As promised, Electronic Arts has officially unveiled Digital Illusions' latest title for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Called Battlefield: Bad Company, it promises to bring a single-player focus to the series most renowned for its online game, and it's due out in 2007.
In a story reminiscent of 1999's Three Kings movie, players are dropped behind enemy lines with a squad of renegade soldiers on a personal quest for gold and revenge.
EA promises a "deep, cinematic" single-player game full of dark humour, as well as almost completely destructible environments thanks to DICE's Frostbite game engine.
"The heart of DICE's multiplayer games is the frenetic, unpredictable nature of the sandbox experience, where anything could happen at any moment, and that's what we're bringing to the core of Battlefield: Bad Company's single-player campaign," DICE producer Karl Magnus Troedsson.
"In a world that's 90 percent destructible, the gameplay possibilities are infinite - the battlefield is always changing, forcing players, team-mates, and enemies to react accordingly. Gamers will have total freedom to adapt to and tackle challenges in creative Battlefield-style ways."
EA's also promising a solid multiplayer component, as you'd expect.
