefield franchise go? You got it!! What a joke.

Might have to get me a new joy stick. Haven't had one for a long time. Any suggestions?

Agreed. They need to think of something NEW like they did with 2142...now THAT was a great idea.
