Battlefield: Bad Company

From Wikipedia

Battlefield: Bad Company (abbreviated BFBC) is a first-person shooter under development by Digital Illusions CE. Currently planned for the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and PSP[2], Bad Company will be the first Battlefield game to be developed for next-gen consoles. An announcement for a PC version has been confirmed. The exact release date is currently unknown, but it is expected to be released sometime in 2007.[1]

Features

Destructible Environments


Use your weapons to create damage to the environment, and make your own places to hide.



One of the new features exclusive to Bad Company will be the addition of 95% destructible environments. Most of the terrain will be able to be destroyed, enabling players to create strategies with this new opportunity. For example, snipers might be able to blow away a corner of a building so that they could use that section as a place to fire from. This does not mean that they are invincible, however. Vehicles such as tanks will have the firepower to destroy many of these buildings, encouraging the player to retreat and find another strategic point.[citation needed]

Squads

The amount of soldier classes will be lowered, as some of the character classes will now be combined, an approach also used in Battlefield 2142. This will also create "new loadouts of weapons and equipment."[2]

Weapons

Available weapons are currently unknown, but they will likely contain modern favorites as well as some new concepts based on future weaponry, such as the XM8 carbine that is shown in a few of the screenshots. [3]
Ironsight
Ironsight is a new aiming mode to be featured in the game. Aiming in Bad Company will now cause your firing direction to move in random directions to take away repetitive fire, just as it would work in real life. Using Ironsight will help to improve a player's aim, causing the player to focus on his target and temporarily blur out surrounding objects.

Single player

Well-known for its popular multiplayer support, DICE will take on a different strategy for this game and focus additionally on the single-player component, while still maintaining the multiplayer features expected from a Battlefield game.

Story

While not much is revealed at the moment, the story which takes place "just a few years into the future,"[3] involves a group of four AWOL soldiers fighting for money as well as payback. Their adventures will take place in locations such as Eastern Europe and other locations around the world. Whether or not the plot will involve the world's superpower armies is yet to be seen.

Multiplayer

Multiplayer mode will support up to 24 players, the same amount as Battlefield 2: Modern Combat.
Revealed screenshots hint that battles will take place in environments similar to Battlefield 2. Example locations will include towns and tropical areas. Recent screenshot confirms the return of the US HMMWV, tanks, and helicopters.

To me it seems that the only new thing from battlefield 2 is a destructable environment. Not that a destructable environment is a bad thing.

as long as all the glitches and hacks from multiplayer in BF2:MC are fixed ill buy it. ive been killed by guys in walls and been shot through walls but the most frustrating of all is firing a tank shell at someone, hitting them and they dont die.
