GameSpot: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Multiplayer Hands-On

GameSpot writes: "Based on our initial look, there's a lot to like about where the multiplayer is headed with this collection of clever tweaks and enhancements. EA and DICE still have some tricks up their sleeves in the form of a new multiplayer mode and what's said to be vastly expanded persistence and stat-tracking, so a few more drastic upgrades could still be around the corner. Until we get a look at that, you can expect Bad Company 2 to arrive in the first few months of 2010".

it's bullshit they went back on their promise of 40 player multiplayer and reverted to 24 players. I was looking forward to that the most.

I was also very disappointed that they didn't increase the number of players per game but if they can improve everything that made the first game so stellar, maybe we can overlook it.

blame the xbox.. i read that the devs had to reduce the max players to accomodate the xbox. the xbox cannot handle 24+ player games.. i forgot the link of the dev interview but if you want proof: name three xbox games that allow a 32-player match.. none, nada, maybe one

For the original xbox did 60 players online.

FF11 on the 360 handles many more since it's an MMO, as does phantasy star, champions online.

the amount of players people chose to allow in an fps game is dependant on how they want the game to play, not every developer wants a giant clusterf**k of retards running around like in 90% of +24 player games.

I just want to know if the squads can be bigger than four players. That ruined the last one for me.
