EA: New Battlefield will "change the way you play shooters"

Battlefield: Bad Company will change the way we play games, according to EA. GamePro speaks with Kerl-Magnus Troedsson, the senior producer for February's Battlefield: Bad Company.

GamePro: Bad Company uses destructible environments, but how do they affect strategy and gameplay?

Kerl-Magnus Troedsson: I've said this before and some people are skeptical but the tactical destruction in Battlefield: Bad Company will change how you play shooters. It fundamentally changes how the second to second action between players plays out. E.g. there is no more cover. An enemy shooting at you in a window and then taking cover behind the wall when reloading can be taken out by tearing down the whole wall. All you need is the right tool for the job. Tanks can drive through forests and hence stay off mine littered roads. Stay tuned for the demo to get some hands on experience to see what I mean.

I hope they don't ruin it like they did in Battlefield 2142

i'm not sure what you mean by that as BF2142 was an exeptional game Titan mode is fantastic, i have had many an happy hour dominating the skies in my Gunship

i gave up pc gaming a few months ago but loved BF2142, however i didn't like BF2 not sure why i just didn't get along with it, besides i was to busy playing Cod2 with my Rifle only clan

Change how we play? You mean you are letting console only gamers use a keyboard and mouse?

BF2142 was more like a mod then a new game. While It was good it was disappointing.

Don't get me wrong i love battlefield but Doesn't every shooter claim this? I hope its true though battlefield is one of my favorite games

metallbizkit3870d ago

Heh, I was thinking the same thing. Always something like "revolutionary gameplay" or "sets a new bar for games."

rushbd3870d ago

I hope that dont mess up the PS3 version.

Very opmistic thing to hope with EA.

but everything is destructible. that should play interesting

ygxbrayzie3870d ago

I'm not a fan of fps in fact i dislike them but COD 4
change my mind it was awesome i was into it...i hope this one will do the same :)

devilhunterx3870d ago

in every match, you destroy every single building in the first 2 minutes, and then play on a flat land...brilliant

fresco3870d ago

i was thinking the same.. it will probably take a ton of firepower to take down a whole structure or they'll just limit the type of amo/weapons that can destroy bldgs.
