EA Dice announced today that fans of the Battlefield series will be pleased to know that Battlefield: Bad Company is shipping to retail outlets on June 23. Gamers worldwide will get their chance to join the ranks of the B company on exciting, and sometimes irreverent missions that take place in cities, deserts and mountain terrain in order to capture the spoils of war. Players can experience the tactical, destructive power in a deep single player campaign, or go online for some intense multiplayer action.
For a limited time only, gamers will be able to purchase the Gold Edition of Battlefield: Bad Company. The Gold Edition pack features exclusive content with behind-the-scenes action and strategy videos, giving Battlefield: Bad Company players tricks and tips on how to own the battlefield. The Gold Edition also gives gamers early access to five unique weapons that players can take into battle. These weapons can also be unlocked after the launch of the game by ranking up to the highest level in multiplayer mode.
“Players can forget about using walls as cover as we’ve fundamentally changed the way to play shooters offline and online through the use of tactical destruction,” says Karl-Magnus Troedsson, Senior Producer for Battlefield: Bad Company. “Players will get the chance to reap the spoils of war this summer as they annihilate the enemy and search for gold in the dark, character-driven, single player storyline while returning Battlefield fans will love the intense and vehicle-heavy multiplayer.”
We aren't sure if the announced date is the same for European gamers, but hopefully we'll know more about that soon.

This game looks really good. Some videos remind me of CoD4 with destrucble environments.
By the way, the PSU.com site takes a lot of time to load in my PC and PS3. Does this happen to you too?

This is looking pretty good, probably going to get it, I thought we were going to have to wait longer than this as well.
@Neameto: I am getting that as well, sometimes it takes like 10secs to load, but maybe you're talking about a longer time than that.

i've been reading some bad views from the beta testers, they say that the desctructible environments aren't as good as they hoped to be, so i'll wait and see 'sides i have MGS4 to keep me company

yea the beta for mgs4 will b awesome this thursday but this game wont b as i expect from the rest of the Batttlefield games 2142 was a let down to me
- 10:00am EDT - April 15th, 2008
w00t can't wait for this, haze, lbp and MGS4
@neamoto if you mean the frontpage takes 10 seconds max and news pages around 5 max then yes its the same for me

i do have the beta here in europe and i can say this game is ok. the destruction is pretty weakly executed for next-gen hardware (i think neways) but it just manages to work when your in the heat of battle. gameplay itself is a mixed bag but can be quite addictive. i dont think i'd pay full price for this tho.

oh no it seems I'll be getting civilisation revolution instead of battlefield bad company why the heell is it June
- 11:46am EDT - April 15th, 2008
Looks good but I've read diffrent things about it I'll see how it rates before I buy.
- 1:10pm EDT - April 15th, 2008
w00t!!! But im going to get regulr version because I want more gameplay time :p
- 1:25pm EDT - April 15th, 2008
The game looks really crazy but i'll wait until the game gets its rating
- 4:22pm EDT - April 15th, 2008
Yea, this game is INTRODUCING a new technology, so it's not gonna be groundbreaking, but still, this game's gonna own :P

Metal Gear will dominate June, the only people that will care about this game is Xbox players and non-metal gear fans.

Slant Six (SOCOM: Confrontation) decided against destructible environments and, though I've never owned a SOCOM game, the way they explained it seems more intelligent to me.

I'll be too busy playing mgs4 to get this one in june, i'll just pick it up after! but I think it will be worth it but i'm not sure that it will be as addictive as cod4
- 8:47am EDT - April 16th, 2008
Seriously this game is gonna be terrible. Your looking at another EA flop right here.

@ NitroMikeo God... Why does people complain when it's EA whp PUBLISHES games!? I can see they can't develop, but seriously.. People also whined when chances were that EA would publish GTAIV. What's up with that? They aren't going to change the game!
This is awesome news!! (Except for the EU thingy... :( ) Now I just need EU release for Rock Band, and I'm almost settled untill Christmas :D
