EA has officially unveiled Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 1943 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

The latter will be out this summer as a downloadable PSN, XBLA and PC title. Players will be whisked back to World War II and do battle in tropical locales Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima, using period vehicles and weaponry to wreak havoc.

DICE made a name for itself with Battlefield 1942 many moons ago, and is relishing the chance to revamp the experience using brand new tech. We're told this will be playable at the New York Comic-Con this weekend.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be out this winter and build on the destructive, humorous and story-driven original that welcomed top-notch scores. Thick jungles, snowy mountains and dusty deserts will provide the background this time, with piles of weapons at hand to reduce everything to rubble. The celebrated multiplayer will return, too.
