2009 will see the release of two new games in the Battlefield series: summer gets Battlefield 1943, while winter sees Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Battlefield 1943 will allow up to 24 players to fight in the Pacific theater using land, sea and air to capture Wake Island, Guadalcanal or Iwo Jima. Whether you play as the Japanese Imperial Army or the US Marines is up to you.
Lone wolves will have to wait until the end of the year to join Bad Company 2 though. That's when the 'B' company fight their way through snowy mountaintops, dense jungles and dusty villages. With a heavy arsenal of deadly weapons and a slew of vehicles to aid them, the crew set off on their mission and are ready to blow up, shoot down, blast through, wipe out and utterly destroy anything that gets in their way.
Each new chapter in the Battlefield saga will be available through PlayStation Store, Xbox Live or for the PC; but a sneak peek at the action can be gained here.
