Well-known publisher Electronic Arts (EA) and developer D.I.C.E, confirmed it.
It tasted Battlefield of Xbox360 along with Bad Company 2’s online thrills and also with beta for PC players too.
In fact, Xbox 360 version able to host around 24 players and PC gamers can 32 players. This is the main differ of two platform.
According to the statement of Patrick Bachine, senior producer of Bad Company 2’s ““After the success of the PS3 beta, we’re excited to provide gamers – especially our long-supporting, rabidly passionate PC fans – with another opportunity to get into the game before release,”
In addition he told that our fans have been a huge part of the franchise’s success and we can’t wait for everyone to experience the amazing gameplay and unforgettable Battlefield moments in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
After declaring its assurance to dedicated servers with Bad Company 2 on PC (a lot to the delight of fans), developer DICE has took a step back. We came to know that the servers will still be committed for extra or fewer optimal online play, hosts will have to lease the servers all through one of their certified hosts, that means it won’t be feasible to make your individual. Hosts have previously been chosen for “all main areas of the world.”
Earlier anybody gets up in arms, creator Gordon Van Dyke commented on this as “save the game’s honesty on PC.” We are captivating this as a around way of saying it’s their meanings by which to harm piracy numbers, which is the best method, of course. Its ill-fated server attributes have to be cooperated because of pirates, but be sure to put the fault where it fits. And on the vivid part, this probable means no partial installs or something of that nature.
Van Dyke puts in, the corporation made no income from giving the servers on lease, so there’s no plan conjecture to talk about.
Combat zone: Bad Company 2 will also not maintain the console commands, a characteristic various PC gamers understand, but there is however a lengthy list of PC limited attributes to look onward to.
The PC beta created January 28, administered just in a month. The complete game will start on March 5 on everything.
We know that the first Battlefield Bad Company was not available on the PC. This time Electronic Arts and DICE have decided to give something back to the community. Hence, the developer reacted sharply when Infinity Ward, the major competitor, and its Modern Warfare 2, had announced all the cheap shots it took at the PC platform.
After the developer of Modern Warfare 2 announced that its game will support multiplayer matches and it could be shopped down to a maximum of 18 total players, DICE also have started this as a perfect publicity stunt.
DICE have realized its mistake with the first version of BC and has stepped forth making sure that the same mistake will not be repeated in the upcoming game.
At present the game is running in beta form, but only for the PlayStation 3. The developer now decides to roll out on the PC by next year.
According to DICE, “The BFBC2 PS3 Beta has been a huge success thanks to the massive participation (300,000+ people) and invaluable feedback.”
It also said, “The team is, and has been, very busy reviewing tons [of] telemetry data, feedback from the community, and implementing it into the final game for an amazing launch this March 2010.”
A game that has broken servers. A game that has spectacular sales records with its popularity is too odd that PC, XBLA and PSN effort Battlefield 1943 hasn’t been exploited with the DLC.
Then what is the deal till far?
Okay, it seems that the developer DICE is in fact very busy working on Battlefield 3 and also Bad Company 2 to spend time making new maps.
“We don’t have any immediate plans right now, but it’s not ruled out,” producer (and potential superstar DJ with that name) Gordon Van Dyke told Joystiq of DICE’s lack of DLC plans.
He also said that there is a lot of pressure on the entire team for Battlefield 3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and they don’t want to stretch things too thin and make something that is not matching the quality standard.
He further added that Battlefield 1942 is a huge game with a lot that they can pull from. DICE only wants to make it sure that they keep their options open and at the same time also to make it sure that the decision they land on is what is best for everyone.
He also mentioned that the company does not want to be of that kind which pushes out DLC just for DLC’s sake.
DICE, the developer of ‘Battlefield,’ that focused on building the foundation for first-person shooter Battlefield: Bad Company last year are now beefing up the destructive elements for the sequel, which is supposed to be released on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next year.
The demo at the E3 for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 by DICE highlighted the multiplayer mode and a match type that is called Rush. Fans and gamers familiar with the franchise is going to remember the Gold Rush mode from the first game. In this the players either attack or defend stashes of gold.
The main difference between them is that the matches are more objective-based and progressive in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. In the demo at the E3 it showed that there were two teams that were fighting to take over a military base hidden among snowy mountaintops. As gamers attacked or defended a position then the action use to move incrementally forward through the environment.
