About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

'Battlefield: Modern Combat' (PS2/Xbox) - Screens

by Judy on Jan. 22, 2005 @ 12:53 p.m. PST

The first-ever Battlefield console installment will drop players into the heat of battle on the high tech frontlines, entering a new modern era of combat with more firepower and new expansive environments. Armed with the latest modern weaponry, players can take control of over 30 vehicles, including tanks, helicopters and fast attack vehicles, to engage in major conflicts in some of the largest online battles.

Developed by Sweden-based Digital Illusions, Battlefield: Modern Combat features large and detailed environments, from city streets to remote forests, in some of the globe's most notorious hot spots, allowing players to engage in multiplayer battles that could be ripped straight from tomorrow's headlines. Battlefield: Modern Combat also includes over 70 state-of-the-art modern weapons and advanced weapon systems, including heat-seeking missiles and laser designated bombs. Additionally, with in-game success, players increase their rank and garner promotions in a persistent online world.

In addition to the single-player mode, new maps and additional features will be added to the game during the extended development period. The decision to add the single-player mode was made in response to consumer feedback.

Featuring both single-player and multi-player modes mean that Battlefield: Modern Combat can be enjoyed by solo players or within an online multiplayer environment that supports up to 24 players. To play online, PlayStation 2 console owners will require a broadband connection, memory card and network adaptor for the PlayStation 2, while Xbox owners will require a subscription to Xbox Live. Voiceover communication is also supported via USB headset. Players will choose to fight for one of three military superpowers: the United States, the Chinese, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition.

Battlefield: Modern Combat will ship in fall 2005 and will be published and distributed by EA under the EA GAMES brand.
