DICE hopes to start an open beta for Battlefield 2 patch 1.5 before Santa stuffs himself down chimneys.
"The beta would be for everyone that wants to install it, the more people that do the better feedback we get and we don't have an update 1.30 again," said a spokesperson for the developer on the official forum (spotted by Blue's News).
"The plan is to get it out before Christmas yes."
DICE exec Ben Cousins has confirmed that the team is currently working on no less than five titles in its Battlefield franchise, according to GamesIndustry.biz.
Time for a diversion until we get to the review? Oh, I think so. Press page down a couple of times if you want to skip the history lesson. Everyone else: leave your pencil alone and don't take notes. I won't be asking questions later.
Battlefield 2: Special Forces is a little different while remaining exactly the same. Just as contented lovers silently transform into hate-filled animals, their bristling manner toward each other somehow eluding the cursory detection skills of an outsider, Battlefield's priorities have started to shift and change. Though unlike the doomed relationship, not necessarily in a bad way.
(For anyone other than marriage councillors anyway.)
Electronic Arts has announced that new expansion pack Battlefield 2: Special Forces is now available to buy and download via the EA website.
